Plain room full of squalling kids on the left as you walk in, which was awesome because we had a squalling kid too. No, it does not offend me to be sequestered from the adults, but bring me a stout, young lady. I donít know, the chocolate one. And some fries for the whippersnapper. Bring us some crayons too while youíre at it. And some shellfish of some kind. Ah yes. Life could be worse.

(Visited 02/2010): Rogueís Public House in Newport is located right along the bay on Bay Blvd. Parking on the street was not an option on our visit as the whole place was torn up. We did park farther down at Ripleyís with no problems.
There is a bed and breakfast above and a "museum" next door which turned out to be more restaurant seating. Inside the bar area is in the rear with table seating everywhere else. There is a small gift shop right in the entrance and there are bottles stocked all over. The requisite surfboard is present, and a lot of the decor includes awards received by the brewery, as well as a good collection of tap handles.
The beer selection is pretty good. Many brews from Rogue, Eugene City and Issaquah are available. In addition there were some XS, Chatoe and Tracktown beers too. The beers are listed on a white board in the seating area. There are over 25 total and they offer a 4-beer sampler paddle where you write which beers you want on a piece of paper, costing $5.75. The beers were generally good, although the John John was noticeably less flavorful than it was in Portland just a day or 2 before, to the point where I suspected it was the Amber. The bartender verified it was the John John, so maybe that keg simply lacked something.
Service was decent on a weekend afternoon. The server wasnít overly knowledgeable about beer but was reasonably prompt and friendly.
Our pub food was pretty good. We went with old fashioned hot dogs and sandwiches.
Overall I liked the Brewery better but this place is worth a stop, especially on a nice day and the sea lions are out.

Went there on my Oregon trip. Great place in a great town. Good selection of really good beer. Went there two nights in a row, to taste different types of beer.

Fairly boring though inoffensive place. The food was not very good and the service was so-so. Come for beer but eat dinner somewhere else. My server was completely ignorant about beer, and there were no descriptions of the beers anywhere to be found, so research your lesser-known Rogue beers before you go. Incredibly unfocused as a beer bar.

Kind fo plain looking inside- really no character. Service can be good, but the place, especially the bar, fills up very quickly with locals who can be very friendly, itís just a bit much the first time one goes in. Great selection of all Rogue beers and some thought out guest taps. Overall score get extra points for the apartments upstairs- rent one of these if you are in town. No better place to stay in town. These are not hotel rooms, but really small apartments stumbling distance from the bar.

Good selection of Rogue beer. Pub food was standard fare. Very family friendly. A little on the expensive side for brewery beer and food. This was the second visit to this location. It gets very crowded in the summer season so get there early.

In a rundown old bar. The selection of Rogue beers was fairly extensive. The food was OK, just OK. The service was not that great, as the wait for a half empty place was not really acceptable.

I have stopped in this place a couple of times. Not only do they have a great selection of the Rogue brews. They also have a few guest brews on all the time. The last time I was in on the night before we went out deep sea fishing. WOW that was not a good idea. Talk about sea sick. Next time I think i will stop in after the fishing trip.

Cool place, but service was lousy. Lots of cool pictures from the fire.
