My son and I ate dinner at Lear's on Oct. 17th after a steelhead fishing trip on the Grande Ronde river. My son had eaten breakfast at Lear's previously and wanted to go back for a dinner. The beer selection is super, not only did we find the Terminal Gravity varieties we were looking for but there were several other craft and big brewery draft beers as well. For food, there were several specials available and a good selection of regular menu items. I had one of the best Rueben's I've ever had. My son had an enormous burger (called the Bodacious). Both came with fries cooked just right. They were delicious. We visited with the owners, nice people who cook and serve. Finally I was happy with the bill when it came--I'm used to Portland prices and two of us ate and drank for about half of what we'd pay in Portland.
The dinner was so good we decided to come back for breakfast the next morning and were not disappointed. I was surprised to see brats as the sausage on offer so I asked for one instead of the standard two--which was just right. My eggs were cooked perfectly and the home-made hash browns were super. Can't remember what my son had but I heard no complaints.
I spend time each year in the UK so am suspicious of places that advertise themselves as pubs. However Lear's is not a pretender--it has the good beers, friendly service, and feel of a "local" with much better food than all but a few of the UK pubs I have spent time in.
If you are traveling or staying in the upper Wallowa Valley (Enterprise, Joseph, Wallowa Lake) you won't go wrong eating and drinking at Lear's.
