Great Casual Dining

Loved the Fish Tacos....nice selection of sandwiches along with beer. Wine is probably available too, I just wanted a good, cold beer with my taco.

The food is really good but the waitress was scatterbrain Jane. If you can put up with poor service for good food, this place is for you. I give it one thumb's up, solely for the food.

I like this trendy pub in downtown The Dalles. They have a lot of beer choices (as you would expect from a pub) and some Oregon and Washington wines as well. The guy at the hotel where I was staying recommended the Rivertap. He said they don't have a big menu, but what they do have they prepare well. I... More

Great pub food! We were lucky enough to enjoy a live band the night we ate here. The food was very good and prices reasonable. I had the grilled portable burger and loved it! My husband had the BLT and thought it was very good. We really enjoyed the pub atmosphere/ambiance and our waitress was good too! They have a... More

Had the Thai chicken wrap, Very good choice. Lighter fare than some brew pubs. Good beer selection. Not much in the way of atmosphere but nice place.

We were traveling from Portland to the John Day Fossil Beds and stopped in the Dalles for lunch. Even though we showed up a few minutes before they opened, the young woman graciously let us in and served us, even though she was still setting up. I had the Bruschetta, and my mother had the Artisan Quesadilla. Both were outstanding!... More

Sorry to say, this used to be a great place to catch a game and a beer. The prices have crept up recently and the service is just not what I expect any more. Yeah, I'll probably still go in, but the trips will be fewer until I can see an improvement in service.

This was the second time we've eaten here, first time was pretty meh so I'm not sure why we came back. Food was awful! My hubby's fish was greasy and too salty, the fries were terrible, obviously frozen with little bits of whatever on them to make them more crispy but we dislike that kind. I ordered the chicken dinner... More

At dinner on a Friday night at about 7 p.m. the music was blaring. Not a good place to have a conversation with your dining partner. Food was average but hot and fresh.
