Nothing to special, just good Pub food, great service and the great array of McMenamin's brews . Try the Ruben.

We are huge fans of McMenamin's.. we have stayed at a number of their hotels. So when we walked by this pub we had to stop in. Our waiter, Luke, should really find another job... maybe something not in customer service. He told us that to get his attention we should stick the menu off the end of our table.... More

Went here for nearly lunch with wife was very slow at this time beer was pretty good actually and food was better than I expected only minor gripe made an order and asked for an item off my sandwich and waitress did not use pen and paper and messed it up, which is bothersome. Great peppercorn ranch here and the... More

We had a great meal here during our recent visit to Portland. We loved the outdoor booth seating, it made it a lot nicer with the kids. The food was top notch and the service was great as well. We had a long drive post lunch so didn't get to sample the nice selection of beer, but we will be... More

9 August party of 5 7:15 PM check no 0378879 Once upon a time some of the funky McMenamin's outlets in PDX had some well presented sandwiches to go with the good beers. Back in maybe 1980 when only the Hillsdale outlet formed the empire. BUt McMenamins has abandoned any concept of edible, much less good food. The decor is... More

Very comfortable and super friendly service. The food was similar to the other mcmenamins African peanut soup was very good. Nice music played. Not too loud for conversation. Beer cold and tasty.

In general, I am not a fan of the McMenamins pubs/ restaurants. Their beer is fine, but the food and service is mediocre at best. Having said that, the Barley Mill was an unexpected and pleasant surprise! Located in southeast Portland, this cozy pub has a dizzying array of Grateful Dead memorabilia, which was fun for my husband and brother-in-law... More

Good hard Apple cider and great admin Norman here. I've been here a couple times and always get good customer service even when it's packed. This is the first restaurant in the chain and is still rocking it as good as the rest. There's also some awesome pinball machines.

Visiting Portland for Thanksgiving and stopped by here for a late dinner. Great casual atmosphere, great music (Grateful Dead fans) and great food and drinks. The Wilbur’s Jumbo Deluxe and Reuben Kincaid sandwiches were big hits. Had a great waitress who recommended the tater tots! If we had been in Portland longer, we would have certainly visited this pub again!
