Hello and welcome to Dueling Spoons,
Your hosts (not all at the same time) will be Kathleen, myself, Chef Billy, and 4 of our 6 children, Sean, Saoirse, Seamus, and Shane.
First, we are so happy you are here with us or reading our website. We know that you have many dining choices, and it means the world to us that you chose Dueling Spoons today or are planning a visit.
We would like you to know a few things before you begin dining or before you plan your trip to see us. Most importantly, if you are in a rush, please tell us immediately. We will see what we can do, but if you are in a hurry, Dueling Spoons may not be the dining spot for you today, and we hope to see you on another day.
Dueling Spoons is your and your guests’ very own private chef experience.
Here at Dueling Spoons, we do not have any fryers or fried food, no microwaves or microwaveable food, no heat-and-serve frozen processed ready-to-eat food ever. As you can and will see, our refrigerator is an open book. What you will be served is fresh, real food cooked by a real chef just for you. All our dishes are cooked by me, Chef Billy, in pans, from scratch, to order, using fresh ingredients.
We only allow a certain number of reservations each day and space them out into 15-minute slots. There is only one 5pm reservation, one 5.15, and so on. Before your reservation time, you are welcome to have a drink at the bar or the lounge tables.
We do not take one order at a time but depending on how many tables order at once, there may be a wait as I cook.
We only have 5 electric burners (no gas), and I can only cook so many dishes at once.
Please sit, get comfortable, take a breath, chat, have a drink, break the Irish Wheaten Bread (freshly baked daily) together and enjoy your time with each other.
Sometimes, we tell you that we may need to wait a bit to take your order so I (Chef Billy) can get caught up. I make this call from the kitchen when we have to do this. It is not my family out front who makes this call.
I could not say it better than this snippet from a recent guest’s review who puts it perfectly, “relax, have a drink, wait your turn, it’s so worth it.”
We only accept reservations for 30 people at each dinner service, leaving room for walk-in guests, and we cap our nightly dinner guests at 40.
Your experience with us is so much more important to us than handing you a beeper so you can wait outside for an hour while we cram in seating at every table we can as we serve you mediocre food. This is not the Dueling Spoons way.
You are about to experience a meal the Dueling Spoons way with the Reid Family.
Relax, be merry, be patient, be comfortable, and enjoy.
The Reid Family.
Dinner is served Wednesday through Saturday, 5 pm – 9 pm.
Billy is a Grande Diplome graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York City and spent many years working for and training with many of New York City’s finest chefs.
He is the recipient of 14 national cooking awards, has been featured in many magazines, newspapers, tv news segments and many other culinary recognitions. Billy was mentioned and quoted by a First Lady during a speech at the White House for his work.
Billy, who was born in Ireland, his wife Kathleen and their family now call Oregon home with Dueling Spoons serving the Fall Creek, Pleasant Hill, Springfield, and surrounding areas.
