This place was phenomenal! We stopped in after walking across the Bridge of the Gods, and I seriously had the veggie burger of my life here. I think it was quinoa-based. Delicious!! Nice seating inside. We were able to sit in a large booth by the windows with a gorgeous view of the Columbia River. Good value for sure! Would... More

I love diners and this one was great. Plenty of room and you can see the bridge and Columbia river while you eat. Food was fresh and tasty!

Spent the day hiking and were tired and hungry so we stopped here. It's a fast food type of restaurant where you order your food at the counter then they bring it to you. You get your own flatware and drink. The food was good but not great. It's what one wold expect from fast food. It did arrive quickly.... More

What a great little family style eatery! We enjoyed everything about our breakfast selection Pacific Crest omelet with extra side of toast and bacon. Plenty for two senior appetites to share. Omelet, 8 grain toast, hash browns; all prepared just right. The only thing that could possibly be improved upon is being able to order from table rather than counter.... More

This place has been serving Charburgers for at least 60 years...1/3 # of pure old-fashioned charbroiled hamburger goodness in a spectacular setting over looking the Colombia River and the steel truss cantilever bridge that spans it. Eagles often fly past looking for salmon, while the Native Americans of the area have their fishing scaffolding permanently set up across the river.... More

We stayed at the hotel next store which included a free breakfast at this restaurant. There are only a few things on the menu that are included but there is something for everyone and the food and portions were really good. We enjoyed the view of the Bridge of the Gods and the River while we ate.

We had a nice lunch with family. Great service. Quick food. This place is nice and clean. We stop every time we are out this way. The burgers are a must. They also have a great salad bar. Nice little gift shop. Beautiful views too. The manager Ashley was so nice too.

There was a beautiful view from this restaurant! That is the best part about it. We had sandwiches and such - the food was fine. The view was the seller though - you can see Bridge of the Gods out the window and the river flowing by, of course. The people here were very sweet, too. And they serve Coke... More
