Great pub style food; burgers, sandwiches, fries, house-made soups. The food is simple and inexpensive, and the atmosphere is really laid back. More of a lunch place for us, evenings are more geared toward locals and entertainment. Small selection of tap beers, bottled beers, and cocktails. They typically have live music on the weekends and sometimes during the week.

Sightseeing
At 4000' above sea level, you can view 5 mountains from this point on a clear day. Can drive most of the way to it, but there are a LOT of stairs in the hike to the view point.

Parks & Nature
Most years you can ski or board all year long! Parts of "The Shinning" were filmed at the lodge. Lodge is nearly 6000' above sea level on the south side of Mt. Hood. Makes for a great and up close view of the mountain.
