“Decent food, Exc CS, over-the-top decor!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My companions and I ducked into the little lounge in this restaurant after a day of shopping and found the year-round Christmas decorations to be very sweet, jolly and MANY~ the place has a certain "air" about it from all the decor that lends itself to a jovial, friendly atmosphere. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, but won't "hover" and that's appreciated.

The food is classic diner, with a German flair. The Reuben was classically prepared and a generous offering. The brocolli cheese soup was bland, though thick and creamy, tasted like it came from a package and didn't impress. The turkey sandwich left something to be desired, sort of cafeteria-like, but all ingredients were fresh... it was just sort of bland.

I've eaten here a few times before, for breakfast and lunch, was satisfied both times. The food isn't "inspiring" but is fresh, well-prepared middle of the road and a decent value for the price.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

The food was very good as was the service. The Bloody Mary mix is VERY spicy; be warned. The music was obnoxious; not what you'd expect in such nice surroundings.

“Bar visit”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

We were popping in and out of places, and after a visit to one establishment the server told us this was a favorite place of theirs. Watched some football and had a couple drinks. Great service.

“The Tumwater Inn”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We only EAT to live - not live to eat. The soup and salads are wonderful and not expensive....and have a menu that is not all German - since Leavenworth is a "German-type" town.. It is in a convenient place, close to the motel as well.
