“Awesome greasy spoon, huge servings. My personal favorite breakfast/brunch spot. Tip: Order a Moonmosa, a Blue Moon with OJ to fend off that hangover!”

“Ice Harbor Two locations - same company. Their Clover Island location is an upscale dining experience. It has a more extensive menu, a full-service bar, and the same great beers as the Brewery/Pub. I enjoy meeting friends on the patio and watching the boats while having drinks and an appetizer. The 206 N. Benton location features good pub food as well as their award-winning hand-crafted ales and lagers. At various times they have live music and trivia nights at the pub. We have heard some good music there! Both are within easy driving distance of the You & I Gallery, The Roxy Theatre, Rockabilly Coffee, The Leather Alpaca, Scraps, The East Benton County Museum, Foodies, Downtown Kennewick”

“A personal favorite, with authentic Indian cuisine. Friendly, family-run local business in a city full of bland chains. Lunch buffet is great value and I can recommend the Thali dinner option with your choice of curry. Tip: If you want your Vindaloo properly spicy, tell your wait staff you want it Indian hot, not American hot...”

“This is a must do when you're in the Tri-Cities area. I am so glad we went here it was one of the highlights of our trip while we were in town visiting the different wineries. We had nine people in our party and every single person absolutely thought it was the best meal ever. Try The prime rib dip it is simply mouthwatering delicious. Service was great and the speed for such a large party was very good. We enjoyed the outdoor seating in the back. Next time we are in the Tri-Cities we will definitely come back and recommend this to everyone we know”
