Description: Hood River's only waterfront restaurant is known for some of the best food in the Gorge, plus amazing Columbia River views from just about every table. Enjoy it all indoors in Riverside's recently remodeled dining room or on the expansive dining deck. Menus change seasonally, with fresh, locally-sourced, all-natural ingredients. An extensive award-winning wine list, a dozen brews on tap, and full bar offer the perfect complements for a relaxing meal. Riverside's menu is also served in Cebu lounge. Weekday happy hours at Cebu feature a special menu based on many of Riverside's specialties.

Had breakfast on the deck. Awesome view of the river. Not many people on a weekday morning so service was good. Excellent eggs benedict.

Recently had a casual dinner with my son here and we had a really nice experience. The view from the deck is spectacular, the food is awesome and the service was friendly and on the money. This is a place you must visit when you come to The Gorge as the pictures don't quite do it justice!

The Riverside restaurant is in the Best Western Hotel near the Hood River bridge. This really should be the place to go in Hood River - it has a great view and the food was really excellent. Hood River is the trendy little city in the heart of the Columbia Gorge. It comes complete with windsurfing, brew pubs, cute shops, parking problems, lines and a lot of noise at those trendy brew pubs, and if some cases really nasty hills and steps for those of us that are not quite in the shape we once were. Skip all that and go to the Riverside. It is easy to get to, flat, has adequate parking, accessible entrances and routes for those who need it, and has an absolutely stupendous view right on the river. The Riverside view is better than most because it is right on the river, not high above it and far away. Also, because the Riverside is less crowded than those pubs in town, you can actually carry on a conversation with your dining partner. We had lunch here and were lucky enough to catch a really nice day. We dined on the deck which was a little sheltered from both wind (they have a lot in Hood River) and the sun. This was a great place just for the view but the best surprise was the really excellent food! Absolutely we will dine here again. It's not a $5 lunch, but heck it's not a $5 view.

We had dinner on the deck overlooking the Columbia River and it was an excellent experience. Our food was served well-presented and at the proper temperature. Eggplant entree is excellent and is enough for two.
Choice of beer and wine is great, featuring favorites from local breweries and vineyards. Service was excellent, attentive but not annoying.
Good variety on the menu and all of our selections were very well prepared.
Would definitely return to this restaurant for breakfast or dinner.

This place has an excellent view and makes for a very pleasant dining experience. The food was very good and the price reasonable. My only complaint was slowness of service. Perhaps that is the intent, but we had just driven 700 miles and weren't' expecting a two hour dining experience, but don't let that deter you.
