I've been here with family a few times and my impression is always the same. The beers are good, service and food is very average, price is high. I have never been impressed with the service we have received; the food is fine but I feel like I can get both better food and service at any number of other... More

What a nice brew pub! Excellent service and food was great too! It is very warm and inviting and the beer sampler was interesting and tasty. They have a nice place outside to enjoy food and beer!

This is a relatively new brew pub but it is hitting on all gears. The service is tops with energetic and happy servers who seem to appreciate customers. Pizza is great, good fish super ales. Try the double red with 8.4 abv. Liked this place so much we dined here twice when staying three nights in town. If you like... More

We were surprised here - typical brew house with standard food selection except we ordered the seafood special which turned out to be one of the best meals we had on the trip. Well prepared and presented and nice service.

Golden Valley Brewery is well worth the few short blocks walk down 3rd st in McMinnville. Go past the stores, the railroad station and the tracks. Enter the rather plain side door. Inside is a huge restaurant with excellent food and a micro-brewery. The Cuban sandwich was one of the best I've had. My wife had a Tuscan Chicken sandwich... More

We were RVing in the area when we decided on a casual dinner. Golden Valley was recommended by our hosts and it didn't disappoint. The atmosphere is "happening" but the service was great and everyone was very friendly. Plus they gave you the feeling that they were really happy you were there. To top it off, the beer was fantastic... More

Service was outstanding. Since we were undecided on a craft beer, two samples were brought. Both were great and we ordered one. The chicken pot pie was very good--light, flaky crust. The hamburger was below expectations--very dry and tasteless. Beer (and wine) much better, overall, than the food.

We went for dinner. The actual dining area is a big room which they have split into two. One is officially the dining room and the other is the bar. If you want to enjoy the experience go to the bar to the left but if you want more of a 'white tablecloth' feel go to the restaurant side on... More

This was a good steak house when we first came to McMinnville in 2008 but the quality of service and food has deteriorated over the last few years.

I love GVBP! They have a beautiful bar, comfortable booths and good service. The menu has many options ~ wonderful salads, terrific BBQ pork sandwiches and my favorite, pork schnitzel. Their strawberry lemonade is the best around, with or without alcohol. Comfortably dressed or casual, there is "something for everyone!"
