We had a lovely evening and meal. Glad we were able to sit near the window to see the river,trees etc. The service was excellent and thorough. The menu was explained very well. The menu saying happy birthday was a nice touch.

My wife and I visited for our Anniversary dinner. IT WAS PERFECT!! Our server was fabulous!! The staff was aware of our anniversary and made us feel very special. They have a customer for life when we are in town.

Thought this was just your average tavern. Walked in and it was a nicely laid out sports bar, but nooo... the real restaurant is in the back. Water view, pine tree trunks in the middle of the room, white table clothes, unexpectedly comprehensive menu, and superb service. Looking forward to coming back. Will check out the deck and patio next time.

Always a treat to eat and visit with Clients and friends at Pine Tavern. Rarely disappointed and the food is always great and the service outstanding! That is one reason we continue to frequent PT and the main reason PT has been around for as long as it has. A real Oregon treasure!!!

We went there for Mother's Day evening, the Hostess went the extra mile to get us the seating we wanted, thanks! Unfortunately, either the waitstaff or our waitress was under prepared. We waited an hour for a soda, a beer, and a bottle of wine. We had chosen the "Featured" wine, which was very good, and they had to "go find it in the basement". We are very patient when waiting for our food, as long as we have a drink to sip. Fortunately, the kitchen was on point, everything coming out of the kitchen was done perfectly and nicely plated.

Food is always good. But each time we’ve gone, the servers seem to hate their job! And make it a point to tell you. Overwhelmed, too busy, on and on and on.
Too bad. It makes me want to chose another restaurant from now on.
As a diner you want to go in and relax and enjoy.

Ive lived in central Oregon for 20+ years & been to the Pine Tavern 7-8 times. Usually I avoid downtown Bend like the plague due to parking, but when out of town guests or family come, this restaurant is always a good choice. We were originally seated by the outside door, but they happily re-seated us to a different table. Friendly staff. Way nicer experience than any chain restaurant.

Dinner in the dining room is always a great time. The food and presentation is appealing and consistent. We try to bring friends and business associates for dinner as often as possible to share the experience with others. The service makes us feel like we are the only ones there dining.

Pine Tavern is a terrific restaurant with a lot of great history. The service is fantastic, the food is delicious, and the view of Mirror Pond from the terrace is beautiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We love the Pine Tavern. It is such a special place. It's full of local history, and a pine tree grows right through the dinning room. The food is good. They have a fairly set menu, however they change it up with specials and wines of the month. Over all the Pine Tavern is fun for a special evening. I can't wait until the patio opens!

I think a brunch should include more then one lunch food. All of the food on the buffet was cold. They omelet station was nice but very slow. Carved beef was lukewarm. Desserts were not good at all. Paid $60 and walked out very unhappy and hungry. Staff is friendly and the ambiance is nice.

It was our Anniversary! Quinn picked up on it and we appreciate the celebratory desert! We had checked out the menu on the website and then had a couple of questions that Quinn answered before we could ask! The Halibut was awesome and the Chicken Marsala was even better than we remembered!

Quinn took great care of us and we couldn't have asked for better!

The Pine Tavern has excellent food and service. It has expanded its menu of international beers, and we really like the Belgian offerings. Tasty comfort food, great desserts, and their yummy signature scones make this restaurant a top choice in Bend.

We brought our family from out of town to experience Pine Tavern as we know it. They were extremely pleased. Many had the special Halibut and it was prepared beautifully and presented well. The server Quinn was good with all of us but always asked about the needs of the 2 children. Thank you.

I made reservations for dinner online and put in the special event box it was a birthday event. I dont know what I expected because nothing else was asked of me. So I assumed the restaurant would see that and make sure the waiter knew. I didn't feel I needed to say anything and nothing special happened. I should have told the waiter. Disappointing since I know it's a family oriented, cozy place.

The “good ol’ Pine Tav” just ain’t what it used to be. Mediocre food, nice people working there, but they just seem uninspired. Of course this was a wintery evening and everyone in town was tired of the snow, and when the sun comes out and the grass is growing, it is still one of the best patios in Bend and should not be missed. I sure hope they can get their kitchen inspired again.

Very good service but food could have been better. The meat loaf had a strange taste - from some strong spice. I won’t order it again. The Cesar salad barely had any dressing on it. Fortunately I ordered the onion soup - it was very good. The mile high dessert is just that - an ice cream concoction about a mile high! It’s enough for 4 people.

We celebrated my sister birthday on Saturday. Pine Tavern was the perfect place to celebrate! The celebration began with a special menu saying Happy Birthday at the top, and ended with a free dessert! All the food was delicious and the service was perfect! We had fish tender and moist, prime rib perfectly done, and Mac and cheese which was lovely and cheesy!
