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.

This was more than a steak house. The steak was huge so believe the weight on the menu is after cooking because they were huge! Super eclectic menu everything from Chicken to seafood. The shrimp cocktail was incredible one of the ever had great serving size the prawns were huge. The chicken schnitzel was also great and a pleasant surprise.... More

My wife had a very good, fresh salmon dinner with a salad and steamed vegetables. I had the sirloin and 5 large grilled prawns. The steak was exactly how I ordered it. Get there early or you will have to wait. They open at 4:30. The staff was helpful and very friendly. Average wine list but they have a full... More

My wife and I are on vacation in Hood River, OR and asked a local where we could get a good steak dinner; she directed us to The Mesquitery and said we would not be disappointed. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! Right from the moment we walked in the door we were treated as well as the regular locals that were... More

Clean, friendly, and off the tourist path. My porterhouse was a good choice. Steamed veggies were unseasoned. Mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy were great. Friendly accommodating staff. Looks much nicer when you get inside. Chicken Caesar was ok. We did not stay for dessert.

The Mesquitery is one of our go-to restaurants in the Columbia Gorge. Friendly staff, comfortable casual atmosphere, consistently good food, and a luscious barbecue aroma that hits you the instant you walk through the door. Anything from the mesquite indoor grill is excellent, but I've never been disappointed in anything I've ordered there. Much of the food is a slight... More

We were staying in Hood River and asked various locals and we were directed to The Mesquitery. We always like to try local restaurants so we found the place and tried and we were not disappointed! The service and food was great. We had prime rib which is a 14 ounce cut and it was cooked to perfection. We started... More
