good beer, good food!

Cheese curds were awesome! The brews were good. I really liked the stout. The IPA was pretty good, too. Decent menu with some really interesting options.

It was dead,three tables and all already served and I sat for ten minutes! Waiting for someone to help me. It was almost 9, but that's also the reason I didn't leave. I got in late to Pendleton and needed some food and drink. Food was good beer was good and if you don't mind being ignored for awhile ok... More

We love the Prodigal Son, the Brews are always consistent, the food is 75% consistent. We continue to come back monthly as we live just over a hour away. The Calamari tacos are the only thing I ever order. The rest of the family, order burgers, fish and pasta, and say it is good but not always the best! The... More

OK, this is a microbrewery, but it caters to feeding families. There is a play area for kids, a kids' menu and the wait staff is fun. We ate there and the food was AWESOME and reasonably priced. We also sampled some brews, and my husband and I were both impressed.

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

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.
