I live in town and have tried hales several times. I will never return. Every time we have been there we get something nasty in our food. Last time the wife got a salad and it looked like someone had cleaned a hair brush into it. Just an awful experience every time.

WoW, what a surprise. Awesome menu, reasonable prices and monstrous portions. Party of 3. Steak was perfect, Halibut very fresh and perfectly fried and I believe an order of shrimp fettuccini (or something like that) which was said to also be delicious. Would go back often, but I don't live near here. Well done! Service was also great!

Been to Hale's several times and have always been satisfied. Their meals are HUGE and generally flavorful. As much as I want to love fried food, I would have to say that Hales is either very greasy, over breaded and/or the quality of the product does not meet my expectation. I have had the fish and chips and would not... More

We had lunch at Hales based on the recommendation of a local antique dealer. Our first time and what a delightful surprise! Hales is a long-standing family restaurant of the old school. Really good basic food well prepared and served by really good and fun servers. Burgers are wonderful, the beef quesadilla was innovative and tasty. Watch out - -... More

This is always a stop for me. They give you more food than you can eat, so come hungry and it is delicious.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to another destination. It was our first time; we picked this place based on Yelp reviews. We were so glad we did! The service was super friendly and helpful. The portions were huge and all the food was fresh and tasty. The establishment has been around for a long time, and the... More

Hale's in Hermiston, Oregon is the kind of homey, comfy, unadorned, "we-serve-almost-every-kind-of-traditional-American-food" restaurant that can be found only in smaller towns and on highways. I stopped there for the first time for lunch today and had the BBQ beef brisket sandwich, slices of beef served along side slices of Texas toast, with a mountain of fries on the side. The... More

Had dinner with a cousin and her family. They live in Hermiston and suggested it. GREAT suggestion. It is a small place in old town Hermiston. Old West decor with a lot of wood. Service was fantastic - fast and pleasant. I had a chicken taco salad - HUGE. In addition to the salad, it also came with a LOT... More
