I read reviews and was reluctant to eat here but the food was very good and the early bird prices were decent. The Signature Falls Halibut Olympia was very good and could have rated a 5 but was short on crab. The Prime Rib had very little fat, the way I like it and was very tender. The clam chowder was great and I do not like seafood.

The view of the old Olympia Brewery and the Upper Tumwater Falls topped off dinner. The Bread Pudding was tasty but could use a little rum sauce.

This is an old time favorite place in Olympia but I hadn't been in years. We took some friends out for a celebratory thank you dinner here. The view is spectacular, especially when the falls are lit at night. But the food was absolutely mediocre and bland, and SO expensive. I really can't believe that people ever go back here after one trip.

Awesome view, if you can get a window seat. Service was great. Food was OK and pretty pricey. This was our big expense of the weekend and had it not been for the view we would have been pretty disappointed. Best part about eating here was being inspired to check out the Tumwater Falls Park!

Hard to find if you are not local, but worth finding. Situated above the Deschutes River at Tumwater Falls. Early dinner includes yummy shrimp cocktail, green salad or soup and choice of several entrees priced at $19.95, followed by dessert. Nice ambiance, friendly efficient staff. You can take an after dinner walk along a path beside the river and falls. Glad we found it!

We love the lovely view of the falls, and the food is delicious. Our visitors are always impressed and enjoy their meals when we take them there.
