History

McMenamins on the Columbia has one of the best atmospheres this area has to offer. In almost every direction the place is hemmed in by a display of natural beauty. True, the Columbia's powerful, hypnotic flow is a spectacular backdrop for enjoying great conversation along with good food and drink, but its steady pace also recalls the ceaseless march of time. Located in what was the famed Kaiser shipyard of WWII, and bordered by the old SP&S railroad, Fort Vancouver and the Columbia River, the spot teems with remarkable history, its story as deep and impressive as the river itself....

Built on the former site of a WWII shipyard, McMenamins on the Columbia commemorates its location's place in history.
