The Island Cafe is such a great experience. If you visit on a nice day plan on putting your name on a waiting list. It is right on the water in the marina on Tomahawk Island. The prices are fair and the food is good. The kids willl love to feed the ducks so if you can, try to sit by the water. If you are a boater you can pull right up and enter from the water. It is a great place to be in the summer!

I love this little floating bar on the Columbia slough. It is located in a marina and full of locals that live on their boat. You can hang out on the docks and watch the boaters go by. They serve cocktails and beer, typical fried food. Spend a sunny afternoon here and you'll feel like you're not in Portland.

This restaurant has outdoor seating. They provide good portions at a reasonable price. The staff were friendly and provided good service. Can't wait to go back!

This place is great... only open in the summer for a reason. The entire place is on the water. All the seating is outside. On a warm day it is a fun place to go and eat. The food is great, but keep in mind this is a relaxing place. Don??t go if you are in a hurry. Everyone working is on vacation but the food is worth the wait. Make sure you save some fry??s for the kids to through at the ducks.

Hard to find look for small signs and walk down a long dock...

Great, fun place to take friends and family; the dock setting is unique and the food is great - you can taste the grilled flavor of the burgers and freshness of the fish. And the price is very reasonable.

On both occassions that we have gone, however, we have had the same waitress who, after taking our orders, disappears until she brings our check, never offering refills or anything. Others might not have the same experience with different servers.

Pros: Menu, quality, price, location

Cons: Very busy at times

.

If going by boat, get there early as the slips fill up quickly. There are two extra slips around the West side of the Cafe. If the slips are all full, it is definately worth the wait. Food is outstanding and mixed drinks are modest.

Someone at work mentioned this place, so a good girlfriend and I headed over there last night. We made it time for their Happy Hour - which is from 3 to 6 PM, and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated promptly, and were greated by amazingly friendly staff. This place is so much fun, the food is good and reasonably priced. I can't believe I've lived in Portland for 10 years and just found this place!

Pros: island/beach atmosphere, on the water

Cons: the ramp - don't where heals!

I discovered this little oasis a couple of years ago and have been returning every week during their open season. The food is good, service excellent with all of the staff calling my dog "Bear" and me by name and the atmosphere is totally relaxing...like being on a beach in Mexico. This is my favorite hangout and well worth the trip. You will love it too, unless you are the starchy uptight kind.

Cons: it is not open year round due to weather constraints

This is the best little place on the river. Yes you might wait a while for a table if the weather is good, but its fun wait. Hey, have a beer, or a mixed drink. Check out the good looking staff. Walk on the dock.
I love this place.
Food is typical pub or cafe food, but decent. The Fish Tacos and Fish and Chips are great. Burger and also pretty darn good.
Service is great, and also fun to look at. Not your typical 18 year old trashy girls. Nice looking MILFS!!
I would recommend this place to anyone: Singles, Dates, Families....there is something everyone!
You want a awesome place to chill that isnt your normal everyday run of the mill bar come here....
Its sooooo awesome!

Pros: food, service, sights, everything

Cons: Very cold during bad weather

Had the unfortunate experience of being hungry and thirsty after a day on the river....this is strictly the Jantzen beach crowd.....service is average, food-grease city....live music some weekends-generally marginal to outright awful music....the better choice....stop at Salty's if you want a good dining experience.

You can pull your boat up to the dock and tie off to eat here, or come by car and park. We have done it all, it is beautiful to sit on the dock looking out on the Columbian River and dine in this "Island" attmosphere. If it is a beautiful day, plan on a little wait, but it is well worth it. They have a fun bar-great drinks, good food, somewhat of a limited menu, but really good.
We waot for this place to open in the late spring, and hate for it to close in the fall, one of our favorite places, very casual.

Island Cafe has long been one of my favorite (I also recommend the Hidden Bay Cafe on the other side of the island). These are 2 of Portland's best kept secrets. Although, it doesn't seem like much of a secret anymore. The Island Cafe's dock is full of boats, & tables full of summertime fans from open to close on summer days - especially wknds. Very cool place to sit outside & have lunch, dinner, cocktails, or breakfast. I like to go by boat, but usually have to wait for mooring space. Casual summer fun atmosphere, can't beat the river view, good eats, inexpensive, nice crew. Dogs are also welcome. There's a bowl of dog biscuits for your best friend. I look forward to them re-opening for the season in April. Highly recommended (even though it's crowded enough already)! ;-)

This restaurant was fun with lots of boats, great food, outside on the water. We had a group of us there and they treated us like royalty. Lots of good drinks, and the onion pedals are a must have along with the Columbian burger. We will be back for drinks, good food and a relaxing time. One of the most relaxing nights my family has had in over 2 years in Portland.

This is a hidden gem for Hayden Bay residents. IT has a very local flavor, with the servers knowing much of their customers by name. You are right on the water so there is no more perfect place on a sunny day. The food is good and it is an inexpensive place. Great place to have a drink during the summer or dock your boat for a quick dinner
