It's tough to find a good restaurant that also has great cooks & and waitresses, but I've got to say this is it! I don't know his name, but the tall blonde dude is a great chef!!! If he's working, you'll sure love your food. And the waitress, Cathy! She's great and remembers your name! We recently moved to the area and have been thinking about asking for his work schedule!!!!

A good stop in Potlatch! I can't remember the gal's name, but she was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wines. Flights, by the glass and snacks available. She even brought out a bowl of water for our little pup who laid under the table the whole time. It's a very small shop and pet friendly. A bigger dog might be better at an outside table.

Excellent and scenic trail along the river. This hike is kid friendly and we walked till the trail bridge. E returned back after reaching the river bridge. Took some snaps of few people fishing along the river. Drive is through rough roads for last 3 miles but manageable.

Wowzers, this distillery has many varieties of akavit and its cousins (vodka, gin), also whiskey and warming liquors. Chuck was a great host with rich knowledge of the production, products, places + people of inspiration. The incredibly enticing scents when you enter will keep you captive until you try a sample. A great destination to chat, sip, and revel in the experiences.

Great place with calm waters for kayaking or paddleboarding! Lovely views and there's a waterfall that you can find if the rain has been good... which... let's be honest, when is it ever not good over on the west side of Washington? Haha. There's a nice area with a park for little ones and picnic benches for enjoying a great day out by/near/on/around the water.

Great views and great food! I ordered the fajitas and asked for extra vegetables and they really delivered. So many vegetables, it was amazing! We also got the queso and it was a very large serving enough that there was leftovers with my family of five. Highly recommend.

On my way to a golf trip we stopped in here to grab some beers and I was blown away by the quality of the beers. The bartender, who I also believe was the brewer, was very friendly. We had to stop by on our way back to take some home too, it was that good. I now stop by here every time I am driving through Hood Canal, this is a must try for any fan of craft beers.
