Looking for Lunch in the Gorge?

Posted by West Columbia Gorge Chamber on Tuesday, January 5, 2016
If you find yourself looking for lunch in the Columbia River Gorge area after a hike to Punchbowl Falls or a trek up Angel’s Rest, you don’t have to wait until you make it back to the Portland-Metro area before you find a place to grab a bite:

Locks Waterfront Grill  

The Locks Waterfront Grill is part of the Visitors’ Center in Marine Park, Port of Cascade Locks off Highway 84 at exit 44. 

Our menu by chef Mike Conklin features fresh, local and organic selections including fresh cut french fries, fish and chips, Painted Hills Organic ground beef burgers and much more prepared in our state of the art kitchen.

The Grill operates full time with expanded waterfront seating directly overlooking the Columbia River and plenty of free parking for all. The Visitors Center is packed with information and history about the Cascade Locks, the Columbia Gorge and activities available to you during your visit.

Bridgeside Restaurant 

Bridgeside restaurant in Cascade Locks, Oregon, is a historic restaurant next to the landmark Bridge of the Gods. With outstanding Columbia River views, Bridgeside has been a dining destination and popular travel stop for over six decades.

Bridgeside serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Under new ownership since July, 2013, the former Char Burger restaurant was completely remodeled and updated in 2014. In 2015, the new owners decided to change the name from Char Burger to Bridgeside to better describe the restaurant’s incredible location next to the Bridge of the Gods. The new name is also more inclusive for the variety of menu items Bridgeside offers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And finally, we hope it will enable us to better promote the special event space with its stunning views.

Bridgeside retains the historic character and memorabilia for which the Char Burger in Cascade Locks was well known. Bridgeside is the perfect traveler’s restaurant for visitors of the Pacific Crest Trail, Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail, Multnomah Falls and other Columbia Gorge waterfalls and attractions. We also enjoy serving long-time locals, and folks just passing by.
