Dining at the Balch

Simple. Rustic. Elegant.


Bistro Logo



The Balch Bistro is open for dinner Sun, Mon, & Thurs from 5 – 8 pm and Fri & Sat from 5-9pm (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays). As we are a boutique property with variable occupancy, our hours of service varies seasonally. (Calling to confirm availability is always a good idea.)

Reservations are encouraged, as space and quantities are limited. Please call 541-467-2277, so you're sure we're open and able to serve you.

Our menu is updated seasonally. We source local and organic whenever possible. We feature natural products from our neighbor, Azure Standard as well as other local farms and suppliers.

Open to local neighbors, travelers and overnight guests passing through. Satisfy your hunger, without leaving the lovely Balch grounds.

Weather permitting, you can enjoy your meal on our patio or in the bistro with limited seating. (Please observe 6' physical distancing with staff and other guests.) Enjoy the fire-pit in cooler weather.

Take Away is available for pick up during dinner service hours.

Order by phone at 541.467.2277.
