i have a personal preference (nostalgic) for the original pub (or brewery) in Bend, but this place is pretty sweet. perhaps a little too poular/busy, but the service is great. the wood carvings are incredible. the beer is fantastic, and there is a huge selection of good food. even the hand dryers in the bathroom, made by Dyson, are badass. like mini jet-engines!

After stumbling over the paupers in front of this place, I found it to be really large and airy. The place was totally crowded and I had to wait about 10 minutes to find a seat at the bar. Service was a touch slow, due in part to how busy it was. I did not eat while I was there, and had a sampler platter. They had a nice selection of about 14 taps or so, with a couple beers that I had never seen before. Nevertheless, I knew this would be a quick stop after seeing how mobbed it was. I couldnít really enjoy myself at this place, and there were much better places for me to be whilst in Portland.

2010-06. Waited about 20 minutes for a table on a very busy Saturday night. Waiter was mostly friendly but had that look/air about him of not expecting much of a tip when we started by ordering samples and an appetizer to share. I compounded this by promptly knocking over my glass of water not too long after that. We werenít overly hungry so we shared the elk balls (stop laughing, very tasty) and later a marionberry cobbler (super awesome). The main menu looked pretty decent as well. Beer was generally pretty good, we went through most of the range. Atmosphere is interesting. Wood everywhere it is going for a lodge like feel, but it also has that overly polished, trying too hard feel about it that Widmer did, but it seems to work better here. I think part of it is the newness, part of it is just the nature of having a place big enough to need those vibrating pagers to tell you your table is ready. In the end I decided I liked it. Overall based on the beer, the downtown location, and the food its probably a no-brainer to visit if you are in town.

Great location in downtown Portland. Great food, great brews, decent prices. One of the better places to go in my opinion when in Portland.

Very cool carved arches in the dining room, like how open it feels, also seems really new. It felt a little more touristy and corporate blah in comparison to the Bend location. I just couldnít get into it, and while I like Deschutes beers better, Iíd recommend the Rogue House just up the road, or a bar that Iím going to have to add on here, Life of Riley.

I have generally good feelings towards this place though it doesnít exactly wow me. Slightly upscale feel in an upscale part of town. Prices are high though somewhat understandable. I prefer to grab a seat in the bar area rather than get a table. The food is quite good but definitely pricy though what do you expect. Thankfully the pub always has a handful of exclusive beers and I find their cask beers always taste really good. Overall worth hitting up.

While I love most Deschutes beers this place is kind of hit and miss for me. It has a rustic feel with an almost club-like atmosphere because of itís location in the Pearl District. That may work for some people but it puts me off a little. Especially when compared to the original brewery in Bend which is much more homey. Like I said, the beers are awesome. The food is very good but seems to be poorly made by an uncaring staff. You get the same food at the Bend restaurant and itís much better. Service can be a little slow and itís usually crowded and kind of loud. All that to say the beer and the brand are great and thatís what matters!

As a big fan of Deschutes brews, I was looking forward to hitting up their downtown Portland brewpub to sample some of their tap only brews. The building is very spacious and well-decorated inside and you can also watch the brewers at work. I came here for the beer but the food looked tasty although a bit on the pricey side. Highlights of the beer sampler platter included the German Hefe, Hop in Dark Cascadian Ale, Bee Gone Saison and Mirror Mirror Barleywine. A must-visit on any beer tour of Portland.

Stopped in for lunch and was surprised by the extensive tap list and good food. Great service and very roomy. The only downside is price... it is a bit high for the quality of food.
