Not fast food - not pre-made dishes - everything is to order. I have eaten here many a times over the years and whether it be breakfast, lunch or later on in the day the food is fresh, prepared to order and just plain good eaten.

Pretty average food, service, price. Nothing bad to say, nothing spectacular to say. If you want food, they have it.

Husband and I had very nice, quick and easy, dinner here while staying at the Best Western in Oregon City. Servers are friendly and efficient. Food is good, portions are generous, service is quick. I ordered a Reuben Sandwich with onion rings. Loved the onion rings, could finish only half the sandwich. Took other half back to hotel, put it... More

Breakfast at Hale's is a treat especially if you have the Swedish pancakes with lignon berry butter. They always have good bacon as well. Lunches are also great. Their special sauce is outstanding.

But I would like to. The service was just so-so the food was less than so so. I had chicken fried steak with gravy the gravy was like thicker than wallpaper paste and the steak was tough my eggs were overcooked and the service was slow my eggs probably would have been better if my waitress put on her toes....

I like to try local foods when I travel, and Hale's gave me the opportunity to try a new breakfast treat--Swedish pancakes with lingonberry butter--two large, thin pancakes with a dollop of butter infused with lingonberries. (I ordered the "senior breakfast" which was more than enough food). My breakfast companion ordered the same breakfast but with the "loaded hashbrowns" which... More

Average food, good service, often crowded at mealtimes. Go for the Swedish pancakes. Coffee is weak.

The decor is not the prettiest but the service was great and the food was good. If you come Sunday for breakfast plan on waiting a while. We come periodically and arrive at 1ish and the wait is considerably less. They have great French toasts and crepes. The hash browns are so so and the eggs are okay. But the... More
