“I stopped in while tracing along the shores Sandy River on the way back to the city from the waterfalls. Its nestled in on the winding mountain road in the countryside. The atmosphere was warm and Tommy did a great job of making a lone traveler feel welcome. The dumpling is in the name so I had to try it, I was not disappointed it was fantastic! Definitely would go back next time I am in the area! Well done!” -(Local Guide, Google Reviews Feb 2019)

Tad’s is our favorite restaurant. I’ve been eating here for probably forty years. The signature chicken and dumplins are great but the pan fried chicken is even better. You can get a dumplin in a bowl with gravy instead of a potato and I highly recommend that you do so with any meal. They are fluffy clouds of heaven with a rich chicken gravy. Their steaks are good and their salmon better. Prime rib can be the special on weekend and it is good too. Their drinks are reasonable and not watered down. Their creamy dill salad dressing is better than ranch. You sometimes have to wait for a table but it is well worth it, there is a cute little bar downstairs. Tad’s is an institution in Troutdale that is worth the drive from anywhere in the Portland area. The historic building and location alone are worth the drive.” [ L.G. Yelp.com, 3/06/11 ]

“My wife and I were capping off our Oregon coast vacation and heading back the next day, so took the scenic loop to see Multnomah Falls and the other falls along scenic Hwy 30. We happened across this place and thought “dumplings… in Oregon?”. It happened to be highly rated, so we stopped in later for dinner. Wow. It was excellent! We visited around 7:30 on a Tuesday and were seated next to the river. A calming view and some nice summer evening air. I had the chicken and dumplings, my wife had the scallops. Both very good choices. The dumplings are about the size of a softball and I think I got half a chicken in there. I think I could eat on that for a couple days. Probably most of the chicken dishes could be shared. Then we topped it off with some marionberry cobbler and homemade ice cream. Great service for the whole meal. And at a very reasonable price. An excellent ending to our vacation.” [ C.H. Trip Advisor.com, 8/ 30/12 ]
