The food is decent, it does the job of soaking up the booze. The beer selection is mostly theirs and they have all the needed genres. The beer is mostly okay, nothing to rave about, but always something to drink. Service is usually passable but if they are remotely busy the service quickly goes downhill, I have waited 30 minutes for my waitress to come out of hiding only to go to the bar to get a drink and be told off for not waiting for my waitress. When we’re in this part of town we usually end up here though as it’s one of the best options.
Feels like a run down old timers pub, but it has its charm. Lots of beers on tap. You can order a flight of 9 for $12. Happy hour menu is cheap and a good deal, but the food was pretty uninspired - same with the beer, clean enough, but uninspired. Near John’s Marketplace, so might be worth visiting if you are desperate for ticks and have exhausted other places (how could that happen in PDX?). I’d give it a miss but I enjoyed my visit.
Visited on 11th November 2014. Large place with a bit of a dated look. A mix of tables and booth seating. As it had just opened it was quiet. 15 beers available and tasters available for them all. Sort of a lower end quality in PDX as we’d been and rated all of the better venues. Service and prices decent enough. Certainly better places again.
OMP yeah you know me. LOLOLOLOLOLOL. I digress. Came here just as happy hour started which for me on the east side was just a few wee hours before bed time. It was near my hotel so i was all like "Why the Fuck not?" Had two beers which were mediocre of maybe a slight notch above. Served by beer maids that had tats (yes tats) that would make an Aborigines kiwi blush. what evs. Happy hour food was cheap and tasty. overall a decent place for a few brews, food, scenery, chats.
Visited on Tuesday 11/11/14 just after opening at 11.20am.
Large facility with decor typical of a 90’s brewpub, plain floor, wooden chairs and tables, some booth seating. Heritage table top Pacman to the right of the door as you enter. The place was dead but we were in and out before the lunch hour. Service prompt and friendly.
Tasters available for all beers. Beers were pretty blah, lowest average ratings for any brewpub I visited on this trip at 2.87. Highlight was the Black IPA which hit a 3.4. We didn’t eat.
Overall not a place to go to unless you are after ticks (15 in total). We only hit here as it was near to where I was staying and being my 3rd visit to PDX started to touch on ’best of the rest’ venues having already taken on all the higher ranked places.
One of those places that has been around forever. Wife and I stopped here after doing some roof work (woo!), and the place was decently busy. It’s got a distinct sports pub vibe mixed in with the old market signs. The waitstaff, well, I got a distinct Hooters impression. Not as overtly sexual, I suppose, but, well, I probably just sold you with one sentence. We had brunch, and the food was good. Not special, but not bad. Plenty of beer, but it’s mostly average. Prices are decent for the PDX area, though I do wish the 8 oz glasses were a little cheaper. Still, a pretty nice stop.
The beer isn’t really much to speak of here, but I can honestly say that I’ve never had anything but a great time going here with friends. The shuffleboard is key of course, the food is decent and the staff is very attentive. A fun place to have a big group outing.
I truly like this place as one of the few things that makes the southwest livable around Multnomah Village. The food is damn good, especially for vegetarians. They brew their own and all of it is always on tap.
