Had a very nice dinner: Warm family atmosphere, friendly service, fresh food, and good portions. We had a juicy hamburger with very nice, crispy fries and a big, fresh salad for $18.

Another fabulous recommendation from fellow travelers on TripAdvisor! After a 12+ hour drive in Eastern Oregon heat pulling into the Snaffle Bit Dinner House was quite a god-sent. This is a quirky little dinner restaurant in John Day that serves the best dinner! There is...More
