My dinner at this restaurant was the biggest surprise I had on this trip. I order the fish and chips and was shocked as to how good it was. I can easily say that this was the best fish and chips I have ever had. The batter on the fish was perfectly crispy and tasty. I will definitely return here... More

The Bruce/lee porter and the Ella IPA with fresh hops were outstanding. The fish was very crisp and the sweet potato fries were very good. We also had the peach shortcake and were very pleased. Not fancy but good food and beer at a reasonable price. This is a good choice after a long day of driving.

Recommended to us by the Rodeway Inn & Suites around the corner. I tried the Portabello Mushroom burger and it was surprisingly delicious considering it was meatless! My wife had the Vulcar's Revenge and it was equally good. Bruce Lee Porter beer is a must try for beer aficionados.

Came here with my husband and toddler daughter on vacation. They have a kid area with toys!! I got the fried green tomato BLT which was delicious. Their fries were good too. My husband got the jalapeño burger which he said was good but I would not recommend the after effects... If we were local we would be back!

Recommended by locals & they were right! Spicy chicken wings with peach sauce were unusual but so good. Good brewery. Fun decor!

We like the old town atmosphere. The service was slow maybe because they were busy. We had to sit in the bar. We had the onion rings and they were very good.

When they say kid friendly they mean in. They got a lite play area right up front for the kids. The food was great and you get a lot of it. All different kinds of adult drinks to choose from. Happy hour menu is kind of dull but that's no big deal. We ate here because reviews found on trip... More

We stayed in pendleton on our way to Portland and found this place through trip advisor. Didn't disappoint! I had a burger and my husband had the Buffalo chicken sandwich, both were great for pub food their beer is wonderful and it's very much a family place to. Genius idea - they have a kid room!! Would definitely come back... More

Best food that I had on my recent trip to Pendleton. They have some very unique and fun items on the menu. Onion rings were so very good. I am a hefeweizen fan and theirs, made with local wheat, was darker than normal and extremely refreshing in the hot weather.
