I agree fully - rude and snooty staff, and a burger as dry as the Sahara. From the attitude of not wanting to make it right and the preparation of the food, it appears there is too much Bend Oregon in Bend Oregon.

I took my lady here for dinner and had some of the best service I have ever had. Sadly, everything else was a train wreck. From the over cooked and chewy steamer clams, to the greasy fried artichoke hearts. We were saddened that a place

The Pine Tavern was fine, but I don't think I will be back very often as I would prefer to spend my money on something a bit more exceptional. The food is alright (and actually the mud pie is wonderful), but you could get something much

Our first time at the Pine Tavern. Greeted poorly at door, could have been more professional & accomadating. Waited in lounge to be seated, ordered beverages which had to be paid for in lounge rather than put on tab with dinner. Once seated service was excellent, very prompt and handled well by all staff. Clam chowder was excellent and hot, a real plus when so many times cool soup is served so often. Spouse had halibut special with scallops and her change from rice to potatoes was accepted and served with no issues. I chose the Oregon beef, wild mushroom pasta, which was served with a very ordinary tomato sauce. I was very surprised to find the leading ingredient, beef, was very well hidden or non existent. Mushrooms were plentiful however. This appears to be a very popular restaurant judging from the amount of customers seated, so will give the benefit of the doubt and try again.

We went at 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday and were seated immediately in a nice booth by the window. Noticed that by 6:00 p.m. there was quite a line, so go early! We ordered a few mixed drinks from the bar which were made well. Had the Steak Salad plus Mac & Cheese... both were exceptional! They serve warm rolls that taste suspiciously like donuts and are equally as good! Our server was very friendly and quite attentive, given how busy she was by the time we left! The tavern was built in 1936 and there are fun photos of the place from years ago. It has since been tastefully remodeled and is quite cozy and inviting!

Oh my goodness this is a must to take out of town guest the yummy scones with honey butter is almost sinful. They have good food and service and sitting out on the patio during the summer is lovely.

Watch yourself when they serve the freshly baked scones with honey butter. You might spoil your appetite for dinner! Not always easy choices on the hearty traditional meals. Servings are plentiful, service is great, and atmospere is terrific. A Bend local's favorite and perfect for the visitor too. Great place for the holidays too. Walk off your dinner with a stroll around Drake Park afterwards.

This is one of our favorite places to dine at when we are in Bend Or. There is a huge pine tree in the middle of the restaurant. Casual dress is fine. An upscale menu but there is a wide variety of foods and you can choose a less expensive dinner. Definitely a fun place to go to.

I personally rank Pine Tavern as my second favorite restaurant in Bend. I love the oldstyle atmosphere.
I have always experienced good service and delicious meals. The scones are untraditional but my wife and I could make a meal of them. The chef has prepared a good menu and has wonderful daily specials that are usually to tempting to deny. A great place to take the whole family, which is rare among some of Bend's finer eateries. Weather permitting it is conveniently located for an after dinner stroll in Drake Park or for window shopping downtown.

Everytime we have eaten at the Pine Tavern, it is a great experience. The food is excellent, service is always tops and the atmosphere is exceptional. I am a vegetarian and am always accomodated with delicious food. The cooks are willing to do a special and I am always delightfully surprised when I taste it. They have made portabella pasta dishes for me, roasted veggies and pente pasta, and various other great concoctions. The deserts are so good and we always have a great dinner experience. We make a habit of getting there early, before the dinner crowd and have consistantly had great service. Would definately recommend the Pine Tavern to anyone looking for a delicious meal in a beautiful place. The patio gardens are a lovely place to eat overlooking the Deschutes River.

My husband and I had made reservations for 11:45 on a Friday afternoon. When we arrived we were greeted by a middle aged hostess who was very rude in telling us that they were not ready to seat us, and then had to sit in the waiting area and listen as the hostess and an older gentlemen bickered about something or the other for the next five minutes. When we were finally seated by a very professional blonde girl who happened to be our server, she apologized for the wait. The food was pretty good, the service was excellent other than that one instance with the hostess and older man, and the prices were decent compared to the amount of food we were served. The view is spectacular, as well.

We had dinner at this cute place an really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The food was very good and the scones are to die for! My had the Prawn and tortellini dish and I had the Prime Rib. Both meals were very tasty, though the mashed potaotes could have been warmer. We had Mud Pie for dessert and loved it! The staf was freindly and attentive. Our water glass was ALWAYS full. It is a cute place that has a view of anice patio and garden plus views of a river. It is worth try, you love it.

