Visited while roadtripping through Oregon and Washington. This is located within a restaurant. I visited around 10pm one night and the place seemed pretty upscale/dressy, and I felt a little out of place considering I was expecting more of a casual brewpub. Anyways, this is where they brew the smaller batch brews for Full Sail. Their taplist had a couple of extra Full Sail beers other than the regulars, but nothing much. Service was pretty poor, the bartender was slow and not very interested in telling what beers they had on tap. The whole experience seemed weird, I would recommend going to the real Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, that was a really cool experience.
Great place by the water, if you sit outside. About 9 Full Sail beers on tap, but you can only get a 6 beer flight or pints. Wanted small pours of the BW and IS, but no. Bartender seemed cool, but if you sit outside you get the food waiter who cares squat about beer and just wants to sell you more. Worth a stop, and nice outside on a sunny day like I had, but probably better beerwise to sit at the bar.
I have to say, I was pretty disappointed with this at least from the service level.
I like the riverfront location here and it has a classic pub feel to it. On the more relaxed side with a good bar seating area. They had one beer on cask with what looked to be another 10 on tap.
My principle beef though was that the bartender pretty much ignored me on a slower night. There were only a few of us at the bar and it took him a good 15 minutes to ask me what I wanted. On top of that, he then said that it was last call. It was 10:15 and they close at 11. Doesn’t make much sense to me.
I may give full sail another chance at some point in the future. But, there’s too many other places that are better.
First of all, the address is wrong. The tasting room is in the restaurant next door. I talked my wife into going here and found a locked door at 307. This isn’t really Full Sail’s tasting room, it’s just a bar in a restaurant that has their beer. They can’t even be bothered to put a sign in the window to say that the tasting room is next door? The whole experience was really annoying. I saw another couple looking in the glass door of 307 and leaving as well.
This is a fancy little bar area with a good view of the river. A very limited food menu is available but we did not eat on this visit. There is a pretty good selection of Full Sail brews, but I’m not sure that I saw anything that wasn’t available somewhere else in the city. Ambiance is upscale businessman type.

Light Airy Open room. Firm chairs, and well airconditioned on a warm day. Service was a little slow to start with, but picked up after I was noticed. My order was available two ways, cask conditioned and nitroed. Service was friendly and curious. Food was delicious, they have a lot of McCormick and Schmick items at less than McCormick and Schmick prices. Also a bunch of items under 10 dollars. Some of their beers are exclusive to that location. Thay are fresh. There is a brewery on premises.

Located near the riverside. Reasonable food, ingredients were actually not that good, but with a good dressing the salad was fine. Decent amount of taps. Beers were ok, and they did not have any specials on. Still quite ok.
The Full Sail Pilsner Room is part of the Mccormick and Schmick’s Restaurant at the River Place. Great appearance to the bar and views of the river. Was looking forward to trying their cask selections, but only one was working. Ordered and enjoyed the beer sampler. Overall enjoyed my visit.
This is an extremely stuck up kind of after work place for high level executives. Has a couple of Full Sail brews you cannot get in the city but other than that this place is worth passing on. Great views of the river though.
