Serve was great, but had to send my steak back. They did so with courtesy, though. The fresh bread and wonderful salad and baked potato were yummy

Don't let the outside fool you. The food and staff are great. We had been traveling all day on our way to Portland. A great stop for the weary traveler.

Went last night for my Birthday Dinner and had the Blackened Halibut. The food was excellent and because of my BD, we got the Ice cream Potato. Service was great, this place is a place you need to visit, you wouldn't think by the exterior but it is.

I would give it a higher rating but we had a some mishap with our order. We were there for a drink and ordered stuffed mushrooms that got dropped on the floor so they had to make another order which was fine but it took like 40 minutes....Way too long but they were delish...

I have eaten here many times and always had a great meal. It seems to me like an old roadhouse diner. They have a bar and a separate dining area. I have a prime rib dinner which was excellence my wife did as well. It came with soup or salad. Dinner rolls I had a baked potato. Good place to... More

Driving up, you see a drab green box building. It had been recommended as a place to get a good steak, so we were expecting a typical western style bar. Instead, we found a quiet (albeit too dim) salon-style place that played quiet lounge music and served incredible beef. I had the prime rib, which I cut with my fork,... More

Took three tries to find the correct door. Service and meals were above average and was convienant to the Celilo Inn

We were in the mood for a steak dinner, and the options in The Dalles were mighty limited...so we took a chance on this "throw back" roadside restaurant, which features both steak and seafood. Glad we did! Yes, the exterior says, "Keep looking". And, yes, the interior says, "Not sure what look I'm trying for". Dark red overstuffed chair look... More

Vintage 70's or retro modern? Hard to tell. Feeels like stepping back in time to the old supper club houses of the past. Good cocktails and featured local wines. Good food, wide menu, not very creative/exotic but done well and tasty.
