“heavy on the grease, but large portions”
Reviewed March 23, 2010

We had breakfast here about 7 weeks ago. Fair selection of offerings, but food was soaked in grease. Service was good.

“What a find”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

Just a few minutes from Long Beach. Looking for dinner after an extemely bad experience at another location down the road. we found the Berry Patch. A tiny little place that had plenty of room. A family of 7, that splurged, was able to eat fresh seafood for less than $90.00 with tax. The service was great and fast. Those were the biggest calamari and oysters I have ever seen. Bring cash or checks, they don't take plastic.

“All I can say is that it was an 'experience'. Avoid if possible”
Reviewed March 3, 2009

Working my way thru all the little restaurants in Ocean Park I tried this one for lunch. Menu is mediocre and from some 50ies time warp. There is a car theme.
Finally settled on kielbasa and potato salad. They cant mess that up I thought .....famous last words. Food was greasy; potatos and mayonaise made the salad. Waitress was very busy but was trying.
Actually the people watching was the best part of the meal.

“Yuck.”
Reviewed November 23, 2008

I ate breakfast here. All the food (eggs, potatoes, toast) tasted of dirty grill oil and was hard to choke down. The service was indifferent and rushed. The coffee was AWFUL. Don't eat here.

“Unique chicken fried steak yum ”
Reviewed July 16, 2007

I live near this little restaurant which is across the street from our famous Jack's Country Store, on Bay Street in Ocean Park, Washington. Just come up Pacific and turn right at the stop sign and immediate left - next to the Dunes.

I've had a few things on the menu. The oyster omelet with cheese is fantastic - here on the Peninsula we KNOW oysters - we're next to Oysterville, really! And the chef, at least in the morning (the one with the cute hairy face), respects the ingredients and never over cooks or dries out his omelets. He also whistles and sings the entire time he's in the kitchen, and it's a joy to listen to someone who loves their work!

So try that oyster omelet, for sure, but if you are a chicken fried steak person, get this: it's PORK! It's a gorgeous, pounded pork cutlet, boneless and tender, not a dry old loin chop but a tenderized, 1/3 inch thick, freshly breaded (NOT FROZEN) steak, perfectly seasoned not with just the obligatory salt and pepper (and some leave them off, don't they?) but with seasoned salt with a hint of garlic. The breading is crisp but not all dried out, a light golden brown. This is FINE food, not the old standby, chicken fried steak. The oysters got me to like this place but I LOVE THAT CFS!

Eggs are perfectly cooked, not dry. Pancakes and other breakfast items are always fresh. The gravy is typical white gravy, maybe from a powder, but it tastes GOOD, like milk and good seasonings with some meat in there. I'd say the weakest link in this place is the coffee - be great if they had a darker roast as their main pot. To get that, you need to order an espresso drink at higher cost.

Also find ice cream on those hot summer days, the above-mentioned coffee drinks, and good, old fashioned service - they bring the food when it is done! Great place to stop while you decide to head up to Ledbetter State Park for a nice long hike, or that surfboarding thing you love.
