We received a gift certificate as a Christmas present from my wife's brother and his family for this place and eagerly anticipated spring to use it. We were not disappointed. Our room(One of the more economic choices) had a wrap around deck with a view of the vineyards below and a sweeping vista of the valley, a very nice bathroom and a real wood burning fireplace. The main house is nicely appointed and there are lots of little settee areas around the grounds where one can take a glass of complimentary wine and enjoy the awesome view and surroundings. The cat and dog were wonderfully friendly and added to the positive experience. The cookie jar was stocked with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and yes, I can attest they go just perfectly with the locally made Pinot Noir. Breakfast was freshly made Belgian waffles with apple compote, maple syrup and bacon, all quite delicious! Joan is a wonderful host and a beautiful classy lady. Pricing for these rooms is very in-line with similar B & B's but the view is much better. I could highly recommend this place for a weekend in wine country.
Stayed here last week. First the good news -- this is a perfect location for touring wine country. It's centrally located, with a short drive to all of wine country and a couple of the top wineries -- Domain Serene and Domain Drouhin - literally within walking distance. it's also very comfortable, and much more than "just" a B&B. There are horses to ride, vineyards to walk through, a grand piano downstairs, a hot tub, steam room, great views, and plenty of parking. Great WiFi connection and decent download speeds. This would also be a great place for a wedding, and we saw how they do that while we were there -- I'm sure that was a great day! Now, the not-so-good stuff... Our room, the Vineyard, had a tiny balcony with no real view due to large trees on the property. The other windows in our room (which is part of a 3 room addition built out of an old stable) were too high to afford us a view of the valley. The bed was a squeaky, iron-framed canopy bed. The water went out one morning for about 3 hours, right before breakfast. The satellite TV isn't configured right, so you'll get HBO and local channels, but no CNN or Weather Channel -- kinda makes it hard to stay connected to stuff going on back home. The wine (a free glass the first night) is okay, but you'll get spoiled by the wines elsewhere, so plan on bringing an extra bottle back with you to enjoy outside on the patio or balcony. There's a kitchen in barn/stable converted to additional rooms, but it's for the caterers who service the weddings and meetings on-site, so don't expect it to be too clean. There's also a fridge in that kitchen (none in the rooms), but no way to secure anything, so be careful where you leave your Tillamook cheese -- or at least mark it well! Breakfast is good, but not on a par with some of the other B&Bs we've been to. The menu tends to repeat after the second day... But if you like waffles with tons of fresh fruit and cream, scrambled eggs with crispy bacon and sausages, you won't be disappointed. At $200 a night, we were expecting a little bit more. It would have been nice to have some kind of wine service are in the room, considering why most folks are there. A couple of clean glasses, a bottle opener and maybe a cutting board and knife would have been nice. A nightly wine tasting would have been great. There's got to be someone around there who would coordinate that for the B&Bs -- what a great way to show off your wine to visitors! Coupons to local restaurants would have been nice. There was a book of menus, but no notes from anyone on what was good -- or bad. [Thank you Yelpers!] I would have appreciated it if the doors would have been locked after the cleaning crew finished, especially considering the quantity of expensive wine we had in the room and my laptop computer -- although the owner assured me "We never lock our doors up here!" I think I've seen those words in one or two headlines, haven't I? But this review is tending towards whining now (pun intended), and I do want to say that Joan is a gracious host and she has a very well-organized and comfortable B&B. You can do much worse when choosing lodging. I recommend at least a night here... [Insider tip: If you are in the add-on building, there's a coffee maker in the downstairs kitchen that will be ready to make coffee when you get up - just hit the button, so you won't have to wait for the 8am coffee in the main house. Don't forget to make a fresh pot if you drink it all.]
