This restaurant is the best place to eat for miles around. There are a couple other places in Halfway but they don't even compare. I had the best smoked brisket one night and excellent pork chops the next night. The sides were great too. The chef really knows how to cook, not just throw some frozen stuff in the fryer.... More

12 members of our car club stopped for lunch on a drive through Hell's Canyon. Due to the time change between MST and PST, we got there half an hour before they opened on Sunday. They let us in early and got us rehydrated. Our orders were quickly taken and the food came right out. I had the mushroom/Swiss burger... More

Great personal restaurant! Excellent service and an outstanding setting! Mexican Specials on Thursdays, and smoked prime rib on prior request!

Love their food! Prime Rib excellent - always! My all time favorite is Andy's homemade raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing! He even whipped up some special one night for me when they were out of it! So awesome! Atmosphere is always so relaxing and it's just fun to go, eat the best food, have some drinks, and hang out with friends!

This is my favorite place to eat of all time! The food is so good. Everyone there puts there heart and soul into that place and it truly shows. Keep up the good work!

This is virtually the only place to eat once you're inside Oxbow. We had rented an awesome little house 300 feet away from this restaurant, had to make reservations ahead of time. Also had to pre-order their famous Prime Rib dinner, of course they were sold out when we got there so we settled for Rib Eye instead...it was awful!... More

We were in the area for a couple days for a jet boat trip in Hells Canyon. We ate dinner at the Hells Canyon Inn twice. Both times the food was just excellent. Easily on par with any pub/steak restaurant in larger cities. Being the only restaurant so near to Oxbow it is great to have such good food available.... More

We stopped in on a very busy Taco Thursday evening. The place was packed, no place to sit in the bar, and we grabbed the last table in the restaurant, plus there were a ton of people dining outside. Service was understandably slow and the waitress was so apologetic, she could not even take our food order for 15 minutes.... More

I can't tell you enough about the Hells Canyon Inn. Get down there and eat some of the delicious food! Andy is one heck of a cook and the young ladies who served us were smiling and happy. :) I would go back again...and I am!

Pulling up to this restaurant you would think that you would be in for a rough nights sleep. The food was good, nothing to rave about, but good none the less. There is not much to the atmosphere as we were the only ones there for a bit until some people came in at the end of our meal. No... More
