Have been going here for years. Always the same Good food and nice people. Prices have gone up like everything else but serving sizes are large and very tasty! great view from deck and interesting stuff at inside table. Home type service. Pies are great we always get 1-2 to go pies.

I have been coming here for years. Love the quality of the experience. It is like you are having breakfast or lunch at the family farm house. Also, very impressed to see how they have progressed with the products, like blueberry juice and tea leaves. A must buy. See you next year.

We went to Blueberry Hills for a family breakfast and it was well worth the time to get there. The menu is "hit and miss." Some items were definite "hits" (biscuits and gravy) while others were definite "misses" (waffles). Although the portions are good-sized, it is not an inexpensive breakfast place ($60 plus tips for two adults and two kids). Although it has a relaxed country motif and feel, don't let it fool you - they know how to make money off you with the muffins, drinks, etc. Nevertheless, we were glad we went but wouldn't want to do it every day.

Price/person: About $15 including beverage.

Kid friendly: Yes.

Duration: Variable but plan on 1.25 hours during an "average" time
- This place has a "cult" following even though the menu really isn't that incredible.
- If it is busy, you can wait 30 to 45 minutes to be seated. The only problem is that you've already ordered! So it is easy for you to have to sit where you didn't want to sit because your food is waiting on you.
- During busy periods, you will feel rushed at those in line hover to get your table.

Recommendations:
- Go early in the morning or for lunch. During mid-morning hours (think 10am), it gets busy.
- Blueberry Hills excels at standard fare but loses it on more refined items. Biscuits and Gravy were awesome. Eggs Benedict were not.
- Sit outside - the view is great. If you don't, you are trapped upstairs (not scenic and you feel like you're eating in a large closet/loft, or downstairs with little privacy).
- Send a "scout" to get your table, especially outside.

Goods:
- The food is definitely above average but variable between dishes. While some of our group raved about their food, others were very disappointed. Given the price, this shouldn't exist.
- Dog FRIENDLY! But only on the back deck...
- A scenic view - of the orchards but NOT of the lake
- Quaint decorations. Imagine if American Pickers opened a restaurant...

Bads:
- It is slightly expensive for the quality of the food
- It is about a 20 minute drive from Chelan
- It can get rather crowded
- Too much variation in the quality/taste of the food
- Service was rushed and hardly professional
- Blueberry Hills exploits it's "barn" atmosphere to get away with average to below average service and asking you to bus your own dishes

All in all, it's worth a visit but isn't spectacular. We're glad we went, but wouldn't go there everyday.

Like everyone else was recommended by family to go here. Location was top notch out on the veranda. Breakfast was very tasty and good value. 1 pick up point. The jams were all locally made and very tasty but when I asked for orange juice was given a bottle of " from concentrate" plastic bottle stuff. Not a major issue but some fresh squeezed would have completed everything else.
