Nice little pub. Friendly staff. Don't forget to ask for the $5.00 cab ride any place in town if you over do it with the beer. It's a great deal!

Really the consistently best and hippest place in The Dalles. Love the outdoor patio, fun funky vibe, great music, unique and interesting food that tastes great. Excellent service, even when busy.
