We were heading home to Portland from Utah and stopped for lunch. The view was phenominal, the service was outstanding, and the food was perfectly cooked and reasonably priced. Debbie the manager was our server. She was fast, very friendly, very knowledgeable about the food, location and the restaurant and very helpful. I highly recommend stopping by it's a pleasent and unexpected surprise. We'll definitely be back! Next time to stay the night so we can have dinner !

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. While looking for a restaurant close to a museum we were visiting I recognized Windseeker from a Food Channel show we enjoy. We went with friends after the museum for lunch. Do not be put off by the location in the Industrial area, it is one of the things that separates it from the fast food places along the highway. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the Columbia River. The gardens around the restaurant were a very nice touch. The décor was like in the show but seemed to be missing some tables and chairs making the high ceilinged room appear a little empty. The service was a touch slow as there appeared to be only one waitress but she was very helpful and accommodating. We all had the fish and chips as this was recommended by other reviews although there were a number of items on the menu that looked interesting for a lunch menu. The food was very good, well prepared and fresh. We were very pleased with the service and attention. Two in our group wanted to split one order, which they did very nicely for us. They charged us for splitting the order which was okay as they equalized the orders for them but they should have mentioned this to us when we ordered. If it was on the menu I missed it. I highly recommend the Windseeker and hope they continue to do such a good job as we want to return.

Great food, service relaxing and an amazing view we will definitely be back. We were a little late for lunch but still were surprised to see so few people.

I had heard that changes were made over the last year and they were correct. At the advice of an excellent waitress, Nora, I had the New York steak and baked potatoe. Comes with a cheddar biscuit and house salad. I took the waitress advise on the house "Ranch Dressing" and it was awesome. The whole meal was a pleasure and service was superb. Even got to see a ferry boat come by as a kicker. Would definitely return.

We were looking up restaurants in the dalles and stumbled across this wonderful place. The food was excellent. I had a steak with the blue cheese shrimp sauce and my boyfriend had the fish and chips! They were amazing. Ask for Amy to be your server she is sweetheart and deserves a raise!!
