Need help finding place for dinner between Beaverton and Salem!

Thank you for any suggestions! I will be traveling to the Portland area in a couple of weeks and plan to meet friends for dinner. We are staying in Beaverton; they live in the Salem area. We both have cars. Last time I was there, we had dinner in Bridgeport Village. We can do that again, but were hoping to find a local restaurant. Nothing too expensive and with a varied menu, if possible.

  1. How about Mexican in Woodburn...there are many choices, and it will be delicious!

    1. If you like Morroccan food go to Dar Essalam in Wilsonville. Fantastic food and really nice people. Get the lamb shank ravine with spicy olive sauce. It's a nice cozy sit-down place.

      1. Oswego Grill in Lake Oswego is pretty good, but that means your friends are driving a bit more than you would have to. Hayden's Lakefront Grill is local and has a nice view of the little lake in Tualatin. Enjoy!!

        1. re: avarney

          Thanks so much. Oswego Grill sounds like a good menu for us. We have two not-very-adventurous eaters. And they have a location in Wilsonville, which means our friends won't have to drive as far.

        2. La Provence Bistro in Lake Oswego is good. Prices are very reasonable and the food is very good. It is not far from Bridgeport Village.
