We had skipped lunch in our travels so my husband and I were in need of some substantial food. We came across The Mesquitery in Hood River after driving in from Portland. We both chose the 14 oz Ribeye and baked potato. The steaks were perfectly grilled and fabulous! The only thing lacking was some type of bread-dinner roll or something. However the quality of the steak quickly made us forget the lack of bread. Then ... We decided to share a dessert. So many great choices. We chose something neither of us had had before- Swedish Crem with warm loganberry sauce. OMG ... An experience beyond words. I immediately started looking for a recipe so we could duplicate this great dessert! Wait staff ... Very attentive and took great care us. If we ever return to this area we will definitely make a return visit.

My friend and I each ordered the steak arrachera. Her piece was smaller than mine, so before they brought it out, the waiter (owner?) asked if they could supplement her dinner with some shrimp. These weren't little bay shrimp, they were eight large, grilled prawns, equally as delicious as the steak! My friend also ordered a side of fettucini Alfredo, and it was such a large portion that she couldn't finish it all. We also each ordered a side of vegetable, which was fresh broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower, Yum! For dessert, I ordered the Italian creme, which was covered in a berry sauce and SO delicious! Be sure to seek out this restaurant the next time you are in Hood River!

NO SEPARATE CHECKS PLEASE
GROUPS OF 6 OR MORE, 17% GRATUITY WILL BE ADDED (on website and menu)
Once Gratuity is decided ahead of time the service standards are dropped and your table gets minimum attention while servers focus on the tables that have not decided how much is appropiate. I'm very generous to servers having waited tables for years myself. Very dissapointed on this visit when the gratuity is set the server stops trying to earn it.
As far as separate checks, current technology allows for easily presenting separate checks to groups of two, why not three groups of two sitting at one table?

We used to eat there weekly but had skipped them for 5 years due to being cheated on our credit card. Same old stale menu. Nothing new or fresh.

Got terribly sick from VERY undercooked food. Raw slimy chicken and salmon. Mash potatoes were cold. NO ONE came back to check on the food. We used to eat there weekly but had skipped them for 5 years due to being cheated on our credit card. Suggested you find another place to eat there are many excellent places in Hood River.

We finally went here after years of passing by it and were not disappointed. We got the Fisco Burger to go and had a beer while we waited, and everyone that we came in contact with were very nice and friendly. The beer was cold and the burger was great, in fact we went back again the next week. This has become one of our favorite local restaurants and will take out of town guests here when they visit.
