After reading some of the mixed reviews, I was a little nervous about eating dinner here. But it was New Year’s Eve and only one Bar and Grill open so we stopped here Saturday night after a day of snowshoeing on St. Helens. We were greeted by 2 friendly Servers who took our drink orders right away. Full bar, and... More

My wife and I stopped in after a long day on the trail. We were greeted with a great smile, and told we could sit anywhere we would like. We had menus and water almost before we were seated. Great choice of food from fish, to steak, burgers to excellent salads. My wife's burger came with a steak knife, and... More

We stopped in her for breakfast on Labor Day, only to find out they do not serve breakfast Monday to Friday. Only on the weekends. So we had lunch instead. The waitress we had got our drink orders wrong and also the food orders. Food was average, but nothing great. Not sure that we would stop again.

This place was across the street from where we were staying and was one of two dining options. Food was good. Servings were ample and fairly priced.

My family seemed to really enjoy their food and beer (cougar fries and bacon cheese burger). The waitress was very nice. But they really struggled to get my order right. I let the waitress know that I am allergic to cheese/dairy protein (pretty serious one) as well, I can't eat meat as it makes me ill. I ordered the Garden... More

Great quick stop for a bite to eat after hiking. Service was quick and friendly. The food was excellent. I got a grilled ham and cheese sandwich and tots and my husband got the Ape Cave Sandwich which he would also recommend.

we went to the cougar bar and grill and we got a table, and took a while to get our order taken. after we got our order in, a couple tables got seated after a few minutes. and we wait about 40 minutes in we notice those tables getting their food before use and one leaving after they were done...
