“Where we go if we can't decide on another place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

feels like home to me, we've gone so many times, maybe we just get a beer and talk, sometimes it's the fries that lure us back, one wintery night I had stew, feels like home to me

“Lots to look at and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

It was a fun place, staff were great and the food good. Lots of interesting stuff to look at on the walls. I could not tell you about the area since it was dark when we arrived and I am not familar with tis area. We were there on a Monday night and it was a relaxed, fun, pub atmosphere. Not dark either.

“Cajun tots and Rubinator”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2011

McMenamins (any location) is probably a must-see when in Portland for tourists as there's so many different locations and the local brewed beers are quite tasty. The cajun tots were amazing--crispy and not greasy with good cajun flavor and not too spicy. I had both the Ruby beer and a "Rubinator" which was a combo of Ruby and Terminator beers, which were both delicious.
