Nice place overlooking the Columbia and Portland. The beers are fair and the food is good provided you arenít too busy rating beers to eat it before it gets cold.

Stopped in on a rainy Saturday afternoon after looking at houses in Vancouver. This was right down the street from where I was staying. What a great area, beautiful view of the river and none of the taxes that you get across the river. The pub itself is RIGHT on the water which is cool. Of course since it was raining and cold we sat inside but it was still nice. The service was friendly and brought out some flights for us as well as a few pints. The beers were just alright but I guess thatís how it goes at a chain. The food was nice though. Iíd stop back in if staying with those friends but there are better places to have a beer just across the water.

Another great McMenamins - Love the view from the river and this place has some great food and atmosphere. Great beer this is a must stop and a great date place.

A small selection of beers when I visited, mostly just the McMenamins beers and about 5 other IPAs on the guest taps. There may have been more, but the waiter was busy running table-to-table and was on the go.
Terrible seafood (salmon) but some of the typical pub fare looked decent. The black and tan brownie was EXCELLENT.
The view is great, itís a funky little spot on the river...worth a stop if you want to relax.

Very nice venue. Ask for the specials (not on the menu). Appetizers were excellent.

Only redeeming feature is the view, and on a clear day....oh man what a view!! Aside from that, the usual achingly slow service and corner cutting on menu items by corporate idiots.

This location for McMenanins is better. Especially during the summer, if you can sit outside, you are sitting right on the river. The beer is average and the food is average

Right on the Columbia River. Nice to sit out on the patio in the summer. Same old McMenaminís food and beer. Service can be a bit sketchy sometimes.

We sat outside facing the Columbia River with the sunshade at the right angle.. sipping what I consider to be some of my favorite McMenamins fare.... awesome setting, though located in a yuppie-shopping area... but you can tune that out just by focusing on watching the river. Roll on Columbia.
