Drinks are Good; Food is Okay

Sam Bonds is a great music and show venue, first off. They book good groups and are set up to handle large turnouts. Their bar, especially, is great with the crowd. Drink selection and prices are both above-average. I've never seen anyone complain. The food is both a little low-quality and... read more

Be sure to try the Humus Plate if you love dolmas & olives, what a combo! Entertaining crowd, friendly staff, something special every night. If you visit Whiteaker, you have to go here.

Very popular with the 20-30 crowd. Live music at times and good beer selection. Can't be too upbeat about the food. Just average bar type selections. Prices ok.

Short and sweet: shouldve spent more time at this genuine, authentic spot in the now-cool Whitaker neighborhood. Good food, great live music, and good company. A must-visit for any Eugene trip (hint: stay away from campus unless you're 25/under.

I found this place exploring the area around my hotel. My husband & I had an early dinner here, so we missed the music that is a major part of the identity of Sam Bonds. My salad was very fresh with a house made dressing. My husband had the Mediteranian plate (hummas, olives, tabouli, pita, etc.), which was good with... More

Great place to sit and listen to some music, have a pint and eat a pizza. Their salmon chowder is also very good.

Anarchists, metal-faces, tattoos covering bodies like wall-paper in an old hotel: all of this for your viewing pleasure PLUS great tap microbrew selections and much-better-than-average food. Very tasty pizza, salads, soups, and even a very nice comfort blast of meatloaf and mashers. The staff are terrific and the entertainment can be amazing. Nice place to hang, especially the outdoor seating... More

This is one of my favorite music venues in town. The salmon chowder is great if you're looking to get a bite to eat. I haven't had much of anything else there, except beer, of which they have a nice rotating selection.
