The Plan
This single level restaurant features a general dining area and a private dining room for special parties.
Both have views out over the valley toward the Yaquina River.
The central area has high vaulted ceilings and is dedicated to the buffet serving area.
A small lounge is located off the entry waiting area.
Service areas include the Kitchen, Refrigeration and Food Storage, an Office, restrooms and a loading dock.

The high vaulted ceiling of the buffet serving area becomes evident as framing progresses.
