We were in The Dalles one night as part of a two month road trip and having lived in Germany for two years, whenever I see a German Restaurant I take the opportunity to relive my glory days which weren’t all the glorious yet memorable....It was 115 degrees which I’m sure is some kind of record for The Dalles so some beer was definitely in order. My wife and I started with a double Jameson which we used to chase some very hoppy IPA beer called Elysian Space Dust. For an appetizer we shared a fondue that had sausage and bread for dipping and then shared the Veal Schnitzel with Spaetzle, steamed veggies and a salad with Bleu Cheese. The food was excellent as were the drinks and the service was outstanding. We were fortunate to have Bob the bartender/server as the person that took care of us. He’s an older gentleman that is a hard working fun guy. Don’t know when I’ll be back in The Dalles, but when I am this is my new go to place! Highly recommend!More

Five of us greeted, sat down at large, clean corner table. Great live band playing great tunes, served drinks quickly. Food order taken and delivered quickly. Plenty of other folks here as well - all enjoying themselves. Band wrapped things up at 9 sharp and...soon the place was empty and being cleaned up. Glad we made the decision to come here. Not a fan of their German Sausage. Halibut and the Tuna sandwiches were very good. Looking forward to passing through The Dalles again, Zim's will be on our list. Gizzards are fantastic!More

Zim's has been a go getter with great pub food and service. But dont let the "pub food" fool you, its not 19 month frozen left overs. The food is fresh and well prepared. With the COVID restrictions going on, the staff at Zims' has...stepped up with delivery, and they do it really well. Friendly staff, good food, and delivery that is great, and fast (better then pizza :) THANK YOU ZIMS :) :)More

In the middle of this pandemic, this restaurant is a bright shining light in the city of the Dalles. The management team seems to be a no fuss, no baloney group. Yet very efficient and customer service oriented. The menu was varied, And the portions...were very large… We enjoyed our meal here immensely. As the Dells is largely conservative, this restaurant reflects those values. The nonsense going on in Portland probably would not fly here. They have definitely earned our repeat business.More

Local sports-type pub with a very local clientele. We had a nice dinner there, with a nice young waiter who admitted to us that he was new. The steak/mushroom soup was very good; we ordered the 5-piece onion rings, which were made from HUGE Walla...Walla sweet onions and were too much for us; I had the wiener schnitzel, which was gigantic; Partner had the steak, which was also gigantic. Surprisingly good food for a local / sports place. Also: not expensive.More

I had a terrific rib eye steak followed by their homemade bread pudding. Good food. No ambiance. Loud. TV's everywhere. BUT I wouldn't miss it for anything. The service is great and the beer is quite good. Friday rib eye special and Saturday prime rib...special. This is where the locals eat.More

From the outside, a person might think this is just a hole in the wall. Wrong! this is probably the best place to eat in town. The service might be slow, only because the staff to people is not enough. lots of TVs and good...country music being played.More

Good food, well prepared, and comfortable portions for the price. Steaks are very good. There is pool tables, a bar, and multiple TV's on various channels around the rooms. Children can come in during certain hours for meals but are limited in the areas of...the building they may be in. They have weekend entertainment in the evenings often.More

This was alright for an old fashioned Pub. The food was fine, not spectacular but ok, the staff were slow unless you were a regular. We felt 'ignored' by staff and several times had to go to the bar and order our drink.

Typical sports bar nothing to write back home about. There was people here in a Saturday; a but disappointed that there was no local breweries on tap.

Laid back, great beer, excellent food. The service was good considering it very busy. The owners are wonderful--they keep the place very clean. Older crowd but that's great seeing as how im one of them.
