Good food plus history

A good place to stop on the way to or from Portland! Interesting history and decor, friendly and helpful waitstaff, and healthy, good-tasting food. No one at our tables was disappointed. Burgers and BLT on blue cheese bread were especially good.

We ate here with some friends while we were stopped here on a river cruise. We could see the sign from the boat so we walked over to have lunch. The service was fast and friendly. The décor is that of an old west saloon. We just had some great clam chowder and a BLT, along with drinks. We could... More

uptown eatery, fun decor, original to The Dalles. Must do once at least, don't miss the piano player climbing up to play in the late afternoon/evening and stroll thru the picture gallery.

First the atmosphere is quite wonderful with lots of local history and some quite special art work that is gallery quality. They have a brochure that relates the history of the building and paintings. The food was wonderful and offered a good selection. We were on our way to Portland and this was a nice stop overnight.

When I go to The Dalles, I so look forward to eating at the Baldwin Saloon - incredibly good hamburgers - homemade bread, fresh ground meat... french onion soup is delicious also. The roast beef sandwich my aunt ordered recently was a work of art. The wait staff is excellent and very attentive. It's history is intriguing. It began as... More

We met friends at this historical building for lunch and were so glad to discover it. 3 of us had the fettuccine with shrimp special and one the blt. All were excellent. This may become our new meeting place!

Visiting Baldwin Saloon made our time in The Dalles special. The homemade Caesar salad dressing was incredible! The daily special Chicken Parmesan was perfect on a bed of Alfredo fettuccine AND upon the homemade marinara fettuccine.

The service was terrible. The waiter was great but he was overwhelmed as he was the only waiter covering the outside patio area. Other than that the experience was good. I would go back.

The experience was hit or miss. As this was a true vacation with my husband, I decided to go for ambience, and the restaurant had a nice presence with an impressive bar. The wait staff were very pleasant. The chowder and bread were very tasty, but that was the best part of the meal. The chicken was tough, and the... More
