Great Restaurant/ Brewpub in a Great Location

I was there on a cold cloudy day, but wow what a view. Like all Mc Menimans, great food, great beer and a top-notch staff. I don't know why they were so busy on a mid-week afternoon.

great place for any time but happy hour out side is the best. Food is great and their White Rabbit white wine is also great.

Went for the tuna salad sandwich, it was really good today, sunny afternoon with great service made for a good time. We also had the chowder and Cajun tots, great as always.

We usually eat here when we stay at the Homewood across the street. Outdoor dining on a sunny day makes this a very popular place for locals. Read: expect to wait. But they do a great job on takeout. Veggie bowls weren't on the online menu but the person who took our order mentioned them when I asked about vegetarian... More

My wife and I enjoyed our food and drinks, but nothing really stood out. It is a nice place to go, but I feel there are better choices for food and beer in the Vancouver, WA area.

On a nice day it is fun to sit outside with a great view of the Columbia river. McMenamins all have the same menu and their craft beer. The service is great, After your meal you can walk along the Columbia Renaissance trail that runs right in the front of the restaurant.

The setting along the Columbia River is fabulous. Drinks are very good - both beer and cocktails are well prepared. Happy Hour is the best value, but the menu is small (however it does include steamer clams which are delicious). Cajun tot's are always great. Pricing is a bit higher than most other McMenamin's. 2 entrees/sandwiches and 2 drinks can... More

There are great views of the river for your viewing enjoyment, however food service is slow ( even when the two of us ordered salads) and am not impressed with lack of appearance by the servers. Many looked like they rolled out of bed and showed up. My salad (Azteca) was very tasty ( portion seemed a little small) and.... More

The food is what you would expect at any pub. Location is what attracts the crowds. You will enjoy the view but the service and food will not be why you will return. That said, it is worth a visit.
