We always come here for dinner every time we come to the area to visit our kid at the University. Best place in Pullman, it's nice to see such a small town have a big city attribute like Black Cypress.

The Black Cypress is the only place to get a "big city" restaurant experience in Pullman. The restaurant has a good "vibe": casual, warm, and tastefully decorated with university professors lurking in the booths and tables.

I love Black Cypress, but lately, when we've been there, they add bacon to all of the specials. Every place in Pullman--and perhaps the whole U.S.--feels compelled to add bacon to everything. Some people don't eat meat, either for religious or health reasons. Please stop...More
