This is a great country cafe in downtown The Dalles. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable and the food was excellent. We ate in the bar where it was quiet and on Thursdays they have an appetizer bar with fish tacos, it was great. We will stop there again.

Restaurant has lots of "kitsch" and if you are familiar with the Cracker Barrel, you'll be hard pressed to not compare this place to that. Had potential as there were a lot of people there for Saturday dinner. The menu is quite large, which always means to me that the food may not be good due to the variety of... More

I was traveling through The Dalles when someone mentioned that Cousin's was offering free menu items for military veterans this veteran's day. I made my way there and was pleasantly surprised at the restaurant itself, the friendly staff, and the delicious food! If you're ever in the Columbia Gorge area and are looking for some good home cooked style meals... More

Since we arrived rather late after wine tasting in the Hood River area, there really wasn't much open. So we walked 2 blocks from our hotel to the restaurant. The food was good and service excellent, but I found it annoying to constantly being called "cousin". Our waiter was fantastic,,,, I thought he was an "Undercover Boss", but the cashier... More

Cousins is listed as Restaurant that has a # of gluten free choices listed on the menu but the one I chose failed! It was a special soup and cornbread; I questioned the cornbread and after checking with the cook, took it back. After eating the soup (tastes fine) I had a reaction (I have Celiac disease) that night/next day.

The items we offer as Gluten Free are made with entirely Gluten Free ingredients, but we cannot guarantee against cross contamination within the structure of our kitchen, as our menu states.

We were seated at a table within 2 minutes of our arrival. The waitress was friendly and chatty. The dinner salads are of large portion size as well as fresh and good. The entrees were served fresh and hot! We will be happy to come again sometime! (Be sure to get your card punched for a free meal after purchasing... More

We had been here years ago and had horrible slow service so thought we would give it another chance... The food was okay except they put egg on my salad when requesting it to be held. Not sure if I would go back. If so, I definately need to feel patience...

Nice experience, wait-staff were friendly and very nice... gave us an "extra-big" piece of sample cinnamon bun, stayed attentive. Price was ok, food was ok.
