There's a certain expectation in the Mcmanamin's empire. Good pub food, generally good but not necessarily great beers, cool and historic buildings or funky atmosphere.

This is an exception. The food is the same. \ The beer is the same so no complaints.

But the bar is just a standard bar. There's not charm or funk. This could be nearly any high-end 19th hole on any golf course in america. Light wood, brass rails, tables and barstools. Unlike all the others in the empire, no antique accents or charming decor. It's just a bar.

So at least its not a 19th hole with B.M.C. only. It's a 19th hole with better beer. But it's my least favorite McMenamins so far.

One of my favorite McMenamins as it is on a golf course (and a very historic one to boot) and at the fab Oregon Coast - two big pluses!

Atmosphere is as good as any McMenamins. The restaurant sits up above the golf course, so the views are nice. The pro shop and golf course are actually run by the McM's.

If you like McMen's, this one is worth a stop. Lots of great historic photos on the walls - take some time to look at them.

This place is not far from Cannon Beach and on the way to Astoria.

Oregon is so great!
