Hood River beckons travelers with the scent of orchard blooms and the promise of adventure on the rushing waters of the Columbia River. The winds through the Columbia River Gorge provide the perfect conditions for windsurfing and kite surfing, making the city a hotspot for those sports in recent years. The surrounding area is ripe with orchards growing cherries, apples, peaches and other sweets. Take the Mt. Hood Scenic Railroad through the orchard route and take in the views of Mt. Hood.

The crab benedict. Yowza. Lots of crab, well cooked eggs. Hollandaise could have used a bit more lemon. Hubby got the biscuits and gravy. Gravy rocked. Lots of sausage, tons of flavor. The place is hopping. Baked goods looked fantastic. Good service, menu, pricing.

This place is a great place to start your day in the Columbia Gorge. Breakfast sandwiches are $6-7 and regular coffee is good and bottomless if eating on the premises. The service is great, and the open air atmosphere is welcoming.

Hood River's only waterfront restaurant is known for some of the best food in the Gorge, plus amazing Columbia River views from just about every table. Enjoy it all indoors in Riverside's recently remodeled dining room or on the expansive dining deck. Menus change seasonally, with fresh, locally-sourced, all-natural ingredients. An extensive award-winning wine list, a dozen brews on tap, and full bar offer the perfect complements for a relaxing meal. Riverside's menu is also served in Cebu lounge. Weekday happy hours at Cebu feature a special menu based on many of Riverside's specialties.
Ordered the Smoked Salmon Penne. The ingredients list did not include onions. Yet, the dish came with plenty of them. This basically means the kitchen does what they think is best. Putting in ingredients that are not on the list is VERY dangerous
They drop in something that a guest may be allergic to could end up fatal. Basically, the kitchen is out of control. Absolutely inexcusable. Microwaved smoked salmon meat wasn't impressive at all. The view is great and the restaurant cleanliness was supreme.

Wood fired & Gorge-inspired! Featuring an imported Italian wood fire oven, the cafe specializes in rustic and inventive pizzas made from scratch with local ingredients. We also serve seasonal chef's entrees, fresh pasta. We served culinary-inspired cocktails, 11 rotating local microbrews, ciders and house wine on tap. Heated patio seating and kid's play area too! Across from the Hood River Waterfront Park!
We happened upon this pizzeria while spending one night in Hood River, and are glad we did! They were packed with people waiting outside. Pizza was delicious! Service a bit slow though.

We love to come here for breakfast or lunch regularly...food is always great....and the team is very friendly while taking care of hungry people. Locals and tourists come here alike... and they definitely have had a phenomenal meal. I love the Florentine Benedict with hash browns. Ken often picks their ham and cheese omelet... but we both explore other areas of their yummy menu offerings.

We had a 10 person gathering which had an excellent seating arrangement. The staff was super attentive without being pushy. Th back of the house was also very accommodating and let us get a little creative with our orders.
Food, service and overall experience was outstanding!

Stopped for lunch while traveling through. Hood River had many great restaurants and we’d not been here. Glad we stopped. My tuna melt on fresh hot best-ever ciabatta (crusty on the outside fresh and soft inside), lots of yummy tuna, and topped with lots of fresh greens. Hubby’s hot pastrami (‘‘twas a Reuben by another name) was served on marbled rye. Huge. Either meal would have comfortably fed us both. But we waddled out with happy tummies. . Stephen Smith iced tea was excellent as well. Can’t help you on the brews, as we didn’t imbibe.

What a cute place - loved the ambiance! We got there at 6 on a Saturday and had to wait for a table, so, reservations might be a good idea. We both had burgers; they were very good. Our waitress was attentive and the host was friendly and helpful. Definitely a place to visit again.

Boda’s Kitchen is a gourmet delicatessen, market and catering company. We are passionate about using high quality, seasonal ingredients sourced locally when possible.The Pacific Northwest and particularly the Columbia Gorge is bountiful with ingredients. From wild-caught salmon to the ripest cherries and pears, there is little reason to look elsewhere for tasty food.
Service: friendly Food: warm and delicious Satisfaction: 100% Great food options for parents traveling with kids. I went with my son and I ordered a hot Italian sandwich. My son grabbed the chicken rotisserie. I liked the effort that Boda's kitchen is doing to give...MoreThanks Paloma A. You two made great choices! We feel it's our responsibility to minimize the impact of the disposables we use given how much take out we do. We are always looking for ways to do better. Cheers, Matt and Sirota (aka Boda)

At Celilo, we are committed to a healthy and sustainable future. Our menus feature Pacific Northwest cuisine made with fresh and local ingredients.We hope that you will join us in our dining room’s warm atmosphere, created by local artists and craftsmen.
If your in the Hood River OR area and want a great dining experience you would be hard pressed to find something better than Celilo's. On a recent trip I had the Salmon and it was perfect. They also have a great wine list.
