Terrific place in an up and coming neighborhood. We are beer geeks and their tap list is deep and interesting. The food was surprisingly good. Must admit the fries were addicting and the burgers much better than average. The salad was also extra special. It was busy and the waitress had to be reminded to bring a beer, but no... More

I expected the fine assortment of northwest beer on tap but I was delightfully surprised by the best hamburger and salad that I've had for lunch...ever. The decor matched by being classy and comfortable.

If you're looking for a beer that's Oregon made, but not the ol' standby, come to Nepo 42! The bartender was friendly, the beer was tasty and the happy hour was delicious. Go play a game of softball at the park across the street and then head over to quench your thirst and feed your stomach!

We went here for happy hour and it was great! They have a neat sitting area outside-with good people watching. Their happy hour menu was awesome-tons of choices and good prices-real happy hour prices. We had their wings, fries, and veggie burger, and all were great. I would recommend this as a great happy hour spot!

A great local pub with a great microbrew selection and great food. Too bad they got rid of Sunday brunch.
