“Appetizers and Drinks Are Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a former train station that was actually moved from another location in Corvallis! Despite the size, the arrangement of furniture makes the place cozy and inviting.

We came here with our son-in-law for drinks and appetizers--this is one of our kids' favorite places in Corvallis, where they both are graduate students--and the atmosphere and the food are both very good. We shared hummus and pita as well as a cheese platter, which were perfect snacks to tide us over before we met up with our daughter for dinner. While I just had diet soda, my companions praised the cocktails and the white wine. Friendly, helpful waitstaff, too. We will try this restaurant for dinner the next time we visit.

“Nice and friendly with a good menu selection.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

My husband and I go here often. Prices are very reasonable. Terminus offers a couple different pizzas that I like very much. And the fries here are the best I've eaten anywhere. They are wonderfully crisp. The wait and bar staffs are excellent. Only comment: the decor is a bit lacking and sterile. But we keep going back.

“Super food with a nice view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Located in an old train station (which was moved to this site), this restraurant features well prepared food using excellent recipes. We went back for a second dinner we liked it so much. There are nice views over some lawns towards the river. One can sit outside if the weather is nice and one wants to. I had a steak one night and salmon the other night; both were excellent. Some of the dishes were less usual. I was with a family group, and everyone including the children liked what they had. The choclate moose was extremely good.

A great place for great food - and very nice view on the river. Service was very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for price, and very interesting variety of seafood, meat and fish.
