While visiting family in Oregon and Puyallup, we had to make a couple of runs up interstate 5. My sister always suggested that we give this place a try since they are friendly, are not a chain restaurant and my mother used to frequent this place years ago. So, we gave it a try. It's a good down-home restaurant. It's... More

Were recommended here by staff at Midway RV Park for a supper recommendation. The pot roast was said to be "to die for"...and it was. Best I ever had. Our server was friendly and efficient. Excellent home style cooking.

We've been to this restaurant for lunch several times over the years as we've passed through Centralia along the I-5. It's conveniently located adjacent to the Centralia Outlet Center with immediate on-off access to the highway. Our visit this time was just prior to noon & the hostess advised us that the bar was not as busy as the restaurant... More

Great place to take the family. I'm local so we go occasionally to have dinner or breakfast but it is also good for lunch if your out shopping. Nice change from burgers and tacos.

Great atmosphere and good food. Cute little trinket shop as you walk in seating is a tight in places but food is good. I enjoyed the pot pie and spiked lemonade.

Lots of food, but lacking in quality. I found the amount of fat and carbs to be quite overwhelming. Even in my salad. We have eaten there before but usually breakfast so this lunch did not meet my expectations

I wish I would have stumbled onto this little place a month ago. This is food you would expect to get from mom's house. So much food I ended taking it home for breakfast the next morning. Ty!

We were visiting from out of town and saw the good reviews this place received from TripAdvisor so we decided to check it out. We liked the very quaint country decor, clean facility as well as very friendly staff. We ordered the pot roast and pulled pork and both were excellent. They don't have many options for those who are... More

About what you would expect. Our dinner was good and the service was top notch (and fast!). They had a large menu of items to choose from, and don't think we could have gone wrong with anything. They also had liquor options if wanted. The one negative was the rooster crowing. Every time the door opened, a rooster would crow.... More

This is always consistent in their approach to food. You get large helpings of good old home-style cooking. The country décor is entertaining to look at and brings back memories of items I grew up with in the 50's and 60's. Wait staff were pleasant and attentive to our needs. They don't rush you with your meal. Every time the... More
