“Good variety of beers!”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

If you're looking for a beer that's Oregon made, but not the ol' standby, come to Nepo 42! The bartender was friendly, the beer was tasty and the happy hour was delicious. Go play a game of softball at the park across the street and then head over to quench your thirst and feed your stomach!

“Best Wings I Have Ever Had”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Conversation upon entering the bar...

Fred, the Friendly - How are you doing?
Me - Wet!
Fred The Friendly - That's great!
Me - Great that I am wet?
Fred The Friendly - What? As in who what where when?
Me - No, as in wet, it is raining outside. Have you been doing shots, Fred?

This was a fun way to enter the bar and The Friendly continued to humor us.

Wings could win a smack down. Smoked, sticky and spicy. I am going to try this at home. The smokey flavor tossed in hot wing sauce was scrumptious!

Fries - Home cut, just the right size and perfect crunchy to soft ratio

Poppers - Expecting the normal grabbed-out-of-freezer-thrown-into-the-fryer poppers, I was pleasantly suprised that these actually appear to be hand made! They looked like mini corn dogs. I would have liked them more with a breading that wasn't so thick but that didn't stop me from cramming two of them past my lips.

I was in a wine moodso had their house happy hour red. Pretty darned good house red and that is coming from a gal who knows her reds. :-)

I really like this place and as long as they have other staff as friendly as Fred The Friendly, they should be around for a long time!

“Very Cool”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

We went here for happy hour and it was great! They have a neat sitting area outside-with good people watching. Their happy hour menu was awesome-tons of choices and good prices-real happy hour prices. We had their wings, fries, and veggie burger, and all were great. I would recommend this as a great happy hour spot!

A great local pub with a great microbrew selection and great food. Too bad they got rid of Sunday brunch.
