While staying at the Best Western Hood River Inn we chose to dine in their restaurant. We ate on the patio overlooking the Columbia river. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, the wait staff pleasant, informative but not in your face. My husband had the fresh fish of the day which was Columbia River salmon. It was off...

Chef is purported to be from the now closed Abruzzo Italian. We ate there in the past and found it to be outstanding so we were excited to book a reservation at the Riverside. The cooking doesn't seem to carry over to Riverside as far as the Italian goes. The special of the night was salmon and I wish I... More

As our nest has emptied, there have been lonely holidays without the kids. It cheers us to go to Riverside to enjoy their wonderful holiday buffets, and fine dining experience. Reservations are a MUST! The service is attentive, table settings are lovely, the staff works hard to give customers a good experience. The buffets are amazing -- so many choices,... More

First off, we have been driving from the Tri-Cities, Washington area to Vancouver Washington area for the past 15 years to visit our daughter in her family in Vancouver. We have almost always stopped at the Riverside because of the outstanding lunches they offer and the generally good service. We have found that the restaurant is slower than most and... More

I've lived in Hood River for over 10 years. We love taking my elderly parents to Riverside Grill because of menu variety. Beautiful view of Columbia River and you can have a conversation and be heard! There is a kids menu and even my picky eater was happy. Our waiter, Kent, got the chef to make her chicken strips (not... More

Entrees $20 and up per person. Didn't see any provision for cheaper kids prices, so wouldn't suggest it for families. But as an anniversary dinner out, great! Wonderful food, substantial portions, excellent service. I had the shrimp pasta - usually with shrimp you worry about getting enough to be full, but no worries here, My wife got the salad with...

We got a seat outside next to the river. Our service was great, drinks came fast and so did our food. The food was really good. The clam chowder had plenty of clams.

The menu here is very good. They do have gluten free options and most of the ingredients are organic. They had a wonderful wine list. Wasn't expecting that. If you stay at the hotel you get a free cooked to order breakfast and the options for this are really very good. If you want juice with your breakfast you'll have... More

We enjoyed our complimentary breakfast at the Riverside as part of our two-nite stay at the Best Western. We sat outside both days. While it was a bit bright, we really enjoyed our meal overlooking the river. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Highly recommended.
