We ate here twice on a recent trip to Portland when we were staying nearby at Edgefield and wanted a better dining experience food-wise. For lunch one day we had the Rueben which is just a stomach stretching triple decker sandwich filled with great tastes of grilled bread, turkey, corn beef and sauerkraut. For dinner we had the Sloppy Joe... More

I happened to be driving from Portland to Spokane last August. I had seen the episode of Guy Fieri's DD & D the day before, so I decided to get off the interstate and try it for breakfast. I really enjoyed the interiors design, the service was impecable, and the breakfast was great! Having spent many years in the business,... More

This is a must go place if you're near Troutdale. It's located along a scenic highway. It's well maintained, spacious, eclectic and very homey. The owner, Shirley, is a ball of fire and was actually our server. I don't know how she finds all that energy. Spunky too. This restaurant was recommended while we were at an antique shop in... More

We made a trip from 30 miles away to check out this establishment. We had seen it on Grimm and heard about the DD & D episode. We went for happy hour, but discovered that it did not exist. The extensive list of cocktails failed to list a single price (never a good sign). In addition, the drinks all seemed... More

First time visitor to this riverfront establishment. The décor is charming and very Northwest. I read TA reviewer's warnings about the expensive menu items so we were not surprised. I also surmised that the absence of menu prices on the web site is probably a wise strategy. The business was busy on a Sunday afternoon so they indeed can and... More

My daughter and I stopped here after a day of hiking in the Gorge. She had heard about it from "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Though a bit off the highway it is an easy, short detour from I-5. A very cozy and authentic ambiance with low ceilings and wood paneling everywhere. Friendly staff. The food is somewhat expensive ($15 range... More

We were staying in Portland and met some friends here for a late breakfast. It was a beautiful, but short drive from the city and well worth it! There were only a handful of people in there when we arrived at 10 am. The service was great and the food was phenomenal! I've never had an omelet with shrimp, fresh... More

What an unexpected Jewel! Stopped by after taking some out of town guests to Crown Point and walked into a witer wonderland. The staff was great, the back of the place had been totally decorated with balloons and seasonal festive decorations. We had drinks and some happy hour food all excellent quality and price. They said it is always packed... More

We look for the places that "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" goes to, and we want to know if they are the real deal. This place was great! The server Al, was great! Food was great too. Good varied selection. Nice location too. Not cheap, but in this business, you get what you pay for. Worth the visit, for sure. We... More

This place is on the way to the historic Columbia Scenic Highway, just outside of Troudale, OR. I've eaten here before and wanted my out of town friends to experience this hidden gem. On nice summer days, the outdoor seating is a must! Pretty much anything on the menu is good. Good comfort food selections, including the omelettes, burgers and... More
