I had a day off, so my husband and I were out on an exploring expedition to visit some new places. We ended up in the Pendleton area, so after reading a few reviews, we decided to have lunch at The Bank. I truly enjoy restaurants in historic locations and the building obviously met this criteria. As you walk in, the hostess station was the façade of a teller's cage, but no teller or hostess to greet us for a couple of minutes. A lady came over and said just a minute and went to wipe a table off by depositing the contents on the floor. After waiting too long, the server finally came to take our order. Since I had read so much about the tenderloin, I knew what I was going to order before I sat down. Disappointedly, I was told they were out of tenderloins. We were there after the lunch hour about 1:00, so maybe they had a rush but you would think if they're known for something they would make sure they would have enough on hand. I ended up getting the BBQ Burger, which was fine. The coleslaw was good and the serving size of my lunch was more than an ample serving. My husband had a club sandwich of which the appearance was a little different than the typical triangular shape a club usually comes in but he said it was good. I had to flag down another waitress to get a refill on my drink which in my opinion should never happen. The food was enjoyed enough for a repeat visit but the personnel may cloud my decision.
