The service is a little slow but friendly. Nice atmosphere on the river with good food and very friendly people.

“Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

The outdoor seating is great. There's a nice outside garden where the kids enjoyed playing. The food was fabulous.

“Not sure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

A young lady at the front desk of the hotel we are staying at recommended the Windseeker ; saying the food was good and there is an excellent view of the Columbia River.

The landscape of flowers and shrubs in the front leading into the entrance is pretty and unique. All the diners were outside and do not blame them as it was a nice evening out. The inside dining area was empty and certainly did not resemble the pictures. It did not seem clean. The waitress was the hostess also and the only one waiting on the patrons.

We were not that hungry so we ordered a starter. The mushroom rockfeller with the 6 button stuffed mushrooms was excellent.

The deck could have been swept off and the unkept flowers could have been cleaned up. The view is pleasing from the deck/patio area.

It might be a place to give a second chance to see if there would be more waitresses and a separate hostess, as well as to see if the restaurant would be cleaner looking. The prices of the meals did not match the restaurant environment. In other words, the meals cost more than they should. Prices fitted a more upscaled restaurant.

“Welcoming, beautiful location and delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

This was my first time dining at the Windseeker and I was very impressed! We were seated with a beautiful view of the river, and were served by a very friendly and helpful lady. The food selection is fantastic. My dad had a steak and when he took the first bite, I thought he might need a box of tissues he was so happy. My salmon had a really tasty honey glaze and was cooked to perfection. I will definitely return!
