    Small menu, but still something for everyone and high quality. Tasty and filling. Staff is friendly and helpful.

  2. Brad Hanson

    We had Jamie as a server and she was phenomenal. The food too was just out of this world. Make sure you get the clams for an appetizer!

  3. Wendy

    I visited here for the first time and i is great! My work often takes us to lunch here now. Great appetizers and salads. Nice upscale atmosphere. A little spendy.

    Atmosphere was nice, busy place. Server was really good to our table. Everything on our plates we enjoyed. It was nice to have a change for the evening and this place awesome.

    Best place in Spokane for dinner

    I took my mom for her birthday. We had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed our food. We especially enjoyed the tomato artichoke bisque. And of course as always Hay J’s infused water was a hit! Perfectly refreshing with our meal.

    Lovely service our server was Natasha, food tasted great. Glad I picked this spot as my last stop in the US.

    Started off with a cup of chowder and bread that was exceptional. There was a wonderful earthy taste to it that made me wish it was a bowl. Had the lions Maine risotto and added salmon. Fun fact I don’t like salmon, don’t usually order it, wanted to see if the chef had the skill to change my mind. I was not disappointed, it was delicious. I will definitely be going back. There is so much on the menu I have not tried yet…

    Your first thought pulling up is “really, a gas station parking lot?” Don’t be fooled as this really is fine dining. Amazing food, nice wines, and great service even when they get busy. We’ll keep happily coming back.

    went to my birthday dinner with daughter,wife and son-in law.Had my first disappointing meal there, halibut sat under a heat lamp and dried out. Meal was barely warm. Same on other dishes at table, slightly warm.

    Don’t let the location scare you off! My wife and I have been going to Hay J’s for years and we always recommend it to family and friends. Although it is connected to a gas station, I believe it is one of our favorite spots to go for dinner in all of CDA/Spokane area! We went there for dinner last night and I had the shrimp pappardelle and my wife had the crusted halibut, both were very delicious!

  13. Julia Kush

    Surprisingly cute place inside.
    The food is very good and the service was great too. Will be back

    This is a must! Great service, excellent food! Thank you!

  15. Nicole Yasmenko

    The food was good, space is small especially the bar seating area. Drinks are a pricey and not very strong. Might try again in future.

  16. T S

    The ribeye steak was huge and cooked perfectly

  17. Shirlene Betts

    Wonderful food. Great service. Love the atmosphere that they have created inside. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    I want to first say that we normally LOVE Hay J’s and gladly drive from the South Hill but Sat night we had the best worst service! We got there early(4:15pm) and sat at the bar because we did not have a reservation. It took our server over 30 min to finally come over and tell us that the bottle of wine we ordered was not available but tried to suggest a couple others. Our server, bless her heart was clearly on her own & she was doing her best but the manager, multiple other servers and even a cook were too busy talking to a couple who were clearly regulars than to assist her with us, any of the other bar tables or others in the restaurant. We had to ask for a water refill as they were all standing there talking. At the end of our overcooked, salty and not great meals our server suggested the bread pudding, which I ordered. I figured why not that’ll be good since I didn’t eat my whole meal. Our server was told the bread pudding was still baking and another server looked at me and proceeded to say in a very blunt fashion “were out, order something else”. Needless to say, I didn’t order anything else and we paid our tab and left.

    For the price you pay at Hay J’s I’d like to think we could expect and receive better friendlier service. Not sure we’ll be going back any time soon.

    Reasonable food. BUT beware! They now charge 3.5% to use a credit card. I’ve never seen this at a restaurant before :(. Egregious.

  20. Glenn Kellogg

    Fantastic food, service and drinks… as usual!

  21. Natasha Heffington

    This restaurant is very clean and food very good. Great waitress and clean bathrooms. Love we we are able to find excellent quality food. Hard to find now days. We will be back sometime. Thank you.

  22. Angila

    Food was amazing!! The restaurant was really loud. That was my biggest complaint
    Definitely not a romantic night out type of place but great for friends having a get together. I would say the food is worth the price. I am a really good cook. And the food was good enough for me to be impressed. Not a lot of places do that for me.

  23. Dr. Wade Larson

    Amazing food and service. We’ve never gone wrong.

  24. Joshua Tucker

    One of our “go-to” date night places. Food is outstanding, some of the best salads in the area, and the service has always been top notch.

  25. Peter Moylan

    Every plate tastes as of it was dessert 😋 A great date night out with your girl kind of place👌

  26. Ryan Alvis

    This was quite the surprise. You’d never guess what’s inside this place by looking on the outside. I’m sure they doo that on purpose. This is the “diamond in the rough” , the “sleeper”, the unexpected grand slam.

  27. Ned A

    So good. I have had fantastic food here every time I’ve gone. The burger is phenomenal and I had great tenderloin steak as well (add the sherried mushrooms!!). There aren’t many restaurants where I can say as much. The food is on the pricier side, but for what you’re getting, the value is there. In other words, treat yourself!

  28. Carli Durick

    Food is absolutely incredible and the service is always outstanding!

  29. Lyn G

    We’ ve always liked this place for their fresh fish and salads.

  30. Katie Gillies

    Great pizza, good service!!!

  31. Kelli Bosman

    Seriously! I’m not kidding The food here is absolutely exceptional! Recommended by a local! In a strip mall at a gas station. I was apprehensive…. it is so darn good! Your new destination dinner location. We sat outside on a lovely little deck, and Amanda’s customer service so was amazing! I had the tenderloin and my husband had a NY Strip steak. They were cooked to perfection. Served with apsagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Bread with dipping oil and vinegar was brought to the table prior to our meal. I’m coming back just for this amazing food and exceptional customer service!

  32. Maria Friesen

    Went there tonight for our anniversary dinner and the food was amazing! The atmosphere was quaint and romantic Our server, Kylie, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We will be back again!

  33. Christie Anderson

    Go here and especially go next door to Piccolo’s. Pretty sure they are the same owner. Great food. Totally unexpected in a gas station strip mall. Step inside or eat outside on the raised enclosed patio. Exceptionally good food at either place.

  34. Trevor Lane

    Great wine and people! Top shelf meh at best though. Good food, pretty good service, and as good as an independent non-franchise Olive Garden-ish can be inthe grand scheme of life.

  35. Michael Pickard

    Had just heard that Hay J’s Bistro was the place to go in Liberty Lake — at the end of a gas station and shop area – so would not otherwise have tried it out. But so glad I did! Food and service were great. Clearly a great cook — awesome presentation and tastes were amazing. Definitely going back when I am in the area! Go try it out – you will not regret it!
