This brewpub is easy to find in downtown Bend. It was within walking distance of my motel. It's a big place, well-lighted and non-smoking throughout! There are TVs all around and lots of brewania on the walls. It wasn't very crowded on a Tuesday night in early October, but the sound system was a bit too loud for normal conversation.

They have the complete selection of Deschutes brews, of course, including ones that are probably only available here. I had several different brews. They were all average to above average. The true standouts are Black Butte Porter and their Obsidian Stout, which was available cask-conditioned on a nitro tap.

I had the hazlenut-encrusted salmon, which was good, though not great. Their beers are the reason to visit.

If you're in Bend, make sure you swing by this place.

Great service here for the most part, and if you're into beer you should know to expect some really nice stuff here. There were some problems in the kitchen. Our server brought us the appetizer we ordered, and then less than two minutes later brought us our entrees! To top it off, my mashed potatoes were cold. Seems like quite a rookie mistake that I'm surprised no one in the kitchen caught.

I stopped by the Deschutes brewpub while I was on a recent pilgrimage to Bend and had three beers and a late lunch. I can't wait to return!

Service was great and, as might be supposed, the staff knew a lot about the beer being served and were able to make recommendations. There were a number of seasonal and brewpub-only beers available, a fact of which I look forward to taking advantage the next time I visit. I can't speak much to the atmosphere inside, as I drank and dined al fresco and did some people-watching in old-town Bend. Folks are friendly there, I'll give them that!

The reuben I had was so huge that I was unable to finish it, despite a long, lunchless drive from Seattle. Beware! You will have leftovers.

Food is always very good. Personal favorites include the pretzel appetizer and the mac and cheese entree.

Beer is excellent. The large beer menu offers Deschutes regular and seasonal favorites, but I always order a flight of the brewpub exclusives. These consist of beers only available at this location, and there are always some very good beers in the flight. Brewpub exclusive bottles can be purchased, as well.

Service is very good.

I visit this spot every time I'm in Bend, and I will continue to do so. Would recommend.
