A great place to watch the "Civil War" Oregon State vs. University of Oregon rival football game! Another great destination just a short walk away.

Go for the soaking pool, the movie theater, the music, the atmosphere, the beer. The food is not great and personally I cannot recommend the food, but everything else is fantastic!

One of my favorite stories springs from the opening weeks of this funky bar(s)hotel, public movie theater and public soaking pool, all created over the former structures of the St Francis Catholic school that occupied this spot for so many decades.A friend and her husband emerged from their hotel room, a converted classroom to announce to my wife and I that she had recently spent the night with her husband in what had been her third grade classroom, and that she would be needing therapy very soon. This is a really really fun place over and above being part of the successful McMenamins brothers chain of brew pubs.
Food ok, beer good, ambiance, great!

The most fun to have at McMenamins, is to see a movie on the big screen that is not out in Video yet. Can walk there from our cottage, and if you like an occasional cigar, the ambience of the cigar bar outside patio is really fun, even for non smokers like myself.

LOTS of history and character...Not the best food or beer in town, but worth visiting. If you like the other McMenamins, you'll love it.

Love the huge fires they have at night and the Champagne Sunday Brunch. Get a cigar and some whiskey and sit outside at night or soak in the soaking pool, watch a movie siting on couches in the theater while eating and drinking your favorite local adult beverage.

McMenamins offers something for everyone from bars, a theater and their not-to-be-missed on a cold day-soaking pool.

I don't eat here, but what I *LOVE* is their Roman Bath. For $5, you get a locker, and a pass into their giant hot tub and enjoy some great McMenamins beer while you're at it. Family time until 7pm--after that it's 21 and over.
