Nice ambience, especially if your table has a view of the river. We had the best of both worlds with a "window" table with the patio windows/doors open; we felt the breeze and watched sailboats while we dined. Our party of five enjoyed their meals,...More

What a view--quiet, peaceful, beautiful river view while dining. Food is magnificent. Special Brussel sprouts appetizer. They make their own rum--dark spicy rum is better than the rum at the Bacardi Factory in Puerto Rico. Dining at McMenamins is a vacation for a few hours.

They don't take reservations, and we waited for almost two hours without them being able to sit us. They kept telling us that there is only one table where we could sit a group of eight and unless those folks leave, they can't fit us....More

Feels like a Mcmenamins location. Definitely a place that is on our list of places to come back too.

Tried this spot for the 3rd time; still unimpressed. First off, we sat at the bar while waiting for a waterside table. We 'sat' without any of the bartenders greeting us for 15 full minutes. They didn't even look at us. The bar was still...More

This McMenamin's was relaxing and the perfect spot to be refreshed after time spent walking along the river. SUPER satisfying fries with just the right combo of salt and grease and very accommodating staff. I completely enjoyed myself here. THANKS a bunch, McM's!!😚😚

I was in the area with my wife, who was participating in a regatta on Vancouver Lake. We were with a larger group of masters-level rowers, and staying a five-minute walk away. We went to McMenamins on a Friday night. Some of my reaction is...More

We went to have lunch outside overlooking the river. Waited for at LEAST 45 minutes - all the while, there were multiple tables sitting empty! The table bus persons were absolutely slower than molasses and meanwhile, people were standing in line waiting in 90 degree...More
