Great food. Poor service. Cliquey. Plain and Simple. if you're part of the Olympia "Inner Circle," it's a good time. If you're not, don't even bother going. Food is good, but not worth dropping several hundred dollars for a lousy attitude.

Always took my mom here either Memorial Day or Labor Day. She couldn't get around that well but always loved seeing her grandchildren ride the carousel, eat some popcorn & then duck into the Vic for a bite to eat. All part of a glorious Watch Hill experience. No matter what yo choose to do here - tea, snacks, lunch... More

My husband and I tried to eat at this restaurant twice while in Watch Hill. The lunch we had was good, but we had a very different experience when we went back on a busy Friday night. I was 37 weeks pregnant and it was 90 degrees outside so when we learned there was a 45 minute wait we went... More

The food is magnificent, ok, really good. The bar service is excellent, detailed, and fun. Note a single negative would dare enter the doors.

We were hungry and thirsty after a walk on the beach, and saw two signs, one reading "tea room", the other "wine and cocktails" I'm not sure if there's actually a tea room, but there is a bar, and a very well stocked one, even if the sign over it reads "Temperance". I had seared tuna and my wife had... More
