“Amazing cocktails!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We were so pleasantly surprised by this place! Ended up going two days in a row for happy hour, the drinks were that good. We had a large group and tried several things and all were wonderful.

The Moscow Mule was amazing, as were the infused martinis. All appetizers we tried were awesome, in particular the homemade pretzels with beer/cheese sauce.

Best of all was probably the wonderful service...our waiter went above and beyond. Can't wait to go back on our next trip!

“Shocked and Awed! (in the best way)”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My expectations of the restaurants we'd find in Pullman were not high. It was delightful to be so very wrong!
We loved this place! It is bright and open with beautiful and simple decorations. There are cozy booths, tables that can be moved to handle a crowd, bar stools - and a really welcoming bar with unusual and delicious cocktails invented by the bar-staff. Try them; they are not weird concoctions, They are delicious! The staff was totally attentive and friendly.
The food was unexpected -A great menu with lots of choices & variety and excellent portion sizes. I had macaroni and cheese with lobster and the cheese was developed by Washington State Univ nearby. You won't get that many places in this country! All 3 of us loved our meals! We actually had lunch there (awesome Chicken Caesar salad) and then went back for dinner. Oh yes, only 3 desserts - all to die for! Go to this great restaurant if you are ever near Pullman.

“Try this place.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Fine wine selections. Only place to have a seagoing trout dinner but the steamed crab to crack is lots of fun as well.. Quite enjoyable.

“What a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

It was such a treat to find a new restaurant in Pullman when we visited over the Memorial holiday. The menu was innovative and interesting and the wine list reasonable. The staff was friendly and attentive. I would definitely return on future visits to the area.

“The food is just okay, not worth the money”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The food isn't awful, but it is way over priced, especially for Pullman. The menu is too small, there isn't a lot to chose from. If someone else is paying for it, it's worth it, otherwise save your money and go somewhere cheaper with the same kind of food.
