Wonderful food. Outstanding owners and serving staff. Outside decor is very simple as they have been in business for 40 years. Walk in and be warmly surprised into an excellent dinning experience. All food fresh and prepared perfect. Enjoy dinner for any occasion and even just a girls night out. Thank us later. Delicious.

We had supper at the Hi Way House and were very well-pleased with our food, the service, and the decor. I had a Jack Daniels steak that was cooked just right. Ask about the sharing special that allows a couple to share a main course (the steaks are large). For a small additional fee the second person gets a salad... More

What a nice surprise to walk in and find you are looking at elegant décor and music the likes of which Frank Sinatra might have enjoyed. The food was delicious and a good variety of items were offered including seafood and steaks. We had the Prime Rib and it was excellent. The drinks were quite good and presented in a... More

Off the beaten path is the old hwy 30. If you take the first exit to The Dalles and go left across the freeway about 1/4 mile, then take a right to follow the old hwy, you'll go by the Hi Way House. They have quite a reputation when it comes to a good steak. It will melt in your... More

Well I'm not trying to be mean but this was not the place to go. I wanted to take my wife out to a nice dinner and drinks and immediately knew I was in the wrong place when we came in. Only one other couple, over priced menu and weak drinks. I did not want to order a 30 steak... More

Curious Twin Peakish place... I went ahead and ordered the ribeye, medium rare with rice and the soup. Soup last night was "seafood bisque", but I kid you not, it was a bowl of spoon standing sludge, starched to within an inch of it's like, and made with KRAB. Literally, krab with a K. I told the water that horror... More

My husband and I both had the Jack Daniels steak. EXCELLENT! I had mine with a seafood bisque. There were lots of options to choose from. I am picky about my soup, and this was hot, very flavorful. Could have made it the meal. The portion sizes were more than adequate.., thus i am looking forward to a steak sand... More

We went back to try the Hi Way House, we heard it was under new management. The food is still dreary. We had the Cajun sandwiches but they were far from being Cajun fare. Absolutely no zip. Inside is still dark and mid century. A shout out to the wait staff who were very courteous and helpful. They simply can't... More
