“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

We had dinner at night and they were super fast. The waitress was very friendly. The food was pretty good too. We then had breakfast the next morning, unfortunately, the service didn't compare to the night before but the food was still very good.

Perfect family restaurant in The Dalles. Plenty of food options and very kid friendly. Our daughters loved the lemonade.

“Good homestyle cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

I have eaten here several times through the years on my way up or down the Columbia Gorge. It definitely isn't a chain restaurant atmosphere which is good. It is a bit quirky with it's "country" theme.
The staff is very friendly but service can be slow. The place is almost always very busy as well.

Prices are reasonable and the food is good to very good. I will guarantee you won't go home hungry as the portions are generous.

They are famous for their large cinnamon rolls which are excellent and their other desserts are pretty darn good also. Worth a stop if you are in the area and want to try something other than the usual suspects for your meal;.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Food was pretty average. Service was horrible. The waiter forgot to put our order in, offered us bread as if that were compensation. We didn't even leave a tip which is unusual for us.

“Quirky place with home-cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

It was a fine line between a three- and four-star rating, but I went with a four because it's a fun atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The food isn't anything special. I had the prime rib, but it's hard to beat mom's cooking. Dessert was where they really fell short. While the dessert (brownie with ice cream) looked good, the brownie was hard as a rock! Bummer. This is where you lose a sweet-tooth like me. This isn't my top choice restaurant, but it's a fun stop if you're on your way through town. Maybe just save your dessert dollars for elsewhere.
