If you want to travel back to the Roosevelt era, that's Teddy not Franklin then this is your spot, cobwebs and all. I can't say ANYTHING nice about Simon's so it surfice's to say, use caution!

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 dinner; the food was great and so was the service and the view. I would definitely eat here again.

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

We stayed in the Villas next door-- so this restaurant was a convenient, easy choice. Food was good. Service was very slow.

We enjoyed very good meals at Simon's. The meats were beautifully, cooked with a nice presentation. The menu was not an ordinary menu. We enjoyed duck and lamb dishes. The Sunday Mother's Day Brunch was exceptional in quality, variety, presentation and price. They had a price for seniors which was a welcome surprise.
