Has all the typical food that one expects. Nothing particularly noteworthy. The wings and bread pudding were great. The braised short ribs were not.

The McMenamin brothers operate a series of restaurants/brewhouses/historic hotels in Oregon and Washington and this is one of the best. The food was really good at the Old St. Franci, and the whole vibe is uber cool and retro at the same time. The way they have restored and taken advantage of the space offered by a former school is truly remarkable from an architectural and decorative perspective, and their commitment to sustainability is the icing on the cake. For a very unique dining experience, I would recommend McMenamins.

Sitting outside by the fire is one of the major highlights. The food is good, the beer is cold, and people watching is superb. Outside, at O'Kane's (the old garage, since the Father's used to house an old car here) is a great place for a drink, sitting around the fireplace.

We came here with friends, while on the Bend Ale Trail. We snagged stools at the bar, ordered samplers, and spent an hour or more with our tasters and chatting with the bartenders. Nice time. I was pleased to get a look inside this place finally, and see how they'd repurposed the old school. Next trip, we'll come for a film and pizza, and enjoy more of the outside garden areas. I agree with a previous reviewer: great place for some people watching!

Had a great chicken pizza and turkey sandwich here. Beer was excellent and the staff very friendly.
Would eat here again if ever given the option.
