The Oregon Electric Station was originally designed by A. E. Doyle and opened its doors in 1914 as the final stop of the electric railway, connecting people throughout the Willamette Valley. Local newspaper headlines declared it to be "the greatest day in the history of Eugene."

Today, this same building has been restored as the new Oregon Electric Station Restaurant and it remains as busy today as it was when the station was built. Over the last 100 years the building has been listed on the National Historic Register, and has become a landmark of social significance that has a union of historic value and incredible dining experiences.

Our menus are globally inspired and artistically crafted, striving to use sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. Representing the rich history of Eugene as well as its surrounding fertile lands, Oregon Electric Station is committed and dedicated to the quality of their product, ambience, and hospitality.

The food was great and the service wasn’t awful. But In my opinion if I go eat an expensive nice meal I’d prefer if my server isn’t wearing a jersey. If that’s what I want I’ll just go to Taylor’s. They make a mean burger.

Great food and first rate service. A wonderful fine dining experience from appetizer to dessert. The steaks and scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious.

Food and my waitress was great but the hoestests and food servers are very rude and snotty. They definitely ruined my first experience. We waited awhile for our food and drinks.

Food prepared did not justify the cost of the meal. Steaks were not cooked correctly to order, veggies were scarce and slightly burnt and the mashed potatoes looked like they were chalk full of butter/oil which I didn’t even touch. Until the food quality improves to match what I expect a $100 tab for two should be. I won’t be a returning customer.

It was a perfect evening for a good dinner before leaving our son at University of Oregon. Service was excellent and our table was not too close to other diners. It is a big restaurant but felt intimate. Expensive but worth it.

Fun venue. Railroad theme, I think based on old electric tram system. Friendly staff, great service, and delicious food and drinks. We would definitely go back.

We were there for a late birthday dinner for our dad who turned 88. They were so kind and gracious. They even gave him a bday card and cake. So nice! We stayed past closing and were surely irritating, yet the waiter treated us extremely well. Steaks were amazing.

Great food, Great service. Just a bit over-priced. Drinks are REALLY over-priced but that's where they make their money. Lower your prices a bit, increase your sales.

Overall a nice experience- it’s a historical establishment that has been renovated into a restaurant. Great vibes and interior decor worth checking out. Waiter was very professional and quick. The hostess that helped us wasn’t quite friendly.

I have been a long time customer. The remodel modernized the lobby and hall, but the hard surface floors now transmitts the sounds that makes it sound like a junior high cafeteria!
The service, food, and in the rail cars makes it all worth it.
Thanks especially to our waitress Stacy for her personal care making the birthday celebration for our friend a special one!

Great place! The food was amazing, and the servers were very polite. The only negative thing was the younger hosts up front acting like they were there against their will, but once you get past them it's awesome.

An expensive restaurant, more expensive than the average upper-end restaurant. Yet, the ambience was excellent; the food nicely prepared, and the server (who had worked there for more than 20 yr), was outstanding.

So I will be back.

I have been to the Oregon Electric Station numerous times throughout the years. I have always received great service and food but my husbands 65th birthday last week was the best experience we have had to date. The staff truly made our experience special. Thank you for being an outstanding restaurant that stands out above the rest.

No more garlic mashed potatoes to accommodate the prime rib.
My prime rib wasn’t as large, thick or tasty as it has been in the past.
Smaller portions.
The chocolate cake for dessert should have the raspberry on top. It tasted like a Betty Crocker cake mix~nothing special.
But the waitress was wonderful ~ great service.

We where looking for a place for dinner before an show at the Hult center and picked this one based on a lot of good reviews, but left disappointed. Granted, the ambience and service where food overall, but the food left much to be desired. The Mach and cheese was bland, the lamb shank dry and the veggies and grits bland as well. Not sure if it was just an off night, but for the money spent, I would hesitate to return.

This was our 60th wedding anniversary dinner. The food was awesome, wait staff was so pleasant and helpful. Our waitress, Marie, gave us a card signed by the whole staff, a nice touch for a perfect evening.

It has been several years since we have been there and noticed the menu is bigger and better prepared.

A great place to spend a special occasion.

We had dinner in one of the two dining cars inside the restaurant, which was fun. Our waitress was very helpful and the food (Green goddess salad, lamb shank and scallop risotto in our case) was quite good. We asked for boxes to carry home the leftovers.

There were 10 of us - 3 children and 7 adults. We only had one hour to eat until our show at the Hult Center start.

Our waiter was phenomenal in making every one of our request fulfilled.

The meals were impeccable. Thanks to the chef and kitchen staff.

The only place I could see that is greatly needed is to improve the menu by adding Vegetarian Entrees. It’s difficult to come to a fine dining place and eat Pizza as the entree.

From out of State wanted a good Steak and there were 4 of us. New York was overcooked and fatty and Ribeye was Burnt on top and covered with glaze to hide. Disappointed especially with the high prices, service was very slow , even had to ask for waters twice. Seemed like since they had the crowds they didn't need to produce on the quality of food and service side. Wouldn't go back or recommend .

While I seldom write reviews of participate in surveys, the OES "experience" was exceptional and worthy of feedback. As a first time visitor, I didn't have any history with OES, but DO anticipate future visits - the food was excellent and well prepared, but I think the historical background of the building and the use of the century-old electric trains converted to spacious dining areas was GENIUS! While I don't recall the waitress's name, she was perfectly suited for her profession - courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone seeking a top notch restaurant with a quality product - well worth the price!
