Great spot for families after a long day's travel

Don't be turned off by the name of this place, they've got great beer, an expansive kid's menu (that my picky kids devoured) plus a kid's playroom with toys and books, as well as very friendly and pretty fast service despite it being a busy night.

This is just a wonderful place! I stopped here before heading to a hotel while passing through this area. They have wonderful, award-winning, brews - I had the dark porter with flavors of chocolate and coffee - excellent!!! They also serve really good pub food - I had the baked 3-cheese man'n'cheese - again, excellent! - followed by the carrot... More

This place is always bustling and has good pub fare. Service is friendly but can be a tad slow if they are really busy.

While traveling through Oregon, we had a quick overnight in Pendleton. We ate here and loved the burgers. The IPA was outstanding as well. The thing that really stuck out was our waitress gave our 13 year old free pop and desert that normally comes with the child's menu. She must have figured that he might be jealous of our... More

Slow service for noon lunch. Seat yourself but then it takes a long time to get service. Didn't really check in after lunch was brought out; sweet potato fries would have been better with a side of ranch. The. Took another 15 minutes to get bill. Okay food, but service could be improved.

Fun atmosphere, cool decor. The happy hour burger was pretty plain, we regretted ordering that when all our friends orders came out. Luckily they shared.. Salmon dip was delicious, Scotch egg was great, the Countess sandwich looked really good, and the beer flight had a lot of variety and quite a few great beers. Would love to come back here... More

We met some old friends there to catch up and enjoy an evening with them. Typical bar food with a variety of their own beers. I wish there was more food choices but the chicken BLT with was very good and I enjoyed their home cooked fries. There were some salad options as well as fish and chips. Pendleton is... More

It's really a cool place, not what you would expect in a small foregone glory town. They food was ok, the beer was really good. They... More

This is a Great place for a beer, wind, or a drink and some good food. Local beers and wines are on offer (with other options), and with very friendly staff. Sitting at the bar we met some locals and got good ideas on other things to see and do in the area.
