My friend and I met here for lunch - halfway between our cities. We always like to chat before we order and the waitress was okay with that, checking often. We were two of three females in the restaurant. There are a myriad of local memorabilia items on the walls and ceiling, creating a fun atmosphere. Our menu choices were... More

Although it looks plain and simple on the outside, you enter another world when you go inside. Filled with literally thousands of fun, crazy, amazing, jaw dropping memorabilia hung on every inch of the walls and ceiling, I had to close my mouth and keep walking. It is a fascinating and very fun environment. We went for lunch. Very good,... More

Bubbly service on the afternoon we visited, bright, moderately clean and a great building inside with great displays to keep the eye and mind busy. The meatloaf sandwich was very good, the seafood was fresh and the salad well above par. A very good overall experience and I would not think anyone would be disappointed with the offerings here!

We stopped here for lunch on our way south. It is just off the freeway. The deco is fascinating with all kinds of sport memorabilia and bar memorabilia all over the place. The service was good and staff friendly. I had the Hawaiian Chicken Salad which was good but way too much lettuce and a little on the expensive side... More

Fresh Pacific Oysters, pan Fried, not overdone. Fast service. Not too much noise--I sat inside, there was a bachelorette party outside, they were rowdy. Lots of drinks on tap but I had tea. Early dinner or late lunch, about 3 pm. A good stop to regroup after or before the Billy Frank Jr Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.

They have a pretty good menu with plenty of burger choices. Specials everyday and plenty of televisions to watch along with a pool table. Outdoor seating is available along with "to go" orders. Lots of visual stimulation all over the walls and ceiling; a very impressive collection. A wide variety of burgers choices and you can choose between fries, tator... More

Followed the reviews for Olympia went to a recommended resturant but alas it was in the "wrong" part of town for my wife. So we decided to head south and lucky for us our paths crossed this resturant. I ordered has Browns (prepared correctly), eggs and sausage...prefect.

But still average. Had a burger and fries, the fries were like McDonalds, but the decor was interesting and Norma's Burgers was closed for a staff meeting, so what could a hungry person do?
