We both had the king salmon which never disappoints. It was so yummy and crème brûlée for dessert. Our favorite Sunriver restaurant. Always a joy and lovely last night in Sunriver after a family vacation.

Cute little spot in the heart of Redmond. One of the best Old Fashioned’s I’ve ever had right along with one of the best ribeyes in the US! Definitely a go-to here in town…

We love Mtn Burger although 7/16 we had a difficult time with how hot it was inside the restaurant. AC is definitely needed!

Every time I come here, I get excellent service and excellent food. I’m sorry to see that they will be closing in a couple of weeks. All the help has been outstanding, and Bend as a community, will miss this restaurant when they close.

We feature neighborhood cuisine in a traditional American style, as well as beer, wine and cocktails served in the bar. The Culinary Director, John Gurnee, has created a consistent and approachable menu with some fun twists, like daily specials, a raw seafood bar and salads you can build yourself with a variety of toppings. The kids' menu also gives families better options for healthy food and appealing choices for their children.

We had visitors from out of country and after considering all choices in Bend we chose the Washington,thinking it would represent the vibe of Bend that everyone loves and we weren’t disappointed. We were sittted in the row of tables next to the bar and had them sit facing the bar and outdoor patio. Perfect! The food was true to its explanation by the waitress, and everyone was happy. However ern the noise level was very high as everyone was enjoying a great summer evening.

Food was amazing. Service was a bit disappointing. Our server never spoke to us or engaged in any conversation. Never checked on us once food delivered. Had to ask 3 times for water. But food made up for the service! Will definitely be back.

I hate to say it, but it used to be better. We really love Pine Tavern, but it's feeling a bit run down and the food is okay, but not great. We will continue to come back, but this wonderful, landmark restaurant needs to step it up to remain competitive in a continually evolving market.
