Went with my mom for lunch and it was good. Sat in the bar, and Spencer took care of us. Nice quiet neighborhood feel to it. Would definitely return for another meal. Fantastic views of the waterfall from the restaurant.

We have lived in Olympia for 15 years, and hadn't eaten at this restaurant until tonight. We have eaten at lots of other restaurants, and until tonight we had decided Olympia really didn't have any good restaurants for dinner. Four of us went to dinner....More

Food - Overcooked fish and farmed salmon (we’re in Washington State! is this even legal?!). Plates, plating and menu options are dated. It’s like they found their stride in the late 80s-mid 90s and haven’t made any changes since. The other patrons were 55+ and...More

Friendly, professional, prompt service. Great view, clean. We are calamari snobs, so we were hesitant to order it. It was excellent! The lunch special was wonderful. Highly recommended.

Falls Terrace is an example of a classic supper club. Gorgeous views of the falls with an outside, covered deck. Has an "early bird" three course, limited menu for less than most items ordered individually. The salmon was a bit strong in the seafood fettuccine,...More

The phone number we used is 360-943-7830, and is the one published in the Olympia phone book. They open at 11 in the morning, so maybe the timing?
