Great food for a bar.

Excellent quality food for a bar and music venue. They use high quality ingredients and have more variety than the usual beer and burger selections. Also a great place to see the local color. Great location in the heart of Eugene's happening brewery district.

Local Irish musicians from young to old gather to jam every Sunday from 4-7pm. Music is fun, local beers and wine are great. Had bar snacks that were fine.

We love the breweries that are in old buildings and they do a great job of making it a fun place to have a beer, while using the great location. The barrel aged rye and the brown were awesome and we will definitely be back.

Went here with my husband and friends and we had a great time. Their service was prompt and the atmosphere was nice. They had a band playing and we sat outside and enjoyed the evening. The people that hung out there were mainly in their 20's. Mostly clean cut but trendy. Not a lot of college students that I could... More

They always have local groups playing there and it makes it fun for the entire family. The pizza is wonderful, my boys love it. The variety of beer is a nice adventure of it's own. Make sure you plan on a stop here.

A large group of us attended for a friend's concert and half of us hadn't been before. We were all impressed in the prompt service of the small bar. It would be a great investment if they expanded. Will definitely be back!

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 overpriced. $3.50 for a small, mediocre pizza slice. I... 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.
