Wonderful Atmosphere and Decor

Nice place with a unique menu. I had a nitrogen infused IPA that was an absolutely fantastic beer, smooth as it ever was. We had a cheese / meat platter and some scallops for an appetizer. Both were good but the scallops were smaller than grapes. For our main entrees everyone commented the food was very good. My only complaint... More

Nicely designed, Hinterland is a mix of natural materials, and the dining area is really attractive. My spouse and I dined early on a Thursday evening, as we didn't want to rush dinner before leaving to go to a show at 7:30 pm. We arrived at 5 pm and were promptly seated - we were the only ones dining, and... More

Dined at Hinterland on a Saturday night and everything was nearly perfect. We were greeted promptly and cheerfully and decided to grab a drink first at the front bar while we waited for our other guests to arrive. Again greeted promptly but couldn't understand the slow service since the bar wasn't crowded. When our other guests arrived we told the... More

This was my 2nd time dining at Hinterland and I'm ready for my 3rd. I sat at the bar on a Tuesday, around 6:30 or so for a light dinner. Great ambiance, with dim lightening and high ceilings; and a good mix of people to watch. A great spot for a work dinner or a special date. The beet salad... More

We had the Chef's table with beer paring and 7 courses prepared tableside by Chef Dan Van Rite. We must have had it, that's what it said we would get on their website, and what we ask for and paid for. Hmm..there wasn't any paring, just a parade of beer, most served when there was no food on the table.... More

We had the groom's dinner for our son & fiance at Hinterland and we could not have been more pleased. Andrea made the planning stage very easy. The private party room, with full bar service, was perfect for our special occasion. We chose the family style entrees plus an appetizer selection prior to dinner. We chose the pork and scallop...

The menu is very focused on wild game and clever ways to incorporate that into Gastropub food. Be sure to buy the cooks a round and you'll get a fee surprises!

Our son lives in Milwaukee, WI and we are in Oregon. We offered to take of the rehearsal dinner for his upcoming wedding, but being several hundred miles away, we thought it might get complicated. Not so, once we came across HINTERLAND. Andrea worked with us on a special menu, we had endless options. Hinterland also has several seating areas... More

What a wonderful place. I highly recommend it. We had a very late reservation with the hotel and when they called to confirm we were arriving, I mentioned we might like to eat early. They said to come when ever and they would accommodate us. Nice. Upon arriving, with our 9-year-old, the hostess mention that there was a hamburger on... More
