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

We had both dinner and breakfast at this lovely restaurant. Reserve a table on the window side overlooking the Gorge. The view is spectacular. We were quickly seated and service was brisk. The menu is extensive and the wine list features Northwest wines, including some truly outstanding labels. Cocktails were well prepared and a very generous size. The selection of... More

This is such a beautiful settings that the food and service almost don't matter but as a real bonus they are both very good. The small outdoor terrace seating is the place to be for a relaxed meal with a great view high above the Columbia river. We have been here a number of times, sometimes for just an afternoon... More

I was at the restaurant with a group of twelve. Talk about special treatment -- we had a menu designed just for us. When was the last time that you went to a restsurant and receive such special treatment? The dining room was also reserved just for us. The help went out of their way to see that we were... More

We had Sunday brunch at Simon's. The food was good, but nothing compared to the views! It was definitely a great place to spend time with family and have a good meal.

We were exploring the gorge and on a friend's recommendation we stopped for a late lunch. The grilled Salmon sandwich and Monte' Cristo sandwich were very good while overlooking the gorge and all of the kite surfers. Walking the grounds and discovering the beautiful waterfall right next to the building was even better. "They" say Rudolph Valentino stayed there and... More

We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners there. We were staying at the Vagabond Lodge next door and they said the Columbia Gorge had good food and they did. Breakfasts were the usual and I had the buckwheat pancakes with sausage and he had the farmers breakfast. Service was very good and it wasn't that bad on the pocket book... More
