I love the Sunday chicken dinner. I am a sucker for chicken and mashed potatoes! Too bad it's only available on Sundays! My husband and I recently ate there again. This time it was pot roast for me. Okay, I love comfort food! We've been to this restaurant many times and will continue to do so in the future.

We always visit this restaurant when we come into town. It's one of those "go to" places. The food is good and the atmosphere, although it's not real old, it has that old feel.

Service was so-so. food was also so-so. This would not be a first choice for a place to eat. The bar area has better service. could be termed a sports bar with the large screen TV.

Whenever we are in Gresham we always make it a point to eat at least one breakfast at Francis Xavier's. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I will add one tip: try and make it to the restaurant during Oktoberfest. The chef does an excellent job with dishes that compliment the season.

This restaurant was next to our hotel and it offers a good variety of food at a reasonable price. I had some fish and chips. The server was ver nice and helpful. I think it is a really good choice if you are in this area by the airport

I had breakfast here one morning because I was staying at the hotel to which it is attached. Like most restaurant breakfast menus, this one provided a choice of a ton of sugar or a ton of cholesterol. You could, of course, combine these. I eyed the fruit selection for a moment, but I knew if I just wanted fresh... More

I was hoping for Crab Benedict but tried their Salmon Benedict 1/2 order. It was delicious. Best Salmon eggs Benedict that have had. I've actually had it twice here and it doesn't disappoint. The first time we sat in the restaurant but we chose the bar the 2nd time and it was very comfortable and service was great both times.... More

Wonderful dinner tonight. All three of us had prime rib which had been recommended to us by the hostess. Truly tender and flavorful. I also had the cobbler which was good.
