Close to the beach and right on the golf coarse. It was a seat yourself. Started with cup of chowder, on to Halibut fish & chips, Cascade Head Crab & Shrimp Melt, and 8" Hawaiian Pizza. Great Tillamonk Strawberry milk shake. Good food and atmosphere .

My husband and I have been here before with his parents and our son. We had a great experience and breakfast at that time and wanted to take our friends here. We came this time with two other couples and 3 children total. It was such a 180 from our last experience that we were embarrassed to be raving about... More

This is a good option if you are staying at the hotel or nearby condominiums. Like most McMenamin's bars there are plenty of options on the menu - burgers, fish and chips, salads, soup, etc. They have quite a few beers as well as a full cocktail menu. We went here multiple times during our 4 days at the hotel.... More

I have not been to a McMenamins establishment and not been satisfied. Unfortunately we came for drink only as we had already eaten elsewhere. We came as beer connoisseurs and was not disappointed.

Things got off to a bit of a slow start when we arrived and seated ourselves. We sat there for about 15 minutes and were beginning to get annoyed, when finally a cheery fellow named Maxwell approached and stated that he would be our server. Great service! We ordered a 6 beer sampler. My favorite by far was the double... More

This is our 4th McMenamins experience and we weren't disappointed. Katie Sue, our server, was so enjoyable, attentive, and courteous. My crab mac and cheese could have been heated more, but it was tasty anyway. Pulled pork sandwich: as expected and good.

Service was excellent when we stopped by for Happy Hour. We were initially going for dinner, but we're open to selections off the HH menu. Slider was VERY GOOD, as was the Chowder.

I went to this location with my mom and my 2 children. When we were arrived there were very few patrons, the sign said to seat our selves and while the staff acknowledged us that was about all they did. We got settled and I went to get menus (having kids I know the cock is ticking as soon as... More

We came here in the rain so not much of a view, but we had a nice time having a drink and a bit of lunch. I tried two special drinks which were both excellent and wasn't overly hungry so ended up getting a hummus plate and taking half of it to go but our server was very helpful with... More
