We always eat here when we come to HR. The fish tacos are great and the wine list is extensive. We happened to be here when there was a big blazers game and had a great time with the locals at the bar.

Spent Valentines in Hood River and had dinner at Brian's Pourhouse. It was wonderful. Cozy, candle light, great service and great food. Really a fun evening. Perfect place to take that special person in your life. Start with one of their excellent cocktails and finish with one of their amazing deserts. You won't be sorry.

The first couple of times we ate at Brian's Pourhouse, the food was great and the service (although slow and inattentive) made for an enjoyable experience. The third time we ate there, I had to send back both our dinners. They looked good on the menu but were not very appealing when they arrived. The calamari was thick with breading... More

We have eaten here many times over the years, and I am always surprised by what I find on the menu. The menu is generally short, but varied across an American / Pan Asian / Fusion thing…and always done to perfection. For lunch we had two of their regular classics, Calamari appetizer and Fish taco’s. They have a wonderful cornmeal... More

I recently joined two pals for dinner at Brian's, an well established restaurant in Hood River. Historically, many of the restaurants have a tough time attracting good staff - many are very young, transient to take advantage of the windsurfing and skiing so customer service is not always a priority. Not so at Brian's! Not only was the food fantastic... More

My wife and I ate here a while back. I felt the whole time that we did not belong in there...lots of sporty athletic people in there which I am not and was made to feel like we were inferior customers. Maybe they should put a sign out front that only pretty people are excepted. I put average instead of... More

We had never been to Brian's before and just dropped in on a whim. The atmosphere in the back is semi-intimate with nice views. They have a very good wine list. Like many Hood River restaurants they offer a variety of small plates. You can easily make a decent meal for two of you by choosing the appropriate small plates... More

Apparently a favorite place for the locals. The hostess greeted many guests by name. The food was very good. My burger was excellent.

Dear TreadLightAdventurer, I'm glad you loved the burger! Chef John wanted to do a classic American burger and he definitely succeeded! We are considered the "Cheers" of Hood River, a local hang out for sure. That's why you noticed the hostess greet many people by name. Thank you for your nice review! More

We walked from the historic Hood River Hotel despite the very cold, snowy weather. Cozy, warm environs and staff with too many terrific menu choices. Luckily, we were there on a Thursday eve which is their wine by the bottle discounted night. Wow, finished off a wonderful Barbera and then ordered another to go, also discounted. Will return and attempt... More
