My husband and I were told to try this place the next time we went to Bend.... we arrived around noon on a Friday to a wait. This is a small house, they do a great job trying to accommodate everyone, even larger parties. Once we were seated the shrimp and grits were calling my name. I'm from the south,... More

Chow always hits the spot with its unique, amazing flavors. I love the Corned Beef Hash dish, it is superb and my favorite menu item. However, every time I go there is super busy (which is awesome for business), there is a wait and line out the door. Rushed service (because they try to keep up with other tables), my... More

Came by at 9:30 on Sunday morning expecting good food with a wait. Food was as advertised. We had ham and eggs (all local and delicious) and huevos rancheros (ditto). Great meals come from great ingredients, Chow pays attention to the quality of each ingredient to excellent effect. Surprised to have only a short wait and an absolutely unhurried meal.... More

Some of the best and most creative vegetarian food that I have had. I really enjoyed the unique combinations and flavors.

I had the veggie Benedict... Sounds simple right? It was the best meal I think I've ever had... In my life. Wow. Chimichurry hollandaise, corn meal crusted tomatoes, bacon cheddar grits on the side. And everyone was so nice!

If you are a breakfast fan, you must visit Chow for breakfast. Aside from their commendable commitment to sourcing local sustainable ingredients, the food is simply awesome. You won't necessarily find your "diner-style" menu here, and that's good because we appreciate variety. However, they do offer Chicken-fried steak that is one of the best I've had. The menu offers some... More

I've been to Chow many times and it never disappoints. While the wait can be quite long, especially on a weekend, it is well worth it! They even have a cute little coffee bar area where you can sit and have a cup of coffee while you wait! They always have good specials to go along with their great regular... More

Chow was highly recommended to us by a number of locals. They've got the best staff who can multitask expertly and recommend a dish or side. They pack a bunch of tables in a small space when its cold and outdoor seating isn't popular, but you won't feel crowded. We lucked out and got the table under the signed Jeff... More

The food here was fabulous! We went on a Tuesday morning, so was surprised at the wait. The service was slow despite the few empty tables but the food was so absolutely fabulous that I hold no grudges!! The place is very charming, the staff pleasant, but the food is amazing! Thanks!
