This place is boring on the inside, their beer is barely drinkable, though they had all of the important types. Who cares though as you can’t stomach it. The food was below average room temperature and just not great. The service was rude and slow. I don’t get why people love this place, all I hear is raves but I’ve never enjoyed it, especially the beer.
Interesting stop, the Racoon beers are not bad but not good. The Cascade beers are pretty awesome. Service was good, but I did not try the food. Worthy stop, but I prefer the Barrel House tap room (or the actual barrel cellar).
Came straight here after getting off a plane. Had 1 beer and a beer. Pretty ho hum for a middle of the week lunch crowd. Had the French dip which was good, served quick. Beer list was okay, if you are here for the beer I’d recommend the barrel house. My only complaint is that the food prices are little high.
This is not a bad place to stop and have a pint. It definitely seems to have a greater focus on the food than Barrel House does. (Upstairs at least). The food wasn’t anything special. but you’ve got to love Cascade beer. I wouldn’t necessarily seek this place out, but if you’re in the area, stop in.
Suburban place with a bar in the basement where I found myself, and a restaurant upstairs. Decent pub food. Three sours on tap, none of which I’d had before. Not the happening place that Cascade Barrel House is, but a perfectly reasonable place to drop in and taste a few 99th and 100th percentile brews.
Nice cozy place. I sat downstairs, so no idea about the much larger upstairs. Affordable and good food. About 10 beers on tap and bottles to go. Chatted with Art and some other folks. Knowledgeable staff. Nice place.
Not too far from my hotel in Beaverton. I was out here for work, so I figured I’d give it a try. The service was great. The bartender was friendly, and shared my name. I was expecting them to have different beers from Cascade Barrel House, but I think Cascade Barrel House has everything, plus more sours. However, this place will allow you to grab some glasses of those sours, without the, sometimes, crowded atmosphere of Cascade Barrel House. My salad and chili were decent enough. Decent vibe to the place, but nothing spectacular. Overall, it hit the spot, and had enough sours to taste to keep me pleased.
I visited the Raccoon Lodge on a recent visit to Portland. This is a really large restaurant that happens to make great beer. The service was great; friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. The selections were great featuring some exclusives that were not even available at the Belmont Street location (although there are more sours at the Belmont location). The food was good. If you have to choose between this location and Cascade Brewing I think Cascade is the way to go if you like sours. If you are looking for something with more of a restaurant-like feel and beers that are more suitable to more palates then Raccoon Lodge is your best bet. Either way I would recommend both.
Ate upstairs with a child who could have eaten free on a Monday. Come in at dinner time Sunday and you can hear live music possibly in the Den and children’s voices upstairs. Very friendly. good food. Great deserts. 11 beers on the sample tray.
Stoped in after working a jobsite in the area. We sat at the bar downstairs and had a few beers. Bar was pretty small but there were plenty tables and booths behind us. Bar tender was attentive and knowledgable of the 10 taps from the Cascade brewery. Served our pints plus gave us samples of what ever we wanted to try. We ordered cheeseburgers and pullerd pork sliders, decent but nothing exciting. It was cool to look thru the glass at the brewery operation as we drank and ate. Checked out upstairs before we left. A good sized restaurant and what looked like a nice menue. Liked the taxadermy on the walls, especially the raccoon skin over the stairs. Overall a nice place to have visited.
