Great atmosphere overlooking the city of Hood River at night when it is all lit up. Nice sized sampler, did not try the food, but the menu was good looking and somewhat pricey with alot of steaks and seafood. Service however was horrible. My father and I sat there waiting to be served forever before someone payed attention to us, and even at that point they could not tell us about the beers without looking up at the board they were all posted on to tell us what styles they had on.

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, first things first.....get ready for some stairs! Behind the street level windows you will find the brewery. Go up the first set of stairs to find a couple of nice pool tables and the bathrooms. Go up another, inside set of stairs to find the bar/restaurant. The bar is fairly small as is the dining area, both with views of the river. Several outside patios/decks for fair weather seating. Food is somewhat overpriced, but for the area, itís probably no TOO bad. Service was good, as was the food. Beers were a bit above average, with the stout being particlularly good.

A nice environment with some Buddhist flags, Great scenery to look out over the Gorge and watch the wind surfers. There were SEVEN (7) beers on tap including 3 that were not listed on Ratebeer. There is a hike up to multiple levels, a bit of an adventure into this good olí house/lodge feel. The owner is very nice and walked around giving wine samples out.

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.

heard lots of great stuff about this place from lots of people. Went in, wasnít too big on the aesthetic of the place, kind of bare. But service was great, had a couple of their own brews that were really tasty, and the happy hour was awesome. Four of us ate and drank and our bill was $30 dollars!!!!

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!

Nice building with a fantastic view of the Columbia river. Watch the barges, windsurfers and kiters do their things. Beer is all theirs with a decent range of styles. Runs on the expensive side for food and drink. Service has always been fine, beers are passable.

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.

Had lunch here on the way to the RBSG04. Good food. I kept it simple with a salad with a vinaigrette for dressing. Beers were pretty good. The building is awesome though. We sat right next to a great big ass plate glass window and got to view the entirity of Hood River while eating/sampling.
