If you want to taste Portland, Deshutes Brewery and Public House is Portland. Great beer selection, creative comfort food.

Delicious food and very friendly staff. They were busy but we walked right in with a reservation. Our server gave us time to finish our drinks before even asking if we were ready for the check, so we didn’t feel rushed at all, despite them being busy. The ambiance is relaxed and family friendly.

Great selection of craft beers. The food choices where amazing and different take on many classic comfort foods- take a look at the menu, it speaks for itself. The location was great and one block from my favorite bookstore on the planet, Powell's Bookstore. I recommend eating here and try a sample flight of their beers.

The elk burger is soooooo good! Deschutes never disappoints on the plate and their beer is pretty good too. They have a garage door that brings the outside in which is lovely in the summertime but does include the noise of the city.

Big family vacation from Michigan to Oregon, for an important wedding. Staying in the “pearl” district and looking for good food and drink.
The food was ok, the service was ok, the place itself was unique looking with carved wooden beams and decor.
Our server was distracted and didn’t check on us very much. We had empty drink glasses and waited for him to come by several times.

We were looking forward to this dinner for weeks to celebrate our move back from the east coast. We dined at 7 on a Sunday and were excited for a rewarding, delicious dinner. We ordered our apps and main courses only to have our main courses come out 5 minutes after our appetizers, everything was basically order fired and not coursed. We had bowl of hot soup and a pretzel; I don’t know about you but that’s impossible to eat in 5 minutes. When our entrees arrived we had to put them to the side in order to finish our appetizers. I wouldn’t have a problem with this but the last time our meal was coursed out so that is what we expected. We felt extremely rushed and didn’t want to stay for dessert after this. Also, I did find a few, small shells in my crab roll, so I would recommend being extra cautious when eating this. The food was delicious, but having all of our food delivered at once made us feel extremely rushed and disappointed. So, I guess my advice is to course out the dinner yourself if you want a relaxing meal.

Group of 9 for 6 pm, confusion at Hostess as majority (6) of my group arrived 545 and was seated and when we arrived 550 was told that we wouldn't be seated unless everyone was present. OK, fair. Called others at 610 and told us they were seated, just need some consistency there on entry. Staff and service was very consistent and attentive. Checked back regularly for drinks and needs. Adjusted the shades for parties nearby due to early evening sun. Food from apps to dinner was turned over well, not long not short, just right. Little noisy, but it's a brewery. Even with my hostess issue, my guests were very happy w the evening. That's all that matters.

We met friends from out of town for lunch. Had a great lunch and our waiter was spot on! He offered suggestions and did not rush us. The boys had burgers and said they were delicious. I had the strawberry salad with chicken thighs and avocado - outstanding! We got the Key Lime Pie for dessert and it was tasty! I'd come back for just the dessert : ) It really is a perfect Portland place to grab a bite as it has a great atmosphere and great food. We recommend it!

The noise level was way too loud. It would bee best for your survey to label the noise level:
too quiet, too loud, just right.

My daughter and I were traveling to Portland on business and wanted to experience the Deschutes Public House restaurant. We love Deschutes’ beer back home in Texas, but we were amazed by the delicious food and hospitality we received. Thanks for a delightful meal and beers, and look forward to being with you again very soon!
