From the outside, the place looks doubltful; not sure we would have gone on our
own, but we were with our group and they had been told it was a good place to
go. Liked the service, atmosphere, food, prices - nice roadhouse. Did not dislike
anything.

Our meal was served very cold. Prime Rib was cold, stuffed prawns were so cold that the cheese was hard. Soup was thick and cold like a concentrate. Vegies had no flavor and were clearly microwaved. On a positive note, the service was great. We were greeted at the door and seated immediately even though we didn't have reservations. Our waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. The restaurant was clean and had recently been updated on the inside. Very disappointing and expensive dining experience.

Although the building doesn't look that inviting, the food is.... Jay and MaryKay Kane do a wonderful job at the restraurant... Great drinks at the bar or in your booth... Try Marykays Teriyaki to accompany your steak... Great prime rib on weekends... By the way, they make their own bread and it is to die for.... Just a great place to stop...

we haven't eaten in here in years. It still looks the same only little shabbier on the outside. The inside has been spruced up inside.I like the big overstuffed chairs and large family style table. There are also still the booths ,but they look much nicer now. The bar is pretty. Our waitress was very thourough and attentive. The food was suprisingly very good. You get large portions and the bread is soo good. My husband had a steak & our friend had prime rib,I had chicken parmesean . We were all very happy with our meals & needed doggy bags. I was very pleasantly surprised with experience.

We've considered this our 'special occasion' restaurant for several years and now we aren't sure that we'll return. While the pasta dishes were hot and almost good, the steaks were lukewarm and overcooked. The stuffed mushrooms weren't stuffed, the baked potato that our vegetarian had as an entree was minute and tired, and the server was totally ineffectual. Like other special places in the gorge over the last few years, the Hiway House just isn't special anymore.
