Nice little pub. Friendly staff. Don't forget to ask for the $5.00 cab ride any place in town if you over do it with the beer. It's a great deal!

Had dinner and some micros at Rivertap last weekend. It is a newer microbrewery in a modern, warehouse-style building. The waitress was very nice even after I spilled my entire first beer all over the table and floor. She replaced it at no charge. I had the Mac n Cheese with bacon and jalapenos in a very cheesy sauce. It... More

Really the consistently best and hippest place in The Dalles. Love the outdoor patio, fun funky vibe, great music, unique and interesting food that tastes great. Excellent service, even when busy.

A friend and I were recently road tripping. We spotted this little bar/restaurant and decided to check it out after we walked around the historic downtown area. It was a Monday and when we came back by there were still people outside, but the waitress informed us they were slow so they were closing. We were bummed and told her... More

We stopped here for lunch while driving to walla walla, the staff was friendly, the food was good and it was a good portion for lunch. The wine was so so, it does get busy here with locals, expect to wait a little, but it's worth it for sure if you are in the area

I took my husband out for his birthday and invited several friends to surprise him. It took about 40 minutes for the waitress to take our food order even though it didn't seem very crowded. Then our food sat under the heat lamp in the pass through window for at least 20 minutes and that was after we waited a... More
