Our foursome decided to eat lunch after a morning round. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The crab and lobster bisque is very good, but the Cougar Gold Lobster Mac and Cheese was incredible. Cougar Gold Cheese makes everything better. This is also a great place for dinner.

The food here is average at best and the service is poor. It is used primarily for the golfers as it is right on the WSU Golf Course. I am surprised they can't get a better kitchen crew. I am a chef and would love to help but don't have the time.

Banyans is a typical golf-course restaurant with a wonderful view. The word typical should not be taken as an insult; by typical I mean that there are a lot of good choices and the food is all well-prepared and presented, as at many high-end golf course restaurants. You can get a great burger and great fries along with many other... More

My wife and I returned to our alma mater WSU where we met 50 years ago and closed the day with drinks and dinner at Palouse Ridge Golf course restaurant. We had a very nice large Cobb salad w/ blue cheese dressing and a Banyan burger w/ crunchy French fries. It was such a lovely night we dined al fresco... More

Had lunch here last month while meeting with some folks for business. Restaurant is located on the golf course on the outskirts of campus. We were promptly seated inside. Had a bbq chicken salad which was decent. Food was OK all around over table; nothing spectacular. The place does have a good wine list. The views were pretty good from... More

Waited to be greeted and seated, 3 + minutes, nothing. Lost our business, gotta be kidding me. Bartender and waitress saw us there, waiting..seriously?? No WAY we're sticking around and spending money, beautiful summer evening on the terrace or not.

Went here with a large group for dinner on Saturday night. The food and service were so good we ended up going back the next day for Sunday brunch. Can't say enough about how great we were treated.

This restaurant is truly one of the worse places we have ever eaten. Service was ok. Views lovely but whatever you do don't eat the food. We had way over done prime rib even though we requested rare. The halibut was watery and mushy with frozen vegetables. The calimari was just breaded frozen rubber rings. We had 2 chicken dishes... More

After a disappointing outing two years ago, we heard recently that Banyan's was back to excellent. We had the sunset dinner, which comes with appetizer, salad or soup, entree, and dessert. There were four choices of appetizers, and the three our party had were all delicious. The hummus, a locally grown commodity, was delicious, and the warm pita bread and... More
