Great beer choices from local breweries. Food was slightly better than the typical establishment. Avoid the steak sandwich - greasy and too fatty. The PORK CARNITAS SANDWICH and CILANTRO-JALAPENO BURGER were both really, really good.

I have been to this place several times and each time it is as just as good as the last. They have great vegetarian options and the beer is amazing. I like a dark brew so the Dechutes Ale is my favorite. The fried pickles are amazing. If you live in the area or are visiting the area this place... More

Lunch visit passing through town. Great vibe. Patio seating on a sunny afternoon. Great little downtown scene. Thai beef salad was good. Other dish had house made chips. Very good. Of course, it is an Ale House...local beer from Altamont brewery was great.

If you miss the old college days and want some of that type of food and experience then this is your place. Always overly crowded and can barely hear yourself think let alone carry on a conversation. tables very close together. all in all good food for a good value.

typical bar scene. WAY TOO LOUD. the food is ok the service is decent but it is so loud that you cannot hear to talk-at all. if you just want to watch a sport event and eat it is good. Many beers to try and some of them are good too. Beer is obviously a personal choice of taste. The... More

We had a group of 10 and got in fast. We were all so hungry so we were delighted to receive outstanding service from Amanda, our cheerful server. The food came out quickly and was amazing. Loved spending time with our friends and eatting there.

Went here for a birthday celebration at the end of September. Our party of eight was QUICKLY seated (bonus!) on a very busy Saturday night. The place was appropriately celebrating Oktoberfest, so I decided to venture off the usual menu and sample the "German" faire. I order the weinerschnitzel and potatoes. The schnitzel was good, but a bit thick and... More

I had the California burger which was amazing it has applewood bacon and guacamole on it. We also ordered the Ruben which was very delicious. Be sure to order fries. The restaurant us large. I didn't care for the hard rock music that was playing.
