In Camp Sherman?????

Camp Sherman, last stop on a vacation. I have no idea of how some people rate a restaurant, but this is NOT a typical "resort" restaurant. This is 5 star in my humble opinion. Great staff, outside seating for our fur kids, somewhat limited menu (for a reason) and great offerings from the mixoligest... read more

Wish I could say something good about the food at Kokanee Cafe in Camp Sherman OR, but cannot. Our waitress was very nice and did a lovely job serving us and making sure everything was punctual in her service. Have not visited Kokanee Cafe for a couple years and my partner and I were really looking forward to going to... More

Amazingly, despite it's remote location, the Kokanee remains one of the five best restaurants in Oregon. My wife and I enjoyed our dinner there on a packed Friday night. Despite the swamped accommodations,\our service was top notch. The seared scallop appetizer was perfect, lovely crisp fennel crust to perfectly cooked sweet scallops. We each enjoyed our salads, mine the Kokanee... More

There aren't any other choices in Camp Sherman, and the Kokanee has been up and down over the years in food quality. We've had wonderful meals there, and some like this time that weren't quite up to par, on balance, but not bad. I had mussels that were a day too old, and sent them back. This is not a... More

Been here many times and it is consistently excellent. The trout and steelhead are especially good. The chicken pot pie is different, but good. The setting is a delight, as is the staff. Best restaurant in Central Oregon.

The Kokanee Cafe is one of those magical places hidden in the forest of Camp Sherman. It is charming, gorgeous, welcoming, then there's the food! Absolutely delicious and lovingly, creatively and gorgeously prepared and served. We had the beet salad which was so tasty and a feast for the eyes! The steelhead was the most delicious I've had. My husband... More

The Metolious River rises right out of the ground, amazing. Camp Sherman is a historical resort/Summer home/cabin/campground area there. Neat General Store. But you wouldn't expect a fancy restaurant there. Only serves dinner but quite a dinner it is, not cheap but good. We made reservations and had an early seating on a Sunday evening, not many folks but that... More

It was surprising to find this nice restaurant out in the middle of nowhere, and it was far nicer than most of its surroundings! The food and service were excellent with very friendly and helpful waitstaff. It is also a beautiful drive, about 45 minutes from Redmond, so the distance traveled is pleasant.

Last night, my wife and I decided to go out for dinner to a restaurant about which we had heard positive reviews: Kokanee Cafe. A slight hurdle is that there is a thirty mile drive to Camp Sherman from Bend,however we were eager to try it, and we are so glad that we did. Every aspect of the meal met... More

We always loved the Kokanee Cafe. This time not so much. You can't beat the location-- gorgeous Camp Sherman nestled along the beautiful Metolius River-- but to us the food quality has gone down and the prices way up. We started with their house salad. It was decent but I've had better. Neither one of us liked the bacon in... More
