“Best BBQ in the area”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I've spent 2 full winters in the Mt. Hood area living in cabins. Whenever friends and family would come to visit I would take them to Skyway Bar and Grill. For several important reasons:

1) It's huge. indoor and out door seating, plus a huge couch by the fireplace.
2) the food is awesome, you can buy meat by the pound. 1 pound of pulled pork, enough said.
3) Beer, they have all the best local beers on tap
4) mixed drinks, they have their own special list, all good.
5) social life, the best place to have a few beers and kick back.
6) the staff is great. Had a few drinks with the owners one night, great people. Lots of fun

If you're driving back from Hood, stop and have a drink at the colorful place. You'll know it when you see it

“Gotta have the mac and cheese!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Great drinks, fun atmosphere...but you gotta have their mac & cheese! We are addicted and call it "crack mac"! You can even add other staples such as bacon, BBQ and salmon for more deliciousness!

“Great place for appetizers and drinks with fun outdoor atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We stopped for appetizers and drinks after a long day exploring the Columbia River Basin. Skyway was recommended by a local and now I'm recommending it as a traveler. From what I saw people order, the portions are large. Expect barbeque, fries, ... and the honey glazed chicken wings were quite good. (I never order chicken wings!) Suggest this as a fun place to listen to music and grab a bite to eat.

“Great BBQ in Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

Great place for dinner in Mt. Hood! The servers are friendly and the food is outstanding with LARGE portions at reasonable prices. We had the Reuben and cold pork sandwiches with a side of beans.....sooo good. Will visit next time in the area. Music nightly and a nice outside eating area.

“Go somewhere else if you want service!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

My husband read the reviews and so chose this place after one of our hikes in the area. We arrived here very hungry after a long hike in the mountains. We were told to choose between outdoor dining or indoor so we chose outdoors since it was cooler outside. We chose a picnic table near a band setting up and then waited for someone to bring us a menu. It never happened after 10 minutes so I finally went and found a waitress who told us that area was closed to customers. Never said one word to us about that when we chose outdoor seating. We then moved indoors and proceeded to wait once again for 5 minutes or more. About 5 tables filled with customers at around 4 PM is no excuse to ignore customers and chat it up with one another employees! You certainly were not busy. We left without having ever seen a menu or offered anything cold to drink. Skip this place unless you come in for lunch at 12:00 and they decide its your turn to be served much later---you might be eating your evening meal by then.
