Good variety of craft beers and spirits. The food gets more adventurous than typical bar food. It makes for an exciting meal. My wife and I enjoyed the ambience...not too loud, but not too quiet either.

We really enjoyed this pub with a great beverage selection and an emphasis on all things porky! After an hour wait (nothing shocking for a Friday night), we were more than ready to eat! My wife ordered a chimichurri topped steak and I ordered the...poutine with pork belly and additional lardons. The steak was perfectly cooked and tasty, accompanied by roasted veggies. My poutine was excellent, full of cheesy and pork goodness. Our server took great care of us, making sure we had full drinks to go with our meal. We will definitely come back to Oxenfré whenever we return to Brookings!More

This is my number one go to spot. The mixed drinks are on point. The door is always good. You can’t go wrong here. Enjoy!

Excellent food, service is a little slow, but it didn’t ruin the meal. I got the deviled eggs, and the chicken and waffles. Both were delicious. Great selection of beer as well. I’d definitely return.

Great meal. We have been traveling down the coast of Oregon, and while we’ve had some delicious seafood meals, were were about “fished out”. We had the hanger steak here and it was really delicious. It’s served with a mix of fresh veggies, as well...as the mashed potatoes. The veggies were cooked perfectly, the potatoes were heavenly, and the meat was so tender. Loved this meal. My hubby and I also shared the mixed greens salad, which had so many tasty components: Humboldt fog cheese, almonds, beets, grapefruit. Yummy! The cocktails are also great, as is the service. We have been traveling through Oregon for the last 10 days, and this was one of our favorite meals. Thank you Oxenfre!More

We had driven 6+ hours from Portland with smoke from wildfires making the trip challenging. We arrived in Brookings early evening and wanted dinner before calling it a night. Oxenfre was the perfect choice with an excellent dinner, good drink selection and prompt service. We...are in Brookings for 4 more days and will make a return tripMore

The Pacific Cod Tacos were AMAZING!! Passed through Brookings and so glad we found this spot. We’re still talking about these tacos.