My family and I were told to try the Pine Tavern while visiting Bend. We were treated so rude by both the hostess who stood up front giggling and rolling her eyes and by some woman named Susan who was seemingly intoxicated or on some pills, we think she may of been the manager or the owner. We were crammed into a small booth fit for about 4 or 5 people we were finally moved to a table that actually fit the 8 of us. The manager woman rudely moved us to our new table basically throwing our 'scones' on the table and then stumbled off. We kept being treated like an inconvenience or a bother that we wanted to spend our money there. Our food was terrible. The steaks were tough and the sauce on the ribs was overly tangy, our mashed potatoes were cold. We had had it and just wanted our check. Our first and second waitress were very nice and probably the youngest things in that building. The food was terrible and staff was rude !

This is my favorite restaurant in Bend. The service is good and the food is always great. I like the quiche and salad for lunch. They are quick so you can get in & out for lunch if you need to, or you can stay and visit. They don't rush you. I would recommend.

Once you get beyond the delicious scones it is a dull menu with average food and lousy service. The building and location are cute but is way expensive for the coffee shop look it has. I tried for the 3rd time tonight and never write reviews but I have nto been able to see why this would be a top rated restaurant

I went to the Pine Taver for dinner with my mother because locally, its legendary for a cozy atmosphere, and great food. However, our experience didn't even come close to measuring up with the hype. Upon walking in the front door, we knew we made a mistake, and it only got worse after that. Despite the cute exterior of the building, the interior is very "Denny's". The menu offerings are barely palatable (below average) and the salad bar is scary. I ordered a salmon burger, based on the great menu description. But when it arrived I was sadly disappointed. The bun was soaked, and the fries were withered and ice cold. My mothers salad (from the bar) was brown and unappatazing, and her soup had an oily residue on top. Our server was disorganized, unprofessional and I'm not sure she was old enough to drive. Plus, the entire restaurant reeked of that "dishroom" smell. Really, the only thing interesting about the Pine Tavern, is its location near the river. In my opinion, If you really want a view of the river while you eat, just go next door to the BBC (and get a better beer too)!!

Beautiful setting, great food and good service. My wife and I both had prime rib and found it to be one of the best we have ever had.... as was all the other food on our plates. A special experience.

Went to the Pine Tavern for a birthday celebration with another couple and boy were we disappointed. While the waitstaff was attentive and friendly, the food was definitely sub-par. The prime rib was just okay, and the halibut was overcooked and mushy. Scallops were chewy and no-flavor. The location is great, but save your $$ as it's expensive and there are much better places to try in Bend. Maybe they get by on location, but the only thing we liked was the scones (they are worth a stop). Grab a scone or two, and skip the rest. For a nice meal, go to BlackSmith, Merendas, or Zydeco instead.

Have been here many times and always bring out of town family and friends here. It's a Bend icon!!! Food is always delicious, service has always been good. Out of towners are always amazed at the two huge pine trees growing in the middle of the restaurant.

I have been to the Pine Tavern many times and it is always wonderful...the hot scones and honey butter alone make it worth the drive from Portland! We are always seated promptly and have execellent service--I have yet to have anything that I did not enjoy.

Pros: Service, scones

We went here with a large family group (11). We made reservations (which I highly recommend) and unlike MANY other restaurants we've made reservations at, The Pine Tavern was ready for us and we were immediately seated. The ambience is amazing. It is beautifully decorated with amazing art displays throughout. The interior is richly appointed in wood and although it is dark, it feels well-lit. In the rear of the restaurant are two HUGE trees (living) that extend upward through the roof. Amazing! The food was fantastic. We had several different appetizers (all great!)--and the famous sour-dough scones with honey butter. In our party, we had pasta, steaks and seafood. EVERYONE loved their meal. The service was first-rate. We never had to wait for anything. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

The food, service & general feel of this longtime resturant is great! they`re famous for their scones & honeybutter, but also, give the daily specials a try. When possible, do the outside dining for a pleasant experience.

Editorial from

In Short
Built in 1936, this place is as much a landmark as it is one of the city's best restaurants. Diners flock here for hearty, home-style meals served in an upscale cabin-like setting. A giant Ponderosa pine grows through…
