The Dizzy Hen strives to try to make food that is generous, giving, warm, true and nourishing, while making their guests happy and entertained at the same time.
Worth a visit
On our road south this was well worth a stop. Good and fresh food, Very friendly staff, original decoration.The restaurant was filled with happy people.
Breakfast at the Hen
Visiting my daughter at the University of Oregon. Just down the road was the Dizzy Hen. Wonderful breakfast and a friendly, homespun atmosphere. Coffee was fantastic and the homemade English muffin was a real treat. Huge portions and everything was cooked perfectly. Good selection of items to eat, great stop!
What are they doing in Philomath??
I am so tired of "Breakfast Restaurants" that serve bacon/sausage/eggs/potatoes. Don't get me wrong, I like that kind of breakfast but I can do that at home and way cheaper. This place had new ownership a few years ago. Before the new owners it was called "best bacon around'. It had a handful of regulars and that was it. When the new owners took over the menu was a first pass at trying for a step up. It was OK but a little pricey and meh. That was a few years ago. Now - OMG new dishes that are spectacular and reasonably priced. The drawback is the crowd of people waiting to eat. I just had the "Pork Ragu" and it was fantastic. If you are looking for breakfast in Benton county that is not bacon and eggs this is the place!!
Eclectic and Fun
Short, eclectic menu, but with enough traditional dishes to satisfy the unadventurous as well. Efficient, very outgoing owners and staff make each stop like a visit with friends. Liquor and beer license for those who imbibe, and top shelf coffee for everyone.
Having heard so many good things from locals, I finally had the chance to visit The Dizzy Hen a few weeks ago. It's a clean, sunny place with friendly staff. I ordered the polenta with a tomato puree topped off with their own pesto sauce. One of theist delicious things I have tasted in the Corvallis area, well worth the short drive to Philomath. I will include a meal at The Dizzy Hen in future trips to the coast.
