“good food - cool service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We have eaten here a number of times and found the food to be very good. I love the veggie burger and black bean chili. My husband has tried many things on the menu and enjoys most all of the selections, They have a wonderful salsa and sun dried tomato vinaigrette that are memorable. There are a nice selection of beers on tap and good wines, too. We feel that the service is sometimes not very friendly to the point of making us not want to come back. It is too bad because we would dine there more often.

“Best little secret eatery in the Columbia Gorge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We have gone here numerous times over the years and have never been disappointed. We recently discovered they serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays and there is nothing that comes close to this place for quality of food, value, and service. They care about what they serve and everything we have had has been delicious and well prepared. The menu is not large but I find that a positive aspect, they now what they are doing. No restaraunt in the area can compare for a combination of high quality food, excellent value, and unique and friendly atmosphere.

“Great find in the Gorge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

While staying at the Skamania Lodge went into Stevenson for lunch. Found the Big River Grill and had a nice lunch ,soceye salmon sandwich and a creme of mushroom soup. Big Grill has a great selection of local brewed beers. Service was very good and friendly.
Went back the next night for dinner and again the service was good and the Tai chicken with peanut sauce was very good . The menu is eclectic and the beer selection good , I would go back anytime I was in this part of the county again .
