Nice menu, friendly folks as you might expect in this little town. We stopped in for lunch. Only place in Oregon I found Moose Drool beer on tap.

I went in alone, sat at the counter/bar. Nice vib, happy tables of people, nearly full at 6:30pm Sun. Outstanding calzone, worth going back for just to eat it again, perfect crispy crust, great filling, piping hot.

Burgers and chicken were over-cooked. Flavors lacking. Just go for the beer and the outdoor seating. Expect to wait for service as well.

This restaurant is horrible. We dropped in for a beer and pizza on a crowded night when three people were celebrating their birthday, including the owner. We were seated at the small bar and for the next hour had a bird’s eye few of one horrific event after another. Flies – in abundance throughout the restaurant – crawled over every visible surface. On shelves above the bar, flies crawled in and over wine glasses that were later used to serve customers. While three of the four wait people appeared to be highly motivated and trying to render professional service, it was the fourth who appeared to have an attitude. We witnessed this one waiter do the following: Having dropped utensils on the filthy floor, picked them up and served to customers; Having run out of beer glasses, rinsed them off in cold water and used them again; Having lost track of what beer he’d started to pour, handed the glass to a customer (young man standing at the bar, waiting to order) to taste and determine whether it was beer A or beer B, then filled it and served to a different customer; Used his hands to scoop ice into drinks. About our meal: beer served in a plastic cup was lukewarm and pizza was just OK. This place may have a good reputation, but we would never, ever, ever go there again.

Set on Main Street with a relaxing patio area. Decent food, but excellent beer. Good place to spend an evening.
