Nice evening

Next door to our lodge, we found this treasure, a tiny eatery/winery, which,the night we were there, had live music! Leslie, Steve, and Kerry were greatly enjoyed,even by my 83 year young mother. (She also really liked the blackberry cider!)

Thank you for your kind review. I'm so glad your Mum enjoyed her cider and yes, Steve, Leslie and group rocked the house. We are very fortunate to have wonderful musicians in our area! Thank you for stopping at the White Buffalo. More

This restaurant is an refurbished old gas station. It is beside the interstate as you come into Hood River from the west. We had the pasta special and it was quite good. They have a good selection of wines and you can have a tasting or if you know what you want, just order by the glass. The waitresses very... More

What a gem in the middle of no where jumped on trip advisor on the way to Spokane and out popped the white buffalo. We paid a 10 dollar corkage fee for our own wine, but they have interesting selections. Good was local and very creative and good!

I LOVE this place! We stay at the Vagabond Inn since the White Buffalo is in front of it. Food is so yummy, service excellent and a wine tasting when you pick up food to go...or if you eat there?? And live music?? Sigh. All the gals that work there are so sweet and catered to making food for the... More

Decided to have dinner at this restaurant. Walked into one open room with several tables and a bar. Menu is very limited. Service was good, but guess we just aren't the biggest fans of bison burgers (wife had that). Opens at 3 p.m. and they were already down to one cup of tomato soup, but did offer some mushroom soup.... More

This little restaurant was just beside my hotel and I decided to give it a try. I love wine and they had a great selection by the bottle and some by the glass. The two servers were great, I was traveling solo and they made me feel welcome. I had a cheese platter with some wine that was AMAZING! specially... More

One reviewer said they took one look at the exterior and thought it was a dive and left. What a shame. They probably also judge books by their covers. What a shame.

Simple food menu with a variety of salads and other entrees that pair well with the fairly extensive wine offering. In restaurant wine store allows diners to pay a reasonable corkage fee for wine bought there.
