“Went here on 12/2/2018 after attending the Victorian Christmas fair in Puyallup. I ordered a Riesling with their Asian Chicken Salad. Had amazingly attentive quick service, enjoyed the unique power grid buzzer that would get set off when a train would go by (novelty thing in their decor). Thght the chicken spice and duration cooked was spot on. Light fresh dressing, the bread with it was also very tasty and fresh. Id go again and get the same thing! It wasn't that busy when we went so please keep that in mind with expectations when served. very good spot tho! ”

Italian Restaurant

“Hands down, you need to try the Martini Clams here, aptly named because they are served in a huge martini glass with a delicious broth. While this my menu favorite, all of their menu items and drinks are really good. In sunny weather, the outdoor patio is great. And inside, its quaint and quiet and your meals and beverages are served by quality staff that give each guest special treatment. Chef Tom is often seen chatting with patrons and asking if they are enjoying their meal. If you're here in March, Martini Madness is a crowd pleasing month-long event worth experiencing. And you get to keep your martini glass. Cheers!”

“To us...it will always be the Puyallup Fair. It was recently changed to the Washington State Fair. This is the biggest state fair of the year starting typically in late August running through most of September. Many very famous concert performers, rides, games, events. There are always events going on at the fairgrounds close bye. Check the events calendar for interesting options”
