We had lunch and dinner here. Both were really good. Dinner was great with Chef Rick visiting tables and chatting with diners. He answered any questions you might have. I had the Pork Osso Bucco, my first, and it melted in my mouth. It was very flavorful with the perfect amount of seasonings. The salad bar is huge. We also... More

Wonderful views, incredible quiet for so many people being there. Good hiking rails. Don't go to the restaurant, however. Big disappointment. Food undercooked and definitely underwhelming. Had to send my steak back and it was returned in the same, sorry raw condition. Staff were friendly and kind. Unexpected charges: If you are in a cabin and want clean towels, that... More

We were staying at Gastons and had to try the restaurant, I see the specials posted all the time and it always looks delicious. Great room overlooking the river and hundreds of cool old tools and outboard motors hanging everywhere! We had the Prime Rib and it was perfection, potato cooked just right and a amazing salad boat! You can't... More

Great restaurant and Clint has busted his tail to keep the Gaston's legacy in tact after JIm's passing. We had lunch there on a Sunday drive and the restaurant was wonderful Food was good! The only hiccup we have is the waitresses are not what expected or substandard. Service was alright. The table next to ours was getting directions and... More

I wrote a great review in 2013, however, unfortunately had a few "less than perfect" after that, so I stopped going to Gaston's for meals. I heard that they have new cooks so I decided to give it another chance and I am so glad I did! The food is back to top quality and, best of all, they lowered... More

We ate at about 3 pm, was a little concerned at first cause it took a while to get our water poured after we had been seated. Once our waitress, Debbie, came she was super. The food was also very good. The desserts are awesome. My sister had the fried rainbow trout, which area is known for, she said it... More
