Great little pub with great informal fare

We enjoyed eating here and having a brew. We had ahi tuna. Nice atmosphere as well. Parking is not the greatest though, a little bit tricky.

Nice people, nice place, good food. Nothing super special but above par for sure. The food is fresh and local and the atmosphere is comfortable.

Not a lot to this place. Could use a good vacuuming. The food wasn't bad but nothing special either. The beer was well beer.. so how bad could that be? Our server was friendly.

Located on Hwy 1, the restaurant is small so expect a wait. The menu features items that go very well with the local craft beer. We had the pulled-pork sandwiches and loved them. Filled with locals, so you know the food is awesome or they wouldn't keep coming back.

If you want some local ambience this is the place. Burgers from locally grown grass fed beef and family owned and operated. Excellent and changing brew selection all the time.

We thoroughly enjoy the Vista Pub for the food and the brews! Ray has a great staff, both on the floor and in the kitchen. My favorite is the Cranberry Turkey, so yummy! the menu is limited but the inclusions are top notch!

Our problem started with the parking. It's located on Chetco Ave and strangely has gravel parking in front for 5 or 6 cars. Then you have to drive around to find parking, found a spot behind and down, then walked up between buildings on a gravel path. Their specialty is a 1/3rd pound burger. We asked for Blue Cheese on...

Thank you for the review.. Parking is a huge issue.. The parking lot is gravel because if the owner paves it, it will have to be brought up to code, and in turn would be unusable for parking, creating even more of an issue.. So I take what I can get at this point.. We don't have Goat Cheese in... More
