Live music with 4 TVs BLASTING football, one bartender OVERWHELMED with play-off crowds. Couldn't hear anything from the band onstage because of the rudeness and rowdiness of the sports fans. Pick a theme, friends. Music OR sports. Then get some more help, because the service was TERRIBLE.

Very nice bar and back bar. They have live music on every other week end, we missed the music weekend. Good bartender, he knew his liquor and made some good suggestions to the women in our group.

I love the fresh ground beef used in the gigantic hamburgers. You can definitely taste the difference. The pulled pork nachos are also a favorite. I only get them when I can share them and still have yet to finish the plate. Very clean bar, staff is often friendly and there is often great music.

I ordered the Bacon taco which the shell was made out of weaved bacon, talked with the cook and he said it took a couple months to perfect this little gem. The beer was cold and the staff very friendly, find this place and order the taco, it won't disappoint!

Nothing to stand out for me on this place. Typical bar food, nothing great, standard drinks, and service was just okay.

We stopped in for the happy hour specials and we were not disappointed. First off, the wait staff was phenomenal. Our server was extremely helpful and the bartender made well drinks as he said, "The way I like them," which was a solid, full pour cocktail. The BBQ pork for the sliders were made on site and were very good.... More

Chanced upon this gem and what a treat!! Very cool atmosphere. Stopped in first night and had a few drinks. We were impressed by our very knowledgeable bartender/owner. We had a not so good experience earlier in the evening with pizza so he recommended a place to try the next day for pizza the next day. I said we would... More

This appeared to be the happening place in Hood River, or at least it was on Election Night! Great live music, an amazing bartender, a fun atmosphere and food that lived up to our expectations (pub fare). We liked it a lot and we will be back!
