Beautiful restaurant right on the Columbia. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. Typical barely mediocre chain food Mexican. Next time we'll take a picnic and just sit on the river bank!!

We called ahead to be put on the priority seating so there was no wait for a table and no line at 7:15 pm on a Friday night. I had a grande margarita on the rocks and my husband had a beer. My margarita was not that strong. I ordered the shrimp enchiladas and they were okay. The sauce is... More

I took some associates from work there for a lunch meeting and was pleasantly surprised. They offered a lunch buffet which some of us enjoyed immensely. I ordered the Mexican Ceasar salad with chicken. The salad could use a bit more dressing, but the chicken was plentiful and delicious. However, after seeing the buffet, I believe I will give that...

We used to go here frequently mostly for the lunch buffet and sometimes to order fajitas off the menu. My reviews of Who-Song & Larry's were very good in the past, but I just needed to do this update. On our second to the last visit there were issues with the dishes, bowls and silverware still having food on them.... More

It wasn't great. I haven't been back. We were right behind a door that opened right into our table. We had a hard time being seen by wait staff. We waited 25 minutes to order drinks and get chips. I ended up going inside to order drinks and ask for chips. It took another 15 minutes before the chips &... More

We went there for a paint night and decided to have dinner first. We were greeted pretty shortly after entering the restaurant and was told to seat ourselves and a waiter would be with us shortly. We had a little bit of a wait but it was OK as we seated ourselves out on the patio and it was a... More

They have outdoor seating on the Columbia river, and for Mexican fare, the food is better than average.

Fairly good Mexican food. The taco bar is great, and I really like the cornbread. A little overpriced but the atmosphere is nice. Wheelchair friendly and good staff.

Found a good place for cheap eats and happy hour drinks. They offer various all you can eat specials each day of the week. The food quality is pretty good but the service is spotty and it was not even busy. The view is something as you are right on the water.

Stopped by on our way to Seattle for lunch, right at the end of the buffet, staff was friendly and even asked us to prepare food 30 min after closing of the buffet, food delicious
