“Fun place to be!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We walked up the street trying to find a coffee spot. Not easy on a Saturday night at 9:30. We heard some jammin tunes from a McMenamins on the corner. This is a great spot for a nightcap. One man band was great!!! Check it out! They just celebrates their 35 year anniversary.

“As comfortable as an old pair of sneakers.”
Reviewed 18 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a place a visit at least weekly, since it's close to work. A typical McMennamins in terms if menu and themed decor. But what I love about it is the waitstaff. Low key and friendly, they never hover but are always attentive.

The beers on tap change often. The soups and specials are consistently good and while not an English pub by a long shot, it does have the intimate feel of one.

This isn't high cuisine. It's good bar food, even the salad. I usual go for one of the specials. The burgers are excellent. And the veggie grill is a good light option.

One great new addition is the outdoor heated seating area. Set back from the road and covered it made the restaurant a great option for sunny days all the way through November.

When you're near this end of Hawthorne it's a solid choice.

“Great Tasting Beer”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

I didn't have anything to eat, but the beers were great. They are very smooth. The are about $4.50 or less then that if they're on special. I would recommend trying anything on special because I had 3 different kinds and all were good.

If you find yourself getting upset that Jerry died and abandoned you, cruise into the Barley Mill and grab a pint. Everythings gonna be alright.
