“Casual bar and food with excellent deck outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

There are lots of small problems, such as the sprawling bar area looking as if was reaching its last years, cash only and no credit cards accepted, and no bar service outside. But you don't go to Stumptown Grill for upscale dining. The beer list is good, and there is ordinary wine for those who skip beer. The food was above average. A wedge salad was double the normal size, a brisket au jus in French roll was pretty good, a BLT was excellent and the humus plate with pita wedges was very good. Sitting outside the bar, on the deck, to watch the river made drinks and food seem even better. My wife ordered for the three of us, brought out a bucket with cutlery and mustard/katchup, napkins and so on, and went back to the bar for refills on the drinks while food was brought to us by a waitress after we had ordered and paid cash for it at the bar. The setting is very casual and relaxed, fun when you like beer outside and don't need formality.

“Decent beer, below average food, good atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great local beer on draft. Good family atmosphere with games outside on the deck (billiards, been bag toss, etc.) + a jukebox. Food is mediocre.
Cash only.

“A wonderful surprise in the middle of the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The beer was terrific-just the right amount of hops. The pulled pork sandwich was fantastic, as was the frilled chicken. Beautiful view and patio with very friendly service. But leave the credit cards at home - this is a cash only bar.

“Tasty food and great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We were staying across the road and came here twice for dinner. The beer was fantastic and although the bar seemed to be populated by local regulars there was a nice friendly feel to the place. The batter for the fish and chips was especially tasty.

“YUMMY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We had dinner here one night. The place is very unassuming if not run-down looking from the front. They have a huge balcony out back that overlooks the river. It is a beautiful place to eat dinner or grab a drink. They have pool tables and air hockey outside. The food was very good and you can order a beer sampler which includes 4 beers.
