What a place

I have only one thing to say. OMG!!!! Don't be put off by the looks of the outside of the building. This is without a doubt the biggest and best steak I have ever eaten.

This is a special place for an excellent meal with lots of ambiance. Located some 60 miles from LaPine, Oregon, off Hiway 31, it takes a bit of special effort to go to this restaurant. They are open Thursday through Sunday. Reservations are required and they do not accept credit cards. Bring cash. There is no alcohol available or allowed.... More

We made reservations, and when you do, you decide if you want a whole chickend or a HUGE piece of beef. Only three (our of 9) went with the chicken. It is great food, starts with a salad, soup or beans and meat, then a little desert. No alcohol served, you can either have unsweetened ice tea, or lemonade with... More

Our group of 11 friends met there for dinner after a day of hiking Fort Rock and Derrick Cave. We were seated promptly and the feast began. Large mugs of tea and lemonade, freshly baked rolls with plenty of butter, two delicious soups, then either roasted chicken or grilled tri tip, accompanied by big baked potatoes in foil with butter...

We had a lovely time at the Cowboy Dinner Tree. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun and the food was really good. It was a very fun visit! We would go back again!

Growing up in Central Oregon I heard about the cowboy dinner tree but hadn't experienced it. The descriptions describe the experience well and what to expect . This is as Rustic as rustic gets, but fun and unique experience. The food is good but not great. The portions are ridiculously huge. Bring a cooler for the left overs. But until... More

Total chuckwagon throwback place! Sirloin steak better than expected and service was excellent. Only worthy of the drive time if you are planning adventures in the Oregon Outback, like hiking, hot springs, cycling or camping ...

We tend to visit twice per year with guests from out of town. It's the total,experience that gets the positive reviews from everyone. The atmosphere is the selling point. I don't want to diminish the food as it is good but not great. We will return.
