We have been to the Outpost several times and each time the service, food, prices , atmosphere and staff have been excellent. It has the appearance of a lodge with wood furnishings and a fireplace for the winter. The lounge has a good selection of beer and you can also eat in the lounge. We recommend the Garden Pizza with draft beer!

The Outpost was recommended to us by a gas station attendant and we were happy for the good recommendation. We had typical burgers and BLTs but the service was great and the atmosphere was good. Prices were fair.

Not a lot was open Labor Day in John Day OR, but the Outpost more than met our needs. A restaurant one side, and lounge on the other, you can eat at either. The pesto pizza chicken pizza was really good with a pitcher of beer and the locals visiting. We did breakfast the next morning with nice, fluffy huckleberry pancakes. Worth the stop

We weren't too thrilled when ate at this restaurant on a previous stay in John Day, but a few days ago we ate here again and ordered differently--we shared a pizza and a salad. It was a very satisfying meal, and the service was pleasant and efficient.
