“My favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is simultaneously my favorite Mcmenamins and my favorite waterfront restaurant! Mcmenamins food is always awesome, but on the water is the best way to enjoy it! The service is a little less awesome at this location but it's still good. On a sunny day, the deck is the place to be!

“Ruby birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

It was super busy, but the staff was able to keep up and keep a great attitude. I had a chicken burger that was amazing.

“Patron for years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We went to mcMenamins on the river every Thursday for years. I used to love the wings and fries and other weekly specials. But things started to shift, prices started going up, service going down, food not as hot or good. I don't know what happened but if we go to a McMenamins, it is usually Kennedy school now.

“Great brews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Right on the Columbia River, very good brew food and very good beer, they brew their own. This is one of many McMenamin locations in the area, they pay attention to details to make their locations something to talk about.

“Great place to eat right on the Columbia River.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

A fun restaurant to sit have a glass of beer or wine, love sitting out on the patio watching the river traffic and planes take off. The staff is always friendly, the food is casual and good. Love to relax, meet friends for the happy hour or dinner.
