They are doing it right here! The wait staff was the right amount of attentive from the door to dessert. ALL (not a typo) dishes were done with nice touches; not to be spoiled in this review. Special 'hats off' to the Chefs' take on Chicken Ravioli...my kids loved it and I ordered it on our next visit. Now stay... More

Very relaxed atmosphere. Food great. Good selection of wines. Waiter was incredible. Chef certainly knows what she's doing. You never know for sure what will be on the menu. The chef changes the options to match the quality of the food items available. A little pricy, but not too much for the total experience. We would recommend this establishment wholeheartedly...

Who would have thought that a gourmet restaurant would be here? It is marvelous, and must-go. The menu changes daily and is superb. We were four, and each had a different entree. All were divine.

Mackinaw's is a small place but it has a great atmosphere and the food is outstanding and you'll never get tired of the menu as it changes. The waiters were friendly and very attentive. This was a special evening provided by our daughter for our anniversary and we weren't disappointed. We plan on going there often as it has become... More

We're staying in Centralia & read about this restaurant in Chehalis so gave it a try. It is on the main block of their old Town which is very cute. You enter through the Washington Hotel sign. The main restaurant was loud from a large party next to us, so when my friend asked our waitor Josh if we could... More

While visiting our daughter in Chehalis, she, my husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. All three dinners were excellent and our server was attentive and polite. I had the Parmesan Crusted White Fish which was seasoned and cooked to perfection! We look forward to dining here again. My only criticism is the location of the restroom. One must... More

The food is what you find in the large city. It is delicious and well worth the try. Probably the best dinner I have had in 5 years minus the wife. The atmosphere is high class and romantic. The wait staff is excellent. The wine list changes often and is superb. The fish or steak is taste! Best food for... More

Laurel learned her craft mainly at one of Portland's best restaurants. Her menu is limited to a few great choices and the wine list is solid. We have been here many times and find the food to be of very high quality as is the service. The restaurant is small with simple décor in a historic downtown building.

A nice variety of seasonal, intriguing dinners that hit the mark...for beef, seafood, chicken and pastas. For our first dinner during summer 2015 and our second dinner in June 2016, the meals were cooked perfectly, and spiced very interestingly and accurate as to the menu description. You can tell a caring and innovative chef is in the kitchen. Quality wine... More
