Buy one get one free burgers! You cannot go wrong, especially when they taste so good. We also got one of their specialty milkshakes which did not disappoint. Cozy restaurant, certainly nothing fancy... but it was a nice change for us. Service was great.

Prime Rib was ok, green beans great, cozy place where we enjoyed time w/each other. The one Waitress was overwhelmed and could hardly spend any time answering any menu questions we had. Decent amount of food served for the price.

Looking for a nosh after a hike up in the hills and wandered onto this shack. I'll admit we were attracted to the nondescript exterior of this sprawling, old-school building -mostly cause it looked like it had character. Our hunch was right. The vibe up...More

An authentic log cabin rich in history and legends, The Barlow Trail Roadhouse dates back to 1926 and is loved by everyone who visits. Locals, travelers and tourists alike have made this restaurant one of their favorite gathering places.
The Barlow Trail Inn was built by the legendary William “Bill” Lenz, and named after the famous toll road constructed by Sam Barlow. The building originally served as a general store, and nine months later became The Barlow Trail Inn. The local inn had the reputation of having the “Best Food on the Loop to Timberline” downstairs and “Best Girls” upstairs. Hence, it was a popular stop for miners coming across the Cascades, construction workers building Timberline Lodge, and the local loggers.
In 2001 the restaurant was renamed “The Territory” which did not sit well with several folks. By popular demand, the building has been renamed to include the historic Barlow Trail name.
