Started in 1934 the Bee Hive has had years of practice making good home cooking. They serve breakfast (until 4 pm), lunch and dinner. It's a sparkling clean diner with a classic long counter as well as tables. A great place to meet friends or bring the family. I came in for a cold beer (which is available), but I... More

Pricey. Loud. Service is...sketchy. Food? While some dishes are ok? There are some not worth a doggy bag.

This small town diner is stuck in time- some people like that and some don't...We make sure to stop in every time we drive out to the Washington coast so that we can get the razor clams and the desserts. The service isn't the fastest (and yes, it can test your patience) and the food is not a great value... More

This place is one of my favorites ! We've traveled the 80 miles each way just for the Razor Clams, Homemade Soda Rolls and the Wild Mountain Blackberry Pie! The Prime Rib on Friday and Saturday nights is fantastic - be sure to ask for the "End Cut" if you like the bark and all the spices ! My Mother... More

Great menu different soups of the day my favorite is navy bean on Friday's. They have put a good menu together, great wait staff friendly, and the service is fast. We eat here at the very least 3 times a month if not more. Would probably eat there more often if our wallets would let us. Their prices are very... More

We stopped for lunch. Only one table had diners. A server brought menus and said someone else would take order. Sat and sat. About 8 minutes went by and another couple came into restaurant. Same server who brought our menus brought some to them and then returned to take their order. A second server came and took dessert order from... More

The wait staff is excellent and very friendly. The cook staff on the other hand sitting at the counter watching the cook staff. Wear dirty greasy clothes scratching their hair preparing food eating as the cook. Was too gross to watch let alone eat. They used to be top notch not any more.

I was desperate to find a good breakfast in this rural area of Grays Harbor and Pacific counties. I ordered a basic breakfast to minimize any potential disappointment. The place was not busy at 10:30 am-ish on a Wednesday. While my bacon, hash browns, eggs and toast were edible, I was starved and my breakfast was served cold. The hash... More

A good old fashioned restaurant that has not lost its way in modern food portions and quality. If you ever want to eat a meal like you had way back when, this is the place.
