Great place!! Good food and drinks. Great atmosphere, some days and times live music!! Located at a golf facility. Nice view of the Palouse prairie!

Ate there twice while in Pullman last week. The first time had homemade lasagna, and the second a meatloaf sandwich and fries, both of which tasted like my grandma used to make in the 80's. Very authentic. Eat at Banyans if you want to go back in time… In a good way!

Overpriced, overrated. Some of the worst service we've ever had. 2 couples total in party. Staff was very unknowledgeable, inattentive and unfriendly. Food cold and entrees were not what we ordered. Management handled it, but such a shame for a great view. Could have been so much better!

Our foursome decided to eat lunch after a morning round. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The crab and lobster bisque is very good, but the Cougar Gold Lobster Mac and Cheese was incredible. Cougar Gold Cheese makes everything better. This is also a great place for dinner.

The food here is average at best and the service is poor. It is used primarily for the golfers as it is right on the WSU Golf Course. I am surprised they can't get a better kitchen crew. I am a chef and would love to help but don't have the time.

Banyans is a typical golf-course restaurant with a wonderful view. The word typical should not be taken as an insult; by typical I mean that there are a lot of good choices and the food is all well-prepared and presented, as at many high-end golf course restaurants. You can get a great burger and great fries along with many other... More

Had lunch here last month while meeting with some folks for business. Restaurant is located on the golf course on the outskirts of campus. We were promptly seated inside. Had a bbq chicken salad which was decent. Food was OK all around over table; nothing spectacular. The place does have a good wine list. The views were pretty good from... More

Waited to be greeted and seated, 3 + minutes, nothing. Lost our business, gotta be kidding me. Bartender and waitress saw us there, waiting..seriously?? No WAY we're sticking around and spending money, beautiful summer evening on the terrace or not.
