Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, very fast and clean. I think they may have been a little understaffed as we arrived around 5 p.m. or so, and after the place began to fill fast, and the girl that was waiting on us was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. She was great! The food was okay.... More

The waitress could not have been nicer. She was quick to get our drinks and order. The food came quickly and was very tasty. My son had the biscuits and gravy and it was HUGE. This is our new breakfast stop on the way to the beach. Highly recommend for a good country style breakfast!!

We stopped in the Rusty Tractor after clam digging the other night, dog tired and hungry. We sat in the bar as you can stroll right in and sit down. One of the specials that night was salmon, bake potato and a great mixture of vegetables. Surprisingly the meal was only $13.99!!! What a bargain, very tasty as well. Service... More

Timidly came here after reading reviews not sure what to expect. Went into empty area that said to wait until seated. Was somewhat expecting to be there for a while but within seconds waitress game and sat us. She was extremely friendly especially to our young daughter. Patty melt was best one I ever had. Wife had Caesar salad that... More

The Rusty Tractor is another favorite dropping-in place on the way to the Washington Coast. This restaurant is one of several, in western Washington, that are good ole country kitchen style eateries that I thoroughly enjoy. Always a treat!

We give up. We tried this restaurant last year and found it adequate. We like it because it has easy access and parking for a truck and travel trailer. We went this year and found it understaffed and very disappointing food. There was one waitress who did her very best to handle the five tables occupied while we were there.... More

After the World of Outlaws event got rained out, we, like a lot of others, decided to grab dinner at this place. Busy, busy, busy' we had to wait a bit, but Katie Rose made us feel right at home. We had a lot of laughs with her and when the food arrived, it was great! We will be whew... More
