We really enjoy listening to Shirley Nanette and her band on Sunday evenings at Billy Webb's. She adds to the welcoming atmosphere and enjoyment and the hours of 6-9pm are perfect for us. Thank you for keeping her; I wish it were still weekly.
Gratefully, Barbara L.
Very nice outdoor venue.
Located on the lodge's second floor, the restaurant consists of two high-ceilinged dining rooms. The first features a slanted ceiling and walls of glass which provide a clear view of the falls. The second room, done in dark stone walls and an espresso colored wood beam ceiling, offers diners the coziness of a wood burning fireplace. Given the grandeur of the rooms and the restaurant's promise of, "upscale Northwest style cuisine with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients," I figured we were in for a real treat.
Lunches are served with; Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, or French Fries; and a spear of dill pickle. I ordered the Smoked Salmon Salad Sandwich & Fries for $12.50 and a Widmer Hefeweizen for $4.50, and she had the Reuben & Fries also for $12.50.
Smoked Salmon Salad Sandwich - I live by a set of culinary rules. One such rule dictates that something called a "Smoked Salmon Salad Sandwich" should, at least vaguely, taste like salmon, smoked or otherwise. What I got was an orange heap of mayonnaise based glop, a piece of Swiss Cheese, and some lettuce between two mayonnaise slathered pieces of bread. I wouldn't have minded the thickly applied "salad" oozing from the sandwich after every bite, if it had actually tasted like SOMETHING. While "cold' isn't generally thought of as a flavor, if pushed to describe the taste of the sandwich, cold and mushy are the only words that accurately describe what I ate...

If you are severely handicapped and can't walk and have to use a cane or a scooter do not move into the Sacred Heart Villa. The manager will try to evict you, and my friend is very very very ill. He has not had any sleep, or a place to park his car in a handicapped parking place in the garage.. He has lived there for over a year and the manager never gave him a spot until 3 months ago. Then she says here park in any space in the garage. His doctor sent him a note to get a handicapped space in the garage. In the garage when he moved in was 1 spot (handicapped) close to the door to get into the building when he moved in. She said you can have that space, but then she said to another resident in the building take it now before this other resident gets it. This new resident moved in 5 months after my friend did and he never got that spot. He is more severly handicapped then the one who got that spot. If you have seen discrimination there is the proof. This manager has broken every rule in the books, She is a crook and a criminal who has given out keys to other tenants to steal from other tenants. Her husband has been caught on video tape trying to break into an apartment and steal anything they can. My friend has had pants and towels and other clothing that I gave him stolen on a daily basis and sold to a thrift store for money for drugs by a tenant in the building. My friend has had a tampon put into his tomato juice but pushed to the bottom of the container. So when he opened it up it had a very stenching smell. The tenants have also trained his dog so he will not drink or eat from any dish in the apartment, So he has to hand feed him eery day on the hour. If you leave your apaprtment for any length of time expect to have things missing including money or id theft, She has convicted criminals or on parolle living in these apartments. She has locked my friend out of his apartment overnight on 9/30/2011 he had no place to park his car and no way to get into the building. So he had himself and his dog sleeping in his car all night long. THIS MANAGER AND CASCADE MANAGEMENT NEED TO BE TAUGHT A LESSON, THEY NEED TO FIRE INGRID AND HER ILLEGAL HUSBAND, She needs to go to jail and have a record put into her name forever, and shall never be hired ever again to manage anything for as long as she lives. LET ALL YOUR FRIENDS KNOW ABOUT SACRED HEART VILLA APARTMENTS AND THE WAY THE CATHOLIC CHARATIES AND FEDERAL MONEY FOR LOW INCOME PEOPLE IS HANDLED AND SPENT.I BOUGHT A SECURITY LOCK TO KEEP ANY PERSON FROM COMING INTO HIS PLACE AND THEY BENT THAT SO BAD THAT WE CALLED THE POLICE, THE WROTE OUT OUT A REPORT AND SHOWED IT TO THE MANAGER AND SHE PAID THEM UNDER THE TABLE TO LEAVE IT ALONE. PLEASE DO NOT WATE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PLACE IT IS A PLACE FOR CRIMINALS AND NOT YOU.
I love this place but I always seem to forget my asthma inhaler and about 2 miles in live tor regret it, hehe, the dogs love the river and we went there last weeked, which was kind of a bummer because the mud buildup along the river this year smelled horrid....heehee.
Other than that it was awesome and I absolutely loved taking the dogs on a hike through the woods and then seeing my Bleu Heeler/black lab mix run along the shoreline in a z pattern in and out of the water! The weather was perfect and we had a nice time, saw some cool horses and a wide variety of other dogs! Now if only they had a transportation back to parking lot after I started wheezing my brains out, lol!
Great place, changing every day,,,BridgeTown Comedy thought this was the best place to do their show,,,come on down and have Fish & Chips every Friday

