Good beer, good food

Enjoyed a porter and a stout, which was nice since dark beers were hard to come by in Pendleton in July. I also fell in love with their fried green tomato BLT!

Where do you go to eat when you're traveling with a dog and it's 106 degrees? Prodigal has an outside eating area with shade...once the sun sets. The food and beer were wonderful...drink fast, it's hot. Karen had the calamari tacos which were great. I had the Scotch egg which was a great, unexpected pub food. We split a flight... More

Try the onion pie. So tasty! It was well worth a stop. Also, I love that tiny beers are available, because I only get to stop in on road trips.

Loved this place. Dropped in without knowing what we were in for, but the place was packed for dinner. Now we know why. We will make this a favorite when in Pendleton, OR.

Were driving home to Seattle from Boise last Sunday and decided to stop by Prodigal Son Brewery and Pub, the restaurant, not the bar, at about 1pm. We waited for almost an hour for our food and when it finally arrived, it was nothing impressive. Average at best. I ordered the fish and chips and had only 3 of the... More

Anyway at lunch I had a burger and wife had a strange plate called Ploughman's Platter that included salami, cheese, veggies hard boil egg and bread... More

Busy Friday night in Pendleton during Bike Week. The evening was warm so we took a picnic table on the sidewalk to avoid a wait for inside seating. Traffic noisier than usual, again due to Bike Week. I was still able to carry on a conversation with my family and we saw some really nice bikes. The extra customers took... More

We had lunch at the Prodigal our first day visiting in town. The restaurant is located in an historic building on the east end of old downtown. The food tastes great and portions are plentiful. There is also an impressive selection of craft brew. The furniture and decor is antique/country clutter and not the cleanest place we've dined. However, many... More

Tasty desserts and great beer, but greasy "grill" type food. More fresh, vegetarian options would be helpful.

No pasta special left and it was early eve. Had a house salad that I had to ask where the veggies were. Waitress was great though. Food, not so much.
