Cascade Dining Room
A pioneering spirit of craftsmanship paired with a deep-rooted connection to the region inspires our culinary program, which is showcased fully in our Cascade Dining Room.

Led by celebrated Chef Jason Stoller Smith, all of our dining programs strive to create a sustainable farm-to-table relationship with the land around Mt. Hood. Our award-winning wine program is renowned for curating the finest wines in the Pacific Northwest. The Cascade Dining Room serves a breakfast buffet, our famous “Taste of Oregon” lunch buffet, and fine-dining dinner service.

Blue Ox Bar
Once you find the Blue Ox Bar, you’ll find it hard to leave. Cozily tucked away just behind the main lobby, it’s a favorite hole-in-the-wall watering hole steeped in history. In 1937, when the lodge was nearly finished, someone noticed there was no bar. Improvising architects altered a wood storage area into the Blue Ox Bar. Restored glass mosaic murals illustrate the well-known Paul Bunyan—and his beloved blue ox, Babe—legend. The bar menu features hand-tossed pizza and other delectable snacks, Mt. Hood Brewing Co. microbrews, and seasonal cocktail offerings including “Honstein’s Dancing on the Bar Again”, our bourbon cocktail on tap.
11:00am - 8:00pm
Phlox Point Cabin
Newly remodeled in 2016, the Phlox Point Cabin was built in 1930 and has served as a warming hut for the Timberline Ski Club, a USFS summer guard station, and for more than 60 years it was an overnight shelter for Boy Scouts enjoying skiing and other winter activities. These days it is our mid-mountain ski-in-ski-out food service and warming hut. Take a break from riding and enjoy tasty, affordable street-style tacos, beer, wine, or a hot drink to warm up with on a cold day next to the roaring fire. The cabin is located to left, trailside on “Walt’s Baby”, which is between the Pucci and Jeff Flood/Still Creek lifts and can be accessed by skiing down “West Leg Road” (then left on “Walt’s Baby”) from the Wy’East Day Lodge.
Mt. Hood Brewing Co. - Govy
Located just six miles down mountain in Government Camp, Timberline’s Mt. Hood Brewing Co. features microbrews made onsite and fresh, Oregon-inspired comfort food. Established in 1991, the brewery was founded upon the notion that beer is best produced in small, handcrafted batches utilizing the finest local ingredients and enjoyed locally. Thus, Mt. Hood Brewing Co's beers can only be enjoyed in the state of Oregon in order to ensure optimal freshness. The brewery’s food menu is always fresh and locally-sourced and includes tasty starters, signature pizzas, and hearty entrees. Thousands of skiers—and Mt. Hood locals—have made the Mt. Hood Brewing Co. an institution on the south slope of Mt. Hood.
Mt. Hood Brewing Co. - PDX
We brought Mt. Hood to Portland! Mt. Hood Brewing Co. Tilikum Station is NOW OPEN, located on the east end of Tilikum Crossing across from the Oregon Rail Heritage Center and near OMSI. This new Mt. Hood Brewing location features wood-fired pizzas alongside our classic Mt. Hood Brewing craft ales, including a new Tilikum exclusive, the Mt. Hood Lager.

The Best Beef in the World
The Cascade Dining Room at Timberline Lodge is excited to offer extremely limited A5-rated Japanese Wagyu Beef on its dinner menu this summer. Timberline is the only location in the Pacific Northwest that this incredible beef is available.
The breed is Kuroge Washu (Japanese Black) from Iwakuni Farm by Nori Numamoto, specially fed with sake mash from Dassai-Asahi Brewery. Of the four Wagyu cattle breeds, Kuroge Washu is by the most important. It is known for its exquisite marbling and is the only breed of cattle that can achieve an A5 rating by the Japanese Meat Grading Association.
Marbling is the distribution of soft white fats within the meat. Generations of meticulous breeding and management of diet and exercise contribute to the extraordinary marbling of Wagyu Beef. Wagyu is graded for marbling on a scale of 1-12, with 12 being the highest quality. A5 Wagyu must reach a score of 8 or more. For reference, USDA Prime beef, the highest designation of quality in the U.S., is equivalent to a marbling score of 4 or 5.
It's rare for Japanese beef to attain A5 status. Beef of this quality is highly-prized and reserved for gifts or special occasions. With such rich marbling, Wagyu Beef literally melts in your mouth. On the Cascade Dining Room menu, it is served in its simplicity with flavor-accentuating accompaniments of radish, dijon mustard, crunchy salt, fresh horseradish, and black garlic shoyu. It is cut from the NY strip and at $160, our Japanese Drunken Wagyu Beef is meant to be shared, savored, and celebrated.
Meet our Chef
It is a story similar to many chefs who discover their passion for food while just trying to earn a living. That’s the great thing about working in kitchens…you can do it anywhere. The key is to get noticed while you’re doing it. Timberline Executive Chef Jason Stoller Smith has spent most of his 30+ year culinary career showcasing the fresh food, beer, and wine that make this region so unique. Chef Stoller Smith has spent more than half of his career as an Executive Chef, first at a seafood restaurant in Olympia, WA, then as the Executive Sous Chef here at Timberline for four years. He spent 10 years as Chef/Partner at a well-known wine country restaurant in Dundee, OR, to gain more experience in food and wine pairing. Chef Stoller Smith returned Timberline Lodge as Executive Chef in 2010, after an amazing two days of cooking at an event hosted by President Obama. He has since elevated the lodge’s various food programs. Jason oversees all the culinary efforts at Timberline’s seven Mt. Hood restaurants, plus the full-service conference center and wedding venue.
Our Wonderful Wine
The Timberline Lodge wine program is built around a single premise: offer the best of the Northwest. An increasingly world-renowned destination for innovative, quality cuisine and wine production, we feel it is our responsibility and honor to showcase various bounties available in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon, with its award-winning Pinot Noirs, is considered to be the Burgundy of North America, and Washington, with its incredible Cabernets and Merlots, could be called our Bordeaux. After you’ve sampled our wine list, we think you’ll agree some of the world’s best wines are being made here.
Nearly all the wines on our list are chosen at our weekly staff tastings. This helps refine our offering, as well as educate our servers about the wines. Our waitstaff is more than happy to make recommendations. In addition to the Pacific Northwest, we offer delicious wines from other regions as well. - David Villali, Timberline Lodge Wine Manager since 1994
