“Really Good Food - Appetites will be Satisfied!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Husband and I ate here for lunch on a Friday afternoon from out of state. Started with a great microbrew, amazing cup of Clam Chowder , and a small spinach salad (which was fabulous with the pears and pecans!)
Hubby had burger and yummy fresh cut fries (huge burger). I had half a BLT that waiter graciously agreed to do for me!! Usually they don't do halves of the BLT! Then we finished with the berry cobbler with Tillamook Vanilla bean ice cream! Yum! You can't go wrong here!! Appetites will be satisfied!!

“AWESOME FOOD & SERVICE - WE WILL RETURN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We went to this restaurant based on reviews on tripadvisor.
We are so glad we did. It looks more like a tavern, but the food and service were excellent. From being seated/greeted to the final thanks/farewells, we had a wonderful dining experience. The place felt much more like a restaurant than a tavern.
We ordered a meatloaf sandwich, turkey sandwich, and a burger. We all were so delighted with the flavor and the size. We were totally satisfied.
I highly recommend this restaurant. We will return here every time we are in Hood River!

“Don't let the dive look fool you, the food is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

My wife chose this place after reading about it somewhere. But when you drive up to it, it looks like a dive with old wood tables and a bar and TV. My father-in-law was a little bit nervous when we sat down, but after our food came, we were all very impressed with this little place. The clam chowder was super good, and I've tried about a hundred of them since I've moved to Oregon and this was the first one that wasn't all gooey and mass-produced. It was very tasty with really good spices. All of the food we had was awesome, no complaints. They had a pretty decent selection on their menu, too, with a small menu for kids as well. So give it a try, you will like it! I will definitely be back there when I go out to the Hood.

“A really good place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We tried this restaurant due to the reviews on TA. Again the reveiws were spot on! At first it did not look promising but don't let that put you off. The food is GREAT! We think they should post a warning on the door "CAUTION, portions are ample" We could of gotten by with half of what we ordered, they do not know the meaning of "small", We had a small greek salad, it would of been called a large anyplace else. The tuna fish and chips is wonderful, the mac and cheese is great. The Capresie skewer is a great start, very fresh and light way start to a meal. The fries are fresh cut, hard to find these days. Oh, and the prices are very good. The Trillium should be a must stop for any one in Hood River, or passing with 50 miles of town.

“Spectacular Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Was planning on eating at a nearby popular brew pub but they were packed and had a very long wait, so we wandered by Trillium Cafe and decided to give it a try. And I am glad we did. Small place with excellent food and brews. I had the tuna fish and chips and it was the best! My buddy had a burger and he said it was great as well. The bartender did a great job of serving us despite being busy at the bar. The young cook in back was cooking up a storm and it appears he knows his stuff. Try this place...you will not be disappointed!
