Great selection of beers, rotate taps so you can try other beers, plus carry their own which is good. Food is fairly priced. Good selection.

Lots of TV screens, Excellent food. Try the Thai Chicken Wings! Salads good, service quick, live music sporadically. Good place to hang out, if you find yourself in The Dalles.

Service is on slow side but food and drinks are amazing. There's a sitting area outside. Great place to go on a summer evening.

Pulled off the interstate to take a break from the pouring rain and get a bite to eat. It was late on a Thursday evening. Were surprised to find the quaint little pub open!
