Visited this place both nights we were camping near Newport. Had our Rogue Nation cards so we got drink discounts all night. Pretty busy place, a small bar which was really crowded late at night, and a large dining area consisting of two rooms. The bartender was a great guy, and welcomed us back a second night and was even up for talking beer and brewing. Drank myself silly on Old Crusty and Imperial Stout, and like every other time when visiting a Rogue establishment, I met a bunch of great people, many who were back the next night with us. Awesome place.

(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.

Casual pub...though the pub has a smoking section. Thatís retarded. All the Rogue brews, with some Issaquah and Eugene stuff as well. I like the place, but thereís not much rare beer there. The chili had stout in it and it dominated the flavour. First time Iíve struggled through a chili that wasnít from a can. Nice location along a touristy waterfront strip. Not bad, but not a mecca.

Now I have had some bad service here at times. And I have had good service. Must be hard to get great beer servers in a small town. But overall with a few trips to this place I had a great time great beers and your so close to the Ocean it is beautiful.

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.

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.

A really nice rogue pub, friendly atmosphere and a damn good selection of brews, probably about 24 rogue brews and 8 guest taps, including some la choufe. Charlie the bartender was really nice, answered all sorts of questions I had about rogue and gave me a free pint of the old fifteenth anniversary that they were taking off tap.

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.

LONG LIVE THE ROGUE NATION! This place is right in the little shopping district on the other side of the bay from the brewery. Great view of the big bridge parallel to the Ocean. Little store to buy beer in the bottle as you walk in. Amazing hospitality. Absolutly genuine people. The Public House in Newport has been one of my favorite places to stay while on vacation in Oregon. When in Newport you must stop here. Good pizza. Great Kobe burger w/ Bleu and a Santaís Private... Great taste of America!!! Plan to stay all day with the awesome locals. Charlie, Chris, Jim were all great. Thanks again, and see you all soon!!!! Once again John C. Maier is an Artisan Brewmaster of the World. Thank you John!! Prost

Alot of fun, to go and try some good beer and hang out with the locals. Not much rare beer on tap, just the usual Rogue fare, but fun and worth experiencing nonetheless.
