After a strenuous day of hiking, we were really hungry. We stumbled across Solstice while checking out the kite boarders across the street. It took a long time for the sever to take our order. Then it seemed that she kept forgetting what she was doing. Once the food arrived, it was delicious. We had margarita pizza and wood fire... More

I chose Solstice based off of internet reviews and I am sad to say it didn't live up to its hype. We had a group of 6 and expected a wait because it was 8 pm on a Saturday in July. When we went to the host/hostess they looked like I had just asked them to perform brain surgery. It... More

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.
