Tina's

Tinas opened in October 1991. The restaurant, which seats 55 guests, has a comfortable bar, and the two intimate dining rooms are divided by a fireplace. Like many of our fellow chefs, we believe that the best food is organically grown. Our search for these foods led us out of the city and into the countryside where we work closely with a great group of farmers. We're closer to the source of what goes onto your plate, and we believe that the opportunity to cook in a wine growing region lends our food a context and flavor and experience that is unbeatable. The menu is based on the foods that our farmer/neighbors grow: seasonal, and regional. Most of the wines that we feature come from just down the road. We are committed to using the best ingredients, and our menu changes as we move through the seasons of the year. Under New Ownership since June 13, 2015, Tina's continues to be a Wine Country Standard, not to be missed. Long time, veteran employees Dwight McFaddin (22yrs), and Michael Stiller (14 years) and their wives have re-energized the Restaurant and have lured back Chef Norma Buchholz (6 yrs) to create a new environment based on all that is best about Tina's and the Wine Country of Yamhill County.

We've probably been here about 5 times and it is always a great experience. Charming interior with a fireplace. Food is always excellent and inventive. Good wine selection and friendly staff.

Joel Palmer House

Our family business took shape when my great-grandfather, Joseph Czarnecki, opened Joe's Tavern in 1916 in Reading, Pennsylvania. His son, Joseph Jr., carried on the tradition, transforming the original tavern into Joe's Restaurant and changing the focus to fine dining and wine with wild mushrooms (a family passion) as the centerpiece. My father, Jack Czarnecki, followed in his father's footsteps, taking Joe's Restaurant to a new level while maintaining the mushroom theme. Despite the success of Joe's, our family's lifelong desire was to combine great mushroom hunting with fine wine. This dream was fully realized in 1996 when my parents, Jack & Heidi, purchased The Joel Palmer House and moved the family and the restaurant west. Our cooking revolves around wild mushrooms and truffles which we gather ourselves and with friends. We have always striven to obtain locally raised ingredients in our cooking, and we use many locally produced greens, herbs, and vegetables. Frequently we will use ingredients found in the cuisines of Mexico, China, Thailand, Poland, and India, so we call our cooking, “freestyle”. And, of course, we are working hard to create dishes which match the glorious wines of Oregon, especially Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay.

We eat here three years ago and could not wait to return. We were disappointed...the mushroom soup was watery and had little mushroom flavor. It was served in a small bowl-like taurine without the beautiful white cream mushroom design. The mushroom tart lacked density and was "floating" on a thick brown mushroom gravy. The mushroom Risotto was overcooked to the point of having the texture of overcooked rice. The service was great...Andrew was on his game, as was the "bread lady!" Off night? JPH was not that busy. Sadly, it seems JPH has lost the luster it had brightly demonstrated three years ago.

Painted Lady

Reviewed By JTB4 - Mill Valley, California

Extremely high quality fine dining experience. I ahve had the same quality in major cities for two or three times the price. 10 course tasting menu with or without wine flight is fantastic. Prepare for at least a two hour experience. Don;t be daunted by the small tastes...you get pretty full by the time #8 comes around. Their signature crab dish is insanely good. Always changing and inventive. Go midweek on the off-season to try their new creations at a bit of a discount.

Antonio's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Tony F

We are locals so, perhaps, a little critical. In years past we would frequent Antonios weekly. When new owners took over a while back things changed a lot and our visits became less and less frequent as menu items declined in variety and quality.

Service also rapidly declined with a new waitress who didn't know the menu or details of the food every other time we visited.

Last night we had out of town guests who are Italian and they wanted to try it so we gave it another stab. Unfortunately, we were all extremely disappointed.

The waitress was, apparently, new and had our drinks totally mixed up as well as our meals including one order that was completely wrong.

When ordering, my guest asked if the iced tea was instant or brewed and whether or not it was fresh. The waitress, literally, rolled her eyes as if his question was absurd. When the iced tea arrived it tasted terrible and the lemons were brown and stale.

When she delivered the other drinks the waitress put a glass in front of me and said, "I think that's the diet..." I, as a diabetic, was served the Coke with sugar.

