“High end casual, great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We've been here twice now, so I can say that the food and service is consistently excellent. It has a casual atmosphere by big-city standards, but upscale for Hood River. I have leaned toward the pasta dishes, which are fresh and imaginative, with a decent wine list to complement them. The seating can be a bit cozy and it gets quite busy in the evening, so probably not the place for a quiet dinner with private conversation...

“Pleasant Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Love that old house has been converted into restaurant, had fantastic view across river. Service was friendly & efficient.
If review was solely based on food then 3.5 stars. Two of us ordered the steak, it was extremely though. The accompanying fries were excellent, as was the garlic butter. My other friend ordered the veggie lasagna and really liked it. We had a wedge salad which I sent back because they had drowned it in dressing. Once they brought a new one it was good. My friends Caesar was good and the asparagus was cooked to perfection.
They have a lovely patio area that I look forward to returning to in the summer.

“Always delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We always eat here when we come to HR. The fish tacos are great and the wine list is extensive. We happened to be here when there was a big blazers game and had a great time with the locals at the bar.

“Perfect Date Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Spent Valentines in Hood River and had dinner at Brian's Pourhouse. It was wonderful. Cozy, candle light, great service and great food. Really a fun evening. Perfect place to take that special person in your life. Start with one of their excellent cocktails and finish with one of their amazing deserts. You won't be sorry.
