“Coolest staff in Eugene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2010

Dave runs a great place! He's the main man, and he's always friendly and smiling- you'll definitely leave there smiling if you're lucky enough to get Dave at your table. Some of the other staff are really great too (my favorites are Laurel and Tom). If you get a newbie, be patient, because whoever they are, they're being trained by some of the best people in Eugene. This was one of the first places I stopped in Eugene, and now it is a must whenever I am in town. Yes, it is a brewery, but it is a great restaurant and fun place to go regardless if you drink or not. (Minors aren't allowed after 10p). Oh, and check out the free games on Wed and Fri nights- the prizes are hilarious!

“Great burger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2009

We've only been here for lunch, so I can't speak to the bar scene, but the food is great. They serve Kobe-style beef at a reasonable price - for those wondering if it's worth paying $5 more for a "Kobe" burger, it is. I'm sure it's not 100% authentic, but true Kobe (Wagyu to be precise) beef from Japan would be sacrilegious to make into a burger (and likely cost you $150!), so having something domestic that approximates Kobe's qualities is worth paying a bit more for. They melt in your mouth, especially with some of the Rogue Creamery bleu cheese on top. Heck, even the "Haute Dog" made from the Kobe-style beef is stupid-good.

Rest of their food is good too - the Hazelnut bread is a great appetizer, and the Rogue Dip sandwich is pretty tasty too. Fries are pretty consistently crispy.

Only knocking them down one bubble in rank for the crummy atmosphere; here again, in the evening with a bar crowd that'd probably be acceptable.
