Extremely high quality for Centralia standards. The prices are worth what you get. The "Carnitas" are the best tacos I've ever had. Love the aesthetic of the place. Same friendly and helpful owner as the Shire Bar & Bistro in Chehalis!

Here is our Friday night take out from the Branch. The food was great. We did the burger, chicken Poboy and a growler of beer. Everyone, please support our wonderful restaurants.

I had the seared ahi via take-out, and it was amazing! Even as take-out, super food. This was my first meal from The Branch, but I'll be coming back for more. If it was this good from a carton, I'm excited to enjoy it at a sit down dinner in their cozy little dining room.

Cozy setting (only 30ish seats) with fantastic food and service. Best Creme Brule in Thurston or Lewis County!

Love the Branch, we go here on special occasions and sometimes just because. The Chicken Gumbo is my go to, and I've never had grits I liked until trying them here. It may be small, but the atmosphere is great. Servers are friendly and accommodating. Chef knows what he is doing and clearly knows how to make a well-presented, delicious meal. Prices aren't high for the consistently high quality food.

My fiancé and I stopped here not knowing what we were walking into... We picked this restaurant off of Yelp with minimal investigation to stop for dinner during our road trip. We almost didn't go in when we pulled up because of how nice it looked, since we were dressed down for our road trip, sweat pants and all. I can't say how glad I am we did. We were met kindly despite our attire, and were gradually more impressed as the meal went on. From our wine (thy Syrah) to our starting salads (the Branch and the Shire), we were blown away from the start. We ordered the shrimp and grits and the salmon entrees, and we're still raving about our food; they were some of the best meals we've had in recent memory and we're both big "foodies," constantly trying new restaurants. We finished with the creme brulee, and talked about our entire experience for the rest of our trip! I can't recommend this place enough. We're already talking about making this a regular stop for future trips (but maybe dressing a little more appropriately for the atmosphere next time).