It'd be better if someone got the pranksters to come up for another go round

Gay Fair at the Square
"A Coming Out Celebration for the LGBT Community'
October 3, 2009, 1pm-5pm
Pioneer Courthouse Square
Do you know someone who is considering coming out, newly out, new to town, or simply looking to expand their horizons? Please encourage them to attend this celebration and information fair.
The Portland Gay Men's Chorus is sponsoring Gay Fair at the Square, an afternoon of music and conversation with many of Portland's LGBT non-profit groups, on Saturday, October 3, 2009. The informational fair will take place at Pioneer Square from 1pm to 5pm.
The 125 member Chorus will perform selections from our recently recorded CD On Broadway, plus other favorites from our repertoire at 3:00pm. This is the kickoff event for the Chorus' new season, "30 Years of Opening Hearts and Minds."
Gay Fair at the Square will showcase the best of Portland's LGBT community. Dozens of groups, including Cascade Aids Project, GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network), the Q Center, gay sports and arts groups, social and student groups and many others will have representatives and informational booths on the Square.
Preceding National Coming Out Day on October 11th, Gay Fair at the Square is intended to provide information about many of the activities, and non-profit groups, available to Portland's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered community. The afternoon will be an enlightening opportunity for those who are considering coming out, newly out, new to town, or simply looking to expand their horizons.
It was a beautiful evening in a beautiful setting with wonderful music provided by the Providence Stage Band under the direction of Larry Morrell. The band sounds better than ever!

Okay, seriously. I don't know why the rest of you don't join the lodge. We raise $$ for charities like the Oregon Food Bank and the Giving Tree; the booze is cheap; friendly service; free wife, and very soon a public computer terminal; pool tables, shuffleboard, Golden Tee; and hey, if you're not sold yet, we've got live bingo action and square dancing.
I like it because it's close... but really only the south end of the park seems like a park. It's fun to drop in on a little league game and have a hot dog or pretzel ...but there's really no where to sit in peace and just be, enjoying attractive surroundings. You have to be actively walking, and even then, there really aren't any inviting paths through the park.
The open lawn area is brown and unmaintained and generally littered by the endless soccer game attendees. The pic-nic tables are all stuck out by the busy street - other than the new ones that came in with the little league.
There's one nice shady sitting spot on the ridge just above the dog park. I shouldn't really be divulging this - but I hope it helps.
I absolutely love the 4 artists playing in Three Girls and Their Buddy. I was so excited to attend until I got all my picnic supplies ready, hiked 1 mile to the show because of the poor parking only to be told no food or beverage was allowed. That was after I had to meander through Oaks Park because there was no signage as to where the show was. I went online before the show to make sure we could bring food/drinks, but there was nothing about it. I did call about bringing the dog and they said the poster says no. I proceeded to wait in the beer line for 30 minutes while the show started and I had to sit behind some high chairs which were the only thing online that said were not allowed. I then waited in line for food for 20 minutes and then got in another line for 10 minutes for water. They needed more water! The sound quality was terrible as well. I know I'm sounding like a broken record, now, but for the kind of money for tickets I expect a better show. The artists were fantastic, but Oaks Park should stick to rides not concerts.
It is a public square with rigid draconian laws and corporate sponsorships plastered across it at every possible opportunity. Why are religious proselytizers allowed to yell at us eating lunch, but you can't hold a rally here for a war without a permit?
