This review is for 130 Bar and Grill (the sign is in Roman Numerals - it reads "CXXX")
We arrived around 7pm, on the first somewhat warm and pleasant Saturday of the year. CXXX has a large outdoor patio overlooking the Columbia River, which is where we chose to be seated. The patio seats about 40 people perhaps - I think about 35 were already seated when we arrived. Although it was still a bit on the cool side, the plexiglass walls held off most of the wind. If you are unaware, Stevenson, Washington - actually the entire region, is known for its terrific winds. That probably explains why the river is covered with wind surfers of all sorts, especially this time of year. Anyway, back to the story; err, review...
We were seated with a welcoming smile. Good start. Our experience only improved as the evening progressed. The wait staff is knowledgeable and engaging. They also don't seem to require notepads. Maybe they would for a larger party... 130 has a pretty good selection of local wines available. Excellent salads, well-seasoned steaks, crispy, cooked-through grilled vegetables. We didn't try any desserts although they were awfully tempting.
All in all it was a great dinner, an enjoyable experience. We'll be back. My only other recommendation is, don't go there expecting to get in and out quickly. Take your time, enjoy the view. You might find yourself frustrated if you are in a hurry.
