I love 2 handed burgers that are so big that if you put them down, they tend to deconstruct. These burgers are tasty behemoths with all the normal fixins that are plenty but not enough to minimize the beef. The fries are a bit greasy for my taste but are good enough that I enjoyed every one of those bad... More

They have the best prime rib on the Twin Harbors. Absolutely wonderful every time we go there! They bring the cart around so you can pick the size, great food and drink

Came here a couple of years ago and was knocked out by the quality of the prime rib. My brother came out from S Carolina and after telling about the Welcome Inn, we wanted to get back and belly up to our prime rib discovery. Between the mediocre prime rib and poor service, we won't be back again. Bummer!

My wife and I had heard great reviews of this place so we stopped in last Wednesday. This happened to be the same day as their prime rib special. It was really good! We had hamburgers as well and they also had my favorite micro beer on tap! The place is small with only a couple of tables,but it is... More

The best Prime Rib in a neighborhood pub? YES! Every item offered here is excellent and the prices are great, but the Prime Rib is to die for, and that's a fact! The whole Prime Rib slab is brought to you so that you can tell them how much to cut off of it for your plate. You are charged... More

I was skeptical but friends wanted to go eat here. Fine. But the food! Oh wow! The owner Kevin is not stingy, that's for sure. I had the prime rib and he will let you pick the thickness of the cut you want. I went back again on my way out of town and had a Blt. Emphasis on the... More

We've driven by this little out-of-the-way neighborhood place every time we come through Hoquiam on the way to the beach. They always have food specials advertised on the side of the building and we've heard the food is really good. Other then the Hobbit sized front door that I smacked my head on everything was great. Good people, friendly owner... More

Great things sometimes come in small packages. Not much to look at but you can't ask for a better burger. Burgers like they used to make, big juicy two handers. The owner (Kevin) is a great bartender, cook and gracious host. We left smiling and full, looking forward to his prime rib specials on Wednesdays. Yum!!!

After spending a wonderful couple of days celebrating our wedding anniversary in Ocean Shores, we mentioned to the hotel manager that we would be looking for a place to get a good hamburger on our way home. We would be driving through Hoquiam and Aberdeen, WA. She suggested the Welcome Inn and gave us specific directions. She mentioned it was... More

Great little home town pub with good selection of beverages, the best french fries in Grays Harbor and awesome prime rib on Wednesdays. If you're lucky you will stop in when the owner/cook has just filleted fresh halibut for sandwiches.
