#2530 - Chief's Bar and Grill, Odessa, WA - 5/24/2014

Chief's Bar and Grill, Odessa, WA
"Odessa's only full service restaurant & lounge. Serves breakfast, lunch, & dinner. We serve steak, shrimp, burgers, pizza, sandwiches and more."

In the late 19th century the Odessa area was settled primarily by Germans who had lived along the Black Sea and Volga River, a heritage now celebrated in the Odessa Deutschesfest each third week of September. The town was incorporated in 1902, quickly grew to around 1,000 people, and has hoved closed to that number ever since.

I don't know how long Chief's Bar & Grill has been in Odessa -- It doesn't appear in directories from a few decades ago, but it's pleasantly worn and broken wooden sign indicates that it's been here at least a few years. In the front is a classic, small-town, family diner, and in back a brightly lit lounge that remains open on certain days until 10 or 11pm.

Odessa note: For many years, from at least the 50s until 2007, Odessa was one of the at least 60 Washington state cities and towns with a bar named the "Pastime." In 2007 this was renamed the Rolling Thunder Saloon, which operated until 2012. It was replaced by an art gallery that eventually started to also sell pizzas, and appears to have a sign from the old Pastime inside.
