I keep hoping that this place will improve as it is in a great location with a nice view of the river but alas it never improves. Dinner was over cooked and the wine list was marginal. I am done trying to like this place.

Terrible service. Place is officially closed. Probably due to the level of service. Absolutely a beautiful location would be nice if somebody could put something together there.

We only went here because of Restaurant Impossible and immediately found that they had screwed up the decor by taking down the artwork. It is so boring looking inside and has dusty light fixtures. We really should have just left after seeing that but we...More

We have travelled through The Dalles many times and have only found fast food places to eat. We started stopping in Hood River as The Dalles did not have the quality of restaurants we were looking for. Windseekers is definitely what we were looking for....More
