“So many beers but no character at all. This place has nothing to do with a charming craft brewery. It is a beer factory with too much merchandising around. Disappointing.“

“Must stop while in Newport. Both times I have been here it has been very relaxed and decent prices. They have a good selection of bottles and cans. They are becoming a brewery too with about half of the taps being their own.“

“Visited here on Memorial Day weekend. Pretty busy, as one might expect. It’s definitely a public house in Newport - there’s not a lot of character and, in fact, it seems rather old and worn. Unfortunately, not in the charming antique kind of way. Service was pretty good, but I was very disappointed by the lack of tasters on this particular weekend, and the beers that I tried were merely OK. Prices suck. Ultimately, this was kind of a tick for me.“

“I went to the Rogue Public House in beautiful Newport, OR about six years ago while driving the PCH with my wife. We actually stayed at the B&B upstairs, which was pretty incredible. Nice big place that has two bombers in your fridge when you arrive. Overall, was a big fan of this place, great selection of Rogue beers on tap, good food, comfy atmosphere, would definitely recommend this place...especially anyone interested in crashing there for the night.“

South Beach Fish Market (Grocery Store)
3640 US 101
“An odd place with a seafood shack, a fish monger and convenience store all connected. Beer selection is OK with lots of locals, but nothing you won’t find at any reasonable shop. Unless you need some regular shelf beer, you aren’t missing much.“

“Wednesday night around 9 o’clock and it felt like a kindergarten. Kids running around and screaming. The beers were tasty and there were enough to choose from. Not as many as in Rogue Portland though. Good selection of bombers of course but drinking a bomber all by myself in a brewpub is not something I prefer. Service was friendly and prompt although my clam chowder was served warm not hot but it seems that it’s their style. Cosy and warm place... a bit less kids and voilà! I wish I knew about the B&B rooms upstairs.“

JC Market Thriftway (Grocery Store)
107 N COAST HWY
“I have shopped JC for 14 years now ,every time I am at the Coast. They have the best bottled selection in Newport. THey have a large walk in cooler with many PNW beers..some which I cant get in Salem. Prices are a little high ( for Oregon) but I always like it here. The people are very nice, and it beats an extra trip to Freddys to buy camping food.“

“I’ve been here a few times over the last 11 years. It went from a really great experience in 2003 to a big disappointment a few years later to a little better this last time a couple days ago. The beers have always been great. The service this last time was just really slow considering how many people were not in the bar and restaurant. The clam chowder came out luke-warm. I don’t understand how difficult it could be to serve chowder hot. Besides that the food is better than average but not good enough to justify the price premium.“

“Quite a big bar that is for the locals. Small but good tap list, eager to offer samples. Nice bar and great local pub for the area. I didn’t eat but did get to try the new local brewery which is only at this bar and on tap.“

“Quite a unique and unusual brewpub. The signage is a bit dubious as to where to go to actually get in there - you have to walk through several doors, the actual brewery, and then up a flight of stairs to get to the pub / restaurant. Excellent extensive selection of Rogue beers, including some of their rarer and one-off ones. Prices are very reasonable and the service was very good. Definitely worth a stop when passing through Newport, even if you’re not a big fan of Rogue.“

“Very bizarre brewpub right in the actual Newport harbor under the massive bridge. Strange parking lot is intermixed with their actual operational brewery so get ready to dance with some semi-trucks. A few oddly pointing signs sent us driving around the area and into the Rogue Distillery house. Surely the kitchen and brewpub are not actually inside the brewery warehouse?? Well, surprise, they are. You walk through the giant red cylinder and follow some makeshift signs to a hidden kitchen and restaurant that has been jerry-rigged into the side of the brewery. Staff was nice, tap list was all Rogue beers with many things you can easily find in bottles. Only a few beers on tap were brewpub only types if any. Food was subpar- very disappointing given how good the menu looked. Kobe beef burger was overcooked and unseasoned. I hope it wasn’t real Kobe beef or I would cry in my sleep. Generic fries and pickles served with everything. Pretty lackluster overall. Food quality was similar to beer quality with a lot of letdowns. One or two of the golden IPAs were actually pretty solid. Overall, I’d scroll past from now on.“

“I like the Public House in Newport. The decor is definitely Rogue brewpub. You can get a decent selection of to go bottles and shirts, ect... Food is really good and service is great! Close proximity to Old Town location like Ripleys & the Aquarium. Afterwards, head accross the bridge to Brewers On The Bay to see the actual brewery!“

