Tried on two attempts to visit during posted hours, yet they were not open. On second attempt an employee coming in some 20 minutes after posted open hours laughed and said they "needed to change that".Slackers. Will try again next time when in town and re rate, until then, fail.

Took my wife and son (2 yrs) in for Sunday lunch. They were ready for a little person with a high chair and some crackers right off the bat. We had the salmon burger, clam chowder and the childís fish and chips. The food was good but the salmon burger was pricey at $12 for lunch. They offered about nine of their own beers with a descent variety within them. My wife sampled at least four of their beers (4 oz each) and all were good. I had 12 oz of Slyís Demise and MacStallion Scotch Ale. Both were good too. The view from their dining area of the Columbia River and downtown Hood River is tough to beat. Hood River offers more than a few good breweries and all are worth a stop.

OK place. Nice view. Our server was friendly but seemed to have too many tables. Food was just OK, somewhat underwhelming. I got the beer sampler. A few were below average and bland; the others were just average. Most of them lacked depth, and I lost interest after just one or two sips. Guess I expected more. We didnít end up staying for additional pints.

The setup of this brewpub is certainly different than most. Big Horse has great sitting areas inside or out with great views of Hood River and the Columbia. It was a fun place to hang out with pool tables and good tunes. The beer selection was decent with 6 or 7 of their own then one guest tap. The beers were a little pricey outside of happy hour but I find that is the standard for the area. Definitely a nice place to hit up after playing in the wind and water of the Columbia or taking a drive up Mt. Hood.

I waited along time to visit this place and once I did finally go i wondered why I waited so long. They got good beer, food and the view is something else. Make 3 stops in Hoods river and this needs to be one. Cheers you will have fun just be sire to be in shape the stair case is long.

Overall a good experience. Located on the upper side of Hood River overlooking the town and river. Lots of nice decor and comfortable seating. The patrons were relaxed and enjoyable. The food was tasty and definately the chef takes his or her work seriously. Excellent beer and will be rated seperately.

stairs are not nearly as bad as some make it out to be. view is great. staff was friendly. it was a wednesday around 7-8 oclock. was not that busy. walked in and had a few employees stare at us until someone eventually sat us. (think it was the water girl)
ordered an ipa and wife ordered a coke.
water had 4 ice cubes in it (thought i was in europe). the coke was flat, and the ipa was average to decent. (aroma was good, but finished a little harsh)
ordered steak tips and a burger. took a little while to get our food, and when it came, there was a hair on the burger bun. let it go. the fries were warm, but just barely. the steak was a little over cooked and was hard to cut with my butter knife. the burger looked like a pre packaged burger that was terribly dry.
we only ate about half our meal. and for the level of the food, was way over priced. maybe it was a bad day.
once again, staff was nice, view was great, and the girl who kept filling my water, was the only one really on the ball.

Very neat pub overlooking the Columbia river. The beers were generally good and the food on par with bar food. Prices were reasonable.

Had an enjoyable experience here. Iíve been here several times and the service is always hit or miss. They always have on a few standards and some rock solid seasonals, which is the draw for me. Everyday beers are basic, but brewed true to style. First of all you have to really want to try the beers here, because you will get your exercise doing it, specfically up 3 1/2 flights of stairs. The views of downtown and the river are spectacular especially in the fading light heading into night when the town lights up. Itís worth it!
