The service was beyond amazing!! They were a little behind and comp’d our second drinks which was completely unnecessary but appreciated.
Good food, friendly service. Nice they have Small and Large plate choices.
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.
Good dinner and price. Will be back . One of the best burgers around.
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.
Delicious food and drink in a great community atmosphere.
Not a very friendly or welcoming atmosphere, but the burger was delicious.
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.
Dinner & drinks were so good as usual. Food has been good every time. Drinks are some of the best I’ve had. One of my favorite places now!
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!
Such a great place, really feel taken care of and the menu has some amazing staples but also changes enough to keep it fresh. Thx.
This place was fantastic! We had a great meal sitting outside next to the fire. They have a rotating menu, so I have to return again with the next regional food menu
We brought our close friends for dinner. They loved it, so did we!!!
It was so comfortable by the heaters and the revolving menu was super fun. Great cocktails and loved that there was plenty of fresh air (felt really safe).
Hi Tami, Thank you for your feedback - we are so glad you enjoyed your visit :) Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
Our experience was excellent like always. Thank you!
Thanks Rosie! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
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.

Woop woop! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
Have traveled the Columbia for 32 years from Walla Walla to Portland and am grateful to have finally found a place to enjoy an awesome meal!
Chase, it was so nice to meet you when you were in! Thank you for joining us and we look forward to seeing you again soon - don't miss our Mediterranean Pop up! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
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.
always delicious !
Thank you! Don't miss our rotating menus amidst COVID - doing our best to keep things fun and interesting (And flavorful!) during these difficult times! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
Delicious food and great service! We felt very safe with the precautions they have taken.
Best place in the gorge, hands down. The owners are HARD workers, and always positive and always striving to make the best meals (and drinks) to customers. If I had my way, I’d eat here every single night.
Brytt, You are the best! Always so nice to see you :) Hope to see you and your daughter in soon! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
My favorite place in town! Amazing food, drinks and service.
THANK YOU! Please introduce yourself next time you are in! Kim and Nick Hardin Owners
It was so nice to be able to go out! The food was AMAZING and atmosphere was great!
They have really made a great space outside to stay warm and dry! Their food is amazing as always and they make awesome cocktails!
Great ambiance and always friendly service. Food was brought out quickly and served hot! Healthy portions and great unique options...we love this spot!
Love the traveling menu. Great food, staff, and ambiance.
Amazing food, service and ambiance! Will be back again and again and again.
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 🙂
Wonderful ambiance, felt very safe while being cozy with individual table fireplaces. This is the best experience that we have had since the lockdown. The food and the staff was also amazing!
Great food and service! Love the outdoor dining!
Southern menu was great! Catfish was out of control. Cocktails, wine, desert all excellent which is why KickStand is one of the best in Hood River. The outdoor dining space is really nice! Thanks for staying open and serving the community during these times. See you soon.
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!
Love this place. The HEARTBEAT of Hood River!!! We have never had a negative experience at Kickstand. ❤️
