The Sunday Brunch very good, especially the Easter one. Last year we attended the Inn at the Quay in Vancouver at $28. It was terrible. (This year was $33 I'm told). Charburger was $13.95, and the food was fresher & better.

The only thing this place has going for it was the view. I know why they call this place CHAR burger, the outside of my burger was burnt, and the inside of it was pink...Can anyone say cooked at too high of heat/too quickly? The bun of

very sad little charred burger on a sad little stale bun. pretty much a hockey puck. I think I have food poisoning from the salad bar. not that expected much, but I expected a little and it gave me zilch.

SInce I was a little boy many,, many years ago I have nothing but fond memories of your establishment. I remember spending time with my grandpa there, the atmosphere and view bring me good feelings.
I honestly think that the people that gave you bad reviews were either in a different restaurant or they just don't like you and are trying to slander your good name.
Good luck! I have been there countless times over the years with countless people and they all agree, that's why the palce is usually hopping with customers

Keep up the good work.

And for anyone that doesn't know,(as I didn't for years), they have a fabulous Champagne Brunch on Sunday's beleive me you won't be dissapointed.

Pros: views worth paying for, fair prices, plenty of seating.

Cons: Don't get to go there enough!

I like the Charburger, although I'm a strict vegetarian. I used to take my son there when we hiked the Gorge. I met the owner and he's really nice. The son makes a great barbecue sauce - try it! I also enjoy browsing through the gift shop. I have never had a bad experience at the Charburger!

We stop here occasionally for a good mocha on our way through the area to start a local hike early in the morning. We have also had lunch here and the burgers our good, but the condiment wagon makes me wonder a bit about cleanliness.

The Charburger Restaurant is a landmark for people coming and going on Highway 84 in Oregon. It has great fast food, a cute gift shop and home made bakery items that you can take home. We usually plan our trips to include a stop there, going and coming and we have been doing this for years.

As a former worker of the charburger I know how disgusting it really is behind closed doors. I advise NO ONE TO EAT THE FOOD SURVED UPSTAIRS. The lower level used for specail occasions and brunches is much cleaner and the food is handled with more care. AS for the giftshop the candy and esspressos are safe. I wouldnt advise eating the cookies although they taste great the cookie dough is made in the upper kitchen and left sitting on the shelves un refregerated.

Pros: Good coffee and a great view

Cons: FOOD POISIONING

So, I have been coming to Char Burger ever since I was a kid wtih my Grandma. It was THE place to stop on the way through the gorge and I continue to go out of my way to go here for breakfast. The view of the gorge is really the only place to really sit inside any day of the year and enjoy what the gorge has to offer. Cold and rainy or bright and sunny - it's a 'gorgeous' view. If you sit in just the right place, the food won't matter.
Regards to food, I have never in 25 years had a bad food experience. There's lots of it and it's good, old-fashioned diner fare. You will get a surly, burly person at the counter usually. Get over it. It's part of the charm to get a real, true person who has a life and isn't afraid to live it right there in front of you without a corporate smile rule or 'professional' service worker training. Enjoy humanity while it lasts :)
The fresh made biscuits are large, incredible fluffs of beauty. The hashbrowns are sublime.
Eat up!

Pros: The view, humanity.

.

The view is absolutely the best in the gorge. The food is great...sometimes. Ok...sometimes...and really bad on a few occasions. Its just unreliable. You might get a really friendly counter person, a great big juicy burger with lots of crispy fries, or you might get a scary looking unfriendly server, a little grey greasy patty and a couple of cold fries. Sometimes the salad bar is really nice, other times everything looks several days old. Its just not reliable.
As for the espresso- I've only had one drink there- that was more than enough. The cookies are great though.

Pros: Can be all around fantastic. Always a great setting.

Cons: Can be...not good.

I love the relaxed cabin interior. We have been here a few times and have always had a great burger and awesome service. A burger so juicy that you have to eat it over a basket- be sure to grab lots of napkins. I would recommend the burger with the pinapple and ham- delicious. I wouldn't order onions rings as well unless you have a big appetite or a group. They also have a bakery, that serves coffee drinks. They have wonderful pastries to take home as well as giant cookies. Be sure to make this trip- go up to the falls for the day and make sure you make a stop here before you return to portland.

Pros: all great food & view next to windows

Cons: potent air sanitizers in the bathroom, ala carte desserts

The Hamburgers are great, we like the idea of fixing our own burger. We love the view, it is great even if you don't get a window seat. The service is great, they always check with you to make sure every thing is ok, more than once. The prices are no higher than any other place you would eat, and it is clean.

I have been visiting this food stop for over 45 years! It has grown from a little drive-up with a window to a very large dining in area. What makes it the perfect place for a great hamburger is that you get a basket with a bun, meat patty, and fries---and you go to the chuckwagon and add the extras! Soooo, you make it perfect!
It is a bit of a drive from Portland, but if you are going to be traveling I84---stop in and try it!

This should be one of the last places to make the Great Hamburger list. This place is outrageously expensive. Most everything is ala carte and self service. The food is not necessarily bad, it's just average. The prices are more reflective of a mid to higher end restaurant that has food service people (waiters & waitresses) that serve you at your table.

I guess that you have to pay the price in order to sit at the window and take in all of the scenic beauty of the River! It's just too bad that the owners don't change the situation around and improve upon the food offering, quality and service. The place has wonderful potential and has an awesome view!

I don't know when the last time anyone ate here but I just did a couple of nights ago and it was absolutely the WORST dining experience I have had in a very long time!! The hamburger and bun was COLD!! ALONG WITH THE FRIES. THEY VERY RUDELY POINT YOU TO A TABLE THAT HAS THE "FIXINGS" and you prepare it yourself. Nothing at all on the plate. The salad (green) was at least 3 days old, wilted veggies. It was very very bad. NOT AT ALL RECOMMENDED!!!
