We came to HR for the weekend and searched for a good dinner place. We decided this one had more variety then one on the water and I have to say I am so glad we went. We got there right after they opened at 4:30 and where seated right away. It was Valentine's weekend and it got really busy.... More

We stumbled into the Mesquitery sort of by chance. It is a bit odd in it's location, but serves good food and service was good. The place was fairly busy on a weekday evening, and several people seemed to be doing take-out. It does seem a bit pricey for eating there regularly, but is a fun treat for an occasional... More

Awesome Polish comfort items on the menu. Get Polish beer, Perogi, and the Schnitzel! Amazing! Other dishes were still great. Perfect small-town joint at a great price. I wish we had this closers to our own town!

We had a party of 15 and the service was great. Our server Beau was outgoing, fun, and accommodating. He recommended the filet and it was very good. Small space but good food.

I have gone to this restaurant for many years and thought I should share how amazing it is! They have something for everyone on their menu. The clam chowder is amazing! Great food, drinks and desserts. Definitely a must in Hood River!

The Mesquitery has a wonderful menu to pick from year round, and Chris also offers a nice variety of evening specials. Last night, they surprised me with a Rack of Lamb served with a wonderful tomato-mint sauce!! The "chops" were separated and surrounded by the sauce and topped with fresh crushed mint. Delicious! I added their marvelous salad and a... More

We had a NY strip dinner and a Salmon dinner that was great. The restaurant is small, but very cozy and enjoyable, and the service was great.

I ate here as it had pretty good reviews on trip advisors. It's nothing special. House salad is plain. I had pork tenderloin which was ok but Luke warm. Baked beans were pretty good. For the cost I would not return. No ambiance. It's connected to a bar so the place has a very earthy feel. Service was pretty good.... More

We stopped here before - We started with Piroshky’s – never had this Russian appetizer. It was very good – stuffed with potato and cheese and bacon. I had the Porterhouse. It was good – lacked seasoning but still good. I always worry when a server asks me if I want steak sauce – red flag. But the steak was... More
