“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! ”

“What's not to love about this quaint little joint. It has a menu that is family friendly but a step up from your chain restaurant. Locally sourced products, homemade sauces and combinations that are new and improved from the usual. Not to mention you and get a tasty beverage for the adults in your group while still dining with the munchkins. ”
