Its on the way to somewhere coming from someplace. Unless you're heading to a specific place along I-82 , the place to stop for a meal is Cousins. Had a chicken pot pie that had chunky pieces of veggies and chicken. My wife had unlimited soup and salad for $10. A must stop if roaming along the Columbia river

We were looking for a reasonably priced dinner with a variety of options and found it here based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Great service as well. The broasted chicken was very good

I had the meatloaf and enjoyed every bite. My wife had a chicken sandwich. The trains that are used as decorations are wonderful to look at. The service was a little lacking in attentiveness but we were taken care of. We splurged and bought a huge cinnamon roll for breakfast the next morning. It was delicious. You have to try... More

We ate here a couple of times while in The Dalles and we were not disappointed with anything we had. In fact, I ordered the same salad both times because I liked it and there was plenty to satisfy my hunger. My husband had an appetizer and some clam chowder, and he enjoyed both. Service was better the first time... More

Meal was a 4 out of 5 but definitely overpriced for what you get. They sat us in an area that was the gathering place for servers to pickup meals from the kitchen. Their subject of conversation made our dining a bit awkward. In fact the other table got up and left. Probably wouldn't go back unless only thing open.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to northern wa. The wife was skeptical as is was going to be all fried food that tasted the same. I was a bit leery as well. You walk in and you step back in time to when diner and family style restaurants dotted the highways. I ordered the all you could... More

We stopped here to eat on our way to Portland. We had been looking forward to eating here because the website looked like it had good food. We were very disappointed. Terrible service. There wasn't enough room in the dining room so we had to sit in the "saloon". I don't care for peanut shells all over a floor... it's... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our restaurant.
