Want good bar food? And no, it’s not a trick question. You got it. This place was a local recommendation. Good beers and surprisingly good food for a brewery. And to be honest, I don’t expect much when I go to these types of places. After eating here though, I realized I should expect good food. This place did it. Why not others? And to think about it, where’s the line between breweries and gastropubs anyways? Deschutes may be that missing link.
The place was large and there were people waiting. We grabbed a pager anyways and went to the bar. We found some standing room and found out they served a full menu there. Pretty cool. We ordered away and made some friends. Pretty lively place not to. And to give you a sense of the wait, by the time we finished, our pager lit up. That was about an hour later. Yikes.
