Have been a few times and the food was always very good. Was nice and quiet, so good for conversation. I would recommend it to anyone visiting McMinnville.

Since we already ate lunch, we thought we would have a beer and try an appetizer and/or dessert. Our choice of appetizer was not available. We chose a dessert, that was not available either. (Mind you, it was 2:00 on a Thursday). We tried a couple of beers and went to buy a t-shirt. The t-shirt we wanted was sold... More

The beer is great- I like dark beer that isn't bitter. Great choices here. The food was good the servers need a little more training and time. The burgers were pretty big, my friend and I split the burger with a salad- plenty enough to eat

We take out boys and their families here once a month. It is not my favorite but it is a good place for kids in McMinnville. The food is really just bar food and the beer is hit and miss.

I wanted to be able to go somewhere in Mcminnville where I didn't have to make a reservation, didn't have an extremely limited local menu, was open more than twice a week but still had a great selection of Willamette Valley wines. Found that in GV Brewery. Able to have some meats and cheese for apps and tried the "wine... More

With Golden Valley, it seems to be a hit or miss. With such few options in the town of McMinnville, we try it every so often. The last couple of times has been a hit! YAY! Last time they changed up some of their specialty items and added a curry dish to the menu. It was really yummy! They have... More

Our group of seven adults ate here and everyone raved about how good the food was and how much there was. No one in our group had the prime rib, but we saw it served to another diner and it was a huge serving.
