We had dinner at Hi Way House when we passed through The Dalles in early June 2017, based on favorable reviews on another review site. Although the parking lot is small, we had no problem getting a parking place (it was getting late). The building...More

I have been hearing about this place for quite some time and have been wanting to try it out. I finally got a chance to go for my birthday last week. You pull up to the outside and it is a green nondescript building. Nothing...More

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...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...More
