“Great calamari, nice cocktails, chilled out spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2006

I go back to Brian's again and again... the deep fried calimari has this perfect batter, and they throw in chopped fresh peppers as well, which add a great kick. seared ahi with wasabi potato rolls is another favorite we order over and over. cocktails are well done, and the service is pretty darn good, with a minor bump here and there. the wine list is good as well, with a small but well selected list by the glass.

if you get seated in the back, there are a few tables with a river view.

“Reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2006

Average or above food. The menu is creative but it doesn't always work. For example, I had salmon, but it was farm raised pink salmon (not very flavorful) - in an area of great salmon. But the prices are very reasonable. Good beer, wine selection and nice atmosphere.

“Best meal on my vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2006

My husband and I ate at Brian's Pourhouse the last night of our week-long driving tour of eastern Oregon and this was our favorite meal. We each had the salmon, prepared two different ways, and it was heavenly. The beer and wine selection is quite good as well. The only downside is the small and a bit noisy dining room, but the service was very good. Would love to go back.

“Fun Atmosphere For Adults !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2006

Good wine. Good food. Good looking people. Parking is awful, but it's worth the trouble. Inside and outside seating. Great place to hangout or enjoy a dinner.
