The best chocolate peanut butter pie I've ever tasted! The BBQ was OK, their sauce was different. Portions were very generous. My daughter loved her macaroni and cheese dinner (homemade version). Service was great.

Ramblin' Jacks offers a large varied menu and equally large portions. The food is great and service is friendly. When we last visited, I had the Smoked Chicken Salad with walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette dressing and my husband had the pepperoni pizza. Both dishes were very good, plus they always bring focaccia bread out (yummy!). The restaurant is in a site that long ago was a car dealership, and to their credit, the owners kept many of the delightful architectual details of this historic building. The decor is upscale. The bar is small but it's always buzzing with customers and a great place to get an after-work drink or meet friends. Ramblin' Jacks also has the room to accommodate large groups so it's a good place to celebrate special occasions. This is one of the best restaurants in downtown Olympia and a great place to take out-of-towners.

Food is consistent if not particularly inventive. Menu is diverse--there's something for everyone which makes it a great place for groups or families. Bar is great. Real small town community feel. It's always busy and you always see someone you know. Service is usually pretty reliable.

The food is always delicious, nice variety from salads, BBQ, specials. Atmosphere is busy. Service can be great or really slow depending on the server. They are near the theatre so can be overly crowded on certain nights.

I've eaten here 3 or 4 times with friends. The service is good, very friendly. The food is consistantly okay, even the tri tip. How do you make just okay tri tip? Even the pizza was a C+. Still, it is a popular place so maybe I'm wrong.
