Causul and Fun Eating outdoors

We ate here two times - lunch and dinner. The food was excellent under the trees as we watched the town go by. Good beer selection! (even tho' I am not much of a beer drinker)

This is a nice, clean place to eat in Joseph, Oregon. The food was tasty but not spectacular. Had a small pizza with underdone crust. But all the ingredients are fresh. The service is very good. The prices are reasonable and it seems like a great family place.

Decent selection of microbrews and good food. I had the rustic pizza, it was excellent! Perfect crust with the tastiest artichokes I've ever eaten (see pic). Lots of outdoor seating with fantastic mountain views that get in Joseph. Worth a stop!

On many levels, this was a winner. We especially liked the outside patio, where we sat beside a firepit enjoying the cooling September evening, enjoying the mountain view. The place seemed to be very popular with locals, which we appreciate. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was disappointing. We ordered a nacho and quesadilla, and both were less than average....

We had pizza here and it was ok but nothing to write home about. We gave some of the pizza to some young gentlemen who were drinking beer so they probably enjoyed it more than we did. We probably will not go back.

This was a good experience for a casual outdoor meal. The outdoor seating was quite pleasant, and we had a nice background view of the mountains. The beers, as expected were good, though they were out of some. I had a reuben, and it was quite good, (but not the type that as a ridiculously tall stack of meat.) My... More

There aren't a lot of dining choices in Joseph. This is a step up from pub food. It's good and worth the recommendation. We enjoyed sitting outside and looking at the mountains!

I was part of a 15 person group who had dinner at the Embers. The first thing was telling us what was not available from a very limited menu. Hamburgers, no. Choosing something else was tough and my lasagne came cold. Yuk.

We eat her 2 or 3 times every time we stay in Joseph, and we're only there for 5 nights! The other nights we eat at the R&R Drive-in.

Stopped in after a backpacking trip for some beer/cider and snacks. The beer selection was good, wife found a great cider to drink, but the nachos left a lot to be desired. We've eaten here several times in the past / burgers are great - pizza is ok, service can be a little slow, especially if your outside, but the... More
