“Comfortable and reliable local institution!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been going to Gubanc's for years and always have a well prepared meal. Known for it's homemade soups , which change daily, Gubanc's features a broad variety of meals from soups, salads and sandwiches to full meals like fresh fish or meatloaf. It is a cozy spot with a number of booths,a real local treasure, and while the food isn't the best I've ever had in my travels, it is definitely one of our personal go to spots in town, reliable for a good lunch or dinner.Well priced, too.

“Nice Little Spot in Lake Grove”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This Pub has been in town for years, and still keeps serving great food at a good price. Casual atmosphere, friendly staff, with some surprise food options. Love their Rueban. We have visited multiple times over the years and were never disappointed.

“Chicken n Dumplins!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Second visit for me. Started with mushroom soup. Hot and above average. Chicken and Dumplins were like soup, ate with a spoon but exceeded my expectations. Full of flavor. Great fresh baked bread. Comfort food. Highly recommended. Not too crowded on a Friday night but I went early, e.g. 6:30pm. I will likely return next time I'm in town.

“Middle of the road!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is a fairly comfortable, moderately priced diner. It was very crowded at 6 pm on a Tuesday night. The diners appeared to be older regulars. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive given how busy it was. The restaurant is fairly well partitioned which goes a long way to reducing the noise level.
The food? Mediocre! We had 2 seared scallop dinners, each prepared differently, and a meatloaf dinner. The scallops were properly seared, but lacking in the overall flavor that would make them standout from the crowd. The meatloaf was no better than any chain diner would serve. Mashed potatoes were nearly pureed, but the sauteed veggies were nice and not overcooked.
Safe uninteresting food. I left the restaurant feeling it would probably be the last time.

“A family favorite for decades”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This local gem has been owned and operated by the same family for three generations. Their key to success is quality ingredients, carefully prepared with time honored recipes (often improved) and served by friendly staff in a warm, low key atmosphere. Be prepared to wait for a table if you arrive during dinner hour.
Salads are great. Meatloaf is a standard (better than grandma used to make.)
There is no better place on a rainy Oregon evening.
