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.

Cavernous, bustling brewpub in the Pearl District (Portland, OR) filled with Northwest decor. Wide selection of core and one-off brews on draft served as 0.3 and 0.5 liters in 6X 4 oz sample trays, as well as ages bottles. All of Deachutes classics and some tasty variations including cask and nitro.

This was easily one of my best brewery/taphouse restaurant experiences. Great selection of beers, huge restaurant area with incredible food. Two Abyss varients available for to go purchase. Awesome environment!

Monstrous place in the heart of downtown. I went there since my wife is a big Deschutes fan and it was packed on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was fine but the staff was not very attentive. It took us several times to get out beers and when we decided to eat at the Pub it took a long time to order our food, get our food or be able to get to any waiter. Having said that, the people were friendly when they dealt with us. The food was pretty good but a little overpriced as far as I am concerned.
The beer selection was very cool. You had your classics, your seasonals, your special one and the wonderful Pub Series (you must try one of those!)
Overall, a good experience.

Went here on my our last evening in Portland, and my wife and I had a great time. The beer was great and loved the food. Service was great, but noticed food service was much faster than drink service. Had an Armory XPA from cask along with the Stoic from the tap. Set outside and enjoyed the great weather (much better than my part of Texas in July!) and people watching. Portland is great for people watching. Had a great time!
