Had lunch here with family. The food was good, the view from the deck was beautiful but a noisy waiter was disturbing. Our waiter (a young man) stood close by our table and even joined into our conversation. We all felt a little bothered by...More

Lunch was good and reasonably priced. The crab bisque was very good. The service was slow and our food was served lukewarm. Our waitress spent most of her time on the deck conversing with other customers while our food set at the pass for 17...More

Banyans is horrible. I have been there multiple times, either as a banquet guest or as a guest in the restaurant. The food is mediocre at best and very expensive. The service is not all that great either. The golf course is decent.

We ate here twice during our last stay in Pullman. Service was excellent, food was also very good. The view of the surrounding hillside and course is very pretty. Try the Buffalo Chicken bites for appetizer. They also make a super Moscow Mule.
