my adventurous 12 y/o daughter and i just got back from a whitewater rafting trip down the rogue river in oregon. we stayed the night before and the night of our return at the buckhorn mountain lodge. what a great find! lynn and will, the hosts, have built a beautiful, small lodge with multiple independent quarters on a breathtaking piece of property. we stayed in the bear paw tent cabin. it was spectuacular, comfortable, light and airy with two canopied queen beds, a porch with a swing and a separate sitting area. elegance in the forest! lynn and will are excellent company and lynn's breakfast was beautifully presented in the main house and scrumptious to boot. a private multicourse gourmet dinner in their beautiful dining room can also be arranged for a minimum of 8 people. lynn was flexible and had breakfast ready for our crack of dawn departure and even offered to drive us to the meeting place for the river trip. we enjoyed ourselves both before and aft r our 4 day rafting experience by relaxing in our beautiful tent cabin, playing pool, wandering the grounds picking blackberries and watching the deer! we'll be back! buckhornmountainlodge.com

Visiting parents who live in Grants Pass they raved about breakfast so we came. It was delicious. The ham was amazing. Looking over the menu we saw gourmet burgers (parents only ever ate breakfast here). Embarrassed to say we came back for dinner!!! We were not disappointed. Burgers on ciabatta rolls with riffle sauce (don't know what's in it but loved it). Only here a few days from California but will always come here when in town.
Had the Hellgate omelette. Very good. Could have used a little more gravy. One server for the entire place. So it took a while each time we saw her. Overall just okay.
A cold, foggy winter's ride on the Rumble Bee to Merlin found the restaurant with a family and there old, gossipy codgers to which one more was added. Later a couple came in with matching MacBooks they used although the restaurant doesn't have wifi. One of the codgers, not me, wondered if they were emailing each other. I ate the blue cheese & mushroom burger on a ciabatta bun with split pea soup. The burger was good but a bit messy so I used knife and folk on the second half. The soup was a liquid with what looked and tasted like bits of franks floating around. Coffee a little better than at most diners.

The cinnamon rolls here are amazing, absolutely amazing. Also, they're about the size of your head...if you have a very large head.

While on vacation in Merlin and staying at the Doubletree Ranch, we went to River Grill each morning for breakfast. Our waitress, Laurinda, was excellent and very personable and the food was done perfectly every time. Great experience!
We had breakfast. Nice and clean, food was pretty darn tasty. Good service. Who needs more than that?
The waitress and good food make this our restaurant of choice. Fridays we enjoy the fish and chips with a cup of chowder. Breakfast is consistently non greasy and seems made from fresh ingredients.

‘lil Pantry Market & Deli

Reviews:
I'm not sure what the other person reviewing Lil Pantry was expecting, but since I've lived in the area for over 20 years as well, and I loved Dave the previous owner, I have to say the place is head and shoulders a much nicer store now. Dave never served Pizza that I was aware of, only the usual deep fried array of Corn Dogs, Jo Jo Fries, Chicken Strips, Chimis, Burritos etc... Nothing special, just deep fried mini market food. There was even a French lady there for years that put celery in everything like lasagne and spaghetti! Yuck! Since being bought by Dale the store has been fully remodeled and refaced, It's clean, classy and modern for a mini market, and the Deli has actually expanded quite a bit. Sure it would be great to have a gourmet pizza, but seriously, it's a Mini Market?? They do what a Mini Market does best and provide a huge selection of Beer, Soda, Energy Drinks, Candy, and a few of the last second "I don't want to drive to Grants Pass" items to get you by in a pinch like a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread. The sandwiches aren't bad, the breakfast egg muffins and burritos are awful and turn into instant gut bombs, but again, it's a MINI MARKET. I'm glad that Dale invested in this little store, and it's a very well laid out and convenient market to grab a few essentials.
Just got a sandwich from the new location in Rosburg and it is garbage 8 dollars for a dry piece of bread and one lousy thin piece of meat. I've been getting sandwiches at lil pantry for years but the inconstancy is terrible. I asked the lady if she was going to weight the meat and she replied "oh I've been doing this a year I can eyeball it." ?!?!? And the result is a crap sandwich with little to no meat on it. Waist of time and money.
Not a friendly place, never a smile. They must not be happy working there. This is mainly the deli .
