Disappointing experience

We chose Simon's for our Valentine's dinner this year. Most of the staff was very warm and helpful. Our waitress, however, was distracted and never really connected. The location is beautiful, but not so much so after dark. I ordered shrimp which were okay, but the potato and vegetables that... read more

We had a great fixed price lunch. Decent value, a ton of food. All delicious! Lovely views of the Columbia River Gorge while dining.

My mom and I were having a mother-daughter weekend and ate here for dinner. Although some would say the decor is "dated", for us it had character and charm that's hard to find in the exposed beams of modern dining. We were greeted by our host as soon as we entered, and due to Jon our waiter/server had a great... More

This is a classic place to eat and was on our "must do" list. We were here for breakfast, and the food was fabulous (french toast, potatoes, fruit). No so great was the place itself - yes, I know it's old and classic, but you could fix the burned out light bulbs and dust occasionally (really dirty by the windows... More

While some hotel restaurants leave a lot to be desired, our dinner at Simon's was refreshing and scrumptious. The scallops were firm and nicely seasoned and sweet. The cedar planked steelhead was a treat to be enjoyed again. While the restaurant is located on the cliff overlooking the river which alone would attract guests the food is equally attractive and...

Our party went here for lunch. The hotel is impressive, with lovely 20's period wood work, paned windows, and an unbeatable view of the stunning Columbia River Gorge. We all had sandwiches, including a Reuben, Big Wind Burger, and a Monte Cristo. All were nicely prepared, not too large, and included really delicious sweet potato or garlic fries. As we... More

We were traveling down the road at lunch time and just got off the road and stumbled on this restaurant. The view from the dining room was lovely. We ordered a Phillie cheese steak sandwich to share and a glass of wine. The sandwich although good was not the traditional Phillie cheese steak if you have been to Philadelphia and... More

At first glance the menu has promise. My husband order ed a steak that was ok but accompanied with dry mashed potatoes the major disappointment was the Napoleon stack with quinoa. After my second bite I asked for some sauce of some sort. After my husband finished his meal I told the waiter to forget it. He said oh no... More

Nothing can top the classic hotel or Columbia Gorge view at this establishment. We had lunch there and really enjoyed the view, the service and the food. Fortunately Columbia River Steelhead Salmon was on the menu. It makes great sandwiches for lunch !! The hotel, its staff and the restaurant staff were very friendly and inviting. The server even introduced... More

Just happened to see roadside sign for a historic hotel, decided to try restaurant - glad we did. Restaurant setting was very quaint, interesting, lots of historic value. Had a list of famous folks that have visited. Ask for a window view overlooking the Gorge. The view is spectacular. Be sure to walk outside and see the river, waterfall. Ask... More
