Fun Place to visit. The portions are gigantic!!!!

Excellent place to eat along the Sandy River just outside of Troutdale. The building has loads of character, and Shirley the owner is like a local Icon. It is fun to have her rattle off the menu by heart which she knows so well, with such unique descriptions and salesmanship. The food is good old... read more

The outdoor patio was great! The food was delish and the portions huge. Well worth the trip! The inside is nice also.

Last Fall (2014) we stopped here on our way to Portland from Boise and had a wonderful meal. This July we purposefully went out of our way to stop here again. It seemed like the menu was different and considerably more expensive. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak dinner; the CF steak as was the gravy it was sitting in... More

To be fair... We only ate breakfast there and on a Sunday. The food was good. We had the seafood omelette and the bread pudding French toast. The portions were huge and the prices average for a tourist type place although there seemed to be quite a few locals there too. I would try it again when passing through the... More

If you are looking for a place that takes 1.5 hours to serve you your food and then rushes you out the door, this is the place to go. Au jus on my french dip was tasty. Temperature was correct. Ariel overcharged me for my meal and did not apologize for her error. When I asked another server why it... More

We "happened" onto this place - I needed something to eat before we headed further along on our trip up the river and this was about it (we had gone thru the town of Troutdale - and a number of places there, but . . . we hadn't seen them in time, etc. etc.) Upon entering, the staff was "OK"...

Went there for a Birthday celebration and had great service, food was certainly above average and an abundance of it, the atmosphere in outdoor seating was wonderful and very enjoyable, we will be back very soon! I had the Sea-Chicken stuffed with cream cheese, black olives, bay shrimp, served with roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes...simply delectable!

You know, I really wanted to enjoy this place. We arrived a little before 12:30 to enjoy lunch with my mom and brother. First off, our waitress seemed like she hated her life for being there and didn't seem interested in providing quality customer service. Then not to mention it took us over an hour to get our dinner, while... More

The atmosphere is great. The food it hit or miss though, and I have an example. The cheese and smoked salmon appetizer has great salmon with a good sized portion, but the cheese is just swiss and cheddar deli slices. AND the dish is priced at $18!! No, no, no, you can't disappoint like that. But other dishes are outstanding... More
