This Bend icon has been one of my favorite dinner spots for over 40 years. Even though we no longer live there, any time I'm in town I make a point of eating here. They're famous for their scones, but the food is great, the menu diverse, and the service excellent. A great wine menu, and deserts too - if you have room! They always surprise with dinner specials and their soups are wonderful. You won't be disappointed.

We've lived in Bend for 4 years but never made it to the back room of Pine Tavern (have been there for happy hour several times!). Finally we had a guest in town and decided to try it out. It was really cute, cozy - wood paneled walls and excellent service. A fireplace would have added to it, but it was warm enough. I really liked the "private dining" little areas midway to the back room. Perfect for catching up with friends you haven't seen in awhile.

My only complaint was I ordered the Oregon Rockfish, and it was not very fresh. It was coated in a lot of spices and had a delicious beurre blanc sauce on it, but it couldn't hide the taste. Everything else was decent - my father in law had the chicken marsala and my husband had the ribs. While the food wasn't exceptional, the service definitely was! Our waiter was just attentive enough, very professional, and we enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. Overall, a good experience and we would go back, but maybe not with foodie friends.

The Thansksgiving dinner menu had some nice options...turkey dinner, prime rib, salmon or prawn linguini. We had the turkey and prime rib. Both were good, but not outstanding. I think we had high expectations because of a former diningroom experience. Seemed a little spendy too. We'll definitely be back for happy hour, but will most likely skip the diningroom in the future.

I was disappointed. It was Thanksgiving dinner. The menu was small and there were no vegetarian options at all. They removed prawns from a pasta dish to accommodate me. They charged for the meal as if it was the full dinner (including prawns). I paid about $27 for noodles with a few piece of tomato and olive oil.

Thanksgiving Day and we had the Prime Rib special @ $36.95. It may have been the worst prime rib we have ever had. It was tough and awful. We have read bad reviews on The Pine Tavern and have been there in the past and wanted to try it again. Today was our last visit ever.👎

Disappointed that they changed prime rib night from Sunday to Friday & Saturday. Last visit best prime rib ever. Tonight fish came cold and over cooked. Will try another time!

We had not been here in quite some time so we were very excited to have my husband's birthday dinner here. My 11 year old was even more excited as he has never been. Within ten minutes of being seated, our server dumped a glass of ice water in my son's lap with barely an apology. Our waiter then came over to get our drink order and told us they were out of prime rib. Disappointing, and lack of planning, but that happens sometimes. My son wanted to add a baked potato to his order... he'd been talking about it all day. Our waiter took the order. About 10-15 minutes later were told they are OUT of baked potatoes??!! How does that happen on a Saturday night? Have a staff member drive to the GROCERY STORE if need be. The waiter didn't seem too impacted, made a weak apology to our son and asked us for replacements, which we did not care for. Our meals were all decent, but nothing outstanding. You pay for extra scones now. Really? Service was luke warm and slow, with a very empty restaurant for a Saturday night. We then had to ask for the potatoes we didn't get to be removed from our bill. With all the amazing food competition in downtown Bend, this icon needs to step it up. We understand there are bad days, but the handling of what went bad was so poor, we'll go elsewhere.

I travel to Bend sometimes twice per month and this was my fourth and worst meal I have had at your restaurant.
The other three times were perfect, however this visit was warm steak - no where close to hot/ sizzling at the time it was served, by the time I was finished my meal the steak was cold.
The baked potatoe was the same condition only add in small as well, about the size of 1 1/2 of your biscuits
Very surprised and disappointed for a $33 cold steak
We all have bad days, but not at this price.

I love the feel of pine tavern, very cozy yet classy and very Bend. I have tried several menus items and never had a bad meal. The salmon was amazing and the dessert was to die for! Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
Out most recent dinner we found out that the owner is a Veteran and serves free meals to vets on Veterans Day. I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

We 2 veterans and a friend dined at Pine Tavern on Veteran's Day. Every year, this very generous local restaurant honors veterans with a free meal on 11/11. Even though they offer a limited menu of free items, it is a good variety and the food is always outstanding. Outside of this occasion, we often come here for happy hour and occasionally for a special occasion dinner. It is always delicious, service can be slow but is always friendly, and it's always busy. Make a reservation if you plan to eat a meal here.

