This place gets pretty packed sometimes, let me tell you. Much as you would expect for a Portland family friendly pub. They do kill it with the play area for the kids though. Massive portions of tasty pub grub.
Visited (again) on Halloween. Surprisingly not busy given how rainy it was, but Iíll take it.
Itís an angular space with the family friendly tables on the right side and the bar on the left. Thereís parking in back with a door leading through to the front where one has to check in to get seated.
Food is typical Laurelwood - which means that itís plenty good and thus better than most pub fare.
I will say, however, that the tap list here isnít much different than the SE PDX location, and maybe itís just a bad memory, but I feel like there used to be more variety here. Itís quite possible that theyíve standardized given their new brewing arrangements.
Itís Laurelwood. Solid and worthy, but I prefer HUB for family dining.
First stop of the trip, mainly cause I drove right past it and I was hungry. Definitely real money in this operation. Nice restaurant brewpub feel, polished menu. Brewing equipment on display from the outside as you walk up. Service was solid. Flights consist of the regular lineup plus your choice of two of the specials. Food was good and prices were reasonable. I thought all of the beers on the sampler were at least decent, some were better than that. They have a small parking lot, and street parking is also possible.
Yes, abother place rake. This was from yesterday afternoon, pre flight. Place has pretty limited parking in the lot, best bet is on street. Decent sized place, oak wall. The smell of the hops in the boil kettle was amazing. Had six regular taps and about another 10 rotating. Service was quick and friendly.
Finally hit this place up. Fairly open, warm and inviting place. A nice selection of many seasonal and a cask ale. The service was good mostly, minor annoying stuff. Of course, good beer. Didnít eat here. Had 4 beers I havenít had, so good with me!
Drove out here from downtown at the advice of the hotel concierge. Laid-back neighborhood sort of place. Very friendly service. Their beers are above average and the food was delicious and affordable. Kids enjoyed it too.
Visited on Saturday 25/05/13 around noon.
Medium sized rectangular room with the bar to the right. Upstairs level and patio out the back.
The place was pretty quiet, perhaps 35% full, largely comprised of brunchers.
10 beers on tap, all from their own stable, including one cask line which was on good form! Most of their beers were decent brews, particularly the hoppier numbers.
The 8 beer sampler provides you with 6 regular offerings plus 2 seasonals.
Service was fine, as I said not busy, so who knows what its like when rammed ?
They also do some nice mustards made from a few of their house beers, I took one home - it was tasty!
Iíd certainly recommend stopping by Laurelwood on Sandy on a PDX beer tour, 10 rates in an hour, what more do you need !?!
Worth getting here on your Portland beery tour. The quality of the beer is very high, and quite the diverse selection on offer. Large brewpub dishing up good fare and at reasonable prices. Plenty of seating, which is good as itís very busy. One to add to the list for sure.
Nice little brewpub with 10 house beers on tap, split between year-rounds and seasonals. Pretty high quality for the most part. Prices are very reasonable. Service was a bit lackluster, but passable. Worth a stop if in the area, but not a must-hit by any means.
