First time “inside” dining since last year .. felt comfortable.. enough room between parties . Pleased with the protocol they had.

Food is always good and service is very good too.

The new menu is fantastic! Kickstand saw a great oppertunity to introduce some new and creative dishes which do not have rivals in the Gorge. The veal was outstanding! This is my go to spot but the new menu is a game changer.

I love that they are experimenting with other foods, but alas, the spices required to make the food what I expected it taste like, were not used enough.

It is nice that inside dining has opened up, but it was very cold sitting inside at kickstand, it would have been much warmer outside under the tent. In the future I will call in my reservation instead of booking online, so that I can request an outdoor table next to the fire. If people are willing to sit inside then the doors should be closed to keep the warmth inside. I was wearing a puffy jacket and my hands were still freezing.

Fantastic dining experience at Kickstand. Always a favorite for locals, the menu changes weekly based on fresh ingredients. The short ribs over polenta was off the charts good. Octopus salad was incredible; fresh grilled octopus over roasted potatoes with chorizo sausage. The flavors were amazing. I ate the entire dish!! COVID ambience is really nice. Felt 100% safe and happy to dine out!

They have great tasting food, and the presentation of it is equally outstanding. Their cocktails are delicious, and creative! Best I’ve had in a long time, and in the Columbia River Gorge area! Currently they have outdoor seating due to the virus mandates, but it is also done nicely. Staff & Owner our friendly & efficient.

The waitress serving us was not attentive, forgot beer order twice, another persons cocktail, brought food without utensils or napkins. Ordered Spanish coffees and cream they used was sour, when mentioned to waitress she didn’t even offer to have drinks remade or refunded and no apology. Had to ask other waitress working for most things. We frequent Kickstand often since we live in town and where there with 2 other locals who refuse to go there because the service is so poor but came because it was my birthday. Won’t be back until later I hear service has improved.

Our apologies! We have high standards of customer service, and what you experienced was certainly not it! With that said, we are unfortunately low on front of house staff. We are in the midst of bringing back staff, but find ourselves struggling as unemployment is offering a significant stay at home wage. No excuses, but circumstances are not helping things! I would love to send you a gift card for your next visit - Please email your address to kickstandkim@gmail and give us another chance.

We absolutely loved this place tonight! Day on the mountain playing with pup in snow. Ending here with great cocktails, yummy food especially the Katsu. Service was great even with covid reduced staff! Heaters and awesome table fireplaces. You guys nailed a much needed rare night out with our pup Nova! We WILL be back, maybe next week 🙂

They did a great job making us feel safe and comfortable. The servers are friendly, tables are spaced appropriately, masks are on correctly and there is good ventilation in the tent. The Southern menu was delicious, especially the deviled eggs and fried chicken. My kids highly recommend the chocolate chip cookie a la mode. We look forward to trying their new menu soon!
