House of Shoes continues to be the one place in Klamath where you can find quality shoes from name brand manufactures. They are a little expensive, but those shoes would cost that anywhere. They carry Birks, too. It's nice that this is a place you can get hard to find sizes and they will special order for you. The employees have been there a long time and they know how to help you find what you're looking for.
Basin Boot Barn is a great place to take any kind of leather work that needs repaired. They work on resoleing boots, shoes, fixing leather purses, and even tooling some saddles. They have a large selection of work and western boots to buy new at a decent price. The smell of leather is wonderful. Nice, home-town folks in there.
Looking for western style boots and clothes in Klamath Falls? You can get them at the farm stores, but Drews has the best styles and personal salespeople. The service is special and you can tell they truly want to make you a returning, happy customer. The prices are a little high but oh! when they have a sale - go for it!
Your other choices are: Fred Meyer, Wallmart and Ross. So it's the best place in town by default. The fashions are a little older, so the younger ladies who are in need of plus sizes are limited. But for the basics, the selection is fine. Of course it's higher priced than other places, but that's because they aren't buying bulk of cheap stuff. The clothes are quality.
For local ownership, Bogatay's has been very good for keeping the styles current while still keeping classics in stock. It's the place for a nice business wear, or an outfit for the weekend. The prices are a little steep compared to the limited other choices around, but the name brands demand that.
How long has it been since you've been able to order a foot-long hot dog? Or a double cheeseburger with the works? This is the best little burger shop around. It seats about 10 people, makes home made milk shakes and great french fries. In the parking long of the Ranch Wholesale (Big R) store, you'll find the farmers gathering around for a burger. If people who raise beef will eat there - that's a pretty good referral!
Stopped at Mollies on the way out of town, for breakfast. It put us an hour behind on our trip. It was so slow. The breakfast wasn't worth the cost, so many items were forgotten or the order was screwed up. Kids running around everywhere and the smell of smoke was horrid. Must have been leftover smell from the bar. It's a truck stop cafe, without the truck stop charm.
Sam's place has a great dinner - the old fashioned kind. It's great for chicken fried steak, or liver and onions. They do pretty good with a prime rib. The old meat and potatoe dishes are really good here, but leave the fancier dishes to the nicer places. Sam's is a little run-down, and the wait-staff is a little rusty. The food is really good and the price is right. It's a popular spot. The bar is a little dark, but it's a good alternative to the booths in the restaurant for some elbow room.
This is my favorite spot in the whole world. The view of the lake, the tall pines and the big, stone fireplace... cannot be a better setting. The burgers are great for lunch but wait awhile and come up to the lake for dinner. The specials are wonderful at a good price - try the prime rib. The big pine-log chairs and tables add that lodge atmosphere. They scrimp a little on the wait-staff, but who can blame them? It's a hard call if they'll have 2 or 30 on any given night.
Starvin' Marvin's has evolved into a regular landmark in Klamath! Their service tends to be a little slow, but the wait for a great big breakfast is worth it! Their new location is so clean and new, it makes the experience that much nicer. I would reccomend eating there at any time, for any meal!
