The trip into Camp Sherman is definitely worth it. This little restaurant is nestled among gigantic trees and close to the Metolius River. The food is tasty and the menu offers many fine dining choices! We were celebrating an anniversary, and while not a secluded, low light, romantic setting, the staff made us feel like w were the only ones... More

Located in the woods by one of the most beautiful rivers in the USA, is a charming restaurant with delicious food. The staff is friendly and helpful. I could eat there twice a week!!

It was a couple of years ago that we camped at the Metolius Rver and we had good memories of the Kokanee Cafe. This summer we were camping close enough to make a visit. I was glad I made a reservation because they were very busy. Ordered Scalaps and beet salad for appetizers. Only got 3 scalops (about $5 per... More

In tiny Camp Sherman, perhaps best known to fly fisherpeople because it's situated on the famous Metolius River, one wouldn't expect to find a restaurant of this caliber. An ample menu of delicious, well-presented American fare, friendly servers, indoor or outdoor (in season) seating and a full bar, all with reasonable prices, make this a special stop in Central Oregon....

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. Maybe everything tastes better in nature? We were a large party; we were warmly greeted and our server was great in her recommended dishes and the wine selection. We mostly ordered seafood with one lamb dish. The prices are extraordinarily high -higher than what's listed on the website - (I know,... More

We had dinner one night (sorry we had bought so much food to cook) and it was so delicious. The crème brulle was the best ever! The staff was top notched. Make sure to make a reservation early! They were busy!!!

Excellent chef, with a solid menu emphasizing fish, and all natural ingredients. This is a high performing restaurant in the middle of the woods, and a very pleasant experience.

Just one of those places you need to stop at. I wouldn't have known if I wasn't meeting a friend. The place is very cool and very elegant in a casual mountain way. I didn't eat there but we did have a couple of drinks and the rating is bases simply on being a cool place in the middle of... More
