An area landmark worth finding. Tucked under the ever-expanding freeway, it can take a bit to get here, but its really worth it. Friendly and efficient staff. Fabulous views of the falls from the restaurant and the lounge. Upscale menu. I thought the food was...More

You can dine and enjoy a view of the Tumwater and old beer factory. We have been going to this facility for over 60 years and still consider it a nice place to dine.

Beautiful location overlooking the waterfall, which was spectacularly lit at night. We really enjoyed our window table. Food was mediocre - bland clam chowder, dry halibut (on special), and a flatiron steak that wasn’t very good.

We took my mother-in-law to here for her 96th birthday. The family all showed up. There was about 25 of us. All her grandkids and great grandkids were there.

Overlooking the Deschutes River and Tumwater Falls. Right in the center of town but the scenery seems miles away. Large trees, river with salmon, falls. Had a great Northwest shrimp louie and bread pudding. Pricey but a classic old restaurant.

The Falls Terrace restaurant, family owned, gave us a fine dining experience. Our window seating offered grand views of the Tumwater falls. The big old former Olympia Brewery added to the sights. Great dinner, fine service by a young college lad. A noisy brat at...More

The phone number we used is 360-943-7830, and is the one published in the Olympia phone book. They open at 11 in the morning, so maybe the timing?
