Stopped by this fine establishment for lunch while visiting Portland with the GF. Seated quickly (wasn't too crowded) and ordered a pint of their Obsidian Stout on Nitro-tap. Fantastic, and the lady's Mirror Pond Pale wasn't bad either. Server was prompt and friendly, and quick to discuss their menu and beer selection, as well as letting me know their beer on Cask (at the time, it was the Bachelor ESB, which I also tried). Decor was very inviting, I wish I could've stuck around and seen the place lit up at night...big windows, huge wooden carvings of bear and elk, and tall ceilings.

My elk burger was huge and delicious, and the appetizer of pita chips and some kind of queso-jalapeno dip was also quite tasty. Try the house dressing if you get a side salad, it's very good. For a "pub" fare, it doesn't get much better than this. Prices were reasonable for the Portland area, two lunches and 3 beers were around $55 with tip. Of course the selection is limited to Deschutes beers, but if you can't find something in that line-up you don't like, you need to check your tastebuds. Walked out with a purchased bomber of Black Butte XX. Great place. (1,154 characters)

We were in town for the Oregon Brewer's Festival, this was a must-stop on our list of breweries to hit - and they certainly didn't disappoint. A very nice selection of brews to pick from including rarities. The food kicks ass too. The bartender was quick and helpful. Absolute blast. Wish this NC boy lived closer. (314 characters)

Had lunch here on 6/25/15. Great brewpub. So many beers on tap, food was really good, cool decor. The urinals are HUGE. Parking is a drag in the Pearl District. Highly recommended. (180 characters)

Deschutes was a find on a trip to Portland and I'm a huge fan of the beers (Mirror Pond is probably my favorite Pale Ale). The public house is in a busy walking area in the city and with in a few block radius of about 5 other breweries so it made for a nice little walking tour.

When we walked in it was near the dinner rush so all the seating was taken including the bar so we grabbed a few stools in the bar-ish area with a large wooden table top that stretched he length of the walkway. Not the most comfortable spot but it would do. The service was slower then average since it was so busy - it took about 15 minutes to get our first round and another 10 after we finished to get another. We didn't get food so I can't comment on that ( but it was looking good )

The beer selection was slightly higher then average with there flagship beers 6 or 7 one off batches and a few bottle only releases. I went with a flight of Brewer's Choice which was mostly the one off batches, which included a Belgian single, a couple IPAs, a saison and couple others I can't recall. All very fresh and great on this day of beer tours.

The decor/vibe was plane jane.. I had higher hopes i suppose. Very mutch a restaurant feel with not much character except for the brick walls and view of the brewing settup behind the bar. (1,314 characters)

High energy, Friday lunch crowd during a mid-April rain storm. Mostly full house, but cheerful, helpful service.
I chose the Red Chair NWPA (nitro), which turned out to be outstanding - nicely hopped, full delicious flavor. Highly Recommended! Maybe it was where we were seated, but I cannot remember seeing a very wide selection of draft brew offerings. There was a bottle menu that was very extensive, and had some great strong ale and seasonal choices.
Good menu selection for food. Great pub burger. Very attentive and helpful staff. I have not been to the main facility in Bend, but our experience here was excellent! (631 characters)