We returned one set of silverware that was dirty and my guest had to ask for a spoon for his soup twice.

My salad, which I requested with oil and vinegar, came plain and we never received the oil/vinegar and, by then, we were so frustrated I was not going to "impose" upon her and wait for it.

This will have been our last visit to Antonio's, with regret for what was once an excellent establishment.

Reviewed By DCTerry - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Definitely stop here for breakfast and/or lunch. The breakfast sandwich (on multigrain) is delish. Coffee good. We sampled several pastries, which were all great. Recommend the pan au chocolate (with and without strawberries). We did take out lunch to eat while at wineries-- that worked really well and the sandwiches were fantastic!!

Archie's Ice Cream Shoppe

Reviewed By cybercme - Eureka, CA

Archie's offers burgers, no fries, and a range of deli sandwiches.

The quality of the food is certainly more than the price! And next-door is an ice cream shop that has amazing flavors and the best milkshake I have ever had,

Today's special milkshake, for only five dollars, was a Marionberru milkshake made with berries were picked this morning from a nearby farm. There were so many berries
in the shake that it was like drinking berry nectar... An amazing summer treat in 90° weather

I just learned that Dayton has every Friday evening. at 6 PM during the summer, an outdoor concert and classic car cruise. If anybody longs to see how life was 50 years ago, Dayton Oregon is your place.

Or cheese was a great stop for great food

Reviewed By luv2trvlRedondoBeach - Redondo Beach, California

We were heading from the coast to Forest Grove and we were looking for a place to eat a late lunch/early dinner before our flight home. As we neared Forest Grove we were running out of options. Tripadviser lead us to this quaint restaurant.

The GPS sent us on dirt roads....and my husband was getting frustrated. Finally we decided we must be heading to a vineyard, which could be problematic since we do not drink alcohol. We continued on, and ultimately arrived at AgriVino, which is in the middle of farmland. The fall colors on the grapevines in the rolling hills is spectacular. The hills are ablaze in golds. If only the restaurant's windows faced the beauty of the area, instead of the parking lot.

On entering Agrivino we thought we were in a wine tasting room. There are a small number of tables in the center of the room, a wine tasting bar at one end, and wine bottles along a side wall. The restaurant is quite unique, and very relaxing. We were asked about reservations and we advised we were driving through the area looking for a quick bite to eat before dropping our daughter off at college and heading to the airport. We were told the tables were all booked, but since we were early, and only looking for a quick bite to eat, they could accommodate us before the tables filled.

It was Pizza and Gnocchi night. We enjoyed their l pizza of the day, a special cheese and salami, along with a pizza with prosciutto and asparagus. We ordered a bolognese gnocchi. While the friendly waitress recommended three dishes, in actuality one pizza and the gnocchi would have been enough. The gnocchi serving isn't large but it was enough for each of us to have a small portion. I don't usually like gnocchi, but I loved Dario's gnocchi. The pizza tasted just like in Italy. The crust was light and the tomato sauce wasn't overpowering. My daughter ended up taking home the left over pizza.

We were just about to pay the bill when Dario came over and I mentioned I felt like I had made a quick trip to Italy and the food was so good. He mentioned the wine in Italy and we advised we don't drink, instead we love to eat homemade Gelato. We learned they have a contract with a gelato maker and they recommended the Black Forest Gelato, triple chocolate and cherries. Oh my goodness it was heaven. My husband enjoyed Nutella gelato, and he said it was as good as our favorite gelato in Rome.

My husband was so glad he continued on the dirt road. We really felt as though we spent an hour in Italy. It was pure heaven.

Reviewed By stefanop54 - Victoria, Canada

Four of us stopped by the Horse Radish based upon a recommendation from our B&B. We were not disappointed with our choice of the lunch special. As a matter of fact we enjoyed the butternut squash/apple soup so much, my wife made that same recipe upon our return home. Two of us had the corned beef sandwich which was delicious and brought back fond memories of New York. Coffee was excellent and not scalding as many restaurants serve their coffee too hot. The washrooms were clean and well maintained. Excellent choice for lunch and we would return.
