Wanted a nice dinner during a 450 mile trip and got hungry "in the middle of nowhere". Used Trip Advisor to find this restaurant at the edge of the Columbia River in Boardman Oregon. Fish tacos were amazing. Others are gluten and dairy-free.

This restaurant, conveniently located within the lodge, had a varied menu with more offerings than expected. Everything I had was tasty, but I especially enjoyed the Buffalo Shrimp which were delicious. Service was prompt and courteous. Overall, it was a good value.

Loved our breakfast at the River Grill! the Sweet Sunrise French toast was so delicious - much better than any other French toast I've ever had. Also, it was served with orange marmalade butter - yummy! Also, served with warm maple syrup. I hate ordering...More

Was quite pleased to find this little gem of a property on our recent trip to Boardman. It's a great alternative if you aren't up for fast food or mexican food. The setting on the river was fantastic! Wished we'd known about this lodge before...More
