“not a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

we went for dinner here and tried to sit as far away from the "pianist" who was managing to hit 3 out of 4 right notes as we could and ordered a starter and main.
we were only halfway through our starter when the distinctly average main course arrived so by the time we got to it it was lukewarm.
it was not very busy so there was no excuse for the rushed service--we were I and out in 45 minutes, not a relaxing experience !

“Great food and history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The food was delicious and service was excellent. There was a live pianist playing old time music that blended in well with the authentically vintage decor. After dinner my husband and I walked downtown and enjoyed looking at some historical buildings. I would do the again!

“Good food, excellent service, period finishes - worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

My wife and I had dinner there recently and went based on both the Trip Advisor recommendations and those from the folks at our hotel (i.e., other travellers who'd eaten there).
I had a very good seafood pasta dish which featured both salmon and halibut, along with some clams, mussels and shrimp. My wife had a fried seafood platter and, while the fish was well-prepared, we thought that the portion was a bit small for the money (about $25).
They had a nice lady playing classic "saloon tunes" on an old piano that definitely added to the atmosphere. And while they were very busy (on a Friday night), they did provide very good service.

“Good Food - Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Baldwin Saloon is within walking distance of the Dalles Hotel - in fact, the front desk clerk recommended it when we asked for a nice place for lunch. She even provided us with a discount coupon. The food was well-prepared - menu was big and diverse. The service was a little slow, but friendly. We will eat there again.

“Never Disappoints...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Baldwin has outstanding food and great service. Most everything is homemade including such things as hamburger buns! They have great burgers!
