After reviewing others' reviews, we were disappointed. We went for dinner and the menu was very small. The place was empty at 6 on a Friday night which is not a good sign. We ordered Buffalo wings that were just average and nachos that had a mystery sauce on it. There was only one choice of an IPA beer which... More

We live in Eugene and like to travel down to the Axe and Fiddle sometimes for dinner and to hear music. It would be a good place to stop if you’re driving I-5 and want to eat somewhere that is authentic and unpretentious with that “Unique Oregon” feeling. The burgers and beer are delicious, and at night don’t be shy... More

Food and drinks were good and well priced.There is an entrance in the back portion of the restaurant to the vintage/used bookstore next door. Loved the atmosphere, an eclectic crowd of hippies and "hipsters". We were entertained by a woman selling chanterelle mushrooms from a large basket and a solo singer from Colorado.

Loved the people and atmosphere of this place, which is in the middle of historic downtown Cottage Grove; charming especially late in the evening with reasonable priced drinks.

The Axe and Fiddle is a gem of a place. They have great artisits coming into play many nights a week, the atmosphere is cozy, there's a great sense of community, the food is delicious and the staff is always friendly. There's a second-hand bookstore connected to the bar, great to go have a peek around in while you wait... More
