Perfectly Suited Needs, but not a Perfect Place

I was looking for a large group reservation for a Saturday night, something that other chain restaurants generally do not offer. I chose to make a reservation at McMenamin's North Bank, knowing what I know about tother McMenamin's locations. We entered the restaurant at 6:30 for a 7:00 pm... read more

We stopped for a quick bite before a soccer game, and a quick bite took a long time. (I think they were short staffed when we arrived.) This is one of our favorite McMenamins, as it's right on the river and there are many great seats indoors and outside. If you're lucky and it's a cold day you might try... More

After my wonderful experience at the High Street locale, I was very pleased to visit the North Bank location. The two restaurants could not be any more different in ambiance. However, they are both fantastic. Again, the food and service were top notch. I loved the patio area of the North Bank location. And, of course, I enjoyed the opportunity... More

We often take guests to sit outside by the river in good weather. The food is always good, but the menu is small and formulaic, never any surprises or new things. Big juicy burgers, fish, sandwiches, etc. A few veggie options, lots of drinks to select from including many brews. We love the cajun tater tots and the sweet potato... More

It was our daughters wedding anniversary and wanted a nice place to go. The location is just perfect. Views of the river from most every table in the room. Outdoor seating, heater lamps & fire pits. The food isn't the biggest servings, but it was tasty. The drink service is a bit slower than I prefer, but it worked out.... More

While some dishes are just average (Salmon), they make great, HUGE burgers that come in many varieties. I like the "Dungeon Burger" with swiss, mushrooms, grilled onions and a special kind of bun. They have a great wine selection and of course, their own famous selection of micro-brews.

We love stopping at McMenamin's all over the PNW. The beer selection in this one was average, and the building was not quite as unique as most but still very nice. The patio was a hit as it overlooked the river. Just had a few drinks and went to dinner elsewhere, the happy hour has some good deals.

This place obviously gets all of its business for the lovely setting by the river. The food stinks! We will in,y go here for drinks on a nice day. What's up with the creepy wet smelling room at the end where they never seat people? Toxic Mold? Really wish the food was as good as the views.

Quiet week day and needed a healthy lunch while out and about. Remembered the great salad I has this summer. I ordered mine with a grilled chicken breast for the protein and didn't get the cheese. I forgot to ask for the dressing on the side which was a mistake. The salad was too greasy and all the great flavored... More

There are sadly few options to be on the river in Eugene and this is one. It never seems to have adequate staff and tables don't get cleared quickly and service is slow. Food is average, typical McMenamins menu of burgers and pub food. Good beer selection but not good cocktails. I ordered a martini and it was barely drinkable.... More
