Any restaurants worth the money in Olympia?

Is the dining in Olympia really as bad as it seems or am I just missing something? I'm new to the Pacific Northwest, we just moved here. I had heard so much about the food in this area of the country, the freshness, the quality, the local produce, the farmers markets, and so far I haven't eaten at one place in Olympia I'd go back to. Most local places just look unappealing, but I have given some a try anyway, only to find the food about as good as the condition of the building - this includes the somewhat saggy California Taco Van. I had a burrito with fajita veggies that poured grease onto the table when I opened it and was soggy and off. I am from southeast Minnesota, not known for it's amazing food, but I am suffering here in Olympia. On nights when I'm out of groceries or run out of time to cook, I am opting for boxes of Annie's mac and cheese and canned soup rather than buy food from restaurants here. Can you help with any recommendations? I'll take anything from kid-friendly fast food and take out to fine dining. Please help!
