Restaurants in the Columbia River Gorge are about as easy to
locate as a Sasquatch. Adventurers in this National Scenic
Area might just want to save the effort for the forests and
the river and leave the food to the landmark Big River Grill"
"As these roadside restaurants prove, there is more than one reason to take the road less traveled...The unearthly gaze of the painted, mossy green-eyed mascot of the Big River Grill greets you at the door. She is the Columbia River sturgeon mermaid, and her near life-size likeness sets the tone for this quirky, yet comfortable restaurant. From the digs, you'd hardly
expect such a sophisticated menu. "