This was our last stop of the day. Place had a cellar and also a bed and breakfast where we decided to spend the night. Views were spectacular looking over the vines and surrounding rural area. Grounds were immaculately maintained and included many sitting areas allowing you to fade into the country landscape. Weather could not have been more beautiful. We were greeted by Joan, the gracious host, that showed us around the compound of living rooms, common sitting areas, kitchen and breakfast area, including the jacuzzi and sauna. Extremely charming, with walls adorned with Joan's family pictures through the decades. We met Joan at the nearby cellar, as all new guests get a complimentary wine tasting and choice of one full glass the evening of their arrival. The chardonnay and pinot reserve showed promise, however the remaining were uninspiring. Regardless, we were able to socialize with two other couples from Vancouver, B.C. and Florida. Our room was the Yamhill, which was on the second floor among four other rooms. Being among the cheaper rooms of the bunch at $150, we had one small window that overlooked the entrance and gardens near the pavilion. Decorated in a cute country motif with a stuffed brown bear as our mascot we named Merlot. Room was very clean, King bed was very comfortable and the night was extremely quiet. Breakfast was downstairs at 9, with coffee available at 8. You could hear neighboring guests rustling around by 7. Family style breakfast was ample with fresh fruit and cream, eggs with a cheese sauce, homemade biscuits and hash browns. A perfect way to start off our day. A highly recommended country oasis to top off your wine tasting escapades.

Local Mexican lunch. For two, full lunches:$13.50 Ordered the chicken tamales, freshly made by the owner. Yummy.
It was good when I was a child and didn't know any better. They don't care anymore and nor do I.
Lupita's is the place to go in Downtown Dayton. They close for a month every winter and the people in Dayton wait anxiously for them to reopen when they get back from their trips to Mexico. The food is great. The people are helpful. You can practice your Spanish when you order or just listen to the people at the table next to you. For a real treat, order some horchata with your meal.

Hard to believe that we could miss a finding a restaurant in Dayton, but we did. Stopped by the Joel Palmer House for directions and the wait staff had to go ask someone in the kitchen for directions...that should have told us all we needed to know, but we continued. The Barlow Room has a very nice look - expansive back bar, brick walls. The wood chairs are incredibly uncomfortable - does anyone sit in these things before purchase? When we arrived for our reservations on a Saturday night, it appeared that the prior patrons had arrived at various stages - and not many came after us until we were ready to leave. Outside of one wait staff person, most were clueless. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen (appeared to be 3 people working in the kitchen), but we waited an hour for our meal. Beverage service was timely - thank goodness! One of us ordered the mushroom soup, which was delicious. However, when asked if we could get some bread with the soup, we were told that there was not enough bread to give out with the soup - just enough for the sandwiches. Bizarre. Chicken breast in thyme jus had potential, but someone should have taken it out of the crockpot about an hour earlier. Seriously - over done chicken that tastes like it came from a crockpot for $19! The other entree ordered was the mushroom pasta. What came to the table an hour later was the shrimp pasta. They were going to replace it, but who has that kind of time! Thankfully they did not charge us for that entree. This is a disappointment from a place that should have so much potential. The Barlow Room has been open for about 7 weeks - how can it be that it seems like opening week for them. We will have to hear some stunning reviews before venturing back - which is so unfortunate.
