Burger here looked bad in addition to tasting bad. Chicken/BLT had very dry chicken. Salmon chowder was actually good. Salads - nothing special.

I think this place could be good maybe I picked a bad night. Our server was absolutely wonderful was so overworked had the whole place by herself cleaning tables and servicing the food and taking orders she could not keep up most of the tables...were dirty. We ordered a pizza and shared that and although it was good you couldn’t even tell it had sauce on it at all it was like toppings on a very good crust. My companion tried a couple of the IPA beers one real dark and said that they both were very very good.More

Visited the Cascade Locks Ale House a dark rainy, wintry night last week. Immediately made welcome, the wait staff could not have been nicer. Had a wonderful meal with huge portions and an IPA. I had walked to the location from my lodging, (Cascade Motel,...another great place), as I had arrived via small aircraft at a nearby airstrip that night. When it came time to leave, the owner, Shelley, was kind enough to give me a ride back saving me from a cold drenching. Never met any of these folks before, but they were wonderful! I cannot overstress the friendliness and welcoming atmosphere in this little brewpub. Anytime in the future that we are anywhere near, we will be back! Thank you Shelley, you guys are the BEST! Sincerely, Carl HicksMore

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed splitting the chef salad and a small gorge pizza. The portions were plenty big and we even had a few slices leftover. The server was very friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Planned to stop on a long day's drive to eat at the Riverview restaurant nearby but they closed @ 4pm on a Sunday so II went over to CLAH instead. Cheerful friendly guy at door, greeted me, told me to take elevator t 3rd floor...for food. Did so & Sat at the bar for 5 minutes while the bartendress chatted w the only 2 other ppl at the bar. Moved to a table & waited some more thinking that there might be a floor waitress. Finally waved the bartender down, got a menu & ordered, surprised they don't take cash (inconvenient) & you had to pay & TIP when you order....aren't tips supposed to reflect service, hence tipping afterwards. ????? Food came, ordered a meal salad which came in a smallish bowl, no bread but a big mound of bland quinoa in the salad. Greens were fresh & I could see they were dressed but was absolutely tasteless. Ordered chicken as an add on, but didn't realize it was chunks of deep FRIED chicken. Wasn't very good. Never came by to ask how the food was. Ordered a small glass of beer & bill was $26.00, totally not worth it, was very tired/hungry & so this was pretty disappointing esp the mediocre service when there were very few other customers.More

Was there in the middle of PCT Days. Had a burger & it was good. Nice place in the main drag in town. If you want basic pub grub this is it. I didn’t try their pizza but heard it was good.

Stopped here for lunch after my trip over the Bridge of the Gods and I was mighty hungry. I decided this is where I’d have a burger and it was great! Very nice food, a bit more than expected but it was really good. Staff...were friendly, service a bit slow or I was really hungry. Let’s say a little of each. Overall it was really good and given the chance I would go again.More

We loved their pizza, the crust was not too thick, the sauce had some kick and it was just tasty. Nice selection of draft beers. We stopped here to wait for a bus after realizing that Uber and Lyft don't service this area and it...was a great place to while away a few hours. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We also bought some of their homemade horseradish, wow!More

Unplanned stop along the Columbia River found us at The Ale House. The service was very good, friendly and prompt. We ordered the Jamaican Pizza. Wow! Amazing flavor going on there! I'm not a pizza fan normally, but this would make me be one. If...I lived nearby it would be my go to.More

Had a party of seven after church and had a great lunch outside. Service was good and the food was better. Their "famous" horseradish was top tier, or tear because I teared up! Awesome indeed.

We'd had a rather tiring trip from the coast and chose this eatery because it wasn't far from our hotel. It was adequate. For me, the best part was the pint of ale. My pulled-pork BBQ was a reasonable facsimile of genuine, slow-cooked pork barbecue....I'm a native of south Georgia, the U.S. state not the country, with kith and kin throughout the Carolina low-country and Georgia where feuds have been known to divide families when it comes to pulled-pork barbecue recipes, methods, and sauces. The Ale House version simply tasted as though a pork roast had been cooked over fire, torn apart, and then smothered in their version of a barbecue sauce. Ergo, my choice of words—reasonable facsimile. Tasty though. My spouse had a bowl of salmon chowder and a salad. Both were very good. She said the mixed greens were fresh and varied and the chowder "hearty" with excellent salmon. The service was superb. The town sits astride the Pacific Crest Trail and we noticed several hikers who were apparently replenishing their carbs with gusto. During our supper I asked a young man (attired in hiking apparel) who was busing tables a question about the ale I was drinking. He replied that he didn't know the answer because he was a hiker working off his fare. He, however, did produce someone who answered my query. The entire atmosphere was one of conviviality and reminded us of some of the taverns we've visited in Europe.More

Stopped here because the exit looked convenient and we were hungry for lunch. Glad we did. Good salad, very good sliders (tried both the pulled pork and burger), perhaps the best fries ever. Sadly, too much driving left today to try the beers but 10...microbrews on tap was hard to pass. Very reasonable price. Would definitely do it again.More
