Looking for a nosh after a hike up in the hills and wandered onto this shack. I'll admit we were attracted to the nondescript exterior of this sprawling, old-school building -mostly cause it looked like it had character. Our hunch was right. The vibe up in the front room felt overly stuffy and claustrophobic, but the back bar was like... More

We were liking for a place to stop when riding motorcycle from bend to Portland. By luck we stop here. Not fancy, went to bar. Wow, fantastic fish and chips! Real meaty halibut. Not greasy or heavy battled. Very perfectly done fries, and great ale on tap. Will stop again

Service-- The waitress was top notch, very friendly and very prompt. (Check). Location-- You just can't beat a stop... More

My husband and I were up before dawn to photograph and enjoy sunrise on Lake Trillium. We we chilled, grungy and hungry. We each ordered an enormous breakfast and hot coffee, and were cured. Their hash browns were so good - super crispy outside and moist inside. I had something like biscuits and gravy, but with eggs and sausage also.... More

My wife and I were staying locally and decided to have some lunch before we went exploring. We pulled in to the Barlow Trail Roadhouse.We are both senior citizens and frequently request that an order be split between us, as it was with a Prime Rib French Dip sandwich. One side of potato salad came with the sandwich, and we... More

We love this place. They have the best Chicken Fried Steak ever. We order one and take half home every time it is that big. The hash browns are awesome too. The service is always great. Great atmosphere too.

The decor was very interesting and adjacent to the restaurant is the bar. Proves to be a very unique set up. Food was average but it was an enjoyable stop.

After a long day of travel from the midwest to Oregon, we crashed at the Barlow Trail Roadhouse. My wife and I both had the halibut fish and chips. My wife had a salad instead of fries. The fish was large chunks of flakey halibut which was battered well. The salad was fine. Our only complaint was the grease the... More

We have been here several time for both dinner and breakfast. I think they have the best breakfast on the mountain. Love the chicken dinner and the bartender knows her stuff. Stop by, have a bite, drink and play some pool. :)

We stopped in here because they had a live band playing. We stayed longer than we thought we would because it was so much fun and they had a fire pit to sit around to enjoy our glasses of wine! The music stopped pretty early because of the noise ordinance curfew but was a nice place to hang out and... More
