Quiet house turned brewpub is easy to find from the interstate. Parking is crowded, even during a slow part of the day. We did get a great table by the window with an amazing view of town. Food was good, but pricey. Service was better than average. Only had one beer, but it was quite good. They do offer a sampler at a reasonable price.

Nice building with a great view, good selection of decent beers. Food selection was good as was the quality. I was there in winter on a weekday afternoon. Lots of stairs, hard to climb, hard to get back down after several beers. The dark wheat was very good
Took my wife and son (2 yrs) in for Sunday lunch. They were ready for a little person with a high chair and some crackers right off the bat. We had the salmon burger, clam chowder and the child’s fish and chips. The food was good but the salmon burger was pricey at $12 for lunch. They offered about nine of their own beers with a descent variety within them. My wife sampled at least four of their beers (4 oz each) and all were good. I had 12 oz of Sly’s Demise and MacStallion Scotch Ale. Both were good too. The view from their dining area of the Columbia River and downtown Hood River is tough to beat. Hood River offers more than a few good breweries and all are worth a stop.
Nice pub up on the hill with a view of the river. The food was very good, I had a small pizza that was excellent. They had 6 beers on tap or so, all good to very good quality, only one beer was a bit disapointing. Highly recommended place.
Great atmosphere overlooking the city of Hood River at night when it is all lit up. Nice sized sampler, did not try the food, but the menu was good looking and somewhat pricey with alot of steaks and seafood. Service however was horrible. My father and I sat there waiting to be served forever before someone payed attention to us, and even at that point they could not tell us about the beers without looking up at the board they were all posted on to tell us what styles they had on.
Ok, first things first.....get ready for some stairs! Behind the street level windows you will find the brewery. Go up the first set of stairs to find a couple of nice pool tables and the bathrooms. Go up another, inside set of stairs to find the bar/restaurant. The bar is fairly small as is the dining area, both with views of the river. Several outside patios/decks for fair weather seating. Food is somewhat overpriced, but for the area, it’s probably no TOO bad. Service was good, as was the food. Beers were a bit above average, with the stout being particlularly good.
OK place. Nice view. Our server was friendly but seemed to have too many tables. Food was just OK, somewhat underwhelming. I got the beer sampler. A few were below average and bland; the others were just average. Most of them lacked depth, and I lost interest after just one or two sips. Guess I expected more. We didn’t end up staying for additional pints.
A nice environment with some Buddhist flags, Great scenery to look out over the Gorge and watch the wind surfers. There were SEVEN (7) beers on tap including 3 that were not listed on Ratebeer. There is a hike up to multiple levels, a bit of an adventure into this good ol’ house/lodge feel. The owner is very nice and walked around giving wine samples out.
heard lots of great stuff about this place from lots of people. Went in, wasn’t too big on the aesthetic of the place, kind of bare. But service was great, had a couple of their own brews that were really tasty, and the happy hour was awesome. Four of us ate and drank and our bill was $30 dollars!!!!
Had an enjoyable experience here. I’ve been here several times and the service is always hit or miss. They always have on a few standards and some rock solid seasonals, which is the draw for me. Everyday beers are basic, but brewed true to style. First of all you have to really want to try the beers here, because you will get your exercise doing it, specfically up 3 1/2 flights of stairs. The views of downtown and the river are spectacular especially in the fading light heading into night when the town lights up. It’s worth it!
