“Everything was very good. Only thing we could 'complain' about was one item where the menu name was not in our opinion what it actually was: Red Chili Chicken Green Papaya Salad would not survive a lawsuit challenging it as a salad. It is in no way a salad. It was good, but not quite what we were expecting. We all had different entrees and were all very happy with them. The presentation, the quantity, the flavors, all were very good. They also have a very extensive wine list. We will go back, in fact we are looking forward to it, but will make sure to ask for a little description from the wait staff on anything we don't know about first hand.”

“Amazing brewery... I first had their beer back in 2009 and been a regular customer since.I keep coming back because of the amazing, craft beer style brews and the top notch customer service. All three servers: Nevada, Ashley, Claire will go above and beyond to make sure you get what you want and treat you like family/long time friend. I don't think you can go wrong or find a better brewery in the area.OHHHH and it gets better! They now serve in addition to beer, hard cider and wine!!! So everyone in the group can be happy and find something to match his/her taste.Check em' out...”

Passing through, it seems like any other unremarkable small town in an otherwise beautiful mountain setting. Tonight we stopped for dinner at the Ellensburg Pasta Company. What a nice surprise! Excellent lobster ravioli and first rate service. We'll be back again.”

“This is a gem! Quaint, clean, restaurant with great pizza, wonderful wine selection, and excellent service.I am picky about my wine, but that didn't bother the server who poured 4 different sips until one was suitable. Not only was it suitable, I bought the whole bottle. The entire staff was pleasant and seemed happy to wait on us and happy to be there. I take that to mean they are treated well by the management and owners.The food: My husband is a connoisseur of pizza. It's hard to impress his palate, but he enjoyed the pepperoni pizza and couldn't come up with a negative thing to say. I ordered the Gemini pizza with mozzarella, prosciutto, truffle oil, and arugula, and it was delicious. The crust was tasty and different from the normal pizza we have most places.Price: we thought the prices were reasonable to slightly high, $14 to $20+ for an 8" personal pizza, although it is worth the great service, atmosphere, great food, and wine.We will definitely return!”

Brosky's arrived at the venue exactly on time and dinner was served exactly on time! Dinner was absolutely delicious! The family had ordered pulled pork and chicken sliders with baked potatoes. The smoked garlic compound butter that I put on my potato was divine! Brosky's food and service was perfect in every way. Brosky's gets five stars from me. Rock Star service! Carry on, Brosky's!”

“We stopped here for dinner but restaurant was super busy. They set up space outside with heaters and blankets for us, which turned out to be a great experience. Food was one of the best Italian food we ate. We were contemplating Olive Garden vs this and this was hands down the best one. We are Indian vegetarian family and never saw so many vegetarian options in Seattle area in Italian restaurant. Service was awesome as well ?

Vegetarian options: Tri color tortellini were awesome”

Red's Fly Shop Cafe 14700 WA-821, Ellensburg Cafe • $$$

“Food and service were excellent.When greeted we asked for a table for two for lunch. It was about 3:45 on a Friday. Not in the busy summer season either.NO ONE was in the restaurant, they had a few people “at the bar”, not even at a bar table.Cool.So the lady says, “Do you have reservations with us this evening?”…-No“Let me check for availability….” ?I snickered like, really?I did feel unwelcomed. Yes we’re had sweatshirts on as we were hiking. But that doesn’t mean anything.I’ve worked in the restaurant industry my whole life and in my experience, when the first question you asked someone is, “Do you have reservations?” It kind of makes them feel like they messed up and NEED reservations.However, when the seats are empty you’re not making any money and NOT ONE OTHER TABLE CAME IN WHILE WE ATE LUNCH. Also she seated us at the one table with a post so all we could see was a shed and some cars/boats.Not much of a complaint, more of a heads up on how you treat people.We tipped the suggested 21% and the food and service were very good.Honestly I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable going there as a “walk in” guest at this point.”

Sugar is an adorable little restaurant deep in the heart of Ellensburg. The atmosphere was great with lighting, music, and decor. But let me tell you, the food and service were the stars.My wife ordered the Pad Thai with tofu, and I did the Green Curry with chicken. Both were amazing! The plating/presentation was great & the portions were generous without being overwhelmingly huge. We both had enough & were able to bring some home. Also, be sure to try the coconut milk Thai tea; you won't be let down.”

“Such a relief to find this hidden, dog-friendly oasis on a long trip on a hot day in the high desert! We had trouble finding a restaurant in Ellensburg that would allow our two furry girls. This place let both our dogs and our teen sit on the patio (minors can't go into the bar inside but can sit on the patio and use the indoor bathroom on the restaurant side). The back side of the restaurant and bar have a big, lovely deck and grassy, willow-shaded yard and even a trickle of a creek... picnic tables in the grass, too. Had a few nice beers on tap and classic diner burger/sandwich/fry/tot fare. They even had fry sauce! Service was really friendly. Will stop here again, even when the dogs aren't with us.

