Great vibes, energy & clearly popular with locals, my visits 'off-season' two nights in a row proved entirely satisfying. Staff welcomed this single diner as if I had an entourage even though they were busy as heck. And the food? Big reason for my second night's return. I'm a gluten free girl and wow does this kitchen get it right!... More

This was my first visit to NXNW. I ordered the daily special which was Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. The chicken was delicious! It was cooked perfectly and even though it was thin it was still filling. The gravy was very good. The mashed potatoes were delicious as well. The green beans were cooked just right... More

The description of lobster risotto (including the champagne reference) had me anticipate something delectable. The Lobster was tough and chewy, and the risotto was gummy and mushy. I couldn't finish it. Staff was fine, and setting comfortable - but couldn't get past the food

This is a great place for family, business, fun with friends. The Mexican Martinis are great. The beer is good as well. My favorite is the Hefeweizen. The food tastes wonderful. Some of my favorites are the scallop appetizer, Cedar Plank Salmon, the pork tenderloin, and the scalloped potatoes and risotto. Friends have had the meatloaf (Sunday special), rotisserie chicken,...

Food was very good and the two in-house-brewed beers I tried were excellent. I bought a bottle of NXNW's amber to go and enjoyed it later.

Dined on the patio here with a friend. Our meals were good but were luke warm when they arrived at the table. The flies were a bit out of control and there didn't seem to be any methods for control.