“Brewers On the Bay has been one of my all-time favorite brewery establishments to attend for quite some time. You walk through a zig-zag of fermenters on your way to the gift shop where you can purchase beer & swag to go. Upstairs is the bar/restuarant, and in my opinion, the best food of any Rogue establishment. Upstairs, you overlook the harbor and marina where people are seen crabbing. It’s all-around a GREAT place! I really love it!!“

South Beach Fish Market (Grocery Store)
3640 US 101
“Operated as a convenience store on one side with a fish market/restaurant on the other. Beer selection is vast, with about 40-50 different breweries represented and nearly all bottles and cans in coolers. Everything is available as a single. A better selection than other groceries in Newport, though not as expansive as Bier One, but much easier to get in and out of given the parking situation. The fish stand is fantastic and has a lot of clams, oysters, shrimp and crab to eat on premises or take to-go. They will also boil your crabs for a flat fee of $5, and they ship seafood on dry ice overnight via FedEx. Very friendly local folks running the place. Cold beer, good people and fresh seafood. What’s not to like?“

“This bar is in the main brewery and it is located down a winding path thru that brewery which makes getting there half the fun. The food and atmosphere are great. What really sets this apart besides being right in the brewery is that the selection of Rogue beers is so large...many of which are limited releases or seasonals that at times you can only get at this location. Definitely woth a special trip.“

“Stopped in on Saturday of the Wine and Seafood Festival. A crowded mad-house, but the staff handled it just fine. Friendly and attentive service, as it has always been every time I visit. 20 something taps, usually with a new brew for me to try. The bar is comfortable but nothing special. Extra seating is at a long half bar behind it. Over all a nice place to stop in at made even better by the people who work there.“

“Nice location located in Newport looking over the Bay. Amazing selection of Rogue beers on tap including many that are not available for distribution. Host/Hostess were a little elitest but once you were seated the place felt very homey. Our server was very knowledgable about the beers and friendly all the way around. We had a few sandwiches which were shared and 2.5 samples each which allowed us to try 10 beers. My favorite by far was the dry hopped mogul madness. Bombers in the gift shop were priced higher than I can get them here on the east coast, but hey they are trying to get some tourist dollars from people visiting the coast. Very nice brewery with John giving tours when we were there.“

“Visited here in August ’12. A must stop if visiting the Oregon coast. Located on top of the brewery with an excellent view out the window at a harbor full of fishing and sailing boats. Have at least 30 different selections on tap with a few guest taps as well - all are available as samplers. They provide you with a free tasting of the beer of the day. Menu has a lot of local seafood - I had a salmon sandwich which was pretty good. Service was just a tad slow, but friendly nonetheless. Gift shop below the brewpub with plenty of Rogue merchandise and plenty of bombers. The walk through the tanks on the way to the brewpub with the aroma of wort making you thirsty for some some beer.“

“July 2010. Ate in the restaurant, shared some samplers. Ambiance was beautiful, overlooked the bay. The food (burgers and sandwiches) was decent but didn’t stand out. Beers were served cold and filled to the top. I was surprised to see that they still had a winter seasonal (Yellow Snow) on in July, which made me question freshness. However, that didn’t come through in the flavor. Wanted to buy some merchandise but the wait was just too long. Will stop out again on my next trip.“

“A small place in Newport, OR. 10 + taps and two coolers of bottles. The night I was there they had a couple of hard to find beers on tap. Plenty of seating in the main area and a large game room area to the side. Game room included pool tables, fooseball and darts. The game room got so loud that it was impossible to carry on a conservation. Overall good beer in an OK place.“

“Really had great service yesterday, from te hostess & wiatress both. Food very tasty & fairly price. Ruben is excellent, as is the cheese soup and fries. all out of fish & chips at the time. Have about 20 routes on tap covering the whole reange of styles, & rogue brews fine beer. my only caveat is why do the beers cost more here, at their home, than at any other pub ?“

“Huge selection of Rogue beers with a handful of them that I can’t get back home. Walking in, I was greeted with that awesome brewery hop and grain smell I really haven’t experienced in awhile. The service was above and beyond great. Walking into the pub part after buying a shirt and a bottle of Voodoo Bacon Maple in the gift shop I was immediately presented with a complimentary sample of Dad’s Little Helper. I ordered a sampler tray and received two more free samples before I left.“

“Big warehouse of a place off of the 101. Entrance was pretty well hidden and although there was plety of signage it was still pretty unclear where you were supposed to go. Once you navigated the maze there was a very small gift shop which also served as the waiting area to get upstairs to the bar/restaurant. There was an average 25-45 minute wait depending on the size of the party and all of those people were in the gift shop. Terrible layout. I kept having to sneak in-between parties of people to look at the selection of beer. Most of which seemed like it was available in abundance at just about any local grocery store. Maybe worth going just to say "I’ve been to Rogue" but pretty low on the rankings of brewery experiences.“

