“This is such a cool place. It's down some stairs below the sidewalk on Commerce St in Longview. By day it is Gyros Gyros Cafe. At 4pm it becomes Bowers' Down Restaurant. Both are owned and run by a local farm to table restauranteur. You will be amazed at his locally sourced and hand crafted dishes!! He butchers his own meat from his farm. He's an endless source of entertainment and information. Highly recommend you call for reservations if going during Bowers' Down time.”

“Great wedge salad—I advise adding bacon & avocado. Favorite drink is the lemon basil-tini! A few beers & wines but better known for their mixed drinks. They have fondue & some flatbread pizza & sandwiches. I like the calamari appetizer with the dipping sauces! Some other eats on the menu as well. Small but nice venue. ”

“A quaint café located at the Camp Kalama campground just north of town on the Kalama River. People often describe it as a "cute little Mom and Pop cafe". The food is fresh, made to order and reasonably priced. A very cozy log-cabin atmosphere. Don't be surprised if you end up chatting with the chef!”

“Family style Americana restaurant featuring classic selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's a bar in the back where the locals hang out. Family friendly and great for groups. Marie's favorite is the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich on sourdough with a glass of wine. Conveniently located at the north end of town. Plentiful parking. The claim to fame is Elvis Presley's visit in the 1960s. There's a placard on the building about it, and plenty of memorabilia.”
