Their flagship locations (Edgefiled, Kennedy, Grand Lodge) are fantastic.
Many other historic locations such as the Bagdad are great.
But many of their locations such as this one are just plain boring.

Fine place. Sort of strip mall setting. Pretty big. Great service. Same old McMenamins food and beer. Not worthy of too much searching for this who are tight on time in Oregon. But a good place overall to eat and drink pretty well and cheaply.

Just moved into the area and gave this place a try. Went on Easter Sunday, so there weren’t too many people there. I had a kolsch that was darn good and the gf had a stout the was pretty good as well. We both had burgers that were very good. The service was attentive and quick. I would go back again.

Strip mall pub that looks to have been styled with McM’s tradition but cannot escape the false ceiling flat wall atmosphere any better than a Denny’s might at the same location. Food was uninteresting. Prices were reasonable.

I took my Mom here for her birthday lunch. She likes McM’s brewpubs. Looks like any ordinary tavern in an older strip mall. The place was not too busy so service was pretty good. The food took a long time to arrive for such an easy order. Three fish and chips and a soup and sandwich. The batter in the F&C was still gooey next to the fish which leads me to believe it was frozen not fresh. The fish was tasty enough and came with average fries and a dab of coleslaw. The tarter sauce was good and plentiful. The tab for the four of us including 15% tip was $50. Not bad and it included two short beers and a coffee. Good enough for lunch or a couple of beers but not a place I’m dying to revisit. Also it was as dirty as every McM’s I’ve eaten at. Not filthy mind you but grubby.

Been here a few times this past weekend it was a good time to see old friends. The beer was just as always. Loved the food and the Ruby and Terminator stout was great. Located in a strip mall area so it is not the feel of the old McMenamins you usually get. Nice is beer and so is the food. The service is the same crappy Portland hippie hates to be there rather be playing hackey sack and dreaming of the days of Bob Marley. Where do they find these people? Maybe a few more tattoos and piercing then they want to work and earn tips.
