When our original choice of evening meal in Cascade Locks, OR, closed early, our hotelier recommended the Big River Grill, across the Columbia River in nearby Stevenson, WA. Wife had the salmon; I, the fish and chips. Food was served quickly and hot. Best thing was the 11.0% triple malted Pale Ale. Only needed 10 oz.--great taste if you are... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Everything is good! It's a cozy, warm environment with an eclectic décor. It never disappoints.

Been going here for years. Really like the food, Great salads and burgers. Last few times it has been wayyyyyy slow in getting the food but we are never in a hurry so is ok but would be better if a bit faster. NW salad with the smoked salmon is my all time favorite! used to be called Justins Salad... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we tried the Big River Grill while visiting the Columbia River gorge, The reviews are correct. This is an excellent place to eat handcrafted, quality food. We started with the sturgeon spread as an appetizer. It is more of an antipasto which included the complex-flavored smoked fish spread, olives, carrots and French bread slices. We continued... More

Friendly service with good basic food and a delicious Bloody Mary! We were heading up to Bonneville Hot Springs and needed a place for lunch before checking in and were very pleased with Big River Grill. A nice mix of regulars and travelers with a variety of bar offerings as well. Would certainly stop again when in the area.

We visited the grill twice while staying in Stevenson on our recent travels. The place has pleasant decor and the service was good from the friendly staff. We had the fish and chips the first time and then the salmon alfredo both times with some nice cask ale. The food we thought was quite pricy, but was of good quality... More

This a great place to go to when you visit Stevenson Washington. They serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner too! I've ate here many times and have never been disappointed. Last time I ate here, I had the Half Roasted Chicken, which was excellent. They have a wide variety of beer too! The hamburgers are great.

We stopped in for dinner on our way back to Portland and had some great seafood. I ordered the meatloaf as my main dish and was disappointed. They used some very heavy spices that made the meatloaf sweet and I wanted a savory meatloaf. However, the crab cakes on the apps was FANTASTIC and perfectly seasoned and breaded. The prime... More

The food was what you'd expect for a pub, I ordered the salmon salad which wasn't bad, my husband had a burger that filled his belly. We tried the salmon chowder, which was a bit thin, and the bread was all the standard Cisco style white french loaf. It will serve as a meal but not something to write home... More
