“Good bar food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We've been here many, many times. Like all McMenamins, the food is good bar food. Selection is pretty good. Rooftop bar is fantastic on a sunny day. We keep going back so I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a casual setting for lunch/dinner.

“Worst service ever!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

One of our friends celebrates his birthday every year with friends at the rooftop pub. We drive all the way from Salem and Albany for the event. No matter how we tried to arrange two four top tables, the waiter replied "Absolutely not!" After several attempts to rearrange the tables, we asked, "What would you like us to do?" . His reply? "I don't know, find another table?" REALLY? Did I mention we had been sitting in that same spot for several years with no complaints from wait staff. So, we found a four top and pulled a couple of extra chairs up. Waited 10 long minutes, with no one stopping by our table to get a drink order! We packed up our belongings, called our friends and told them we were headed over to the Golden Valley Brewery.. problem solved.

“Bad Waitress Training Center?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were visiting our daughter and her dorm mate at college and decided to take a drive out to McMinnville and take in a little Mother's Day breakfast. Apparently that was not to be as they stop breakfast at 11am (On Mother's Day!!!) due to something having to do with the roof-top bar having only a lunch-dinner menu ( WHAT???). After being seating we waited for over 20 minutes for our first interaction (beyond water) with the waitstaff and were engaged in the should we go/stay debate. Finally a very pleasant young lady with glasses came along and asked for our drink order. Another young lady returned an interminable time later with our drinks including a sweet tea that was just a regular ice tea and a coffee with a lipstick imprint on the rim of the cup! We did forge on eventually ordered and received our meals by a constantly changing waitstaff (TEAM APPROACH) none of whom seemed ever to have been to a restaurant-let-alone worked in one--and all of them seemed like they would rather have been with their mothers instead of here! The food was actually not bad--and the Hammerhead Ale was great but all arrived without any utensils/ napkins. It was as though we came during their first week/day in business. For all the radio ad hype regarding the various McMennamins around the state, I have to say that my family and I were decidedly disappointed. Again, the restaurant/hotel certainly has plenty of charm and I would've considered returning to experience the roof-top-bar...but I'm sorry, it's hard to overcome that much poor service!

“Historic downtown, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We dined on a Monday evening, relatively quiet and friendly atmosphere, nice food choices. A great burger for my husband and the Green machine brown rice/veggies/pesto was tasty. However, there were artichoke hearts (instead of avocado as advertised) mixed with the spinach, broccoli, summer squash, and caramelized onions.

“A McMinnville must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We went for breakfast which was fine. The food was well prepared and service was excellent. We had heard so much about this hotel that we had to take the elevator to check out the roof top bar. This bar would be a definite go to spot in McMinnville if it wasn't raining. The art and decor are worth the visit.
