Fine Dining in Parkdale and the Upper Hood River Valley
By: Mary Pellegrini
At the Old Parkdale Inn we take great pride in providing you with a hearty breakfast to start your day. We serve up the bounty of the Hood River Valley and the Columbia River Gorge. We focus our breakfasts around what is being harvested in the Valley
Spring ~ Berries
Summer ~ Cherries, Peaches and fresh veggies
Fall and Winter ~ Pears and Apples
to name but a few options
After breakfast or the evening you arrive, we'll share some of favorite dining spots. Of course, three of them are right here in Parkdale, within a couple of blocks of the Inn.
Apple Valley BBQ, walking distance from the Inn serving top-quality meats, amazing side dishes and a hefty dose of small-town hospitality with their lunches and dinners
Solera Brew Pub is a small brewery located in the historic Valley Theater, down the street from our Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast. Try a Hedonist IPA, one of their seasonal beers, or a wild and sour fruit beer aged on local fruit. Gaze out over pear orchards toward the craggy North face of Mt. Hood from their patio.
The Blue Canoe serves up Fresh and healthy! Grilled Sandwiches, rice bowl, wraps, daily house made soup.
Grateful Vineyard - Weaving together farming, fermentation and hospitality. Pizza, Salads, Wine, Cider, Beer
Just up the road toward Mt Hood is The Crooked Tree Tavern. We'd be amiss if we forgot to mention Saw Tooth Roadhouse. Lots of options in the Upper Hood River Valley
Hood River County has all the best of the Northwest food culture. Many of the restaurateurs, chefs, winemakers and coffee roasters in our region are here because they love the outdoors and it shows in the many dishes prepared from local, fresh ingredient.
Following CDC dining restrictions and suggestions, restaurants in The Valley are open with safety protocol in place. Some are doing take-out only. Some are doing reserved patio and dining room service. Please support them by calling ahead
