In fairness we were here before the season really got under way, and perhaps it might work its way up to three stars. The interior is pretty grim, the food was adequate. Since it was 92 degrees outside we were not motivated to sit outside.

We stopped into the Inn to have a burger and beer on our roadtrip. Beer was cold, burger was decent (it had been a busy weekend so they were out of food, which was totally fine and understandable being down there. these things happen) Nice big patio area and basiic/diner bar layout. Much potential here for a great business to... More

We try to eat at Hells Canyon Inn as much as possible. Their soft open was Mother's Day 2016 and they had a great Prime Rib menu. We then went back for a birthday and followed for Father's Day (2016) which was a great Rib Menu. They are just getting started and I can't wait to see what their Full... More

We stayed in Halfway for a night. Since there is only one restaurant there a local suggested we drive out to the Hells Canyon Inn to get better food. The food was average. I had beer battered fish and mashed potatoes. Both were tasty. My wife had a sirloin and enjoyed it. The iced tea was pretty nasty. Tasted like... More

We went looking for dinner before tomorrow's boat trip down the Snake River at Hell's Canyon, and came to this place because it was the closest restaurant of any kind offering dinner. My wife had their hamburger and concluded it was the best she has had anywhere, period. We hear that people come for miles for their burgers, and now... More

This restaurant is the best place to eat for miles around. There are a couple other places in Halfway but they don't even compare. I had the best smoked brisket one night and excellent pork chops the next night. The sides were great too. The chef really knows how to cook, not just throw some frozen stuff in the fryer.... More

12 members of our car club stopped for lunch on a drive through Hell's Canyon. Due to the time change between MST and PST, we got there half an hour before they opened on Sunday. They let us in early and got us rehydrated. Our orders were quickly taken and the food came right out. I had the mushroom/Swiss burger... More

Great personal restaurant! Excellent service and an outstanding setting! Mexican Specials on Thursdays, and smoked prime rib on prior request!

Love their food! Prime Rib excellent - always! My all time favorite is Andy's homemade raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing! He even whipped up some special one night for me when they were out of it! So awesome! Atmosphere is always so relaxing and it's just fun to go, eat the best food, have some drinks, and hang out with friends!
