We had dinner here twice and the food and service was excellent.Our favorite was the grilled scallops on polenta. However the Trout was also very good and the salads were good also. They have a very good wine selection of local wines

Columbia Gorge Hotel restaurant We had dinner and breakfast at this aging hotel. The dining room overlooked the Columbia River. The breakfast was delicious; a heaping stack of pancakes. Dinner was ok, not great. The wait staff were enthusiastic and friendly.

We ate 2 breakfasts at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. Both were delicious. They offer fresh fruit with their egg dishes (instead of potatoes) which is a nice change. Good value, nice setting, great coffee and tea.

The food and wine were excellent. The server was well informed and attentive. The view was lovely and after dinner music and wine on the porch was very relaxing.

We popped into this hotel as we heard the food was good but were put off by the smell of old carpet/dust etc that was evident immediately you entered the building. Sadly cannot comment on the restaurant as a result. We appreciate the hotel is maintaining the style and ambience of a bygone era but.........

Originally built in 1907 the hotel stands proudly atop a bluff overlooking the mighty Columbia River The restaurant has a great sun room section with about 15 tables that look out over the river. The decor is as it was in the early 1900's. On this visit our waitress was very good and the food came in a satisfactory amount... More
