Hood River has some great food options and ultimately I am not sure this one will measure up over time. The site on the river front is nice and it can be a great place to hang out. But the pizza was pretty average. The place is fairly new and the location attracts a strong crowd. But they just seemed... More

A beautiful Sunday night, seated right away as it seemed to be winding down. Was not greeted for over 5 min. Could of been longer, had great company and we had lots to talk about. A heavily tattooed server finally shows up to take our drink order, then disappears for awhile. We ordered the large crimini pizza, took forever to... More

Pizza was good, but eight of us spent half an hour trying to sort out our receipt, as our waitress said she'd divide the check after our meal rather than writing up separate checks. What a mess! Had us all write our names beside what we ordered on this tiny little ticket. Totally unnecessary and one party got charged twice... More

This restaurant had been recommended by a couple of the locals and due to our schedule we did not actually manage to get to the restaurant. However, we stumbled upon the local farmers' market where Solstice had a portable pizza oven where they were cooking up and selling pizza by the slice faster than they could make it. And, no... More

All kinds of interesting and unexpected pizza ingredients. They used to be across the river but now are in full view of the many wind surfers on the Columbia River. Check our their menu for a great meal.

This is a great place run by locals and really a good family friendly atmosphere. The food is always great and we love the access to the children's park right across the street.

My wife had a wonderful gluten-free pizza and I enjoyed a great Hot Mama pizza. Our daughter ended up playing in the kid play area which was nicely tucked away in the back corner of the restaurant. Service was great and the food was even better.

When a local recommends a place you have to try it out. Definitely worth it. We got the cow girl pizza to go as we just wanted a late evening snack. While we waited we had a drink at the bar. I learned a new drink recipe! Lemonthyme and gin! It was really good. The builing is new, modern and... More

We are always blown away by the quality of food that Solstice produces. We have visited Solstice a lot over the last 6 years and have always been delighted to return and support the great restaurant. We spent a lot of evenings after our rafting trips on the White Salmon River at Solstice when they were located in Bingen, WA... More
