“Nice bar with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Best burger I've had in a long, long time. And the snapper fish and chips was amazing. Prices are reasonable and it's family-friendly with tables away from the bar. Staff is efficient and friendly. My husband and I traveled 25 miles just to have lunch, it's that good.

“Greasy food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The service was almost nonexistent. The food was greasy and we couldn't finish the meal because it tasted so bad. It's a cute bar and grill but the music was loud and made conversation impossible. Bandon has so many other wonderful eateries. Don't waste your time or money stopping here.

“Don't EAT the burgers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

If you want to loose wait, or visit the hospital then I recommend the burgers. The staff is pretentious without warrant. The Greek salad is made with chopped black olives. Totally clueless.
Once again, "DON'T EAT THE BURGERS." If you need a burger, go to Dairy Queen. Of course that is if you want to get cancer due to their Extreme charring. In other words, don't eat burgers in Bandon Oregon.

“Probably used to be good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Mediocre food, the wait staff was uninformed (i.e., didn't know if pinot noir was red or white wine), and the quality control was iffy. Our food took quite a while even though there were only a handful of people in the restaurant, and the beer selection on tap was poor. We had to wait a very long time to be helped. Cheap drinks, but otherwise not a fun place. There was a bar down the block that looked way better, and we wished we had gone there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Tried it oput with my daughter and what a blast! food was excellent, drinks fun and well poured. Fun crowd and we went on 2 different nights and it was the same great time! A definately great place to drop in. Not the standard "pub grub" but several unique items to try.
