Dinner at Steamboat Inn
An Engaging Tradition of Conviviality
Each night of the summer at dusk and in the winter around seven o'clock, the doors of Steamboat Inn close to all but Inn guests and those who have made reservations. At this hour, the staff at the Inn dedicates itself to a single purpose - the dining pleasure of the Inn's guests.
Sharon & Jim Van Loan or manager Pat Lee host the nightly occasion. At the dinner hour, guests gather in the library to sip an aperitif, enjoy the evening's hors d'oeuvres and exchange views of what made their day special at Steamboat Inn. The first course is served and the guests are invited to be seated! A main dish of beef, fish, poultry, lamb, or pork, follows with savory side dishes, fresh vegetables, and homemade bread. Oregon wines lend agreeable accompaniment, and every meal is brought to a gracious conclusion with a tempting dessert made for the occasion. We are happy to accommodate any food allergies, strong dislikes or vegetarian diets. Cordiality is the secret ingredient at Steamboat Inn.
From March through mid-June, Steamboat Inn hosts a series of highly acclaimed winemaker and guest chef dinners where meals prepared by some of the finest chefs in Oregon are paired with wines from Oregon's premier wineries. These dinners are a delight to the palate and sell out quickly. Check the calendar page for the latest schedule.
During the daytime, the Inn is not only a gathering place for fishermen, but for tourists and locals who savor "honest home cooking." The daytime restaurant offers an early dinner special for those not attending the later Evening Dinner.
