“Fun atmosphere. . . a "guy's" place for sure!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

My college age son is visiting Bend for the first time so we asked around for places to take him. Brothers John was recommended more than once so we came for dinner. Fun atmosphere, lots of TVs with sports (perfect for him!) and good bar food. The mac & cheese with chicken was amazing. However, other dishes not so great. . .only average in my opinion. Service was super slow (however, extremely nice staff at the same time!).

“Good pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

In our quest to try every restaurant in Bend we decided to have a late lunch at this downtown Bend location. The decor is warm with dark wood throughout. Bar is large and seating is average for a pub. We sat at bar and ordered a standard burger and a portabello sandwich. The service was good. We liked that we could order fresh veggies as a side instead of standard fries. The burger was touted as two 1/4 pound burgers but did not seem that large. It was tasty and the veggie side was great. My wife's portabello sandwich was very good. They use locally baked breads and that made a difference. Value was good with each of our sandwiches coming it at or below $10. Their beer selection was also very good. Bad news is that they do not have a happy hour! We will come back though.

“Up and coming favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

One of the best in town, but not completely known and overblown like other places. Consistently good atmosphere, great food, and reasonable prices. Good for couples, groups, and even families with kids.

“Casual Pub w/Lots of Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A nice clean pub with lots of great beer on tap and some count-on comfort food like nachos, mac-n-cheese, burgers, pulled pork, etc. It was all good!
