If I had not arrived with a car and did not have my iPhone with me - I might have believed that I had travelled back in time......this restaurant has been around for 140 years and looks like it came straight out of a western - with a live piano player to complete the saloon atmosphere. Everything on the menu... More

Their food is excellent, the atmosphere is casual and the drinks are good. It used to be a saddle shop back in the day. It's quite quaint.

dinner salad and onion soup are really nice. especially the onion soup really stands out, which was full of beefy test. There are also many varieties of nice wine, spirits. it also has a very decent bar desk.

High ceilings and walls covered in wonderful massive paintings characterize this historic restaurant. Food may not have you writing home in raptures, but it's also just fine, and the desserts are even better. The overall experience is lovely. I'd visit again.

Read about this original saloon online before our trip and made plans to check it out, we were not disappointed. Service was incredible, food absolutely to die for and the atmosphere was like something out of an old western. The piano player on the balcony added a special touch to the evening and the old style bar was amazing to... More

We had terrible service and even worse food. Been going here for over 15 years and will never go back. Two us had food poisoning and one of us had almost half the serving size as usual and not near the quality we were used to. We were a group of three adults extremely disappointed. .. The service was very... More

This was not the way to hear about getting food poisoning from my restaurant. We take this topic of some getting sick seriously. I would like anyone suspect of getting food poisoning from my restaurant to call me or I health dept. as soon as they or some else could. This was the first time I heard about this. Had... More

Charming old building that has been tastefully restored. Salads are fresh and the halibut fish and chips are some of the best.

My friend and I stopped in for lunch while driving through The Dalles. Should have looked at menu prices before coming in - pricey! $29 for one order of fish and chips, a side salad, Diet Pepsi, and hot peppermint tea. Fish & Chips good, but not worth $19. Salad nothing special - greens and exactly one carrot stick, one... More

A quant and rustic building made of brick walls and wooden booths housed a menagerie of paintings accompanied by jazzy music provided excellent shelter from the cold. My sister and I visited the establishment, ordering oyster shooters on the half shell as an appetizer, fish and chips with a salad, and fish tacos for lunch today. Service was prompt, polite,...

Great FRESH food. Nothing frozen? If they have ribs, try them. They are the best. Good service always.great atmosphere. Be sure to look at the hand carved antique bar and check out all the antique pictures on the wall. Desserts are to die for and you even get entertained by a wonderful old time piano player. In summer enjoy our... More
