Great food in social atmosphere

The menu changes throughout the year with delicious salmon/watermelon salad in the summer to a southwestern style rice bowl in the winter. Home-brewed beer is popular. The space consists of two large adjoined dining areas, a bar with chairs, several tv's showing sporting events, and a seasonal... read more

Food is good and portions are huge. Has a large dining area and can get very loud. Tables are close and at times I've felt claustrophobic. The waiters are very busy and sometimes it take a while to get their attention or have them bring extras that you've requested.

We always eat here at least once when in town visiting our son at Linfield. Beer is great and food is hearty with a good selection. Love that the beef is raised for the restaurant!

The food was ok, nothing exceptional in any way, but the waiter was rude, actually rolled his eyes when I asked for a salad instead of fries, then charged full price for the substitution (It was just mixed greens and a slice of tomato on the side of the plate, and not very much of it, not like it was...

Staff are friendly and service is fast. Prices are reasonable. Big portions. Burgers and the crab mac & cheese are very good. Stay away from the mixed drinks, a little sweet and not from scratch.

There are few choices in McMinnville for sit down lunch. This pub is inconsistent as to the quality of its beer and food. When they are on it is very good. When they are not it is very poor.

We are regulars coming here for many years. Dinner last night was a real disappointment. Did the kitchen forget our dinner? Our waiter had to go check. Then when one of the daily specials finally was brought to the table, it was so overcooked (burnt?) to be not good. The waitstaff was embarrassed and very apologetic even to complimenting us...
