We just dropped in and had a wonderful meal and we're both pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was high quality with great sauces. The house salad was not special, so they could improve there, but for the rest of the meal I gave them the highest rating. Recommended.

While in the Tri-Cities we were craving pizza. We saw this place had good pizza. As we drove up, we almost left as it was a ghost town. At the time we left Gonzaga was playing in the Sweet 16. We walked in and saw no TV and immediately realized why it was empty. Aaron, our server, served some nice... More

Being from the south I was skeptical and told the waitress, "Etoufee and NorthWest" are an oxymoron, she smiled, but I'm sure she had no idea what I meant. Truly, this was one of the BEST Etoufee's I've ever had. Truly authentic.

I wanted a quick bite for dinner... and this was slower than that. Waitress took forever to get my order... charged extra for a cheese substitution on my bacon cheese burger. Alaskan amber was a great choice of draft! Atmosphere was not very special.

They had a varied menu. Not high on ambiance but food was good. We met there for a late lunch and business meeting. at 1:00. Moderately busy when we got there but nice and quiet to have our meeting by 1:30.

My son other rd the "fondue" as an appetizer. We received a watery thin chili con quest. He then ordered a salad with our pizza. Most restaurants deliver the salad prior to the entree. Hope, not here; delivered together. The pizza arrived luke warm, the mozzarella on top of the meat, and the crust undercooked. I can say the sausage... More

Fat Olive's popped up while I was reviewing a couple of other Richland establishments and it's been awhile since we've eaten there but we used to treat ourselves at Fat Olive's. We love the antipasto, best olive tapenade I've had, never been disappointed by the pizza and save room for dessert. A little spendy and the atmosphere is nothing special,... More
