“An Oasis Off the Highway in Welches, Oregon”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We've driven by many times on our way to and from Portland. We FINALLY stopped. What a delightful find. This restaurant has been here for 19 years. We sat outside and you'd never know you were a few yards from the highway. There were a lot of locals as well as folks coming off the highway. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our server was very good. I had the House Made Black Bean Burger on toasted brioche bun with chipotle aioli, cheddar cheese, and salad. The presentation was lovely. The menu doesn't let you know about the avocado and yummy pickled red onions! Hubby had Wild Salmon Fish and Chips
served with remoulade sauce. The salmon was panko-coated and the potatoes were shoestring.
All of the desserts are made in house. We had the lemon pudding cake with fresh raspberries.
We will definitely make this a stop on our journeys.

“Best restaurant in Mt. Hood area”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

On our last evening after a 3.5 week road-trip through Oregon, we stopped at the Rendezvous Grill for dinner. I am so glad we chose this as our last meal in the state, because it was the best meal we have had during our trip! Nice relaxed atmosphere, I liked the fact that there was some time between the various courses. Normally in the US, meals seem such a hurried event, and this was nice and relaxing and not too slow at all. Just perfect. As was the food! We started with a lovely watermelon soup, with feta cheese and fresh mint. Very nice cold soup for hot summer evenings, very tastefull. The Wild northwest salmon we had after that, with fresh mixed seasonable vegetables was just perfectly cooked, and very, very tastefull. I won't saymuch about their desserts, suffice to say that they are all very yummy and all their specialties. They have an extensive wine list and at affordable prices. Portion sized were just right, not too large, not too small. Go there, you won't be disappointed!

“Great Spot”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We ate at Rendezvous twice during our stay in the Mt Hood area, the first was on a Saturday evening when they were quite busy. While the food was a little slow coming out, the service was attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding: grilled salmon was cooked to perfection and the beef tenderloin was very tender, tasty and cooked as requested. We returned on a Thursday evening when there were fewer customers, and experienced equally great service and food. This time we had an order of fried oysters, maybe the best I have ever tasted, and my wife had the pork chop and was extremely pleased.

“Consistently quality food”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Recently met up with some friends for grub on the mountain. Had a very good sandwich and thin & crispy fries. A little expensive but the best food I've had in Welches yet. Fresh ingredients with strong flavor profiles. Our friends have been coming here for years and they haven't been disappointed yet.

“An enjoyable place to eat”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We had a very enjoyable meal at the Rendezvous Grill on a recent trip to Portland. They have a very good menu and the service was excellent. We ate outdoors and enjoyed the ambience (you have to overlook a little traffic noise from the highway in the background). I definitely recommend Rendezvous Grill if you are looking for a place to eat in the Welches area.
