So, first of all, if you want to find this location via Google Maps I suggest you enter "McMenamins Mall 205". I'm not sure where the "205 Place" came in as this isn't even the official name on the McMenamins website. That out of the way...the atmosphere here is not amazing. Dark, but not in a cozy, romantic, or hip... More

Stopped in here for dinner and although they seemed fairly busy we were seated very quickly. Nice greeting at the door and over-all friendly atmosphere. McMenamin's pubs follow a somewhat avant-garde decorating format but each pub offers variations on this theme as well as basic bar type food and beer that are individually suited to each location. We settled in... More

After enjoying the one in Portland on 23rd, this branch paled in comparison. We stood waiting for the host for a long time while he struggled with the cash register. The food and beer was average, but the waiter never came back to give us the check. Finally he walked in reeking of smoke and took it. They looked understaffed,... More

I only gave it a 3 because of the decor, atmosphere and service. We had been here once back in April, then 2 times this trip. Sometimes the service is good (with Hillary) and sometimes it is slow (like our last visit). I would up the rating to a 4 if the service was consistently good. But we keep coming... More

Great place with good beer and great food. Only issue was it got a little busy and we were left outside for a while before staff got back to us. I would go back though

This location is like the old school version of all McMenamins...slow,slow and beyond slow. I don't understand and never did understand why the service is always so slow. Some locations have changed their ways and are much better but this one is beyond bad. Sorry 205 place, but get with it!!!

We had family in from Alaska and decided to have a gathering. Many culinary needs such as lactose intolerance, vegan, vegetarian, you get the drift. We had nine people and, though they don't do reservations and were busy, we were seated in minutes. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. He had many tables but we never felt ignored. All could... More

We're doing the McMenamins passport, and hit up this place last night. We LOVED it! We really liked the atmosphere because there was a ton of beautiful plants hanging from the ceiling. The place had about 7 tables and one bartender, named James, taking care of everyone, so he was a little busy. However, he was AMAZING. He had GREAT... More

Right off the I-205 freeway at the Washington St. Exit, McMinamins is easily accessible and a great place to get delicious food and hand-crafted ales. We like their Captain Neon Burger with blue cheese dressing and bacon accompanied by hand-cut fries and Ruby ale, made with raspberry puree! They have a nice Happy Hour menu, too.
