The drinks are great, the kids play area is great, the country girl cherry pizza is beyond delicious. It's like entering a multi-dimensional taste wormhole that takes you through all of the best flavors ever to exist, and then brings you back to a place where you've eaten way too much, way too fast and are now comatose on a...

Poor pizza. Difficult menu to understand . Over charged and well overrated. Had seen the rating and tried it.

We really enjoyed our meal here The place was fairly busy and the wait a bit long, but once seated the service was good and the food noteworthy. Have no hesitations recommending to others and would return again when we go back to the area.

ALways crowded so be prepared to wait! It is WORTH IT!!! A tad noisy but its that type of place. Enjoyable and lots of activity all around. We sat at the Bar right in front of the Pizza oven watching the cooks "do their magic" Simply Awesome . Everything was great Don't miss it!

We were there on a beautiful fall day and enjoyed a yummy hot butter rum drink. My husband had the mac & cheese with chorizo and almost licked the plate. He also had a bloody mary that was too spicy for our taste. My son had a cheese pizza (he's the expert & knows what he likes), his opinion is... More

This is in a great location right across from the water, which also makes it a very busy spot most days. The food is always wonderful, with ingredients from the local farmers as much as possible. The Country Girl pizza is not to be missed with cherries and chorizo-sounds crazy but it's delicious. The stew is also a good choice... More

We decided to take a more scenic drive home to Bend from Portland, and planned on Breakfast/Lunch in Hood River. Drove around the town for a bit before finding Solstice Wood Fire. What a great place! With a cool post-modern industrialist vibe, and the wonderful smell of the wood fired pizza oven, what could go wrong? Our waitress (Jayme) was... More

We came here with 12 others from my Sons wedding party. As busy as they were they accommodated everyone. Being from the east coast the pizza would not bring praise from the traditionalists but that's their loss. We ordered an assortment from the menu and some that was not on the menu. Absolutely amazing! The unique pizza combinations were a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the pizza at this restaurant. Of course we couldn't agree on which pizza to get, so we ordered two...and only had a bit left over...it was that good. The pizza with the dried cherries on it sounded so weird, but I had to try it. Loved it. Amazing flavor combinations! My husband opted for... More
