I love burger places that make it easy to create just the combination you want, and the Strand offers every conceivable option. My favorite is a beef patty on a brioche bun with American cheese, bacon, sliced onion and tomato, mustard, mayo, ketchup, and pickle relish. Perfect!
Onion rings were nice and lightly battered with a crisp crust. Eat these first as they have a short shelf life.
Hot fries were the only miss. They're just fries made soggy by being drenched in hot sauce. Better to dip.
There's a spacious outside dining area overlooking the lawn.

Despite its looks, this place is a real gem. All the food was excellent, and the outdoors area is a lovely setting. Himalayan food seems to be quite similar to Indian food, so we went with that. But my wife's chicken strips and fries were also great.
Surprisingly good wines and a terrific porter are very reasonably priced.
I'd describe the service as "frenetic", but it was certainly efficient!

First off, a shout out to Caleb. Of the thousands of restaurants we've been to, he's possibly the best server we have ever encountered. What a delight he made our visit, acting as the perfect host. Kudos!
TMACS was our best meal during our days in Walla Walla. The food and ambiance were both just what we look for when dining out.
There is ample outdoor seating, but we chose to dine inside and enjoy the dramatic interior. The bar and tables surrounding it can be a bit lively, but the upstairs mezzanine is an intimate respite from the activity below. We loved the low lighting levels upstairs, and wish more restaurants were like this.
All of the food we had was excellent, with complex flavors and deft plating. Particularly noteworthy were the Local Melon Gazpacho, the Pear Salad, and the Lamp Chops.
The wine list focuses on local wines, and the prices are reasonable.
I highly recommend this restaurant. If you have only one dinner in Walla Walla, this is the place to go.
There's a nice sidewalk eating area at the sandwich shop and deli. I really liked my Reuben sandwich; the pastrami in it was the leanest, and most succulent I've ever had. Home made chips were pretty good, but the warm potato salad is probably a better option. The burger was just okay. I you don't want rare be sure to specify, as it is so thick it's hard to get the center cooked.
The whiskey list–a somewhat unexpected element–is extensive and very interesting. I really enjoyed the Port Barrel aged Chattanooga whiskey.
