Next we shared a caesar salad. It was a well-balanced with nice parmesan shavings on top and very tasty croutons. We both enjoyed it a lot. Next we both ordered the prime rib. It came with horseradish mashed potatoes and asparagus. The mashed potatoes were surpising because I didn't remember the menu mentioning the horseradish, but they seemed to work. I also love that they serve their prime rib with fresh grated horseradish. The prime rib was excellent and seasoned well and the asparagus was done perfectly. A glass of red wine was the perfect complement.
We were stuffed silly, but we had to finish our meal with the apple bread pudding. I have never been a big fan of their desserts but this was fantastic. Moist and flavorful and the apples added a bit of tartness.
Even with our free entree we spent well over $100 but this meal was worth it, and I'm shocked to be writing that. I think we ordered well, but I'd be curious to try some other things on the menu. While I didn't think we'll be frequent diners at Hall Street, we will be back.

Stopped in at Hall Street Grill the other night. Figured it was my best hope for a truly quality burger west of Portland.
Just one choice on the menu, a "certified angus beef burger" with "roy's awesome sauce, tillamook cheddar and microbrew fries". Don't ask me what's up with that pickle and olive stabbed into the burger. The steak fries, lightly coated with a heavily seasoned breading, were really addictive.
Burger came on a plain bun with shredded lettuce, red onion, mediocre tomato, melted cheddar, and fry sauce.
Patty was cooked nicely, more medium than medium rare, with sufficient char. Most of the toppings were standard. The sweet and tangy sauce coated the shredded lettuce and dripped out the sides. The cheese was totally lost in the other flavors. I'm guessing it was just standard Tillamook cheddar, not an aged variety. From the pictures, I'd say it's too lightly applied, too. Bun was kind of dry, but held up to the saucy burger.
Ultimately it was just okay, about what I'd expect from places like Beaches, Jake's, or McMenamins. Better than fast food burgers, but closer in price to Toro Bravo, Cafe Castagna, et al.
