Passing through Washington on a business trip Mackinaw's Restaurant was recommended to us by the Holiday Inn Express. We thought it was excellent........quiet, relaxing atmosphere, good service and excellent food.
After a traffic ridden 3 hours with 3 hours to go we stopped off in Chehalis to find a restaurant and not a fast food place. We were first hesitant because of the location and saw the menu prices. What a great decision! We had a flank and shoulder cut that melted in our mouths, The service was relaxing to allow us to enjoy the meal. The potatoes, greens, and coffee was top taste. Although the menu was limited it was a pleasure to sit, relax, and enjoy a quality restaurant. I'll be back... It was well worth the money and time.
My wife and I live in the Chehalis area where this restaurant is located. Our first visit the server asked if we wanted to dine on the roof top. We went up to see what it was like and gladly accepted to dine there. That was a mistake. The service was so slow and when we commented on it the waiter said the elevator was slow and the rest of the downstairs restaurant was busy. We then tried this restaurant a few weeks ago to give it another chance. The food was good but once again the service was far from what to expect with the prices they charge. The male server seemed less than caring and attentive to our needs. Its too bad because this could be a nice place but the good food does not outweigh the bad service, the long wait for your dinner to arrive to the table, the menu cost, and having to ask for everything you need. If you're paying for what you get then you shouldn't have your experience to be one of asking or waiting for what you need. When your out for dinner it should be relaxed and not stressful. Unfortunately, I will not be a returning customer.
I am here on a business trip and dropped in to try Mackinaw's Restaurant. I must say that not only did I find the cusine delicious, but the atmosphere was so relaxed and wonderful, I really hated to leave. My compliments to Chef Laural Kanh! She was short handed, and she waited on us, took our order and prepared the meal. I bow to her for the splendid time I had there, and look forward to my return trip in May.
This place is yummy! Whatever is in season and fresh in the area is transformed by the chef and sets the menu. How fun! These dinners are great for special occasions and celebrations. Make your reservations now!