“Friendly & fast service… sometimes. I’ve recently had a barista that’s not a fan of her job or something? She always looks cranky. I was in recently & in a rush because I had a cab coming. She decided to make my drink after the customer’s drink behind me. I was a little shocked & pressed for time. Once the drink was handed to me, it was overflowing. {Frappuccino} & when I put the lid on it made a huge mess that I felt obligated to clean up as I’m looking at the cab outside the window & barista was on to a new drink order. Get in the cab after waiting over 10 minutes for my drink, taste my drink, it had zero flavor. I tried to pass it off to my 18 year old daughter- she loves Starbucks- she said it was a hard pass as well because it had no flavor. This is definitely not the first time that this has happened at this particular Starbucks & they don’t quite follow the recipe rules that Starbucks have & you sometimes get a bad drink. I’m not afraid to say something but this time was in a hurry. These drinks aren’t exactly cheap so it’s nice to have them made right like I’m used to over on the other side of the mountains where drink recipes are strict.The rest of the baristas are always kind & friendly & mostly will go out of their way for you. I also think that this is the best store to get new inventory. I have always been able to find the best tumblers here & others items like my new keychain. They seem to replenish inventory quickly. Overall this is a good Starbucks but it would be nice if recipes were followed to a T as expected by Starbucks… even if it takes a minute or two extra of the baristas time.”

“I made an online order for my mom’s birthday, and when I came in to pick it up about 10 days later they didn’t have it. They did however put something else together quickly. They were super nice at the bakery and I really appreciate their efforts to complete the order, rather than just saying they didn’t have it. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t exactly what I had wanted, but it still came out really nice, and cake is cake :pOverall they do a fantastic job here, the sweets are beautiful and delicious. I’m very happy with their work. Thank you Safeway bakery staff! :)”

“I'm sort of partial to the "first & last chance" tavern, it is owned by my cousin. Small establishment chocked full of fun and some what naughty signs and pictures. Very clean and everyone is friendly.”

Cinnamon Roll

“This is a Cinnabon inside a gas station, Arby's, rest stop etc, but what else can you say? -- just the incredible smell of the the Cinnabons draws you in and yes, they are incredibly good in taste, but I'm sure not in calories, but sometimes, it's just what you have to ”

“I have frequented 301 for a couple of years now with my service animal by my side. 301 is the bar in Ellensburg. Very accepting employees who genuinely enjoy the service industry. It is also the go-to spot for the other bar employees in town when they clock off, if that tells the prospective customer anything. Always a large selection of oft-rotating specialty drinks, and you can’t scoff at being sponsored by RedBull. Your mileage may vary but know that they get wall-to-wall busy at roughly 11PM Thurs-Sat, it’s always good people watching.”

“Mikah is the shining star here. That’s Mikah (mee kah). She is great. Food service and cute as a button. Good ole fashioned Carolina lady. She has the regulars wrapped around her finger. The banter between she and then is comical. Reminds me a little of Flo from the TV show, Alice. Come see her. Coffee is fresh and my food was excellent.

Parking: Parking lot isn’t paved and can be pretty rough. I’m ok with that. I like it. The young generation can’t/won’t run through here like it’s a race track.”

“I went there about 10 am Wednesday. It was really quite peaceful and clean. I like the set up how they have like outdoor table inside to give it an outdoorsy patio energy indoors, its was really pleasant.I got the white chocolate coffee which was really good in creaminess and sweetness. Good balance but I didn't feel like it was strong enough. As a trucker that drinks ton of coffee I feel it's more of an artesian coffee so I'll cut it some slack. Still really good.The real star of the show was the Ruben sandwich. Right crisp on the rye bread the sauce meat ration. Just melts in your mouth. It's not a massive sandwich and you feel good when you finish it not overly bloated. It was accompanied by chips.Service was nice and helpful.”

“Our son who is studying Anthropology at Central Washington University invited us up to have pizza with him. He had taken his partner the week before and was so enamored of the place he wanted us to experience it. My son and wife split a half and half pizza hot honey one side and sausage and fennel on the other. I had an amazing steak and mushroom grinder that I would absolutely order again. They have a full bar and my whiskey sour was on point. We also happened to show up on trivia night and I unashamedly destroyed everyone in the superhero category. If you are in Eberg I absolutely recommend eating here.”

“Just came here to give kudos to the baker. The frosted lemon cookies are so frocken delicious. They taste like lemon pie but just less over powering. It was 15$ for 4 but they’re pretty big and half of a cookie fixes my sweet tooth.
Also recommend the biscuits and gravy, the Caesar salad, the burgers. Genuinely all around great food and customer service. My husband and I love the Palace for date night

Wait times on weekend mornings can be a bit long because they’re busy FYi”

“The service was fast and friendly. They don't call names for drinks or lable them. This wasn't a problem as I was the only one ordering at that moment. Later it was a little confusing for two that ordered at the same time. Neither cusomer knew whose drink was just made. After asking they had no issues. The dining area is small but decent for the size of the buiding. It looks like it is designed for guests to be cozy if it becomes full. Unfortunaly the single restroom has a thin door. You can hear what happens inside that room if your sitting near it. Overall a good experince and I will return.

Parking: It's a small parking lot with a few spaces.

Wheelchair accessibility: Easy enterance and room to get through most of the interior. If people are sitting at the center counter a wheel chair may have difficulty getting through the isle towards the front.”
