After sitting for 20 minutes at Sodbusters in Goldendale and not being served, the Shilo was quite welcome, excellent service and food will definitely stop here again.

Gave this trip 0 stars. Went with a large group poor waitress busted her butt did her best but it was just her no help, couldn't spare another person to help her. Food was so slow, couldn't get a drink since she was so swamped. Food was wrong, stone cold. Food was all obviously pre packaged and flavorless, rice mushy.... More

The grill was close as we stayed in the Shilo Inn. Lots to choose from. Many Cahjen foods but plenty other choices. A bit on the pricey side I thought. Staff was good. place was clean. The View was the best.

We stopped there for lunch on our way through the area. Ordered a salad and sandwich. Both were good at a reasonable price. Service was friendly. The view overlooking the river is the claim to fame. It is a lovely view, and we enjoyed it during lunch. The restaurant is somewhat dated and run down, so it could stand some... More

Service was non existant for both dinner and for breakfast - never again. Dinner food was not what was ordered and then charged $6 more for what was served vs what was ordered. Did nothing when brought to their attention. Food was half cold. breakfast was even worse. Free coupon from Shilo Inn was worthless as all the food was... More

Shilo provides coupon for free breakfast ( 3 choices) Adding a small order extra provides for decent hot breakfast. Food is good. Stoney is organized and very task oriented.

There were three free breakfast choices. I opted for biscuits and gravy, my husband chose ham, scrambled eggs and toast. No frills, but it was free. The biscuits were light and the gravy was fine. Not too salty. My husband said the eggs were a bit overcooked, or they had sat a bit before being served. Turns out, that day... More

The outside is old and run down The inside is dirty . The view of the river is blocked by some buildings that are falling down. But don't let that detur you. The food we had was expensive and had a strange flavor. What a way to end the day. On the bright side the server we had (didn't get... More

Walk-in to a comfortable setting with large windows offering a wonderful view of the Columbia River and surrounding area. A nice outside seating patio makes for a pleasant spot for a drink and meal. A bit of history with buildings from the Shaker Church with the beautiful river and dam in the background. Service was great, food was served quickly... More
