A super nice brewpub. Lots of old wood and carvings, plenty of space to stretch out, and very new. The food was really tasty, and the beer selection was WAY bigger than I expected. I was impressed to say the least. Kind of upscale trendy for a few of my friends, but surprisingly it didnít bother me too much.

I love Deschutes beer & was very happy when they opened a place in Portland. But I have to say I am not a huge fan of their public house. Service isnít always great and the atmosphere just seems so over the top - like what some company might build in NYC or Chicago as a "northwest" theme restaurant. The beer is outstanding but I have been disappointed a few times when they donít have some of their current seasonals on. The early closing time is also strange (I think Henryís 12th Street suffers from the same thing). Overall a great place to get tremendous beer, just not a great place to drink it.

The brewery tour was top notch; Everything was laid out well and you really got a good sight of a fantastic working brewery. Guides were great. Free samples of BBXXI, Red Chair and some of the standards. Nice gift shop. The Public House was a great place for dinner - good food, good service, and an enormous selection of small-batch experiments. Great atmosphere and located right in the heart of historic Bend. Each is a must-see.

I greatly enjoyed my visit at Deschutes. Their enormous and spacey restaurant is located in the old brewery district in what is now a beautifully restored (awesome windows) industrial loft with very high ceilings. It was a bit disappointing to fall upon such early closing times, but we later came for lunch and the place was pretty much packed. The food was excellent, well-thought, tasty, in perfect size and more than a few interesting choices featured in the menu. The beer selection is nothing short of stunning. Youíre at Deschutes and itís one of the most trustworthy brewery around. Everything they do is good, yet theyíre not afraid of venturing into national brewing trends and doing it much better than most. So you have at least 15 beers on tap, 2 on cask and many of them youíve never heard of. The amped-up black butte was worthy of its smaller brother, the pils was one of the best Iíve had in the last few months. The prices remain democratic. Perhaps not the friendliest place, itís just too big, but a place Iíd dine in frequently given the chance.

I went here twice while visiting Portland twice. It has that standard restaurant-oriented brewpub feel, but the beer far surpasses any Rock Bottom Iíve tried. Still this is a weaker spot in Portland. This would be the shining pride of any normal town, but Portlandís awesomeness subsides some of theirs. They have a lot of beers, but only about half are worth anything. This is just another place you have to check out in Portland.

Iíve always had great service and great food here. Their beers are pretty good, the flagships are what they are, but the small batch ones are either spectacular or spectacularly bad. All of them are more interesting than Green Lakes organic ale.

Itís nice to finally have a Deschutes brewpub in Portland, so that itís a little bit easier to get all their tap only releases since I donít really have much occasion to go to Bend. As has been pointed out previously, itís very evident that a lot of time and money went into the atmosphere of this pub, the building itself is beautiful and actually has a fairly cozy feel relative to its size. The vast variety of tap only selections is really nice, with some stuff I sampled here including Super Jubel, Maple Gold, Crystal Peak Porter and the always delicious Hop Henge. Sadly, the service is fairly subpar, it took quite some time to get our beers when I was in there, and there was a mixup on one of the orders. This could very well be due to how busy it was on a sunday afternoon though, so Iíll cut them a little slack.

The Portland Deschutes Pub is beautiful, they spent a lot of money on this place and so far have been rewarded with a wait every night Iíve tried to go. The main downside here is parking, itís the Pearl and as such you must park at least 32 miles away from your destination, despite that itís a great place. They have all the usuals on tap and usually something interesting as well, last time I was in they had the new 2009 release of Mirror Mirror and a 2005 release, it was fun to compare the two. The service is, well, hard to rate. Sometimes I get a great waiter that is attentive and friendly, other times they are surly and donít actually wait on you. Last time I was in the bar I waited 25 minutes for the waiter to come back to me after I told him I wanted something, he never showed so I paid my tab and left. I was going to buy several bottles and order a keg, oh well.

Went there the night before Thanksgiving. That place was hopping. Nonetheless we got seated fairly quickly and had good service. Food was good, and the beer selection was very interesting. May pub/draft only brews in a wide variety of styles. Great place.

Actually I was pretty surprised. It was this family oriented bussiness- and at first I thought - yikes- but it turned out to be really nice. I liked the food- the beer was great- the service was amazing. Cool!
