Must go here if you are in Bend. It's one of my favorite bars in town, and in general for that matter. They really take pride in having great service and great, knowledgeable staff. Their food is generally pretty delicious, but their fine

Love Love Love the beer .. did I say that enough. I am a local Bend resident and hands down this is the best brew pub. The food is also good, not a big fan of the handmade too crunchy chips they give out but heck they are free with the lunch.. A great place to go downtown.. a locals favorite!

If you're from the Northwest, you've probably had some Deschutes beer. It's delicious, of course, and their brewery's food is equally good. Standard bar fare, like burgers are fries, are very fresh here. Delicious beer!

If you like garlic, the garlic burger at DB is a must to try. Just stand away from others afterwards. The beer is also a local favorite from Mirror Pond to Black Butte Porter and the atmosphere is great. Always busy so make a reservation or just go into the bar.

Deschutes Brewery Pub has wonderful hamburgers. The atmosphere is great and now they take reservations so be sure to make one otherwise you may not get a table. Be sure to try their beers.

Greatest Staff In Bend! I used to work here, so I am a little baised when I say that. I am talking about being baised when it comes to the food and drink. The staff, is just simply the best part of the pub. The logo, the history, and all else enrichs what a customer's experience is at Deschutes, but the staff IS the experience (if you take a seat at the bar, you'll see what I mean).

The brewmasters live and breathe the beer. Making a fine crafted, great tasting beer isn't rocket science... it's harder; ask any knowledgable beer connoisseur (if you can find one. And I'm not talking about beer geeks- people who try lots of different beers and throw lingo around to sound informed). The brewmasters there take everything into consideration... I am talking about what stage of growth and season the hop was harversted, to the level of heat used to kiln the ingredients. These guys are the sole reason why the Northwest is the mecca of craft beer. I could go on and on. Try the X-tap if want to see what I am talking about.

The lively crew in the kitchen is a skilled ensemble of savvy artists (Try anything on the specials menu to confirm that statement). For the size of the kitchen, food is prepared and sent out in a miraculous amount of time. Old pub favorites like the Spicy Mac and Garlic Burgers are always a good stand-by, safe and comforting to those who enjoy announcing that they'll "have the usual;" but there is such a selection of new and diverse items on the menu everyday, that even the pickiest eater should venture out and enjoy.

In short, if you want a really good experience... go to the pub and order a daily special and recommended beer pairing. If you want a great experience, go down, grab a seat at the L-bar and strike up a conversaiton with the door host. Ask the bar tender about the Yankies. Ask anyone about Mt. Bachelor. Enjoy the food, enjoy the drink, and most important, enjoy the company (staff and clientel alike).

Great for a brew pub. Check out the Black Butte Porter, if you dare. The veggie burger is also really good.

This is "The" brewery everyone wants to see when they come to Bend. While the flavor of their beers aren't outstanding in MY opinion, MANY MANY people will have no other beer but Deschutes. Most of their beers are too hoppy for my taste, and the darker beers (where I like to stay) lack the complex flavors I love to drink. The food at the restaurant is good by brew pub standards. Seasonal events are always packed and full of energy. I do recommend the FREE Brewery tour (off Colorado at their bottling/brewing plant) for a view of their state of the art brewing set-up and a full gamut of guided tasting in their Mountain Room.

This is our favorite Bend brewery. The service is always great. The food is always worth all the calories. And the Deschutes Brewery beer is always the way to go after our minimal attempt at excise.

Pros: service, location

Cons: sometimes the long wait for a table

I love the pub for what it is. No, its not a date spot. Not a place to bring stuffy in-laws. It's a warm, casual, cheerful sort of spot. The food is comfortable, nothing too fancy. You can pop in, by yourself, on any given night and are guaranteed to strike up a conversation with an interesting local or geeky tourist. As a female, I have sat many a night at the bar meeting cool people. And the bartenders aren't so bad themselves. In fact, they seem to have a sixth sense about when that barfly has come on to you long enough and casually step in to save you. And if you come in and sit at a table, ask to sit in Missy's section. This girl is so sweet and so cute. But she also knows her sh*t. Got a question about how a beer was made? She knows. Want to know a specific ingredient in a menu item? She knows. Need help deciding? No problem, she's got good suggestions. Want to know where to party after dinner? She'll clue you in on the hot night spots. Sorry guys, she's taken at the moment but she has made every one of my visits to "The Pub" memorable. Thanks Missy!

Pros: beers (of course), 7 layer dip, burgers

Cons: long wait on weekends (slip the door staff a twenty..trust me)

.

But if you are patient, the wait is worth the great beer and the food is pretty decent. If you are expecting peace and quiet, it's not the place for you (when it's packed). A really great place to take your out of town friends and guests that enjoy ales and beer.

Of course the great beer here is worth the visit, however the menu is lacking. It's to be expected of pub food, however Deschutes could have it made if the food was a bit more exciting!

Great beer! The food is very good and the menu has specials daily. I particularly like the fresh roasted salsa. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is good.

Possibly the standard all Brew Pubs should attain to! Crisp fresh salads, choice soups & of course the great burger to go with fine handcrated beers! Pleasant staff & good overall ambience. A great place!
