Nice spot along the river

I had dinner on the deck overlooking the Columbia River. This business is close the I-5 bridge and is a little noisy. The food was good, the mojito was great. It is close to the city center and can be accessed with a short walk from the Red Lion Hotel.

Great food as usual. Perfect atmosphere for a date night (in our case an anniversary). We sat indoors where the wind was not hitting us with the perfect view of the Columbia through the open doors. The Smoked salmon cakes were so good. My husband absolutely enjoyed the coconut crusted ahi. We tried three other places before. Service was great.... More

Great location right on the river with a wonderful view. The servers were gracious and friendly and professional. We had a couple of things that were not as great. They were out of a number of the craft beers on their menu, so we had to go over the list a few times to figure out what they did have.... More

Never had a bad time at a McMenamins before this. Server had no knowledge of menu at all. Told us that "Diet Rite" had sugar in it, she asked the bartender and still insisted. So we ordered water which turned her snippy. Tried to explain need for sugar free. No Clue. So. They advertised gluten free sandwich bun option, but... More

Waited 10 minutes before anyone helped us then they did not return until long after our beverages were done. Planned to eat dinner but at that point decide to go somewhere else were staff was willing... More

On a Saturday at noon, sunny day, parking lot full, restaurant crowded and a table on the patio for four is available for us. We sat in the sun, enjoying the company and the view while the wait staff made us most welcome. The menu offers many items for our vegetarians, and gluten free friends as well. The fish and... More

We were a group of four adults & one small child. Every one ordered different food except myself and my Grandson. We ordered Jambalaya. It was the best Jambalaya I have had. Every one else loved their food also.
