Went there for dinner and ordered the sirloin. Thankfully, the waiter was kind enough to be honest and say that their servings are small. I still stuck to it though bec I wasn't that hungry. True enough, the meat was small.

Service of that waiter was slow but he was nice. Equally nice was a waitress serving another area who happened to pass by and took the initiative to offer a toy for our baby.

As for the food, everything was quite average. The best part was their famous Pie Shake. True enough, there was pie and pie crust blended in there. I ordered the banana cream pie version and it was delicious.

Overall, as a tourist, I won't come back for dinner. But I will definitely come back just for the dessert.

We thought this would be like Denny's but it is about 10 steps above. They are all over Portland and Vancouver. We ate at the Vancouver Mall Restaurant twice and everything was very fresh and tasty. Chicken fried steak, lumpy mash potatoes and gravy,
Fish and Chips, Cuban Sandwich(pulled pork). All very good.

Thank za travel

If you are looking for old fashioned diner food, this is your place. Forget the gourmet stuff--this place has basic food fresh out the microwave or just plopped on the grill. They has breakfast specials if you get in before 9.

Went on 1 Jan and was advised by one of the waitresses that they were slammed in the morning 'til 2. Must have been the reason that they had 2 wrong things on both of our orders. I ordered burger w/ tater tots and was served fries. Wife ordered tater tots w/ salsa and sour cream on the top....cooks forgot the sour cream. The items ordered were delivered by another waitress therefore, could NOT blame the serving waitress. I further ordered their FAMOUS PIE SHAKE and had the Northwest berry trio w/ vanilla ice cream and it was YUMMY! First waitress noted that the cooks and hostesses were paid time and a half for holidays but waitresses were not paid that way anymore. Their tips were supposed to make up for the $. If the # of waitresses we saw for our orders were any indication of how the tips were to be divided then it might be deserved.
