“Superb Salmon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

The Salmon Piccata dish I had last week at the Riverside Grill was possibly the best meal I have ever eaten anywhere and to think it was in a hotel restaurant makes it that much more remarklable. Great service from Mark who was a very knowledgable and efficient waiter in a beautiful setting on the Columbia River.

“Awesome restaurant right on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

This was a truly enjoyable experience, the view was incredible. You're right on the water and there isn't a table in the entire place that doesn't have a river view. The service was outstanding, and the food was as well. Each person in our party (four total) ordered something different, and everything was perfect! And the price was reasonable-- our party of 4, with drinks & tip, paid less than $80.

“Excellent spot for a large group dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

We were part of a wedding group attending a rehearsal dinner outdoors on a beautiful fall evening (heaters all around kept everyone warm). The food was plentiful and excellent. Everyone noted how unusual it was to have well cooked (not well done!) beef for a buffet dinner. Staff were helpful and nice. This seems like one of the nicest places in Hood River.

“good food slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2008

Since we were staying at the Best Western we decided to eat dinner here. We were given a coupon for 1/2 of a second entree which made the meal very economical. The setting overlooks the Colombia River and you have a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. We started with an appetizer of escargot and toast points. the escargot was hot and buttery with just the right amount of garlic. For dinner my wife had the halibut which was fresh and moist. Her only complaint was that her baked potato seemed to be microwaved and not truly baked. I had a dish called Chicken Breast a la Oscar. It was a bone-in breast topped with dungeness crab, asparagus, and bearnase sauce. It was delicious. On the downside, service was slow possibly due to understaffing and a large crowd. We felt bad for the older couple seated at the table next to us. They were seated right after us but had a different server. We were finished eating and getting up to leave and they had not even been served yet. I overheard the waiter apologizing because he said a large party had put their order in right before the couple's, but I did not hear him offer any compensation for the delay. I would have walked out long before if I had been in there shoes, it was over an hour.
Our breakfast the next morning was complimentary except for my wife's orange juice for which we were charged $3. If you stay at the motel you can order from the regular menu and pay or choose from a limited menu. The eggs and hash browns were well prepared.

“A Great Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2008

We've travelled a lot throughout the country and have found that eating at a hotel restaurant has not usually been the wisest dining choice. What a great surprise to discover the Riverside Grill at the Hood River Inn! We've never been disappointed by any meal there, though I have to admit that the breakfasts are my favorite--both the Poached Pear and the Eggs Benedict. Over the years, we've made a point to eat there even when we aren't staying at the hotel.
