From tasty breakfast waffles and omelets to hearty soups and sandwiches for lunch to surf and turf dinners, you’ll find the menu a blend of old favorites and terrific new dishes. Grilled salmon, New York strip steaks, lamb Ragu, homemade meatloaf and fried oyster po’ boys only start the list; choices also wander from fresh pear salad with organic greens, red wine cranberries, prosciutto, pistachios and Gorgonzola crumbles in berry balsamic vinaigrette to starters like fried goat cheese and sweet—spicy Wicked Shrimp and desserts like bananas Foster. Tip: Hit happy hour (4 to 6 daily) for $5 oysters and calamari, $6 pulled pork or blackened rockfish tacos, $7 crab wontons or hummus plate, and $8 sandwiches with fries — with draft beer and well drinks just $4.

“Had my first visit last week and was very impressed. Such a cute atmosphere, and we received delightful service. I had a delicious cocktail and shared a couple entrees, and everything was hot, delicious, and fresh. I will definitely be back — yay local businesses!” —­ Yelp review by Hayley B., Olympia

“It’s a great place where the vibe is relaxing and cozy, even romantic even. The staff is very polite, attentive, and quite knowledgable about the menu. They ensured that our drinks were filled, the food was perfect, and the portion sizes were just right.”
