Another shopping center McM's. This one is in the historic Willamette district with fun little shops up the hill. It is close to I-205 so if you are going by it is easy to get to from the freeway.

A good sized room with space for large groups in the center and booths around the outside. Much like the other strip mall McM's. The art is typical of other places and this one has a nice sideyard with plants so you can look out and watch the afternoon or evening go by.

Consistent food and beer. A ncie neighborhood meeting place. Service is generally good. I go to this one or Sunnyside more than the others.

This is pretty much your standard, run of the mill McM pub, located in a strip mall just off the I-205 10th Street Exit in West Linn. It's close by to my condo and I applaud the fact that (unlike many McM pubs) it has a TV for watching sports events. This particular location is fairly small, with probably no more then 12 to 15 tables. There is also a small bar area right in front of you as you walk in and the place has a lot of hanging plants. There's also the usual whimsical artwork, which reminds one where you are. The place has the usual suspects beer-wise, which consists of Ruby, Hammerhead, Terminator, IPA and a few seasonals. Quality is pretty much standard for McM, and was good enough the night I was watching Civil War 2008. Service was a bit slow initially, but was friendly and relatively prompt after the first beer. Didn't try the food, but what I saw looked OK. It's pretty much your standard McM menu line-up.

Nothing extraordiairy here, but on the other hand there is the usual McM selection and vibe, which in my opinion is never a bad thing. It's nice to know this place is nearby...
