We were at the hotel for an event and went for lunch at the Quay. Just don't do it. The lunch menu is a buffet for $16.95 per person. We assumed (wrong) that you could order off the menu. Given our time frame, we were stuck. The buffet was mediocre. The vegetables were lukewarm, the dessert overly sweet, the chicken... More

We met long time friends for a beverage and bite to eat at 6 pm. It was a Sunday evening and we were disappointed the restaurant was closed. We met in the lounge and found a very limited menu - I ordered a rueben sandwich which was disappointing. It was okay - as was my margarita, however it just lacked... More

Staying here for Tiki Kon 2014. Walked in for breakfast, and there were 3 people ahead of me. When a worker-bee finally turned up, he assumed that all 4 of us were together. It actually took a couple of minutes to get this rocket scientist to understand we were 3 separate parties! Got that squared away, and I finally got... More

The halibut fish and chips were great. We ordered them for room service and it arrived in less than 15 minutes!. The waitress was very kind to us as we were so tired we could hardly talk.

This was the original restaurant at the intersection of I-5 on the Washington/Oregon border: it's been in existence since the late 50's. Alas, it hasn't changed much since; maybe a spiffing up occasionally, but at least it's fairly well maintained, at least for its years. Surprisingly, the food is still good, the service decent and the prices OK. Take a... More

My wife and I used to go to the Quay often from 1995 to 2010. The chef back then was great. Every dinner had bread, soup or salad, and a gourmet main dish. I can think back on some of the meals I've had there over the years and many of them stand out as the best restaurant dinners I've... More

We completely enjoyed the local clams with a broth that was light and delicious, followed by seared scallops that were cooked to perfection. The only thing that could have been better was to have available a gluten free bread ... But that isn't available at many places. The flour less chocolate torte was the perfect finishing touch to a relaxing... More

We live in Portland and have headed up to The Quay Restaurant for the past several years. It's always so enjoyable and we like the retro vibe of the restaurant, bar and menu. We have particularly look forward to their lovely Sunday buffet and hope that management continues on with that tradition as we love to bring our friends there.... More

The service here is always excellent. We usually go for the sunset supper and have never been disappointed with the food. We've heard they are discontinuing their Sunday brunch which is a crying shame!!! It has always been excellent and is half the cost of anywhere comparable in Portland!

It was Saturday night. We went here because there was a long wait at McMinimum's. This place was hustling too because they were about to have music and a post Halloween party. It was a bit too loud and I had to scream to be heard. Most things on the menu were quite expensive. The burger & fries at $9.00... More
