“Fancy place, great food, affordable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Mario's is in the old Plush West building. It's beautiful inside with an intimate bar area and they just upgraded their menu. I went this week and had the cajun ribsteak smothered in mushrooms and garlic with a baked potato, soup and a popover - it was wonderful as always, i eat there often and never had a bad meal!

“So much food, so little time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

Four of us dined at Mario's Dinner House in Lakeview, OR last night. We started with a glass of 14 Hands Chardonnay in their intimate bar area, the hostess then seated us at a table in their dining room which is elegant and rustic at the same time with the brick walls and ambiance...
We started with an appetizer of tempura vegetables, moving on to caeser salads and cream of broccoli soup. I had the lemon chicken with a baked potato which was wonderful, crisp and the lemon sauce was perfect, not too overwhelming or tart. Two of my friends had the tempura shrimp and it was gone before I could say; "can I try one" (not because the servings were small but because they like it that much), my other friend had a NY steak charred on the outside and rare on the inside (she said no one but Mario can get that right) and it was smothered in roasted garlic. The bread was popover like, so light and fluffy. Needless to say we were too stuffed for dessert but it sure sounded good.

“Don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

We stayed in this small town and the hotel manager recommended Mario's Dinnerhouse. I must say we were shocked at how incredibly good their food was. They put Black Angus and most the chain restaurants to shame. If you are in the area and want a great meal try this wonderful little gem.

The dinner rolls are to die for. The food the people and just everything about it is amazing. Word of advice tho, if you're going to eat there on Friday or Saturday MAKE RESERVATIONS!!!
