Welcome back, Damsite Restaurant!

That means you can enjoy beautiful views—of the water, the Dam Site Marina, and the Butte for which the lake and city are named—while you dine inside or out on the patio.

There are lots of appetizers to get your meal started – nachos, wings, onion rings, fried pickles, jalapeno poppers and more. Entrees include Angus beef burgers (including green chile cheeseburgers), hot dogs, pizza, and steak. The Friday night special is all you can eat spaghetti with meat sauce with salad and dinner roll. The restaurant has applied for a liquor license. Restaurant hours are Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

New Restaurant Coming to Happy Belly Deli Location

It’s always sad to see one of our restaurants close, but a taqueria will be opening soon at the former Happy Belly Deli location on Broadway in downtown T or C. The patio is being renovated and the restaurant will be freshened up too. A June opening is anticipated.


In other closure news, the Barbershop Cafe in Hillsboro has shuttered, and the Consignment Store that was in the next door space went with it. With Black Range Vineyards folding last month, that only leaves the General Store Cafe to feed folks traveling through Hillsboro. The good news is – the General Store Cafe is and always has been amazing! So – go and enjoy.
