Off the beaten path, this was a great find. Indoor and outdoor seating with a great little jazz band playing in the beer garden. Our waitress was helpful and friendly and offered a little history on the brewery. When we weren't sure what to order, she offered suggestions and brought several different samples. Picked a Sour Blueberry ale the was... More

There are lots of places to get pizza in the Gorge and this is a hidden gem! I think it rates at the top and I plan on coming back again and again and again. Try the Seahawk pizza!

Just something about this place. A true find off the beaten track. Good beers, great food. We were out in The Dalles for the day and jumped over to Carson on the way home. Spent the end of the afternoon or on the patio having pizza and tasty beers. How do you beat that?

This is a perfect break away from the week living in the woods. I came in this establishment after spending a week in the back country of Gifford Pinchot. It was great to sit back and enjoy a wonderfully crafted IPA while chewing on a gooey pretzel. This is a top 10 NW brewery. I been to the majority of... More

We stumbled upon this place while traveling and hiking. Excellent lunch--we ordered the smoked salmon dip appetizer (awesome) and a delicious salad. Restaurant opens to outside. Perfect lunch stop.

We ate there last night, sat outside with the dogs, after a day of bike riding, paddle boarding and wind surfing, and without a doubt this remains one of my favorite breweries and relaxing eatery. I love their Blueberry Wheat beer and my husband had the seasonal sour Blueberry which was also delicious. And the kids ended up with the... More

We had a group of 8 starving bicycle riders descend on the Backwoods after a 102 mile ride over the mountains. Our waitress didn't bat an eye when we asked to order food before beverages, we needed to eat. We all had a salad, there were almost enough different ones that we could have all had a different one, and... More

We were just looking for a place to eat, no great expectations for such a small town. But we forgot how trendy this place can be! Backwoods Brewing is a great spot for dinner. Even their Hummus Plate was fantastic! The beer is great too. Though I am not a big drinker I do like a good Pilsner. Carson is... More

We had a great dinner - nice, open-air place to relax and enjoy. The people watching was almost as much fun as the meal. Pizza was amazing and prices were fair. the men in our party got beer flights. They liked only 2 of the 12 beers tasted.

Thank Mary Ann P
