Went with a group of 8 for their early dinner specials. Great service, food was excellent. Several had steak, pasta, and ribs too. Wasn't cheap but very well worth it.

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?
