I will usually look through a selection of reviews to see if I am being too picky, not picky enough etc., etc. In reviewing the reviews, I am a bit dumbfounded at the rave reviews! I did find the food certainly okay and better but nothing to rave about. The portions were fairly small for the price and the prices... More

I was told this place was expensive but I didn't find that to be true! I found the price was average for a good place to eat. I found the food to be excellent and very tasty! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable!!! I loved seeing the steaks cooking on the grill! I will be going back!!!

Locally owned. Awesome service. Been there several times, never had an item off the menu I didn't like. Steak is cooked to perfection, sizes for all appetites. European beers to choose from are also worth mentioning. Never been unhappy about choosing this place.

Smells good from the moment you walk in. Up to 14-oz steaks cooked how you like them (and they do what you ask). Usually busy. Can share a meal

Eight of us, with eight different appetites totally had a fantastic evening of great food and great service!!!! This place is the top of our list when we want great food or when company comes to town. Tonight's favorites were the porterhouse, prime rib, halibut, and the pastas!!! Everyone was thrilled with what they got!!!

We stopped here based on hotel staff recommendation. The place doesn't look like much from the outside and parking was challenging but the food was very good just not much of it. We ordered chicken, which came with salad and it was very tasty but that was it. All potatoes and other sides were extra which we thought was strange.... More

Went with my folks & all had wonderful steaks & seafood. Watching them cook on the fire & seeing the wonderful meat was a plus. Will definitely come again. Service was great!

We were very pleasantly surprised as this place didn't look like much from the outside. However the attentive service and great selection of mesquite grilled entrees made it our favorite place to eat in Hood River. We wondered if this was a dive because we had checked out the menu prices online, but they had numerous selections and everyone there... More

The food was delicious and the service was friendly and good. We had intended to only eat there one night, but liked it so much that we ended up there the very next night. The Yaka Sobo noodles were fantastic. The grilled cheese with ham was extremely good, too. Also, the salmon platter and the grouper sandwich were excellent. Service... More

Whether you want great food or great AND fancy with a super view of the Columbia River, check out this place. Waitstaff very friendly and knowledgeable. The chef is an artist and the meal was prepared to perfection. Would definitely go there again.
