Visited early on a Thursday evening, and, wow, was it ever packed with customers! Very busy bar area, with two TVs showing sports. So noisy that people had to shout to each other. Nicely designed, though, with massive wooden beams, ceiling fans, and NW-themed carved post and lintel "gates" into the dining area. 20 taps going: six "classics" / one seasonal / two casks / 10 "brewersís choices / one "pub reserve". Special bottles, too, including the latest Abyss. This place is great for trying pub exclusive brews, which wonít show up elsewhere and most of which are very good, some of which are great. Good, limited, pub food menu, with local ingredients and several items made with Deschutes beers or beer ingredients -- but food is a bit pricey here. The big problem is the crowds and the noise (hence the low ambiance score). Sort of a mix of families and very loud yuppies, with the yuppies barking and snarking at each other. I wouldnít even try to imagine what itís like on weekend nights. Go early and get out before it fills up.

Visited December 11 2013. Abyss on nitro tap was great but other beers quite average. Seems to be quite popular place.

Big showy brewpub for a big brewery in a big city. This place wasnít bad at all, and would definitely go there again, but something is lost when there are hundreds of people in the room and youíre just trying to geek out on beer. The wife had an Abyss on nitro and looked like she might cry with happiness. Deschutes definitely offers solid beers, but our experience here was-meh.

Stopped in for a late lunch around 3:00 and the place was already crowded. Basically a nice restaurant with a bar. Cool view of the brewing operation but you can only see it when going to the restroom. Deschutes beers are good but the selection on this day was average, I was hoping for something special that you canít normally get. Timing is everything I suppose. Food was average and pricy. Service was outstanding, attentive and fun on a very crowded afternoon. Overall I enjoyed and will be back.

The tap house is attractive to the eye, but I felt that it left me wanting more from a place that is so heavily associated with good beer. In fact, it feels much more like a fancy restaurant than a tap house, even at the bar. Every time we wanted another beer or food, we had to go up to the bar to ask since no one ever came by the table. The beer selection is very good, having all/nearly all of Deschutes beers on tap at any given time (that are in season). The food also was very good, however the prices were outrageous for food. I think I payed $6-$7 for fries... Overall, this public house is not one of my favorites, and I would only recommend it if you are looking for a nice dinner with a good beer, or are a die-hard Deschutes beer fan.

Visited this place twice while in Portland. It seems like a up scale but pub/bar with a slightly corporate feel but its all their beers, the decor is interesting, and the service is friendly. If you sit at the bar no minors are allowed but in the rest of the place you are safe with your family. Food was decent to good although in some cases slightly pricey; flights and beer also seems slightly on the high side compared to other places but if downtown its worth the visit for sure. And they always have a couple interesting things on tap - lucky enough the second time visiting that they had tapped a firkin of the Abyss for all stouts day!

It was packed to the rafters when I initially passed by so came back another time...yep this place gets busy, no doubt. Grabbed a spot at the bar and sampled my way through a few beers. Some lovely fresh hop beers in the mix, being that time of year in the beer calender. I didnít pay too much attention to the surrounding space but itís clear Deschutes has dropped some serious coin here. Food was well overpriced for what youíre getting. Still, itís worth a visit to at least get a few beers in.

This was a very commercial and sterile looking brewery location for this very large brewery.Iím not surprised with how clean and well organized this place was but it felt too nice. Tap list was great and there were some bottles to enjoy on-site. I didnít have any of the food but I felt it was pretty expensive. I would probably only come back to try new beers that are out.
