The standard of excellence for waterfront dining in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 40 years, Anthony’s uses only the highest quality ingredients, shipping in fresh seafood each day. Everything at Anthony’s is done with a touch of class and elegance, from their baked Dungeness crab, shrimp and artichoke dip appetizer to their famous crab cakes and pan seared scallops from the Wild Gulf of Alaska.

Pure ingredients equal pure bliss at Café Yumm!, where more than 50 percent off all the food served is certified organic. Equal parts soul satisfying and deeply nourishing, Café Yumm! is known for its Yumm! bowls made with rice, fresh vegetables, Tillamook cheddar cheese, sour cream, cilantro and of course, Yumm! sauce. We’re huge fans of the Bowl & Brew deal in which you can get an Original Yumm! bowl and craft beer for just $10.
Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria (pictured below)
A splendid collaboration of both the old world and the new, Flatbread stays true to the culinary traditions of Neapolitan pizza while also creating new and innovative dishes that’ll have you and your family coming back time and time again. You’ve got to try the woodfired pizza – the white truffle mushroom pizza is to die for – but the salads and sandwiches are equally delicious. Flatbread’s “Pick Two” lunch option – you can choose from a pizzetta, half sandwich, half salad, mac & cheese and tomato basil soup – is a great way to sample multiple menu items.
Greg’s Grill on the Deschutes
Our go-to spot for classic Northwest cuisine – think choice-cut steaks and and slow-roasted chicken – Greg’s utilizes an Applewood mesquite rotisserie that makes everything ridiculously good. A longtime Bend favorite for lunch and dinner, Greg’s now offers breakfast on the weekends from 8 to 11 a.m. Go with the French toast for sweet and the prime rib hash for savory.
Get festive at Hola!, proud home to an amazing array of Mexican and Peruvian dishes and drinks. Start with the ceviche, gorge on shrimp al tequila and wash it all down with margaritas made from Hola!’s own private label of Patron tequila. Looking for a great Mexican-style ale? Hola! also boasts its own craft beer, Tranquilo.
Level 2 Global Food & Lounge
The creativity coming out of the kitchen and bar at Level 2 is astounding. Located on the second floor of the gorgeous historic Brooks-Scanlon fuel building, Level 2 thrives on creating small plates, entrées and specialty cocktails influenced by international recipes and traditions. The banh mi sandwich highlights the lunch menu, as does the house salad made with fresh strawberries, chèvre, candied pecans and shaved red onions. At dinner, try the chicken saltimbocca, a tender chicken breast covered with prosciutto and swiss cheese.
Mio Sushi (pictured below)
Yes, the High Desert is home to some amazing sushi, sashimi and unagi donburi. With Mio, you’ll enjoy
a mix of traditional Japanese recipes and innovative dishes inspired by the food and tastes of the Pacific Northwest. Mio’s kitchen excels at classic small plates like salmon and tuna nigiri, but also shines with bold dishes like its Mt. Hood roll, made with shrimp tempura, crab, avocado, spicy salmon and jalapeno.
A family favorite, Pastini indulges two of our greatest loves: pasta and wine. Inspired by the farms, vineyards and waterways of the Pacific Northwest, Pastini serves up more than 30 different pasta dishes. They also serve up standout paninis and sandwiches – the tomato and fresh mozzarella panini is divine – and their wine list is one of the best in Bend.
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews
Great burgers, great beers and great views along the Deschutes River make Red Robin a place just about everyone can rally around. Looking for something sweet, maybe for a late-night date or as a special treat for a little one? Red Robin’s dessert menu includes a chocolate brownie cake covered with ice cream and hot fudge, a mud pie that’s almost as high as Mount Bachelor and a towering stack of mini donuts.
Kona Mix Plate (pictured below)
We love everything about traditional Hawaiian mix plates and no one does it better than Kona. Yes, happiness is bulgogi, kalua pork and volcano chicken stuffed on to one plate with a huge helping of Kona’s famous PotatoMac salad. Really hungry? Try the Hawaiian favorite Loco Moco, a homemade beef patty served on a bed of rice, topped with gravy and two eggs cooked over easy.
