Great Food!

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was here. With the word "Saloon" in the name I thought it might be huge steaks and whiskey! But instead I got a great salmon dinner and a very good glass of wine. Service was very good. I was in The Dalles on business, so I was dining alone and... read more

We dined here April 20th because the Thai restaurant in town is closed Monday. Atmosphere ok, striving for the vintage feel because the building is old with high ceilings but doesn't quite get there because the interior is too new looking and too bright. Ordered cocktails which were fine and reasonably priced. The heart of my complaint about this place... More

The building is an old saloon right next to the railroad tracks in downtown The Dalles. I didn't really learn anything about the history of it, but it was quaint. The food was yummy. There were 6 in our party. Some had the very fresh oysters, and I had a special of the day which was great too. The local... More

When driving through The Dalles last week, we decided to stop for lunch. Not knowing where to stop, I began reading the reviews of restaurants on Trip Advisor. I decided on the Baldwin Saloon. We were so glad we found this place. The historic building with its unusual décor was very interesting. The service was excellent, and my avocado stuffed... More

I've been here a couple of times while passing through The Dalles. The restaurant is located in an old historic building with a lot of interesting and good character. The food here is consistently good and a lot better that I originally anticipated it to be. The menu is quite extensive and everything is very well prepared using very good... More

The food was very good; our server was absolutely excellent, but the place is exceedingly noisy. It's not banging dishes or the piano play: the customers were all shouting. My partner and I ate pretty much in silence because we could not be heard over the din of neighboring conversations.

I stopped here with my Dad and brother whilst on a road trip. It's a curious find, the place has real character with all the old oil paintings and piano on the floor above. We went for the prawn and crab stuffed avocado and halibut fish and chips. The stuffed avocado was awesome, it had good proper chucks of crab.... More

Had the ruebin and it was excellent as was the white bean soup (carrots and bell pepper bits in it) and french onion soup (copious amounts of cheese and onions).

Took a client here for lunch on his recommendation and it was great. I had the Bacon Lettuce and Tomatoe which was loaded with bacon and simply delicious on very good 12 grain bread.
