Can be a little noisy, but it's a sports bar, after all. High stools or regular tables, service is good if it isn't too busy, prices are reasonable, a great place for a casual dinner with friends. I like their salads (FRESH) and their burgers are good, too. Generous portions.

Got to town late and was told this is one of the few restaurants that stays open late. The staff was slow and I had to get up and get my own silverware after our food was finally served. My burger was tepid and was well done about 15 minutes before I got it. Garlic fries were burnt. We were starving and desperate, but I would never go back.

Great Burgers and home made fries. A tad busy when we were there so the service was a bit slow but understanable. We really like our food and the chocolate martini dessert was heaven sent!!!

We were in Bandon for vacation from 9/4/12 to 9/8/12 and ended up eating here 3 times during our stay. The first night we were tired from traveling all day and wanted a quick and easy dinner. McFarlin's was the right choice for us. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the brisket sandwich, both were delicious. There is the option to add a chopped salad for an additional fee if you don't want the fries so we had a salad with one and the fries with the other. Very happy with both. We also decided to order a sausage and pepperoni pizza to take back to our rental house to have for snacks during the week. It was a great idea, the pizza was really good! Our server Sue-Lynn (might not be spelled correctly, so my apologies) was very friendly and gave us great service. The second night we were coming back from playing golf and wanted to watch some football so back to McFarlin's we went. Sue-Lynn was the only server on the floor because the other server was out and SHE ROCKED THE HOUSE! People just kept coming in and coming in and she never waivered. The service was fantastic and the food was just as good as the night before. On our last day in town, we stopped in for lunch and had a slightly different experience. The food was still great, the server wasn't quite as good. Glad it wasn't our first experience or we might not have returned. She was initally friendly but it went downhill from there. When she brought the food and we noticed that the wrong salad dressing was put on my salad, rather than offering to correct the error, she asked, "did you try it?" Once the correct salad was delivered, she never came back to find out how we were doing, if we needed anything else or fill our water. We did see her standing at the bar talking to someone so we know there was time to check on her tables. She did swoop in a couple of times when we were done eating and it was time to pay to start clearing the table before we were out of the way. Sue-Lynn rocks!!, Jennifer, not quite so much. We would still return just because of our original experiences and the food

We are from Chicago and when we travel, we notice that good pizza is hard to find. We tried a few places on our trip to Oregon and McFarlin's was definitely the best - just like home!
