The breakfast fare was awesome, and the service was excellent. My sister and I chose to split the seasonal spinach omelette. My brother and his wife also chose to split breakfast with a pancake on the side (flavored with cinnamon). Everyone was very pleased with our dining experience. The dining room was very conducive to conversation. Coffee was served in... More

We started with pre- dinner drinks at the bar and found it friendly so we stayed for dinner. Their menu seemed focused on Cajun and New Orleans items so we gave them a try. Both of our entrees were tasty and enjoyable. Service was very good and provided a lot of information on the area. The following morning we had... More

We stayed in the Shiloh Inn and were allowed tickets for breakfast at the Portage Grill (attached to the hotel) giving three choices for breakfast meals. We used those during our stay and were very happy each day with what we ordered. The food comes out quickly, and it's hot and perfectly cooked. We tried, in addition to breakfast, the... More

We had a choice of three breakfasts to choose from and that included coffee, juice or milk. Waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Very nice way to begin the day.

Some may not think a view of a dam is interesting. As engineers, we loved it! The table was on an outdoor patio overlooking the dam and the water. We had catfish and fries and they were excellent! Great BIG slab of catfish with a spicy, tasty, seasoned coating. I haven't had any of their other dishes. The wait to... More

The courtesy breakfast for hotel guests was excellent, cooked in the restaurant and no make-your own-features. The evening menu was a mixed bag and I did wonder at the cajun emphasis in a northwest restaurant replete with local history. My choice of bourbon sauce steak was excellent as far as the steak went, but the rice (white and wild rice)... More

The pork medellians were dry and the gravy was still cold and jelled. We got 3 rolls for 4 people and could not get the waiter's attention for anything. We wanted water and got a glass when the bill was brought... not before. Bad service and food, I do not know how they stay in business!

We ate here while driving through on the way to Portland. The food was terrible and it was way overpriced. My sandwich was dry and salty, the restaraunt was dirty and in need of a renovation, and the service was bad.

Great food and a wonderful atmosphere. A little touch of the South right here at home.
