Great place to grab a drink and a bite. I stopped in during happy hour. They have deals on food and drink until 6 p.m. Fast friendly service, great craft beer selection.

Dropped in to get a quick bite to eat, loved that the food has nice added twists on regular bar food. Had fish and chips made from salmon - yummy! Daughter's burger had fresh (not jarred) jalapeños.

Friendly people, good food, fun atmosphere, very close to the University residence halls and, most importantly, great beer selection.

Atmosphere was fun-- it's densely decorated with University of Oregon and Eugene memorabilia. The food is definitely better than pub food, and definitely below fine dining. What we ate was fairly priced, though, so I'll be eating there again.

Wasn't there before any games, but felt like it would be a good place to try out for that. Good luck.
