“Grand building! Mediocre food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great place to stop and see when traveling through. Food however is just okay. Clam chowder very good. Wife had a cheese buger "average". I had a beef and cheddar melt with a jus, noooo flavor at all!! Ate half the sandwich and drank the a jus. Waited for our bill as we watched the waitress eat her strawberry shortcake at a table a few feet away from us!! Finally got up and walked to the cash register to pay and leave. Been there done that. Won't need to return.

“A unique dining experience :-)”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

We have stopped at Camp 18 a few times over the years and today's visit was just like the rest. The service is efficient with a friendly waitstaff. The food is good basic American fare...this is not fine dining. Today's grilled tuna for me and chili burger for my husband were both delicious.

“rude waiter”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We stopped by for dinner on our way home from the coast. The place was fairly busy but the server was very offputting and rude. My husband ordered the club sandwich and bowl of soup. The waiter, while looking over the tops of his glasses, said "Do you have any idea how much food that is?" My husband said yeah, he orders clubs all the time. The waiter made a disapproving sound, took my order for ribs and stalked off. It just went downhill from there. The ribs (which the waiter had recommended) were below average. By the way - my hubby finished his sandwich and soup and had room to spare. We won't be back.

“Camp 18 Loggers Museum”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Be sure to check out the Camp 18 Loggers Museum/Memorial while visiting the area. The memorial building is filled with photos, plaques and memoribilia of loggers. There is a beautiful bronze sculpture of a logger falling a tree in the center of the museum. All around the grounds of the restaurant are pieces of old time logging equipment.

“Fun and Historic”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Camp 18 is a must-stop when traveling on highway 26, west of Portland. The combination of authentic timber history decor, homey restaurant, and friendly service is delightful. We enjoyed breakfast close to the warming stone fireplace. The owner gave us a personal tour of the building! Don't miss walking in back to see Humbug Creek and the topiary elephant.
