Restaurant suggestions in Vancouver, WA?

I've been put in charge of finding somewhere to eat in Vancouver, WA. Some friends of the family are staying up near the I-5/I-205 split, and I wanted to keep their driving down. I have no clue of restaurants in Vancouver. I've been under the assumption that Vancouver was just a big farm where the crops were strip malls and chain restaurants.

Need somewhere that is a sit-down restaurant, not terribly fancy, somewhere around $20/head or less. Going with my parents and family friends, so somewhere where we can talk and have a group of 5 easily. Good food would be a plus. Good dessert a bigger plus. Non-chain awesomeness would be a major plus.

Hope me MeFis!!!

Well, I'm not super familiar with Vancouver, but I've heard goodish things about Lapellah, and it's in your price range.

The other option, and it is chain-ish, would be maybe the McMenamins on the Columbia. Haven't been to this one in particular, but I think McMenamins food and beverages are pretty good.

That said, the drive into North or Northeast Portland is really not far, and there's a zillion amazing places to eat, drink and be merry there.

Roots is pretty good, although it might be more upscale than you're looking for.

I always enjoy Who Song and Larry's. Great view of the Columbia Bridge/River and deck if the weather is good.
