“One of Hood Rivers great breweries. At Double Mountain you will find a menu heavy with IPA's, and not a single bad one! Also try their wood fired pizza and salads. ”

“Probably the fanciest dining in Hood River but not un-approachable. Best bet is to go here for Happy Hour where you will find a good selection of regular menu items at 50% off with the purchase of a beverage. 1/2lb Burger and Fries for $7.50? Yes please!”

“SUMMARY: For a long while, this was the downtown hotspot for families and friends of all ages, offering pizza, beers and a movie (Skylight Theater). And it still is a great location, extremely busy at times--therein lies the rub, for with great success comes great responsibility, and that's hard if your local work force is limited. FOOD: Management has great recipes for superb pizzas, and fantastic calzones rubbed with olive oil, but the help doesn't always get it right, especially when it's crowded (long waits, overcooked/undercooked, errors). DRINK: Beer on tap, sodas. AMBIANCE: Cafe-style, large family-freindly space, big tables, palyroom for kids, and a nice movie theater in the back.”
