Local Color, Good Food

The Dalles is not a city noted for metropolitan sophistication and haute cuisine, but the Baldwin Saloon should please most diners. It combines an atmosphere reflecting the town's and the building's Wild West past, with a good menu and wine list. The decor is great, like something out of a movie... read more

Sat at bar due to no tables, and waited 10 minutes. Asked bartender if he was taking our order. He said, "No. You have to wait for your waiter, and, actually, since you sat at bar, you are LAST PRIORITY." We left. Will spend our money elsewhere.

The Baldwin Saloon is located in an historic building and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the huge wooden bar for a drink, looking at the old photos and of course, our meal. Our waitress was friendly, accommodating, informative as to the craft beer selection and food and service was excellent. The food was wonderful as well!

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. There is so much history in this building. It was like being in an old-time Oregon saloon. The antique furnishings were wonderful. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms which were very good. I had the baby shrimp fettuccini alfredo and my sis had the pork tenderloin. Both were very good, as were... More

I recently went to Baldwins with my husband and was very disappointed. The food there normally is about average but this time I ordered chicken which came with a salad. My salad came with very little lettuce and drenched in dressing, I could not eat it. My main dish chicken came and it had been frozen the outsides were clear... More

It seems like this is one of the popular spots in town - I had a 20 minute wait to get a table on a Monday night. Service was attentive but not overly so. Food that I ordered was nothing special - basic lettuce and some croutons for a side salad and rather gummy, heavy pasta alfredo that must have... More

Rib eye and Prime rib were excellent, cooked exactly to order, good portions and service. I would return if I'm back in the area.

If you're looking for good food and a historical setting, the Baldwin Saloon is the place to go. We've been coming here for 24 years and everything has been consistently good. All of the freshly made pasta dishes are over-the-top, followed by the seafood, steak, and burger/sandwich selections. Yeah, the prices are a little high - but if you want... More
