It is your better than average McMenamins with an open feel and different ambience. Be prepared to wait since it seems to always be busy during lunch and dinner, but it's worth it. It's different in a that it doesn't have that cozy feel most...More

Service not awesome but ok. Food not awesome but ok. Most McMenamins have had a noticeable down tick in the quality and taste of their food I have noticed. This location is no exception. The company as a whole should address that. The view is...More
