Thanks so much for making the time to share your recent experience with us. We especially like the word amazing and are delighted to acknowledge our team for providing this level of service to you. Yes - we were recently awarded the GRAND Award by Washington State Wine Commission - and that just thrills us - a recognition of the list and the work we are doing to promote wine. Did you know that March is Washington Wine Month? We, of course, have all kinds of celebrations going on around this....hope to see you here for one (or more) of these events.

How can you go wrong with a couple of fireplaces in a cozy dining room? We are so happy that you appreciated the experience and made time to share with us. We cannot take credit for the views - and Mother Nature sure does her job well around here - but we will take a bow relative to the food and beverage and service....thanks so much! Hope to see you again soon.

“Good onsite choice”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We had dinner and breakfast using our restaurant credit that came with our room. We ate off the lighter fare menu which is half price from 4-6pm (make sure you order everything including dessert before 6 pm or it magically turns to full price) The clam chowder was really good. The fish tacos were just ok. The creme brûlée was pretty tasty. We enjoyed the Sunday brunch more. The French toast was a big hit. The eggs Benedict were good and the potato dish was unique. It is pricey but for a special occasion you can splurge. I like the local farm element.

Thanks for the very specific review...we must be hearing from a "foodie" based on your detailed descriptions of our various offerings. We couldn't agree with you more - the Clam Chowder could win any contest - as we say - it is filled with clams! That's on our menu every day and we have quite a following with that item. Stay tuned for some improved tacos...something we haven't mastered but this is on our radar. And yes - indeed the French Toast and the Eggs Benedict get rave reviews - as well as the potato hash (takes a bit of time to prepare, but oh, so worth it.) Hope you'll make it to one of our upcoming Farm Dinners...sounds like you'd be an appreciative audience. Until then, happy dining!

“Breakfast to dinner, you can't go wrong!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The service and food offerings are all excellent. Surprisingly, it can quite busy with locals in the early evening as they have an excellent Happy Hour. Err on the side of making a reservation!

Thanks so much for this review - we are delighted that you enjoyed the service and the menu. Indeed, we are fortuante to live within 10 minutes of several remarkable farms - and that provides a wealth of variety in our offerings. Thank you for the suggestion to our guests/readers to make reservations - yes, we are small and popular with both our locals and our in house guests. So, we do, indeed encourage reservations so that no one is disappointed. Hope to see you again very soon.
