Blueberry Hills

Reviewed By Wolf P - Chelan, Washington

Come early on the weekends because the secret is out- this quaint restaurant tucked among the blueberry fields and apple orchards just about a mile from Downtown Manson is THE place for a hearty breakfast. And if you love pie, take home one of their delish home baked pies.

Bear Foods Natural Foods Market & Cafe Creperie

Reviewed By DeeFry - Seattle

We had the delicious BearFoods signature crepe with pecan pate, mushrooms, cranberries, arugala, and cheese. It would actually be even better without the cheese, especially since so many folks are now going whole food plant based. Folks were nice, and parking was right out front.

This small comfortable coffee shop is walking distance to anyone staying in Manson. RIght outside of the Wapato Point entrance it is a short walk from anywhere on the property to walk and get a morning cup of coffee. Very comfortable establishment with indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff and awesome 360 degree views of the Chelan valley and lake.

Winemakers Grill at Wapato Point Cellars

Reviewed By busconi - Washington State

We came for wine tasting the other day, and the server urged us to try dinner, said the burgers were so big you would be hard pressed to put your mouth over them. So we came back to give it a try.

We came around 6:00 and there was a 45 minute wait for a table outdoors, and 15 minutes for inside. We selected indoors and went to the wine tasting room, grabbed a bottle of red and waited about 10 minutes before our table was ready.

We ordered the Angus Burger and true to the wine server's word, it came piled high with lettuce and tomato, a thick patty of beef and crinkly, crispy onion strings....so high you could not possibly put your mouth around it. And it was delicious!!!! It came with your choice of steak fries, sweet potato fries or a salad. Before dinner a bread and butter platter came to our table.

I must say, this burger is the best in all the Chelan/Manson area...a real treat.

Service was friendly and attentive. There was a considerable amount of time between our order and when the food arrived but it just allowed for table conversation. On a beautiful summer night, it would be nice to sit outside....lovely grounds and very family friendly....some small toys for the kids to play on and grass to run about.

Lake Chelan Winery

Reviewed By Helen C

The Baby Back Ribs were tender and tasty. The Beef Kebabs weren't as good. The lettuce in the salads weren't that fresh. Free corn bread was ok. Service was fast, staff, polite. The atmosphere among the vines was interesting. Just cold at night with no indoor seating. There were only 3 outdoor heaters.

Marcela's Cocina Mexicana

New restaurant in downtown Lake Chelan. great service excellent food. We had the steak and chicken fajitas - very fresh and well prepared. Sat at the brand bartender was super friendly and nice. Known for best margaritas in town. Interesting flavors such as hibiscus or tamarind. Top shelf margarita was the right mix of tart and sweet.

Reviewed By Wendy B - Shelton, Washington

Carne asada was very good, same as their coffee. They serve complimentary chips, salsa and good guacamole. I ordered El Matador with a Chile relleno and enchilada and loved it! They have an extensive variety of seafood plates like Shrimp enchiladas, Chipotle Shrimp, etc... I need to check it out next time, definitely coming back!

Small local bar with good food! Tasty food and good conversation. Nice owners. The kind of place where you leave with a large pile of napkins on the table since the burgers are large and juicy.

Reviewed By Robert S - Seattle, Washington

I ate at this sub-shop twice just to make sure the first time was not an aberration. I had the same sandwich twice, the Stehekin. The sandwich was very good but it took me 20 minutes to get my sandwich the first time and 35 minutes to get it the second time. The second time there was a car show going on across the street and in fairness, the place was busy. The problem is the place is small and they do not have enough employees working during the peak hours to get you in and out in a reasonable time. I don't consider either wait reasonable for a sub-shop. 10 minutes should be the max even during peak hours. The employees that were there were friendly, two of whom seemed to be the owners. The food was good but the waits finished me off. I won't go back.
