2 Rivers Bar and Grill located in Washougal Town Square, is an upscale restaurant and bar serving up small plates, burgers, entrées, with nightly specials and many beers on tap.
Using locally sourced ingredients, 2 Rivers is all about serving up fresh food. Popular dishes include the beer-battered Fish and Chips, Salmon Cakes, Steak Bites, and Prime New York Steak (priced in the mid-$20 range).
2 Rivers features more than 30 different bottles of wine, with most selections coming from local Oregon and Washington wineries. Sixty percent of their offerings are red wine.
Owner Derik Ford brought 2 Rivers to reality after many months of working out at adjacent Anytime Fitness.
“I walked by every day to see this great vacant space, and decided to do something about it — I’ve always wanted to do this,” said Ford, an entrepreneur, whose wife, Michelle, teaches and coaches volleyball at Camas High School. “Michelle has lived here for five years, and I grew up in the Coos Bay, North Bend area. “We’ve spent time to create a great atmosphere. It’s really needed in Washougal, and we’re already getting repeat customers.”
Underground parking at Washougal Town Square is also a bonus, which makes access really easy — especially with the elevator.
