We stopped here after reading reviews and were not disappointed service was good and the food lovely, the pancakes were so light and fluffy everything was freshly cooked and hot well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The pancakes and sausage patty were excellent per my husband. The hamburger steak with eggs and hash browns was the BEST that I have ever eaten-think they called it cardiac arrest.......Fresh hamburger meat, not pre-made and super, super delicious....huge, fresh and flavored wonderfully....hash browns just...More

Driving through town decided to try this place. First impression not great. Clientele at bar looked a little sketchy. But staff was friendly enough. Minors allowed in the back. Sat at the counter and watched our lunch being made. Decent food, large portions, VERY reasonable....More

We stopped in for a soda as we were half hour early to an appointment and say there for OVER ten minutes without a word. No service no service no hello. There was two customers there. We finally walked out. Will NOT return!

This is both a saloon, restaurant and a very fabulous breakfast spot. The walls are lined with the Cowboy winner of the Pendleton roundup for the last 106 years and other memorabilia.

This place is by far a favorite. I usually order their homemade soup--the best anywhere. Everything about this restaurant--Pendleton roundup pictures, the old fashioned look-- will take you back to an earlier time; and for the older crowd it will surely bring back some memories.

Always a good breakfast, ham steak is good and the Bloody Mary is the cure, we enjoy the locals. Must stop.

Hi. To answer your question, yes they can. Kids can dine in the Rainbow anywhere past the pool tables until 4:30 PM. I hope this helps.
