Saw this here on TripAdvisor and thought I’d give it a shot. Was not disappointed. Very local place and definitely like stepping back in time. Sitting right along the Columbia River is a great view while eating. The halibut is great, but the best was...More

It's an anomaly; the food is average, but everybody thinks it's such a great place, partly because of the setting (gorgeous) and partly I (think) because, after all, they have Chicken 'n dumplins!

We go to Portland area often but have never had time to stop in to try the Chicken 'n Dumplins. It was well worth it. The servings are HUGE! We could have easily shared on order and still had some left over.
