Chain-y, kid-friendly restaurant environment. Lots of seemingly seasonal hired hands performed adequate, somewhat uninterested service. The pizza was great. Double Mountainís beer is undeservedly unlauded. Very much worth a post-hike stop.
Stopped in on our way to HOTD Dock Sale. A very nice little place. A nice sampler on along with a BB brew. The food was tasty a nice pizza. A good price overall. You got a stop in and test it out.

Multi-room restaurant and bar. Seating for maybe 120 people at tables inside and a few outside. Highly ceiling, open-beams. A bit dark on a sunny day. Bar seating for eight people. Brewery area visiible through large glass doors & windows. Very friendly, loose atmosphere. 60s & 70s rock and country rock on the sound system. Fairly crowded on an early Thursday mid-summer afternoon. Wide variety of customers: young and older, families with young kids playing around the tables. Most of the beers are hop heavy (which they do well), along with some more experimental brews (not as well). Had a tasty sandwich, though pizzas are really the main thing here. Taster trays: five beers with variable pricing (regulars are $1.75 per glass, and seasonals or specials are from $2.75 to $3.50 per glass). Across the street from Full Sail.
Small little pub about a block from Full Sail. It turns out this place is a bit bigger then I thought at first, there is a side dining room, but I wasnít sure if they were seating people there, I just took a spot at the bar. The menu was small, but the sandwich I had was pretty decent. The beers were good, they had 8 on tap. Overall a good place, friendly staff that will talk to you about beer and the local scene. The prices were very high though, I was charged $4.50 for a half pint, so my tab was $12.00 for a sandwich and half pint.
When I walked in here, I was mad that I spent the last couple hours at Full Sail. They serve awesome pizza, and their beer is quite good. They were busy, but we stuck it out for about 15 mins to get a seat at the bar. Very glad we did. This is a bar that really feels "lived in" and grimy, but in a charming way.
Stopped in for a few beers on a Thursday evening. They had a band banging out some good covers. The four beers we had were $5 each (VALUE). The bar service with excellent, especially for a fairly busy night. They had at least ten on tap with a few more in bottles. Well worth the time.
A must visit on any trip to Hood River. The staff are wonderful and happy to chat as you sit at the bar. They are attentive and will keep your growler chilled if you decide to stay for a glass or two. The food looked great and I have heard marvelous things about their pizza, though I am yet to indulge. All their beer are stella, especially their wonderful sours which are among the best I have tasted in the USA.
Visited on a Thursday.
First, let me say the expansion of Double Mountain is much appreciated. It used to be small and cramped, forcing people to drink in a small garage. The addition makes this place feel much, much more professional and thought out.
Service was quick and good, some of the best Iíve had in Oregon outside Les Caves. Taplist is extensive with most of the house brews available to slake the thirst. The pizza is amazing. One of the top three places Iíve had in the state. Wish there was a view of the Columbia, but ah well, canít have everything, right?
Recommended. Eat at Joeís. Err, Double Mountain.
Stopped in for dinner and a beer while passing through town. Great location across the street from Logsdon. Very busy restaurant type setting. Sat in the restaurant portion myself. Very cool decor including bottle cap art and vintage beer cans. Everything I wish I had on my wall. Extensive tap list of their wide variety of brew. Our server was excellent, and knew everything there was to know about the brewery and beers. Wish I remembered the name. Was able to get a couple limited release, rare bottles to go, at a very fair price. Nice to go here and try some DM beers that I never see back home. Pizza was great. Beer was great. Would love to come back.
