    Located in an old theater in the miniscule center of Parkdale - smack in the middle of the Upper Hood River Valley - is Solera, the second brewery to occupy the space. Pub food and decent beer is available. With good weather, picnic tables in the back - dog-friendly, of course - provide a great spot to end that hike, climb, and ride or simply enjoy the sun, a brew and the magnificent view of the north side of Mt Hood.

    Favorite Dish: It is all about the beer and the HUGE burritos!

    Ho Ho's: Less Crowded Area, Not Bad

    by glabah Written Oct 7, 2014

    Yes, you will find very mixed reviews of this restaurant. The best food in Hood River is downtown, which on many occasions is crammed with tourists and very difficult to visit. This has a very much dive-bar type atmosphere, and the curtains on the windows obscure everything (not that the main road outside has any scenic value here).

    However, their vegetable lo mein (photo 2) for $11.50 isn't such a bad price for a decent meal in Hood River. I don't like greasy food, and for me it wasn't bad. However, you may wind up with different results if you don't order a vegetarian dish.

    I'm fairly certain most of the reason they are still in business is the lottery, which they promote by having tickets at most tables and a video lottery room.

    The Crazy Pepper: Without a View, but Decent Food

    by glabah Written Jun 5, 2013

    From the street this windowless restaurant appears to be a tiny hole in the wall. The reality is that it occupies the center of the building, and therefore the restaurants and businesses surrounding it block off the view of the outside world. However, it is a quite decent restaurant and the price for the quantity of food is reasonably good - especially compared to so many other places in Hood River.

    Favorite Dish: The Vegetarian Casserole for $8.25 is a pretty good meal (see photo 2) for the price. It contains a bit more rice than I would have thought optimal, but I am not complaining too hard because the price is better than I would have expected to find in Hood River today.

    Pietro's Pizza: Pizza near the train station

    by Herkbert Updated Dec 13, 2010

    Pietro's is located on the block next to the train station, so it's a convenient place to stop for a quick dinner. We ordered a couple small pizzas so we could take the leftovers back to the hotel.

    The food was good, served piping hot out of the oven. The restaurant was clean, though empty as we got there early.

    Worth a stop if you want a quick bite.

    PICNIC: Whatever you can carry!

    by mtncorg Written May 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heading out onto the trails of the Columbia gorge, you need to be self-contained. There are no mountain huts where you can order up a beer, wine or mineral water. This is not the Alps, but the Wild west. You trade spontaneity and impulsion for lanning and a unique sense of natural wonder. More cheese with that wine?

    Wine, cheese, salami, bread? Another hike, another lunch. Natural cooler for your beverage of choice Picnicking atop Salmon Butte

    Multnomah Falls Lodge: Great food in a beautiful setting

    by phildeni Updated Apr 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside the restaurant is a huge fireplace and large windows for views of the falls. The fireplace is especially wonderful in the winter, and the snow scenes through the massive windows are marvelous.

    Favorite Dish: Fresh trout.

    Sol Luna: Wish this restaurant was in Houston

    by topmarmot Written Sep 18, 2003

    The food is a mixture of Mediterranean, North African and Middle Eastern. It is located in a former home and has a big patio out front with tables. A great feature is that there is a separate restaurant with its own menu where kids can be dumped while the adults enjoy a quiet dinner below.

    Favorite Dish: Excellent Greek Salad, almost as good as the real thing. We had Piri Piri Chicken with Saffron Rice and a marvellous Lamb Stew with Couscous. This was all from the set price dinner menu, which includes dessert, in our case a coffee cake served with both cream and ice cream. Decadent! The only niggle was that they ran out of decaf coffee. Surely that's a felony in Oregon?

    The a la carte menu looked good and they serve a wide range of tapas.
