This review is long overdue--we ate there on our way across country last fall and it was terrific in every way. The manager went out of his way with a special food request (spinach enchilada!) and the dinners were delicious. The service was swift and very friendly, the prices affordable.

The food was very good and service excellent although the menu was not huge. I was very happy with my meal.

My sister told me how wonderful this place was supposed to be. I ordered a pasta dish called drunken shrimp. I should have been drunk. The noodles were sticky and hard to find shrimp. The dish was luke warm and very tasteless. Hardly a soul in the place and poor service. Maybe it was a bad night?

We enjoy Their food and especially vegetarian options when driving through La Grande. It is nice to have some real food on a trip as opposed to the greasy fast food easily found

The menu here is huge, covering American, Italian and Mexican. Jack of all trades master of none? My son had a burger and I had a salad, both quite good but not enough to be very good.

The restaurant offers dishes that are healthier than most of La Grande - local lettuce and other sourced food when in season, and regional Waygu burgers. Beyond that, nothing too special here. Downtown location is great and nice indoor and outdoor seating. The menu isn't that diverse - to me the choices are salads, wraps which are essentially the salads... More

After seeing the four star reviews we decided to try it out. Don't order margaritas until the bartender learns how to do a decent one. Also, if you're into juicy medium rare burgers with flavor, don't order the Wagyu burgers. They are very lean, dry and not much flavor. The service was good and tended to us well. Close walk...

Great service. Great food. They know how to grill a chicken. We had chicken on our taco salad and chicken on the Caesar salad. Both had their own unique Tad's and were moist and delicious. The wagyu hamburger (we had the one with the bleu sauce) was really good.

Wow, the best food in town! A little on the expensive side, for a family of five, but definitely the best food in town. Service is lacking, but like I said, best food in town.

We went yesterday on the recommendations of a friend and Trip Advisor. We had the Wagyu burger which was good but not great. A burger and fries at $15 is a bit much and not what I expected. Two burgers and two iced teas, $35! OUCH. Probably won't venture in to try other dishes. That's a very expensive lunch for... More
