This pub is in our neighborhood so we stop in occasionally for a quick meal and beer. As others have said, it is noisy - all hard surfaces, so the sound just bounces all over the room. Their burger is good, as is their clam chowder (the latter served only on weekends). They do have one weird convention, which I... More

Stopped here after a bike ride on the Chehalis Western trail about 10 am on a Sunday and the breakfast was great and the place is really funky with unusual decor. Looks like it would be a fun place for drinks as well. Very loud however as more people, arrived probably because of ceiling height so I suspect it can... More

We had an early morning on the water and swung by here on the way back. Nice decor with old logging equipment hanging on the walls. About 10 tables in dining area next to a good sized bar area. The food was solid. The country potatoes was really good and a good switch from regular hash browns. The eggs benedict... More

Good place to stop in for a beer and food. Right down the street from the Chehalis Western Trail. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Food was very good, chicken fingers were the best, great beers on tap.

We went as a family to the restaurant for breakfast. I had the eggs benedict, that was very good. My son had the pig in blanket and my husband had the biscuits and gravy. I thought mine was the best meal. The sausages (pig in blanket and gravy) were a bit different and not to our linking. My hubs is... More

My wife and I drive by this pub on the way back from a day's outing and decided to give it a go. Very friendly people. The food was really good. My wife had the blue cheese and bacon beef sliders and they really rocked. We stopped by again the next evening on the way back from whale watching and... More

We eat here for breakfast often. The food is great, the serving size is more than generous and the bacon is especially delicious. Unfortunately, they serve breakfast only on the weekends. The place is packed in the evenings so they must have good food then too. They have special popcorn and movie nights and also taco Tuesdays.

We went to dinner at the South Bay Pub and Eatery. Small place, more of a bar than a restaurant. Food was average, nothing special. Beer was cold. Seems to be popular with locals and bikers. Rather noisy. Probably wouldn't go again.

Appealing small neighborhood pub. Welcoming staff. Lots of locals and basic American fare correctly described and prepared. Just off Chehalis Western trail so makes for a nice spot to eat/snack/hydrate.

I love this place... whether for a bloody mary (one of the best I have ever had) or weekend breakfast you will find great, freshly made food with friendly service. It is local, and comfy. It is sometimes loud, but I still find myself feeling right at home there. Also has very good prices and happy hours, daily lunch specials... More
