The Oregon Electric Station is a national historic landmark featuring antique railroad cars for dining. It was originally designed by A. E. Doyle and opened its doors in 1914 as the final stop of the electric railway, connecting people throughout the Willamette Valley. When the station opened, local newspaper headlines declared it to be “the greatest day in the history of Eugene.”
Passenger service by the Oregon Electric Railway was discontinued in 1933. Since the railway’s demise, the Oregon Electric Station has been used for a variety of uses including offices, storage, and even as the Southwest Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as the Oregon Electric Railway Passenger Station, in 1979.
Over the years and through various owners, many surface changes were made to the building, but the owners of the present restaurant have gone to great lengths to restore it to its original luster. It’s a go-to spot when visitors come to visit, and has become a landmark of social significance for its historic value and incredible dining experiences.
Globally inspired, the menu features artistically crafted organic locally sourced ingredients. Representing the rich history of Eugene as well as the surrounding region, Oregon Electric Station is committed and dedicated to the quality of their meals, ambiance, and hospitality.
They are known for their Prime Rib, steak, fresh seafood, homemade pasta, and enticing vegetarian entrees. They also have an extensive wine list and live music on weekends.
The Oregon Electric Station is located downtown Eugene near the railway station at 27 E. 5th Ave.