When we lived in Bend, OR the Pine Tavern was our favorite westside restaurant. Friendly upbeat staff and great views of Mirror Pond. After dinner a nice stroll through Drake Park was always invigorating. Our most recent visit was disappointing in the available menu choices and our waiter was less attentive than we had ever experienced before. He forgot our drinks, he forgot to have the chicken blackened. Perhaps he wasn't feeling well but we would still recommend the Pine Tavern for its history, ambience, and the Mirror Pond views.

We had a great time at Pine Tavern. Carly was our waitress and she was excellent. There were 6 of us and it was a family get-together, so we weren't pressed for time. We had a great chance to sit and visit and didn't feel that we were hurried along in any way. Carly helped us take pictures. After having desert as well, we had been there for almost 2 hours. Thanks for a fabulous time!

Ever since the acquisition, the prices are higher, and the quality isn't as good. One scone per person is really shaving costs to the absurd, and the stroganoff totally misses the mark these days. That said, it is still a very nice setting, and the service was good.

I have been going to Pine Tavern for 28 years. When making the reservation on Open Table, I left explicit instructions that I be the only one to receive the tab, NO exceptions. I also called the restaurant prior to coming in at our designated time to confirm, once again, that the tab would be brought to me. When the tab was brought to the table, it was given to our guest who apparently had already paid. The tab was well over a $100. It was humiliating to say the least. Through conversation with the reservation desk, I confirmed that the waiter had “in fact” been apprised of the request. The circumstances definitely put a damper on what had been a nice evening. I most likely will not return. When you pay a significant amount of money for a meal, you expect professionalism.

We've always loved taking friends there. The last few times we have not been satisfied by the quality of the food. Two of us had prime rib and they were very tough, another ordered a blackened ribeye and it didn't come out blackened. It's sad to see this Bend icon go down hill.

The clam chowder was fabulous. The non-natives were totally impressed. The waiter rushed an order for small children who were along. Stuffed salmon was the special and it was special. My wife said the chicken Marsala was the best she ever had, which makes me resentful, but what can you do?

Seated on time per our reservation, then waited 25 minutes before a waiter asked if we'd like to order a drink.

Food was pedestrian at best: tasteless crab cakes, overcooked pork chops, cardboard mashed potatoes and cold broccoli.

Service was awful, and prices were outrageous for the quality of the fare.

The place is a tourist trap. Stay away!

My family and I have recently moved into Sun River from Southern California. I was treated to your restaurant by a friend. I brought my daughter for her first time to The Pine Tavern for her first time. Our server Lena was excellent. My daughter ordered half-tuna sandwich and chicken tortilla soup. Unfortunately; the tuna salad tasted like it needed "something more ". But she enjoyed the soup. I loved the pulled pork sandwich!!!
I would have liked the table for two (at the left) overlooking the view; however, was seated on the right where the view is not as good. Very enjoyable/will be back; but how can we request the table on the left overlooking the view?

While the Pine Street Tavern is almost a landmark place to dine. It has a great outdoor patio overlooking the water in the summer, nice interior as well & service staff are very pleasant. Food is good but not great. The only real 'shortcoming' is that it can take an hour from ordering to serving your meal! We visited the Pine St Tavern 3X in the last 2 months and it seems the kitchen has a difficulty keeping up with order.

I used to love the pine tavern but on this day, my birthday it was horrible. The special of the day linguine was like a throw together leftovers and the flies were horrible making it hard to eat. Then the waiter got to busy and we waited a long time for our check and box for leftovers. While waiting a fly landed in our food then died on the side of the plate, so no leftovers for us.
The only good part was the scones and honey butter that you only get 1 a piece now and get charged for any extra. Not a pleasant experience.
