Wonderful Brew Pub with great beer and Cider options. You can sit outside and overlook the river. The staff was really friendly. There is good bar food with a gluten free menu. Nice oasis in Eugene.

Well, it rolls by. On the deck one can dream and drink a cold McM's lager, Pilsner or IPA. One can also order up a pretty good burger and fries. I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The deck in summer is the best. Recommended

Very good place for a quiet dinner and drinks for a couple or small family. Mellow atmosphere, nice decor and a view of the Willamette River.

The interior is really quirky - combination Native American, Ding Dynasty, and tiki bar. The view from the bar looks out on a river lines by beautiful trees (not sure what river or what kind of trees) - great view! I stopped by for an appetizer and beer; dark star cauliflower "wings" and a terminator stout. Both were spectacular. I... More

Billed as McM's newest Tiki bar, the Kapu Hut is greatly underwhelming. As always with McM, the service is excellent, as are the drinks. The issue is the whole Tiki bar thing. There is very little Polynesian influence in the decor, unless you count bamboo. There's plenty of that. Most of the decor is African, Japanese, or possibly Chinese in... More

The North Bank is a lovely building in a picturesque location. It takes more than that to be great. Service was questionable at best. Slow and uninterested. And.... the food was the same. Very uninteresting. Just had a burger and I couldn't bring myself to finish. I always finish my burgers. They get those few it addressed then I'll be... More

After a very hectic and long day at work, it was a joy to be shown to a table by the river. Soothing sounds of water, fresh air, and an amazing glass of Ruby (a lovely crisp beer!) helped me to wind down to a level that will let me sleep tonight! Business trips should always be like this! Good... More

The food and service at McMenamin's North Bank, as always, is very good. You can't make a mistake here. Having said that, you must be aware that the place is a busy stop and waiting is the norm. The real reason for this review requires a bit of pre planing. Check out the advertising for an appearance of Will Moore... More

If you've ever eaten at a McMenamin's, you know that the food is pretty good. Always consistent and definitely above average for a pub. The North Bank in Eugene offers outdoor dining on the Willamette River, a nice little bar (The Kapu) and all of the ambience of a McMenamin's. We had a bowl of West African Peanut soup (HIGHLY...
