On a Friday night the bar was pretty full both outside and inside. We found a table next to red-lighted stage. They didn’t have as many Caldera beers available (maybe 1/2) as they have in the brewery but there were enough to choose from. The bar was full and it seemed that one guy was taking care of the whole... More

The hamburger was juicy and the fries really enjoyable. However, the best part was the very competent, attentive and courteous service by Cassandra, who found for me the appropriate beer (Hopportunity Knocks IPA), a nice table by the fireplace and a lovely lunch. We will certainly go back.

...a playlist heavy on Marley and the Dead, and huge plates of fries... It's like your college hippie friend's basement, but with much better beer! Caldera makes some of my favorite Oregon brews. This location has an excellent selection on tap and very tasty pub-type food. I love their sweet potato fries.

Lots of beers to choose from with a great menu. Good location which is right off I-5 and lots of room for enjoying your stay, whether its inside or outside, or at the bar. If you're into sours, try the Mother Pucker...

Prices were outrageous!!! Waiter gave you a choice of items with your burger but failed to tell you they were not included in the price. We ended up paying$19.00 for a burger with a side salad. Beef stew was really COLD beef soup. We indicated one burger was over cooked and is all we got was a "sorry." We were... More

We stopped in Ashland to take in a couple plays at the local theaters. As it happened, our preferred productions were sold out but the stop was hardly wasted since we came upon the Caldera Tap House. It's a fine pub up above the freeway east of town. The Tap House features a variety of delicious Happy Hour specials. During... More

We went for dinner. It was not crowded and we were seated promptly. Then we never saw a server for over 10 minutes and finally caught someone's attention. Two different entre' salads were ordered and they both were not to our taste. Both had very odd flavors; I think from the salad dressings they made onsite. We felt the prices... More

A variety of brews and a view that is incomparable in the Ashland restaurant scene. Brew house salads and burgers were our choices but there is an adequate menu variety for all tastes and dietary preference

Ashland seemed like a convenient place to stop, so we decided we might as well enjoy a good beer. There are three reasonably close to our motel, so we picked the one closest and it was also close to the nearest gas station. We didn’t think we’d get there in time for happy hour, but we hit town around 5pm,... More

On a road trip in the PNW and we stopped at the Tap House for some food and beer. Outside was dog friendly which was important to us. We tried the nachos( very fresh tasting and not your typical cover everything in cheese nachos). Those were very good. And we also had the fish tacos.. Yummy! I tried the beer... More
