“Popular watering hole just OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Table sticky, and the place was busy; but food and drink good when it came. Nice shuffleboard in the adjacent bar.

“Better Inside than Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

Located in a strip mall adjacent to I--205, it certainly was not the façade of a McMenamins that I'm used to. But once inside, it did have an OK pub atmosphere. Good beer on tap as usual; loved my burger as well. But the French fries were oily and limpy - not to my liking at all. Would definitely get a different side next time. Service was good - a bit slow but we got there at a peak time - at least the beer came quickly!

“Great late night food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Tator tots and beer! WOW, yummy! Service was a bit slow but the food made up for it. I was staying at the Days Inn and the location could not be better, literally across the parking lot.

“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

I remember when there were only a few McMenamins around and they were special places. Now they are all over and nothing special, especially this one, which is in a strip mall instead of one of the historic buildings McMenamins built their reputation on.

Their marketing department certainly knows how to write a menu, as most of the offerings sound intriguing. However, a lot gets lost in the execution. Ordinary ingredients plus ordinary cooking skills yields ordinary results. The food isn't bad, it just isn't any better than what you'd get in any other pub on 82nd or Sunnyside.

“A 'Must' in PDX”

I always stop at one of the many pubs when I stay in Portland. Great atmosphere to meet friends and enjoy a great beer & meal.
