Hayden's Lakefront Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food was great. It wasn’t super busy and we were sat at a very small table and everything seemed to move VERY quickly. In the future I would hesitate on ordering as fast as we did this time. We were in and out in 40 min with drinks appetizers, salads and dinner. Special occasion was not acknowledged, however it wasn’t very busy so maybe the reservation wasn’t looked at.
We are traveling, stayed overnight in Tualatin to have some custom work done on our van. It was a very rainy night and we were looking for somewhere to have a nice meal that was close by. Hayden’s was perfect, from the friendly bar with substantial drinks, to a delicious dinner, with something on the menu for everyone. We split a salad and still didn’t finish it. They had a special on lobster tails (when added to an entree) 2 for $8. They were small but tasty, and we split them as a first course. Our dinner entrees were fresh, delicious, and large portions. For wine, there was a special house Pinot noir made by the owner (in addition to many other fine choices). All in all, it exceeded our expectations.
Hayden's Lakefront Grill--just the right setting for a long leisurely lunch catching up with friends. We were shown to a table by the window giving us a perfect view of the Tualatin Lake. The ambience was warm and conducive to conversation. We couldn't have asked for better service. The menu had changed since our last visit and our server took the time to describe each new entrée to us. Our lunches were good as we taste tested the new menu items. The relaxed atmosphere at Hayden's makes this one of our favorite lunch destinations.
The appetizer was a bit over-cooked and the entrees were delicious, as was the desserts for the birthday celebration. Sat outside by the lake and enjoyed the cool evening. Only downside was a group of teens from Newberg being rowdy while out for dinner before prom.
This was recommended by a friend as having good steaks -- and it did. The prices were not cheap, but far more reasonable than the steak houses around town. The steak was well cooked, and tender, although not astonishing. All in all a good spot for a causal dinner that didn't break the bank.
The decor is dated. The restaurant has an elevated area where we were seated that oppressive; felt like a slightly upscale Dennys. The retro lights were entirely too bright and had no relationship to the other lights in the building. The booths were like sitting in a 1970s restaurant.
The staff were kind enough to turn the lights down; the exposed filament lighting is hip in some industrial settings. Here it's just uncomfortable. The restaurant was empty which never feels good. Overall the atmosphere was sad and conflicted.
The hors d'oeuvres were surprisingly good; shrimp on delicious polenta with balsamic glaze. The blue crab cakes with a tomato raisin chutney were good. The shrimp would have been better if they were wild. The crab cakes, despite how good they were are an odd offering with east coast crab. I suspect they are purchased premade.
The entrees were not so hot; my sons fettuccini with bacon was greasy. My cioppino was really not; a watery broth with impossible to eat stone crab claws, clams and mussels were good but salmon in the broth that was billed to be cod is just weird. The broth flavor wasn't bad, it just wasn't cioppino.
Our waiter was nice and the service was good if unsophisticated.
There is some professional talent in the kitchen; just poor decision making and a confusing theme
This could be a great location; decor needs to feed to the beautiful outside deck. Lower the raised area so the dining is all on one floor; the place will feel more prosperous. Get rid of booths altogether. Lose the well maintained hanging flowers; they block the view and help make the interior feel oppressive.
The reliance on cheap, east coast seafood is an indicator of a poorly operating house. The menu needs an overhaul.
Hayden's always does a very good job. Food is consistently good. I sat on the lake with my friend for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny September day. I ordered their fried chicken salad and substituted for grilled chicken instead. And it was a low carb day for me so Hno tortilla strips and it was delish. Several options for Paleo Style eating. I always enjoy coming here.
When I reserved, I requested a lakeside outdoor table. Unfortunately they didn't actually reserve one for us, even though we arrived on time, and it was not busy. We were seated at a table of our choice in the second row - all of those were available.
Three of us were served the Sunday outdoor BBQ dinner. The 4th dinner "was on the way." Later the wait staff discovered the 4th dinner order was never submitted, so it arrived 20 min's after that - with apologies. The first wine glass order was wrong, so a second glass of wine was comped. My husband asked twice for butter for his corn...
The food was great - the service was not.
The service made our Mother's Day experience memorable. Roses and champagne for mom were nice touches. Food (except for peppered bacon that was outstanding!) was OK, desserts (except cream puffs that were outstanding!) were OK. For the value to increase, more on the menu should move from the category of standard fare or just "OK." The lake view is very nice, but we were seated back away from the window where we could not see it.
The selection for Mother's day Brunch was more than ample. There was a good variety of taste represented and there was never any lack of any dish. I would go there again, even though the cost is a little more comparatively to other brunches I've been to lately!
Family gathering for Easter Brunch. Food was COLD and poor quality. Sternos were not keeping food hot. Omelets from omelet station were under cooked. Service poor--could not get plates cleared or much attention at all. Manager seemed unconcerned about our complaints. We had a late 2:30pm reservation and were told they were shutting down the buffet and to hurry up.
Have eaten at Hayden's in the past and overall good experience. Brunch was a huge disappointment and overpriced for the experience. Never again...
We had a lovely birthday lunch for 4. It is such a beautiful place with the lake. Service and waitress were awesome. We ordered the tuna melt sandwiches - they were a little dry but the ambiance made up for them. We shared a birthday dessert which was delicious.
Had a nice 1 1/2 hour dinner here with another couple before a concert at the Winona Grange in Tualatin - which we could walk to from the restaurant so we only had to park once. My husband and I split the caesar salad and then each had the meatloaf, which was plentiful and very good. The other couple had seafood chowder and the house salad, and the carbonara, and both enjoyed their meals. I recommend the Merlot by the glass. I've also booked Hayden's private rooms for meetings, and they do a very nice job.
