We had never been to Brian's before and just dropped in on a whim. The atmosphere in the back is semi-intimate with nice views. They have a very good wine list. Like many Hood River restaurants they offer a variety of small plates. You can easily make a decent meal for two of you by choosing the appropriate small plates or hors d'oeuvres. The staff is very attentive and courteous. A lot of Hood River restaurants do their own rendition of calamari. Brian's is no exception. Make sure to ask at whatever establishment you are at if the calamari is battered and fried, and then research further to see if it is lightly fried or deep fried. Brian's is deep fried. Still palatable but not optimal. We heard a number of people talk about their signature brussel sprouts. We did not have them but heard rave reviews. Might be worth a try.
