This was a great place to have lunch. It's a cozy, comfort-foody bar. They have crayons and kids' menus too.

While not gf they will amend meals and have whooped up burgers on gf buns we brought in. The menu is meat heavy, but the burger combos are amazing. So many favorite dishes here, and the kids love the play room. Excellent cocktails too.

Great place, very interesting interior. Our bartender, Jen, was super nice and attentive. We had the Wheatstock Heffie and the Bruce/Lee Porter. Great swag selection too. The food looked tasty, although, we didn't have anything.

My daughter loved her teriyaki/pineapple burger and I ordered happy hour fries and the small burger. Everything was delicious! We got dessert to go...the carrot cake whoopie pie was scrumptious! And last but not least...the huckleberry microbrew...just as good as I had remembered!!!!

Much better than normal pub food. Their daily pasta is always very good and their salads and sandwiches are top notch. Service is quick and efficient. The only negative if there is one is the noise.

We've eaten here several times when passing through Pendleton. It's a casual place in an old building that has a lot of space. They have great happy hour specials, and nightly dinner specials that use creative local ingredients. Last night, I had the Pub Salad,...More

Chicken wings, fries, sweet potato fries, and several salads to choose from. They would probably wrap a sandwich or burger in lettuce if you asked!
