Stopped for dinner, hostess was ok. We always prefer a table, not a booth and hostess was pushy about seating us in a booth. I finally just went and sat in one. Food was ok. I usually order shrimp and chips but always seem to be out.

Thank for sharing your feedback! We feel terribly we didn't seat you where you preferred to be. Please let the hostess know if you have a preference and we'll happily oblige when we have availability. We hope we'll have the chance to make it up to you; with Shrimp and Chips too! Thank you again for your being our guest,... More

I had been the Cousin's about 10 years ago, so on a business trip to The Dalles, I suggested we go here. It's a wonderful country environment, with friendly servers and good Homestyle comfort food. I had a late breakfast of French toast which was very good, and my coworker had a club sandwich which she seemed to enjoy. The... More

Stopped in last week on a Monday, wait staff were nice. We've stop in before and our meals were hot and tasty. Not this time, it seemed to take a long time to get our food. Only three other couples in the dining room. When my chicken sandwich arrived the fries were cold and the chicken barely warm. Didn't say... More

Oh no! While we are delighted to hear about your coffee and pie, we feel terribly about your entrees. Though we are usually a well organized operation, as you've experienced on prior visits; it seems our timing was off last Monday. We are simply so sorry about this.

We went for a quiet dinner after a long difficult drive. We were greeted very pleasantly and then taken care of by our server Dolores - she was helpful, VERY pleasant and efficient. We were just looking for a light meal so we ended up with one of the best plates of Nachos we've ever had, a very tasty salad... More

Lots of comfort food and if you are a bacon lover I think you will enjoy this restaurant. Well kept, older, restaurant with friendly service, good food and good prices. We sampled their Soup, Steak, French Dip, Salad, Bacon and Eggs and Pie and we were not disappointed at any meal. The restaurant has a railroad and farm theme and... More

Not a lot to chose from in The Dallas but that is not a problem if you like home cooking. Had dinner and drinks here 3 nights in a row and would be back for fourth if I wasn't leaving town. Chicken Pot Pie and the Pot Roast are great but the friendly attentive service even better. If I ever... More
