Chris van der Linden
Old School Eatery
Mountain View continued to run as a school until 2012 and sat vacant for a few years before it started to fill with local businesses. Jones Distilling was the first to come in, and we joined shortly after just across the hall. Owner and Chris van der Linden began transforming the classroom into the fresh and refined space that you see today.
Drawing inspiration from Asian and Mediterranean dishes, Chris then started the construction of a delicately hand-crafted menu. After months of hard work, Old School Eatery opened in December of 2018 and has been serving up delicious food and cocktails since.
Come take a seat with us and enjoy the history for yourself. Our dining room provides views of four different mountains, creating the perfect backdrop for your meal. In the summer down on our patio, you can admire the historic brick school-front on one side and the iconic Mount Begbie and the Columbia River on the other.
