Sitting outside by the river on a sunny day. Cant get much better than this for laid back..
The waitress was very friendly as was the bartender and other staff.. Very welcoming and casual.. The wait for the outside table was not bad at all..

Drinks and appetizers is all we had.

Flew into Portland Airport, asked rental car person for a good place to eat. She recommended Beaches just across the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington. Quick trip on I-205 N cross into Washington, then take 14 West - best to use Google, MapQuest, Garmin, etc as you go under highway 14, several turns, sort of a combo of industrial and condos / restaurants / bar area.
Ask for outdoor seating. It was happy hour and the inside was packed and noisy. Outside, beautiful quiet view of Columbia River. We watched motor boats, a barge, sail boats and jet skis go past. The sort of place you can sit at all day long.
Food was excellent. My wife had the salmon (not the one over mac&cheese). She said it was the best she's had outside Alaska fresh caught. I had chicken breasts with mango salsa and macadamia nuts. It too was excellent.
TIP - save room for dessert. They have "smoores" made in a small cast iron skillet that they heat to order, and you eat out of the skillet.
Very hard to leave our outside table to head off for the freeway into Portland.
Highly recommended for anyone flying into Portland that has a bit of time to grab a great meal and enjoy an awesome view.

Beaches has always been one of our families favorite until our last visit, The services and food was off. Not what it has been in the past. The location is one of the best in Vancouver. We will most likely go back with hopes it was just an off night.

Beaches has some of the best views of the water from the patio and inside as they have large windows. Good vibe, good food and good service. The only negative is its very loud. Not the place for a romantic dinner, more a happy hour place.

Good food, great value and reasonable options in terms of dishes. Appetizers were very good. Although the food was really good it was the service that stood out. Staff were very friendly, attentive and definitely engaged. Very willing to accommodate requests and there was no waiting. Was greeted arriving and told thanks for coming. Extremely gracious and upbeat atmosphere.
