Edgefield is one of my favorite places in the Portland area. There is a ton of stuff to do around Edgefield, you could literally be entertained for days here. Beer in my opinion is right on par if not better than most places in Portland. Not sure why but the beer is very underrated. Food at the Black Rabbit is outstanding and service has always been the same. I really can't come up with one bad thing to say about this place, if I could choose to go to one place in the Portland area Edgefield would be it.

Troutdale provided a great environment, extremely relaxing, and very confortale scenery.

The sprawling site has plenty of room to host many folks without making one feel like they are amonst a lot of people. Lay back, taste the local brew.

The food is quite good. I onyl had pizza and beer, and the price was what one would exptect.

The nightlife in the outside restaurant was simple, like on your own back porch, and the entire crowd looked as relaxed and was friendly. Felt like all were family.

My wife's sister suggested we stop here before we went on a Brewery Tour down near and around Hood River. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with this place. It had a great atmosphere and the beer was above my expectations.

It took a while for a waiter to stop by our table, but after that the service was okay. I ordered a pesto chicken sandwich and it was delightful. I wanted to try out at least three other things on the menu. We ordered a sampler of beers and almost all of them were above average. None were below in my opinion.

I visited McMenamins Edgefield last week while in Portland, mainly to see Ray Lamontagne in concert but I became quite excited when I checked out the website and learned a bit more about the place. Apparently it is a 70 acre resort with a hotel, movie theater, gold course, outdoor concert venue, several bars, a distillery, and several restaurants...pretty cool! When I arrived I found out that most of the bars were extremely tiny (which is really cool on any day but a concert day!) and fairly concentrated which made me wonder what the heck they were doing with all that acreage. I spent some time in the Pub and in Jerry's Ice House. Had some really tasty pizza and two beers (Hammerhead and Ruby) which were average at best. Place was a quick drive from Portland and a fairly nice escape from the city.

I stopped for a beer and a bite to eat at the Edgefield Brewery while traveling to Portland.

The place is a historic site, used to be a country poor farm (pre-welfare), now a hotel and a collection of pubs and other hospitality facilities. Multiple venues on the grounds including cozy little pubs, and huge tents for concerts and such. They say the hotel is haunted. I could spend a lot of time at this place. We went to a pub located in the old power plant building.

Quality was typical McMennamins brews. If you like them the quality is good.

Service was good. The place was busy with the St Paddy's day weekend festivities.

Selection was again McMenamins. 16 taps or so.

Food was pretty good. Typical of other McM's places. Pub fare for the most part, with a Irish special for the weekend.

I like these places. They are interesting and located all over Oregon and southeast Washington. I think the quality ois good and prices are reasonable. I could be a regular if I lived near one of these places.

For atmosphere, Edgefield is amazing. In fact, I am biased to liking most McMenamin's locations. I think they have a knack for their properties.

I've been to several weddings, concerts, on a date, and just flat out drinking here. I always have a good time.

There are many different bars here as well as a spa which I'd like to check out sometime.

The beer is typically McMenamin's fodder. It's decent. The service is whatever...maybe better than standard McMenamin's service if you're familiar with their staffing trends.

There are places to relax, booths to site in, places to stroll, you can play pool, pinball, relax indoors or out. It's a great spot.

I have tried many of McMenamins beers over the years, but had never visited one of their properties. The Edgefield property is about 20 mminutes outside Portland. We stopped in here after hanging out at Multnomah Falls and the Columbia Gorge. Edgefield is located in the tiny town of Troutdale and is one of the most interesting places I have ever visited. The property has lots of buildings and houses a hotel, golf course, and spa. There are various bars scattered throughout (one is a wine bar and one is dedicated to Jerry Garcia). They make their own beer, spirits, and wine here.

They have two restaurants, the Black Rabbit and the Power Station Pub. The Power Station Pub is the less expensive option and this is where we ate lunch. The food is your typical brewpub joint. All 3 of us ordered burgers, which we felt were not very good. They reminded me of Sysco frozen hockey puck burgers. My wife's fries were not crisp and were oily; the tater tots I had were tasty and were Ore'ida-riffic.

The beer is composed of the usual McMenamain's suspects. They have Ruby, Hammerhead, IPA, Terminator Stout, Bagdad Ale, Black Rabbit Porter, and an ESB. The IPA was a little too heavy for me, but was not terrible.

Our server was a little aloof, but our food did come as ordered.

The prices were not bad, with burgers running around $8 and pints around $4.

This is worth a stop if you are visiting the Columbia Gorge area. While I won't vouch for the Power Station food, the atmosphere of the property makes up for the food quality. Next time I would try and sample some wine and spirits and save the beer for when I returned to Portland.

On our first visit in May '99, prior to our move later that same year, my wife and I drank pints of Hammerhead and Ruby on a cool, rainy afternoon in the Power Station Restaurant. We've returned in the 10+ years so many times I've lost count.

Today was the fourth time in six years that the office has held an impromptu golf outing at the Pub Course (once a single course, now a pair: a 12-hole version and a (considerably tougher) 20-hole commitment). It's hard to encapsulate all that Edgefield is in a single review without rambling; suffice to say it's a hotel, restaurant(s), pub(s), movie theater, concert venue (we saw The Decemberists and Blind Pilot earlier this summer), golf course(s), winery/distillery, garden(s), glass studio...shall I continue? It's lush and whimsical and filled with quirky gems (Little Red Shed anyone?) that make repeat visits a necessity, even for us locals...

The courtyard outside the Power Station/Black Rabbit is where we've eaten on the last several vists - right under the looming water tower. Food is generally good, pub fare with few outstanding attributes. Burgers, salads and pastas are met with the occasional jambalaya or steak or mussels dish. Beers vary from pub to pub (the Shed and Golf Clubhouse each had 4 standards: Ruby, Terminator, Hammerhead, and Sunflower IPA...plus a nitro Irish Stout), and may be served in either glass pints or plastic cups, depending on whether it's 'for here' or 'to go'. Wines and spirits made by McMenamins are plentiful, too; it's truly an imbibing playground for adults.

Though my ratings may not add up to earn an 'outstanding' score, a visit to Edgefield should be a 'must' for any visitor (or resident); a great way to spend a few relaxing hours and definitely one of the Northwest's treasures. Easy to reach off I-84, via Exit 16 or 17...
