We ate at both Celilo Restaurant & Bar and Nora's Table, and Brian's Pourhouse pipped both of them for the service and the quality of the food. Pan fried trout was perfectly cooked and the local cherry pie exceptional. Service was attentive. Happy to recommend it highly

We arrived in Hood River late with very little hope of finding a good place to eat. We were surprised when we walked into Brian's Pourhouse and they were able to seat us. It was wonderful! We never saw a staff so service oriented. Food was great. Menu was varied. It was definitely a place where people came to enjoy... More

I am visiting the Hood River area for a 6 week work placement and have visited Brian's 3 times. The restaurant is in a good location within the town and the food is and service excellent. Their spaghetti and meatballs is the best I have experienced, and their apple pie dessert is exceptional. Colleagues have had the calamari and seafood... More

Every time I am in Hood River I at least have a drink at Brian's so I can have the brussel sprouts. They are delicious, I just wish the serving size was bigger! This time we also split fish tacos which were good, and a salmon sushi roll that was delicious. They have great outdoor seating and sometimes live music.... More

We've been here twice now, so I can say that the food and service is consistently excellent. It has a casual atmosphere by big-city standards, but upscale for Hood River. I have leaned toward the pasta dishes, which are fresh and imaginative, with a decent wine list to complement them. The seating can be a bit cozy and it gets... More

Love that old house has been converted into restaurant, had fantastic view across river. Service was friendly & efficient. If review was solely based on food then 3.5 stars. Two of us ordered the steak, it was extremely though. The accompanying fries were excellent, as was the garlic butter. My other friend ordered the veggie lasagna and really liked it.... More

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
