Third time was not a charm – The past three visits to Geraldine's have been very disappointing. The service was horrible and the food was ok. We keep on giving Geraldine's more chances, but keep on being let down. It's ok for take out, but even midweek it takes forever to place an order for a beverage or a meal. Every time we have been there we see people leave after waiting for several minutes to be seated.
Kid-friendly Columbia City diner offers home-style comfort food all day and a comfortable, retro environment. – In Short
The bright, sunny dining room has a row of windows looking out onto Rainier Avenue, a checked tile floor and cheerful walls. Families from Mount Baker and beyond sit at retro diner tables simply adorned with daisies or share booths; singles prefer the long lunch counter. The menu offers updated comfort food, with dependable standards like burgers (accompanied by sweet potato fries), BLTs and breakfast items.
no value, lots of attitude – The experience I had at Geraldines was less than average at best. Our server had an attitude and apparently did not know how to smile or conversate with their guests. When our food finally came, it was ok. Nothing to write home about. The portions were small. For the prices, I would expect better quality and a bigger portion. With so many places to choose from, I will not be back....
You will want to eat there everyday! – Geraldines Counter is an absolute must! Whether it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner you will be so pleased. The staff has always been friendly and full of personality! A relaxed atmosphere with comfort food!! Just the right touches...they know what they are doing here! Sit at the counter or bring a friend (s) and dine at a table. You can see the efforts of the excellent kitchen staff and the owner is present and simply a delight!
Slow, so take it to go – Food is pretty good, but service is bad. Slow and not very attentive. Menu is very limited, but tasty. Wait for food can be long, so order ahead and take it to go.
down home best – a great addition to the columbia city area. tasty down home food with a spark. love their breakfasts!
