The Most Unusual Restaurant In Oregon Needs To Be Experienced To Be Believed
Dining in Oregon is never boring. From a restaurant where you can
watch oysters being shucked to one where you’ll dine right in an underground wine cellar, you can always find an interesting atmosphere in which to dine in the Beaver State.
Here’s a restaurant where the food is tasty, and the decor is quite unusual:
Mohawk Restaurant & Lounge opened in 1984. It's located at 136726 US-97, Crescent, OR 97733. This little restaurant looks pretty unassuming from the outside, but wait til you see what's inside...
The pine-paneled dining room is cozy and warm, and filled with interesting things to see.
There's an incredible collection of taxidermy animals here, from locations all over the world. You'll see everything from local deer, elk and antelope to an alligator, a Mexican iguana, and the pelt of a zebra.
Golden eagles and geese fly overhead, a huge trophy fish jumps over the fireplace, and a lobster crawls on the wall. This is definitely not your typical restaurant!
One part of the collection that's both fascinating and sad is the 20 tiny fawns. These fawns were the unborn babies of deer who were killed on the highway while pregnant.
More than 1,500 collector bottles line the walls of the dining room. You'll want to spend some time checking these out - the owner has been collecting them since the 1950s.
There's a vintage bourbon bottle from every state in this collection!
The atmosphere isn't the only draw at this restaurant - the food is great, too! If you're in need of a hearty breakfast, you've come to the right place. You'll find tasty, homemade meals like these biscuits, hash browns and sausage, covered in creamy country gravy.
You'll also find plenty of sandwiches and burgers on the menu for lunch or dinner.
On a chilly fall day, a hot turkey sandwich with a side of mashed potatoes hits the spot.
Dinner entrees include delicious honey-cured ham steaks, beef steaks, pot roast, meat loaf, and many other comfort food items.
Visit Mohawk Restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner seven days a week. It's open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m..
