This is a nice place in Newports Old Town. A modern building with a friendly open bar with views to the street and a side dining room. They even have a room upstairs, kind of a beer and breakfast place.
I like to stop here when I'm headed for Mo's or my wife is shopping the galleries that are near by. Galleries are always better when there is a beer place for guys.
The beer selection includes pretty much everything that Rogue has current. There have been times when something I wanted on tap was not available across the bay but was on tap here.
The food is typical pub food and pizza. It goes well with the beer. And this is the place on the coast where you can get the Rogue Rum. So snack across the bay and dine here.

Dropped in here on 31 Aug 2012 for a light lunch. First stop in Oregon (outside an airport) and stop #7 on the Aug-Sep CA-OR beer tour.
Mid Friday afternoon, not too busy, maybe a quarter full. About 20 tables, mix of 4&6 tops, two dining areas plus the bar area. Maybe 30 beers on tap. Lots of beer, merch and swag for sale. Service was a bit slow. Food was pretty good, but overall value wasn't too great, $30 before tip for one beer, an iced tea, house salad and seafood cocktail. For some reason Rogue is really into surfboards here.
As promised, a large B&W pic of the naked lady in the tub to the right of the bar.

Of course the best part is the beers. I live on the East Coast, so this is something of a trip to Mecca for us. I went to the newer brewery across the bay from the commercial harbor. Lovely spot with lots of wind-swept views of the bay. No problem parking which can be a bear on the more densely packed port side. It is fun to walk through the brewery to get to the shop and eatery.
They have Jenga and other stuff to amuse kiddos.
They brought us a beer to taste. They have a wide selection of beers, but not everything Rogue makes. I don't really expect a brew pub to have all beers ever made by the brewery, but maybe I have low standards. There is a wide selection.
We went three times I think. I agree that the staff were uneven. Seemed like kids with a summer job. Food was a bit slow at times. Quality was pretty good but even: some very good, some so-so.
But the quality of the beers pushes it to an A- for me.
