For 80 years we have been serving up great food and making memories along historic US Highway 30 in The Dalles. If you have a special occasion or just need a break from the kitchen we are glad to welcome you.
Delicious Dining, dress up or come casual.
The dinner salad was incredible and fresh. We had prime rib, available after 5pm. Take your time, enjoy a drink and enjoy your dining companions. It's a hidden gem with history.
Great hidden gem!
Delicious coconut shrimp and fish and chips. We found the filet a bit on the bland side, but overall, the ambiance is fantastic and the staff is welcoming. Worth a try!
Surprised by a delightful evening
Prime rib tender, massive amount of non breaded finger steaks, calamari was good, delicious salad...best part the friendly service. Rachel even offered to help me find the special sweet drop peppers that were on the salad. Enjoyed listening to the jazz, even our daughter commented that one of the songs was from a movie she had seen. Great little find right off the highway.
A Swing and a Miss
Hi-Way House certainly did not meet our expectations. Hubs had the Hi-Way Parmesan (with pork) and I had the prime rib. His soup was barely warm (my salad was good), his pork was overcooked and had no flavor of parmesan. It was supposed to have a creamy peppercorn sauce, but there was so little, it was barely noticeable. My prime rib was well cooked, but full of fat and silverskin. My vegetables were cold. The restaurant itself was dirty - the booths were greasy, the windowsill appeared to not have been cleaned in at least a year (if you had brushed up against it, your clothes would be dirty). The service was satisfactory but not very friendly. In short, it wouldn't take much to improve this restaurant, but I wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it.
Comfortable and delicious, with free dessert!
Gunner at the Celilo Inn suggested that we might like this place. He said it was a local favorite, and no wonder! It features prime rib, steak, and sea food; I had the prime rib sandwich, which was tasty and filling. Cocktails are good pours and reasonably priced. And the atmosphere is special: carpeted, so the noise level is low and you can easily hear your campanions; low lights for intimacy; linen table cloths and napkins for a nice touch. The staff was professional and chatty. and the prices were quite reasonable. With complimentary peppermint ice cream for dessert, served in pewter ice cream cups. Reminded us of a Midwest supper club, for those of you familiar with those.
