We ordered lunch to go - French Dips. The menu describes it as this: "Thin sliced prime rib, with melted swiss cheese on a ciabatta roll, served with au jus." We ordered 2 without cheese and chose homemade chips as our side. You can imagine how disappointed we were to get home and discover that they had indeed included swiss... More

The Cooler is a Eugene landmark sports bar. There are plenty of TV's and it's a fun gathering spot before, during and after games at Autzen Stadium. The food is typical bar/pub food but tasty and they offer a full bar. The prices are reasonable too! I don't miss a visit to the Cooler whenever I'm in Eugene for a... More

Let's see... We have been in town for two weeks, and have visited 5 times. This should say it all. It's within walking distance from the Marriot, and takes less than 5 minutes. Tina that works in the day, is great! We all love her friendliness and efficiency. When in town for projects we always establish our watering hole/favorite place... More

I enjoyed this place. I came here with a coworker. We were staying at the hotel down the block. The inside is filled with college paraphernalia. There were tons of televisions, which all were playing some type of sport. I ordered the chicken strip basket with fries and onion rings. The chicken and onion rings were average, but the fries...

There was apparently no restaurant open in Eugene this night but the Cooler came to our rescue. This is a very funky place that purportedly is the #1 rated sports bar in Eugene. We have been Duck fans for years and had never been here. Good food, attentive staff and we met a lot of fun people in a similar... More

It is bar food but it is good bar food. The wait staff have always been friendly and provide good service. Enjoy having the multiple tv's to watch many different sporting events. This is one of our go to spots to watch a game and enjoy and good breakfast, lunch or dinner

Stopped in for dinner. Beer is cold and correctly foamy. The fries are really mini jojo's, so make sure you order them and ask for fry sauce. They're delicious! The burgers are great, and the pressed club sandwich is awesome. Open A-frame architecture and some gambling machines, a bunch of locals and a lot of fun. Staff is attentive and... More

The Cooler Restaurant & Bar has a lot to offer its diverse clientele. In other words, “we’ve got it all!!” We are open daily at 6am for breakfast, feature tasty lunch specials, have a great happy hour, and know how to party late night. Also, minors are welcome daily until 8pm, so bring the kids! The Cooler has an open floor plan, but several cozy couches and armchairs make for the perfect spot to see any number of our large, flat-screen TVs. And of course, the 15-foot big screen can be seen from virtually anywhere in the bar.
