We stopped at Mallard's Café & Pub while visiting Mt. Hood. We found it a little hard to find because it is located on the golf course of The Resort at the Mountain. It is located off East Welches Road, go past Fairway Avenue and turn left on East Estates Road. The address takes you to the resort...it isn't in the resort.
It was a beautiful day with a light breeze. We walked around to the back of the facility through lovely flowers and an old telephone booth...Superman did not appear however!
This place has a rustic charm and beautiful views of the golf course including a mountain view; virtually all the diners were outside, including us. The setting was beautiful, we could have sat there all day. Our table was closest to the course and we watched a couple of golfers teeing off in front of us.
Our server, Alyssa, was exceptional. She really got her exercise going back and forth to the restaurant! She was friendly and helpful. I ordered the grilled chicken on a croissant with avocado after being told they were out of crab for the crab club (this was the only negative). My husband ordered the BLT with hood fries (tossed in olive oil, parmesan and parsley). I chose the sweet potato fries to go with my sandwich.
While we were waiting, the general manager, John Erickson, came by and talked with us...very friendly! In fact everyone there was friendly, including the other diners, one diner came up and offered to take our picture for us!
When the food arrived I was blown away by the sweet potato fries! They were shoestring cut and had a crunchy outside with a soft delicious inside...the best I have ever eaten! Alyssa said that they are popular and they cook them in olive oil. My husband's hood fries were also delicious, but not as good as the sweet potato fries. I really can't comment on the sandwich, I think it was good but I was too focused on the fries!
Overall, a very good place...excellent atmosphere. It certainly helped that it was a perfect day too!
