Most of the food is good, but very expensive. The decor on the other hand needs work. Even though this is one of the more higher end restaurants in The Dalles, I prefer not to take my wife here for a great evening due to the condition of the interior and exterior.

Don't let the outside scare you off. Inside you will find a refined, clean, old-school supper club. The food was great, the staff and patrons were welcoming and friendly. Good service and good beer selection.

This place does not look like a dining establishment from the road. It is very down-trodden and the parking lot is full of ruts. It is very easy to drive by and not give it a second thought. Once inside, it tries to be a fine dining establishment with subdued lighting and accents, but it does not quite pull it... More

We didn't really know what to expect as from the outside it can be deceptive! But inside is a lovely restaurant with very friendly staff and delicious food. The decor is maybe slightly dated and they may need to up the lighting slightly, but that aside we had a wonderful evening and can recommend it.

Reccomended by the local motel. Very attentive staff. The inside decor was great as the 50's 60's or 70's go. Great music. Do not let the outside of the building keep you from going it!

Serve was great, but had to send my steak back. They did so with courtesy, though. The fresh bread and wonderful salad and baked potato were yummy

Don't let the outside fool you. The food and staff are great. We had been traveling all day on our way to Portland. A great stop for the weary traveler.

Went last night for my Birthday Dinner and had the Blackened Halibut. The food was excellent and because of my BD, we got the Ice cream Potato. Service was great, this place is a place you need to visit, you wouldn't think by the exterior but it is.

I would give it a higher rating but we had a some mishap with our order. We were there for a drink and ordered stuffed mushrooms that got dropped on the floor so they had to make another order which was fine but it took like 40 minutes....Way too long but they were delish...

I have eaten here many times and always had a great meal. It seems to me like an old roadhouse diner. They have a bar and a separate dining area. I have a prime rib dinner which was excellence my wife did as well. It came with soup or salad. Dinner rolls I had a baked potato. Good place to... More
