Considering the number of diners served here, this wonderfully scenic old lodge-style restaurant does a pretty good job with its food and service. The building was constructed in 1925 at the base of Multnomah Falls. I’d recommend calling ahead for a reservation and having lunch here on your day trip through the Columbia Gorge. If you’re not the designated driver, you might enjoy a huckleberry daiquiri first. The rainbow trout is not wild, but it is from the Northwest, and the grilled salmon is worth trying. There’s also mac and cheese, prime rib, a tostada made with Oregon pink shrimp, and a vegetarian choice. For a peek at the thundering falls while you dine, try to get a table in the conservatory room or, in summer, out on the patio.
