From Fox News Review, May 18, 2010

    Given the isolation of Mount St. Helens,
    it's understandable that the surrounding
    region lacks for notable food finds. You
    will find at least one quiet, good, and
    highly atmospheric restaurant along
    Spirit Lake Highway. As its name
    indicates, 19 Mile House (9440 Spirit
    Lake Hwy., Kid Valley; 360-274-8779) lies
    at the 19 mile point of the road. The
    rustic, riverside restaurant is just about a
    15-minute drive beyond the Mount St.
    Helens Visitor Center at Seaquest State
    Park, perfect if you're en route to or from
    Johnston Ridge.

The kitchen turns out tasty chow, the specialty being a daunting tower of meat called
the St. Helens Burger, which comprises a quarter-pound beef patty, a fried egg, a slab
of ham, both Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheese, a pile of fresh local greens, onions,
and tomato, and a special house sauce. Slightly spicy house-made chips make a
perfect accompaniment. Dessert is the true highlight here - 19 Mile House
specializes in fresh cobblers, with
blackberry or strawberry-rhubarb among the
delectable options. You can eat inside the rustic dining room hung with volcano
souvenirs, but in warm weather it's preferable to grab a seat on the veranda and
admire the rushing rapids of the North Fork Toutle River while trying to imagine the
torrential volcanic debris that gushed through here following Mount St. Helens'
