Great View, Good Food!

GREAT Location right on the river. Food was good, beer was better, pretty fast seating outside on a Saturday night at 5:30. Service was excellent, and did I mention the view is incredible? I'd definitely go back!

We went just for drinks. I thought the beer was somewhat lacking. It was very interesting watching the staff from our seats at the bar. There wasn't a lot of room behind the bar and the staff had to dance around each other. However, all the staff were friendly, worked well together and seemed to enjoy their work.

We had an AMAZING time here last night. It was a Friday and we showed up at 5:30, and we were really hoping for an outdoor seat, but there was a 35-45 minute wait for outside seating and little shorter for indoor seating, so we skipped that idea and just went straight to the bar where there was open seats....

We regularly patronize this place! Great meals (fish and chips my favorite along with a Hammerhead ale. Great taste, spectacular view of the Columbia itself. After dinner or lunch, you can stroll the cement walkway that will take you a mile or two if you walk full length - and back! Truly the sight of sails on the river on... More

Terrific beers, and food. This brewpub is great for enjoying a meal with family/friends. As with many of the McMenamins we've visited, the service can be slow, so don't go if you're in a hurry - or at least let them know in advance. During peak meal times there is usually a wait for a table, especially for outdoor seating... More

We got to sit inside but against the window overlooking the Columbia River which was a great start to our lunch. It was hot out and cool inside but very busy so we waited for 25 minutes to be seated. The beer is good and the I would recommend the Wilbur which is a great burger with the fries. Reasonable... More
