I was here waiting to board the Sternwheeler. There are some interesting statues near the cafe. And the Gift shop is nice. I didn't eat at the cafe as I had eaten earlier in the day. The patio out side was a nice place to relax and enjoy the great views of the landsacpe and the Sternwheeler coming into dock.

Since we were meeting the Landmarks of the Gorge Riverboat Cruise here at this restaurant, we did not have the chance to eat at the restaurant because breakfast, lunch, and dessert were all served on the cruise. But we were allowed to park free here to catch our cruise, which was very nice. Also, it has some wonderful statues outside... More

Worst fish n chips in history. The food they serve is not even at par with a Jack in the Box, do I need to say more? The fries were made of carton. They should stop selling food, they have no business in the food industry.

Of the river or the stern wheeler that loads next to the restaurant. Had Fish and Chips unremarkable and a turkey sandwich equally unremarkable. Average food at an above average price. Service kind of snarky, young girl should take a nap or get a new job, older lady very never. Beer in bottles and on tap.

We were just finishing our week of 'stay cation' and wanted to check out someplace we haven't eaten before. This is only a 30 minute drive from home and figured it would be a good place to check out. Glad we did because food was excellent , service great and a wonderful view.

Talk about lunch with a view, what a beautiful place. Fish 'n' Chips and a drink sitting outside on the terrace overlooking the lake, fantastic. Maybe not the best Fish 'n' Chips I have ever had but so what, it was all about the environment, scenery, and wildlife. We watched the paddle steamer come and go, the Canadian geese bobbing... More

Went in to grab two lattes on our way through. Took THIRTY minutes after ordering and I finally said something. Server walked over to "steam" milk (lukewarm) and pour into the shots she had made 10 minutes before hand. Handed to me without even an apology and I found one was only 3/4 full. Lousy!

The service was great, food was good, price was good but the best thing was the location. The outside seating is right on the Columbia River with the river boat leaving from this location. They also offer dinner cruises that are fair priced, which we really wanted to try, but didn't get time. My kids laughed at me all week... More

The food was quite average (fish and chips - over battered and a routine turkey sandwich) Good views from riverside patio seating area but note gusty wind
