Always good, always festive, always open which says a lot on Vashon Island. Melinda does a great job and obviously knows how to run a restaurant. It would be nice if they could warm it up a bit though - we always freeze in there.

The menu is creative and the food good. We especially like the Sunday menu because we can have brunch or lunch which pleases all in our family. Food and service were wonderful. We look forward to another visit soon.

I'm not from here so my review will be limited. I've been to this restaurant a few times but I've never been anywhere else on the island for dinner. I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and there service. I've also noticed that restaurants in the Pacific Northwest seem to be a little slow regarding drink refills; not at the... More

Relaxed place for a mid-afternoon lunch after a scenic drive round Vashon island. Good value fish & chips, great burger, huge falafel, everything with chips. Good to see local drinks on the menu, cider from Dragon's Head and perry from Nashi.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We all ordered the Alaskan salmon special with sweet potatoes puree, grilled asparagus and wedge of zucchini. The salmon was prepared just right with the pecan-crust and light mango glaze. The service was prompt and the ambience comfortable. We have eaten here before and definitely plan to go back.

We took the ferry to Vashon Island from West Seattle to deliver one of my wife's art pieces to an art center for a soon to open show, and stopped at an interesting restaurant on a corner of the center of the town. The restaurant had been the town hardware store for many of the early years of the island's... More

Whether your'e visiting for a day or two or living here you will surely wind up here. That's not because it's great, but because it's one of only 15 restaurants, and the only one that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It tends toward American food with a few twists on other things like tacos, and the occasional special. It's not... More

I ate amazing blueberry buckwheat pancakes with an almond milk latte for brunch. The foam was so thick and creamy. I can't eat gluten or dairy and the food here is so varied that you can bring anyone with any food restrictions or none to eat here and they will get a delicious meal. Plus the location is great for... More
