Though there are a lot of restaurants in Portland, this is on my list when I make it up here. The place has great variety, everything from portobello mushroom burgers to grilled halibut.

Went here after Powell's on a rainy day with kids. My husband and I shared a beer sampler which was good. The food and service was quite good too. It was starting to get busy after a soccer game which only made for a livelier place. We thoroughly enjoyed the casual, fun and family friendly brew pub.

Ya know ya got a good thing at a brewpub when all the guys have beards. Then there's that one guy without a beard who ignores you and treats you as if you've ruined his day. THEN comes the gal with red hair and restores your smile. Thank you gal with the red hair. The beardless wonder was annoying. Get... More

We were at Powell's, around the corner, and this seemed to be the place to be. there was quite a wait, but they gave us a buzzer, which allowed us to return to Powell's for a while. The meal we had was pretty good -- burger, mac n cheese (not very cheesy, but very tasty), soup. We enjoyed all of... More

From the moment we walked in we were blown away. What amazing decor, friendly staff, great managers, awesome beer. Brian was a great server and was there when you needed him. Made great recommendations for the city. Staff owned and you could tell. Everyone was happy and obviously loved working there.

We live in PDX and have been going here for years. The staff are always friendly, engaging, and have great sense humor. The beer is by far my favorite when compared to other breweries....definitely a seasonal beer junkie but you can never go wrong with anything I. The menu. Order the fondue pretzel. Don't even think about it, just do... More

While on a business trip, my coworkers and I visited this popular establishment for dinner and what a great dinner it was. We arrived at about 6 PM and there was a 15 minute wait on a Wednesday night. It was a quick 15 minutes and well worth it! The staff welcomed us and were very friendly. Once we were... More

After an afternoon at Powell's, we decided to go for a treat at the brewery. Food was good, service was excellent, beer was great. I know there are other breweries in Portland, but this place had quality. Family friendly, good kids menu.
