Ordered room service for dinner from the Pub during our hotel stay. The red salmon was fishy (but the accompanying Yukon mashed potatoes were wonderful) and the Hammerhead BBQ chicken pizza and green salad were “just okay.” As usual, the beer and cocktail were excellent....Spent about $70 before tip, no extra fee for room service.More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at McMenamins recently. The beer list is long and satisfying. The food menu is limited, but what is available is tasty. Service was fast and efficient. All COVID restrictions were followed. The back patio is a great place to...sit.More

While we have stayed and eaten in Bend a couple of times in the past, we had never been to the downtown area. We were pleasantly surprised by the numerous restaurants and pubs. With so many choices, we opted for an old standby, McMenamins. This...restaurant located in an old catholic school was a really neat place to eat and the food was terrific. You can’t beat their tater tots. And while we ate inside, there was nice outdoor seating as well. We hope to come back.More

It is like a Museum, with lots of history. Many nooks and crannies. You can have a good conversation without all the open noise. Plenty of outdoor seating during Covid times. Good sunny weather when we were there. Good variety of food.

We went to the restaurant yesterday, Sunday morning around 9. A brunch menu was provided. None of us are big eaters so we ordered small breakfasts. As we sat drinking coffee and hot chocolate, we noticed the table of 4 people seated closest to us...was seated at least 15 to 20 minutes after us. We realized something was amiss when they were served their brunch meals while we had not been served our meals. Clearly we had been forgotten. We asked for our check. To the restaurant staff's credit we were comped our drinks. However, we won't be going back.More

My wife and I walk 5 morning a week for exercise, often going past McMenamins. Twice now we have stopped for breakfast. We have shared the pancakes and beakfast burrito. I am no fan of burritos. They weigh a ton and taste like cardboard. I...have changed my tune. This is the best breakfast burrito. Great flavor and you don't feel like you just eat 4 pounds of beans. The pancakes are very good as well. We sat outside in the garden each time. The morning sun felt so good. I am pleased to say they strictly follow the guidelines for covid 19.More

I ate there several times and all the times I do I’m breathe taken. Great local food with excellent ingredients choices. The food is always at the right temperature and comes in time. Great service too from the staff...

We ate dinner at McMenamins twice in four days while staying in Bend (Aug 2019). It had that good blend of great food, good beer, friendly service, nice outdoor ambience at moderate prices. We visited based on reviews and didn't feel we were let down....We parked down the street and walked to the restaurant where we were seated on the patio under an umbrella on both visits. We enjoyed mahi mahi with rice and beans and salmon with brocolini and potatoes on our first visit and a more casual pizza and beer on our second visit. The waiters were friendly and laid back, yet attentive. If you found this review useful, please click the THANK button. Happy travels.More

Was there on 2/7 with a large group. Had to wait a short time for a table of 8, not long at all. Service was great, food was very good. We had salad, pizza, burgers, steak, fish, chicken and Mac and cheese. Everyone in our...party was extremely happy with the food. The prices are extremely reasonable Would highly recommend a visitMore

Really like the food, but the drinks are just okay; even the beer. Everyone likes different beers. The atmosphere is fantastic as is other McMenamins. We love watching movies there.
