Had lunch with family on a beautiful Central Oregon summer afternoon. This was our first time here. The patio was not crowded, and there were musicians in front. It was simply lovely! The food was excellent, from the carrot soup of the day, to the crab sandwich. The lemonade was perfect, served in jars, not too tart and not too sweet. Prices were reasonable and there were lots of veggie options. We can't wait to return for breakfast! Chow will be very easy to recommend.

I have had the pleasure of eating both breakfast and lunch at Chow in Bend and every time I order something on their menu it is delicious!

They have the best bloody marys, served in cute mason jars. They also have many other fun drinks available to order. This past time I got an apple juice drink with sparkling soda and lemon and it was one of the best fruit drinks I have had!

The menu offers so many amazing options, I always have a hard time picking just one thing to order. Its good to go in groups so you can get to try all of the amazing flavors and fresh ingredients they use. They also have great outdoor seating when the sun is out and live music on the weekends which is fun to listen to when there is a wait. Ge their early so you can get your name on the list, especially on the weekends!

I particularly like that they have a garden outside of the main restaurant area and use local items to prepare their foods.

Whenever I visit Bend, Chow is always on the agenda for breakfast and lunch!

A funky building that immediately makes you feel at home. The wait staff was prompt and efficient. The food is special, with subtle flavors in generous portions. Don't miss this place when you visit Bend.

"Chow" does not begin to describe how good this food was. Each dish was amazing- quite a feat pleasing 6 adults and 2 children. The variety of flavors pleased the vegetarians and omnivores equally.

On a weekend day you will wait about 30 minutes or more for a table but the meal is never disappointing and if the weather is nice you can wait out in their garden area.

Very eclectic menu with flavor combinations you wouldn't think would work but are very delicious. A version of pulled pork eggs benedict, or cornmeal fried tomatoes, or corn cakes... all local and sustainable ingredients and 3 different kinds of house made hot sauce - and that is just breakfast. Some people a few tables over had some fantastic looking sandwiches.

They also have a full bar so if you are in the mood for a bloody mary with a full pickled vegetable complement or a mimosa this is the place to be.

It's hard to go wrong with anything from the menu.
