My daughter and I went to the Klondike Restaurant. We waited and waited for someone to notice we were there. We had reservations. We were about to leave when someone finally wandered out from the bar. We were seated near the bar, and watched the waitstaff congregate, gossip, and ignore the customers. When the food finally arrived, it was good, but not great. Twice, I had to point out a waiting customer to the server. No one was watching the door to see if people were waiting. While we waited for our food, I noticed that the lights were dusty. The floor was littered with garbage at our feet. The place needs a good scrubbing. Sadly, St. Helens has few good restaurants to eat at. The Klondike could be great if they educated the waitstaff on customer service and updated the interior. The history of the place is quite interesting.

If my famiy wants to go out to eat we always go to the Klondike. The prime Rib is the best I have ever had and the crab cakes are sooo delicious. It is a little spendy but it is a worth while treat. St. Helens has not alot of good dining options and the Klondike is one of the best. Have the prime rib, you will not be sorry. I have ate there a dozen times in the past year and have never had any complaints. DON'T SKIP DESSERT!! THEY ARE HEAVENLY! :)

We had the pleasure of eating at the Klondike restaurant this week with an old family friend. My husband and I both enjoyed a cup of clam chowder as our appetizer round, and the clams were absolutely melt in your mouth tender. For dinner I ordered the halibut and chips and my husband had the special of the night which was salmon and chips. Both were incredibly tasty... the fish was cooked perfectly for the both of us, although I did not care for their version of french fries as they were greasy and floppy.

When placing our dinner order, the waitress suggested two different dessert choices that are made from scratch. I ordered the deep dish chocolate chip cookie ala mode and my husband ordered the apple crisp... both of which must be ordered early because they take about 20 minutes to make. Let me tell you, both of those desserts are worth every single extra calorie and every minute they took to make! Don't skip dessert!!!

The one downside to the Klondike is the price. For three people the bill was over $70 which would definitely preclude making this a regular meal out if we lived in the area, but for a tasty meal while visiting from out of state, it was fine.

Food is mediocre at best. Not worth the cost. Wait staff is sometimes good, sometimes terrible.
