I have visited the Prodigal Son Brewery a couple other times, but some friends want to meet here and well I decided to give it one more try. This time I found the service to be good to excellent, with a very friendly attentive waitress. We had 5 in our party and we sat at a large table in the... More

Very comfortable, with a great western frontier atmosphere. The service was fast and efficient. The food was tasty and came out quickly. Excellent value. I had some calamari tacos and my wife had the Scotch egg. We had the Whoopie pie and the Whiskey tart. It was all excellent. Clean easy to get to restrooms and views out to a... More

Hey the food is good and inventive, if you use hearing aids, well expect to knod and smile a lot. Lots of concrete floor and hard tables

We were in the area visiting the "underground world" of Pendleton, OR and decided to stop by the local brewery for some lunch and a taste the “local brews”. First outward impression: unique building with sense of character I would say... Inside was simple, nothing fancy, liked the table layout and decorations but what caught my eye, was a unique...

We stopped by on our way back to Portland after an icy trip over the Blue Mountains. I wish we were hungry because the menu looks yummy! Even the small eats at the bar look great! Good selection of wines (I'm enjoying a Walla Walla Syrah presently) and my fiancé is really enjoying his IPA!

We've been here several times after reading the reviews. Food is good, and atmosphere is great. Beer is awesome, but sucks if you still have 5 hours of driving left to go. Usually served within 30 minutes or so, but our last lunch took over an hour before getting our burgers and they weren't full.

We stop here a few times a year for superior pub food & good (growler-worthy) brews. My husband, a Reuben connoisseur, really likes their version. I always find something tasty and a little out-of-the way to order, like the Countess, their take on a croque monsieur. The Bruce Lee Porter is highly recommended, as well as the Righteous Indignation Red.... More

Good food and good beer in a typical brew pub setting. Family friendly and attentive staff. Close in to the downtown area.

Nice pub atmosphere where sports bar is in separate area for those who like a quieter dinner. Service was friendly and prompt. Fare accommodates both veggie and meat eaters. Sandwiches were good as were prices.

We were tired and hungry and our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant. We drove to the downtown area on a dreary rainy night and entered this quaint, charming restaurant. We are not beer drinkers but loved the food. The onion rings were some of the best I've ever had and my sandwich (turkey) was delicious. The atmosphere reminded me of... More
