A word from Black Rabbit Restaurant & Bar
Located in Edgefield's main lodge, the Black Rabbit is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fantastic murals tracing the history of Edgefield and the Columbia River Gorge line the walls and intimate booths encourage you to linger over a fine meal. Guests can choose from an innovative menu of Northwest cuisine and traditional favorites, as well as an expansive list of regional and international wines.

As of 2013, the Black Rabbit kitchen is run by executive chef Kenny Giambalvo, previously of Portland’s highly acclaimed Pazzo and Bluehour restaurants. Giambalvo will collaborate with Edgefield’s onsite winery, distillery and brewery both in his menus and for special events. The kitchen uses seasonal ingredients from Edgefield's own gardens, grown using organic methods.

    We enjoyed the roasted beet salad, seared sea scallops, lemon ricotta ravioli and bread pudding in the Black Rabbit restaurant in Edgefield. The noise level was definitely energetic until the large group at a nearby table got their dinner and thankfully settled down, and service was good in this interesting and attractive restaurant.

    3 stars/5 -- expensive for portion size Quality and Flavor 3+ Won't blow you away with menu or flavor but better than average pub come restaurant fare. Be prepared to pay for this step up though. Butter lettuce salad $9. Just 7 stacked leaves 4" wide. Well dressed, enjoyable but $$. Burger w a small portion fries $13.Throw a few extra fries on, they're cheap! Asked without mayo but came with. Pasta with peas $14 small, made fresh by outside vendor. satisfying flavor but you'll need that larger order if you're hungry! White wine $8.40 Smaller menu served concert days :( but understandable. Might return to try more of Chef Kenny G's full menu for special occasion. Not so affordable for casual drop by esp if you want to actually eat!

    Our meal was good, however, it was offset by the following: 1. We had golfed earlier and we finished earlier than expected so went to Black Rabbit about 20 min. before our res. time. We were told they would seat us in 20 min. Basically our original reservation time. When we were sat, we realized there were only 8 tables with patrons and the rest of the place was empty, yet lots of wait staff standing in the kitchen. Didn't understand why we had to wait. 2. Food took over 45 minutes to arrive after we ordered. had my 78 year old father with us and my sister visiting from Denver and took them to BR for a nice experience, but it we don't need to come back there or recommend it ever again.

    The Eggs Benedict w/Bloody Mary was the perfect brunch pairing. BM was spicy right for my taste w/a slice of pepper bacon. Eggs benedict had the muffin toasted w/c brought a delish crunch to every bite. Stellar service too by our waiter.

    This is the second time I've eaten brunch at the Black Rabbit, and while both times I was pleased with what I ordered and found them very yummy, both times I also wished there was just a little more selection - the menu is very limited with only a handful of items to choose from. The first time I had the salmon and bagel with capers and pickled onion and cream cheese. Delicious. The second time I had the smoked salmon Benedict. It was excellent. I just wasn't exactly in the mood for anything on the menu, but had to pick something, and ended up happy with what I did select.

    We chose to sit outside which was very quiet and romantic. Our waitress gave us the right amount of time for each course starting with appetizer of scallops, which was outstanding, to wine and dessert. I recommend the dessert sampler to share. All were very good and would order those choices again. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

    McMenamin's restaurants are quirky and fun, and on previous visits the Black Rabbit has prepared excellent food. This visit disappointed in several ways. The meal itself was pleasant but not memorable. I don't know what happened at this visit because prior ones were great. Hopefully just an off night.

    The restaurant was very busy because they had a concert that evening. We were seated at a small table in the hallway though they had vacant tables in the dining room. It took ten minutes before we saw a server, though once we did, the service from that point was good. The food was mediocre at best.

    Enjoyed the Black Rabbit before heading to a concert on the lawn. The atmosphere is nice, and it's great to have a slightly finer dining option than the typical McMenamin's pub fare. My husband's crab sandwich was amazing! We were disappointed that the service was not on par with the menu or prices. The cheese plate was unceremoniously dropped on the table as a fly-by, my husband had to call the server back to tell us what cheeses we would be enjoying. Our soup and salad arrived accompanied by our entrees, so that by the time I had finished my salad my entree was cold. So close, yet....

    The Black Rabbit is always a treat. We were seated immediately when we arrived [Monday night], not at all crowded. Out waiter Nicholas was attentive without being overbearing. Gave a good description of menu items . His recommendations were right on and we enjoyed the soup and salads very much. My husband had a wild mushroom flan with 5 vegetable and I had a starter of bacon wrapped scallops with cauliflower puree. We had to take half of it home as we were stuffed but enjoyed a trio of desserts for his birthday. Again flavors abound with passion fruit creme brulee, triple [to die for] chocolate cheesecake and Hogshead whiskey bread pudding. Small portions and just enough for 2. Our favorite go to place for great dining, food.

    Food was average. Cinnamon rolls were barely warm. Breakfast entrees were also barely warm, certainly not hot. Service was slow despite not being crowded. Decor was old and lighting very dim. I liked the historical feel of the place but it wasnt polished and lighting too dim for morning.

    Service was friendly and accomodating. I asked to make a couple of substitutions and they had no problem with it and the order was done right. Service was slow however, but it tends to be at McMenamins, so we planned for that. The food was good. Not amazing. Better than the typical McMenamins pub food. Best Bloody Marys ever though.

    We found Black Rabbit through Open Table, we searched for available tables 'near me' and this popped up with great reviews and an enticing menu. We gave it a try and I'm so glad we did! Edgefield is beautiful spot and the food was great. Out waiter was fantastic. We had a great time and we will definitely go back. I'm amazed that there is such a nice restaurant so close to our neighborhood. What a find!

    Went for my wife's birthday. Jason, our server, made the whole evening special. The food was mostly great. My wife had the waygu beef and was a little disappointed. Not as tender or flavorful as she expected. Pretty chewy. But she had never had it and wanted to see what all the hype was about. She also had the beet terrine and it was amazing. She almost had to fight me to get her share. They put a candle on the plate. She got a kick out of that. Barley soup was good. I love barley soup. We had a hummingbird cake and the salted caramel chocolate cake for dessert. Oh my! Would be perfect for a Just Dessert outing. On the whole a great experience. We intend to return. Thanks Jason for making it so much fun.

    McMenamin's knows how to charm it up, and this place is no exception. Food could have been better. The steak and eggs scramble special was reportedly pretty bland. My grilled cheese was good with some interesting flavors of the butternut squash. Another companion had the black rabbit burger and liked it quite well. The humming bird cake was yummy, like an Italian wedding cake almost with pineapple curd filling and banana cream frosting. I had the salted caramel torte and it was sweet, salty, rich and quite good. Good cup of coffee too. Service was a little spotty, but friendly for sure. Will definitely go again, even though it was quite spendy for lunch--95 bucks for four, no alcohol, so with the tip, pretty expensive for what we got.

    We have lived in the area of McMenamins Edgefield for almost 8 years, and have been to the Power Station on many occasions but this was our first visit to the Black Rabbit. We booked through Open Table and I did note it was our wedding anniversary but no mention of this was made by anybody. Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, even bringing me a sample of wine to try after I had chosen another. I really enjoyed the Blue Lake Green Bean & Mushroom Salad. I had the steak and it was flavorful but probably a touch overdone with "no pink" when I had asked for medium. This being touted as McMenamins fine dining experience I was a little disappointed to see other patrons very casually dressed.

The food at the Black Rabbit was good. The wait staff were nice and friendly. The food was very good. The reason I gave the rating of fair for service is that we were chatting for some time afer we were done eating and we were not asked if we wanted any thing else to drink (water or other).
