I have tried a few breakfast options and they are all good so far. They have the friendliest staff and catered to our one year old. With their awesome service, cute location, and good food we'll visit again!

It's a very popular neighborhood diner and lounge. The surprising views are of Commencement Bay, commercial ships, and colorful sunsets. The lounge, SandBAR, is like "Cheers," where everybody knows your name. We go twice a week for dinner and karaoke. It attracts talent from all over the Seattle to Olympia area, and the show is top notch entertainment. It's family... More

I remember this place in its former iteration as having great burgers so decided to give it a try. Was disappointed when served a dry rather overdone hamburger patty and greasy fries. See photo. I'm sure there's more incentive to eat here on a sunny summer day when you can enjoy a peek-a-boo glimpse of Commencement Bay.

I had seen this place before, but had never been there until recently. I've had a few breakfasts there and a lunch and have to say that this is my go to place now for breakfast. It's quick, it's good and it has the best pancakes in Federal Way! Nice service and reasonable prices.

My wife and I had received a gift certificate for Xmas and so we decided to stop by the Sandbar a few Friday nights ago and use part of it. We both ordered light beers and two of their classic hamburgers with French fries, as we had heard that they were really good...well they weren't that night. The hamburgers were... More

Two buddies and I were going out to lunch and since the Browns Point Diner had gotten a nice write-up in the local paper, I suggested we go there. One of the guys said no way was he going there...bad past experience, but when I told him about the article and said I'd buy, he agreed to go. We all... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch, haven't been in this place since it was Archie's quite a few years ago. Looked clean, service was attentive and our lunch was very good. I had the Cheesesteak sandwich & hubs had the burger. Food hot, fries also very tasty ! Two things bother us a bit. The cook had quite a long... More

Breakfast at Brown's Point Diner was a most enjoyable experience. Warm welcome, fast service, hot food. What more can you ask for? We sat at the bar and had constant coffee refills. We asked for grilled tomatoes instead of home fries and the cook actually came up to us and asked us how we would like them. Things weren't always... More

My husband and I go once or twice a week. Food is fresh and great quality with large portions that could easily be a second meal. Love the staff. Those waitresses are friendly and so accommodating. We feel like part of the family. The diner is very clean and nicely appointed. Regulars are there often.

The Browns Point Diner has an attentive staff and large quantities of food, (actually too much). The food is quickly delivered in a family-type atmosphere.
