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.

We’ve been disappointed the last 2 times we’ve eaten here. Our friends order was wrong, had to wait for them to correct it to then get an undercooked steak that he had to send back again. They were very nice about the correction.
The bread tested like it had been in the freezer and the focaccia has soooo many crunchy mill type stuff on it that it was very messy and tasted blah.
It was very slow for a Saturday night which felt odd. Overall it was not worth the money.

Atmosphere A+, asked for a quiet space on a Friday evening and they delivered. A little let down by the amount of ravioli they served for the price and the chicken fettuccine Alfredo had a different taste (wouldn't order either again). Will return.

OES was recommended to us. This is a very nice fine dining establishment. Our table was in one of the train car booths and the noise level was higher than the open dining space. We had prime rib and the house burger. Ample servings that we could not finish, but delicious. Creme brulee finished off our meal. Service was attentive and not intrusive. For a special dinner out, I recommend OES.

Had the Calamari, Iron Horse Burger, and Porter steak. All our food was excellent, the waitresses passing our table were all attentive and friendly. The tomato/basil enriched olive oil for the bread was surprisingly delicious and in the same mouthful as the porter was to die for. Excellent meal!

First time there was over thirty years ago and it’s definitely gotten better
with age! Service was great for a Saturday night and accommodating for special requests. Food was very good and the wine was excellent. Will be making a few more visits in the future. Using OpenTable was extremely easy and accurate as well.

My guests and I had a great time during dinner service, it was our first time there and we’ll definitely be going again! We had the crab dip as an appetizer and it was delicious, as well as everything else we ordered for main course. My S/O loved his steak, and I agree, definitely the go to in town now for a well cooked/seasoned steak. They were also so kind and let me choose a complimentary desert since it was my birthday too. Awesome venue, and fantastic food

Only complaint---it was my husband's birthday, loved the filet, but can't you find something other than carrots and zucchini for vegs, he hates those. He thought the French onion soup was fantastic and I have to figure out the herbs used. My ahi was fantastic and believe it or not, the pear in it went well with the pinot noir. Great birthday and the dog got no leftovers.

Great food with an unusual table setting in railroad train cars. We really enjoyed it. Steaks were prepared perfectly and the waiter staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcomed. I plan to revisit the OES restaurant next time I visit Eugene.

Since we have food and wine here often it is always nice to recommend OES. We had an idea change for dinner by eating all of our food from the appetizer menu. Great choices for tasty food. Good wine, fast service, and wonderful server and bartender. We finished the evening with Port wine and the fireplace.

We were seated promptly and the wait staff was excellent. All three of us ordered clam chowder, and although the flavor was excellent, everyone's chowder was lukewarm at best and had to be reheated. The Caesar salad was good but underdressed. I like this place and feel it has potential, it just needs some fine tuning.

The overall experience was wonderful. The service was delightful and very accommodating. We got a bottle of wine, french onion soup, salad, prime rib, lobster and rib eye. We received a free dessert for our birthday dinner, which was outstanding.
The atmosphere was wonderful and we really enjoyed our overall experience. We would recommend to anyone. Make reservations.

OES was over priced. Food was ok but not worth the price, especially the seafood and steaks. For example, you can get better cuts of meat at Safeway, grill them yourself and end up with a better meal, great flavor, and have money left over for a movie, gas, and snacks.
