This is such a great place to go on a sunny day. Sitting outside is best. It is a little crowded, but worth it to be so close to the river. The menu is a bit limited but I have enjoyed everything I have ordered....More

Unique floating location on the Columbia River at the Port of Camas/Washougal with views of Mt Hood. Gets very busy on the sunny days, best time to avoid a wait list is on the rainy days. Open year round, closed on major holidays.
