You won't soon repeat this culinary experience, that is unless you run into another of McMinamins fantasy like restaurant/hotels. Unique rooms, in which to enjoy a meal, a drink, a show, a movie, or outside to enjoy a cozy fire, a cigar or even each other in an intimate secluded spot only the two of you might find. Secret rooms,... More

Stopped in with some co workers for lunch. Ate outside but not in the front area that faces the road. In between the buildings were your allowed to bring dogs. Staff is friendly and attentive. Plenty of food options so everyone is happy. Feel in love with the garlic butter. Huge garlic cloves

Ordered the halibut which was a little pricey yet to be expected with halibut. When my food was delivered I had 2 pieces of halibut on my plate. A $27.00 plate with such a small portion. The waiter comped a beer and said he thought the portion looked a little small too. I would have rather had the full portion... More

Really enjoyed the maze of fun spots to hangout inside and out in their eclectic historic converted church/school complex. The outdoor fire pits, the hotel, the food and the soaking pool were highlights.

We love McMenamins. We have been to several of their locales around Oregon and Washington. We have stayed at St Francis before. This trip we were staying locally and dropped in for a meal. It had been a few years since our last trip to Bend, and in that time the Downtown area has really exploded with different restaurants and... More

Stopped in for a pint with a party of 9 on a Saturday afternoon. Sat outside in the middle courtyard. Totally in keeping with McM unique brand of character and atmosphere. Multiple eating & drinking venues. Soaking tub, hotel, and a theater where you can have food and drink. In typical McM style, the property - a former Catholic school... More

We stayed in a Queen Ada room, which after paying for I realized was designed for wheelchairs. The room was entirely finished in wood, for a cabin-like look, and the bathroom was handsomely tiled. You wouldn't know you were in a former schoolhouse except for the portrait of a fifth-grade teacher, crudely rendered but charming, with a bio and quotes... More

The menu is a touch upscale in price for NW roadhouse type food...but the plates are full and for the most part satisfying. We had a veggie pizza with added sausage (huge),the elk burger which was decent, the mahi mahi and salmon, which were nicely done, and the pork roast, which was a touch overdone. Drew was our server, and... More

The McMenamins properties stick to a dependable formula of great service, good high quality food, a myriad of drink selections (fresh creative cocktails), all with a lot of fun. The Old St. Francis School is no exception and we enjoyed a great afternoon with friends. This is the perfect place to just hang out. Despite the somewhat frenetic energy of... More

Our ski club met here for a party and we had the best time. The food was great, and plentiful, live music was playing, and we were able to explore the whole place. FUN!