Please don't waist your time. The food is ok but the headache of dealing with people who don't know how to run a business is not worth it. I came with a group of 9 on Saturday 6/27 for a bachelorette party. We made reservations ahead of time and even showed up early. We weren't a rowdy bunch (no sashes, matching tees, or tiaras) but we had been wine tasting previously. The space and decor are really nice but the service was terrible. Everyone ordered their first round of drinks. The waiter came back to get the bachelorette's order because she couldn't decided and then 20 minutes went by and still no drink. There were other customers in the restaurant but not enough that they couldn't make 1 drink in a timely manner. We kept asking about it and they said it was coming. I think she finally got it 30 minutes after ordering. At this same time another waiter came to our table and told us that the last waiter didn't actually work at the restaurant and one of the items we ordered was not available. Um, what? Did the waiter get fired, did he randomly walk off the street and decided he need a career change? Finally after a long while of waiting food started to come out. We got soups and salads. 3 out of the 9 of us ordered salads as their entrees (I was one of the 3). So we patiently waited with our entrees in front of us for everyone else's food to arrive. A bus boy came over while we were waiting and asked one of the girls if she wanted a box for her salad, she replied, "no. we're still waiting on everyone else's food." He walked off and not more then 10 minutes later he came back. He asked the same girl if he could clear her plate. Again, she said, "no. we're waiting on everyone's food." At this point we were getting mad. There was another bachelorette party in the restaurant and even thought they came in after us they got their food before our table. Finally an hour and a half after ordering the remaining entrees began to come out. There were a couple orders that were incorrect, but they were able to fix them quickly. The last two people were waiting for their food and a waitress brings two burgers to another table. The table of four was obviously done eating drinking and were about to leave. With only about 10 tables in the entire place how do you not know one of the tables already paid and is leaving? They refused the burgers, which were then brought to us and everyone finally could eat. The food was meh. I would have rather drove the hour back to Portland and spent our money some where else (anywhere else). They didn't take off any meals/drinks and they didn't even apologize. They just kept making excuses. The blame was placed on the phantom original waiter. I hate excuses. I've worked customer service and no one cares who's fault it is, just fix it!!! To top it off the Barlow Room automatically adds 18% to your bill. Not because we were a group over 6 people but because that's how they treat everyone. We didn't argue this because, it wasn't worth it. We wanted to get as far away from the place as possible. I'm not from a small town and I've never been a waitress but I hope this is not how all the places in Dayton work. I don't understand how you can be and stay in business.
Arrived in Dayton after a long drive. Really didn't want to drive too far for dinner. Found the Barlow Room just a short distance away. Our server, Russell, greeted us right away and his easy manner put us right at ease. We ordered the pork belly appetizer which was delicious. The salads were really good with a nice balance of dressing. Our entrees, the pulled pork and pesto shrimp, were so good looking and tasted even better. I asked Russell to recommend a wine to pair with the pulled pork. He did not recommend the most expensive wine but one the truly paired well with the entrée. We felt relaxed throughout dinner and enjoyed learning more about the local area from Russell. Would definitely go back again! Thanks for a great evening :-)

Disgusting pizza. The cheapest ingredients are probably used in this place, including canned mushrooms that were the consistency of rubber. I felt ill after eating the food, I will not be consuming anything from this place ever again. I suggest you avoid it like the plague if you have any taste buds. Customer service was lacking as well the lady who took my order seemed put out and unfriendly on the phone and I can only assume it was the same lady who delivered the pizza because she had nothing to say, but don't worry the massive cold soar on her lip spoke volumes!
I loved this place. I went on a date yesterday and we decided to go on an adventure and head out to Dayton on a whim. Not much was open on a Sunday night in the way of food, but this place was good to go until 9pm! This one building has a dive bar, convenience store and pizzeria in it, and doesn't look like much more than a dive when you walk in. You order the pizza in the convenience store side, and there are a few plastic tables in the middle of coolers full of soda and an aisle full of cleaning products. But the nicest guy owns the place and the food is DELICIOUS. One of the best pizzas I have ever had, and definitely some of the best in Oregon. We ordered the Coliseum, with Pepperoni, Olives, Peppers, Mushrooms, Sausage and Tomatoes and it was to die for. All of the veggies were local and very fresh. I watched the guy slice them up right after I ordered. It is worth getting the giant sized pizza if you want leftovers, and the price is right. The giant version was only $16.99! Not the place to go if you are looking for fine dining, but if good food is what you're after I highly recommend it. There is a also a park across the street if you want to do more of a picnic thing.
these people are the best! the pie i ordered for my newly wed son and daughter in law was cooked to perfection. the kids sent me a picture, oh yummy, the folks at romans went out of their way to help me and i am 1800 miles away, they were a wonderful help. thank you so much, may god continue to bless your business and each of you. grazie mille. Dio ti benedica.
