Tuesday night special is Beer Batter Chicken. It is ridiculously good. All white meat and flaky coating. The bartender was very nice (I ate at the bar). Staff seemed very accommodating based on what I heard around me. 29 beers on tap but slanted towards Porters and the like. Clean glasses and taps; tasty Deschuetes Lager.

We ate there on a Friday evening when they have a fish fry. Some of us had the fish fry-very good. Some of us had hamburgers-very good. The service was good.

Have been there both for lunch and dinner and both times the food and service was wonderful. Portions are of good size (actually took half of my wrap home).

Stayed at hotel within walking distance. Glad I found the TripAdvisor reviews! Food was great and so was service. Sat at the bar and was amazed by the number of customers that were known regulars to the staff. That tells you something because there is no residential housing nearby. I had wings and a steak and 30 draft beers to... More

The lunch menu had a wide variety of choices. I had the hamburger which was on special for $6. My wife had a half turkey sandwich with beef vegetable soup. Our server was very attentive and took very good care of us.
