Golf Driving Range
$$
“Fun day for everyone! Make a game of the fully automated driving range while eating some great food and enjoying a drink. ”
  • 18 locals recommend
Brewery
$$
“If you are not from Oregon or SW Washington, the name McMenamins probably doesn't mean much to you. They are a restaurant, microbrewery and a cool place all rolled into one. They specialize in restoring historic buildings and converting them to restaurants. This is a great place to get introduced to their beers and wines. Surprisingly, it is a great place for families and kids. Excellent food (not super expensive), outdoor seating (for the summer), outdoor covered heating with fireplace pits for winter and all year around in the historic building. If you can't decide on dinner, then this is the place for you. Average dish is around $10-$15. Great burgers and salads. ”

“Full French restaurant and bakery. One of the best places on the west side.”

Japanese Restaurant
$$
“Was listed as one of the best Japanese restaurants in the country from a 2006 Zagat survey. An izayaka is a type of informal Japanese pub. They are casual places for after-work drinking. So HUGE saki selection and the food is made in a "tapas" style format. Many small plates of very tasty food. Expect to spend from $11-$30 on food. Pro tip" Get the gyu tataki (seared beef in ponzu sauce), trust me - you will thank me later. ”