“Came with the family after touring the bayfront for a little lunch. There was a lego table for the kiddos which kept them entertained and well behaved. My wife & I actually had a meal just the two of us. The main dining area is attached to a sports bar type room so I could peak in and see how the Ducks were doing. A very extensive beer list and we got a sample of the Crab Porter in honor of Newport’s seafood festival. Food is above average pub fare. The only complaint was that they were out of growlers.“

“Huge production brewery and restaurant right on the bay. You make your way through the brewery and into a retail area and then on to the restaurant. Everything is kind of dirty and dingy but I think that is the look they are going for. The service getting seated sucked but once we got a table the service got a lot better, we got free samples and prompt service. Selection is large but all the typical Rogue offerings, I think there was one beer we couldn’t get in Alaska at any liquor store. Food was decent and the prices were ok. If your in Newport I guess this place is worth stopping by but kind of the same old boring beer IMO.“

“The brief year I lived in newport was spent mostly drinking here. I miss this place so much! Huge selection of beers on tap, lots of locals and lots of attitude. Ice in the urinals! Smoking indoors was still permitted when i was there which was hip... being from california and a smoker i dug it. I even got a free half yard and t-shirt for my birthday! what a great great place i hope to return to someday!“

“Long wait and iffy service on the restaurant side. Food was seriously decent though, if simple and overpriced. The beers, you know ’em. Here I began coming around to the idea that I’m a stout man. When I want to be. In Newport, I wanted to be. Next day we went crabbing on the pier. I snuck away to try a few more at the bar. Funny people there,“

“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 don’t know, the chocolate one. And some fries for the whippersnapper. Bring us some crayons too while you’re at it. And some shellfish of some kind. Ah yes. Life could be worse.“

“Looking back, this was one of my favorite spots we visited in all of Oregon. Second only to Brewers Union, I think. It’s part homebrew shop, part bottle shop, part beer bar. I mean, that’s enough for me right there. Drop your cares, have a glass of beer, and geek out among the like-minded. Decent selection with a couple that were new to us. Growlers to take away to our beachside retreat. Only knock was that my son wasn’t allowed in... Oregon laws are weird that way.“

“(Visited 02/2010): Rogue’s 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 Ripley’s 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 wasn’t 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.“

“(Visited 02/2010): Full disclosure: This is the kind of place you get increasingly giddy about as you get closer and closer. Situated across the bridge from the Public House, the Brewery and tap room is on OSU drive right off the 101 near the Marine Science Center. They have a large parking lot out front. Rogue trucks, a giant warehouse and silo that you walk through add to the anticipation, then you get a self-guided tour of the brewery of sorts as you make your way to the gift shop and bar. As I mentioned, the beer-giddy level just keeps going up. The tap room is upstairs from the gift shop and is cozy (and very warm) and offers a view down into the brewery. There are boards on either end listing the beers that are available. One interesting piece of decor above the bar was artwork done on the backs of coasters that were tacked to the underside. The beer list is pretty impressive, with around 50 taps. A paddle with 4 beer samples is available and is ordered by filling out a piece of paper and costs $5.75. The beers include the XS line, Chatoe, John John, Issaquah, Track Town, Mogul madness etc etc. All of the beers we tried were good. The brewery is stocked with a ton of bottles too, including the brand new Double Mocha Porter which I was happy to take home. Service was pretty good considering the place was packed. The bartender found time to chat about the beers and the surrounding area. A daily (I think) guided tour is available at 3PM. We did not try any food on this visit. Overall a trip to the Rogue Brewery should be near the top of any beer lover’s visit to Portland or the Oregon coast.“

“On a west coast trip, this was my most disappointing stop. I LOVE Rogue brews and seek them out whenever I can, being an east coaster, that isn’t as often as I would have wanted. Detoured out of my way, my expectations here set too high. Clearly I was there on a bad service day. We were at the table for over 30 minutes before I got my first beer. The food came out at one hour and cold, and I wasn’t able to order a second beer. After "lunch", we retired to the bar on the other side and fared a bit better, but not much. I so very much wanted to love this location. I will just stick to the beers though.“

“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, it’s 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.“

“Ambience gets high marks for having to walk through a working brewery to get to the pub, dodging forklifts along the way. Service can be good and can be indifferent. Nearly any Rogue beer on tap plus special releases and a few guest taps. Food is above average for a pub.“
