I stopped in for lunch and a beer on the way to Portland, from Idaho. Skipped the tour and went to the pub and tasting room.
Arrived mid afternoon on a Saturday, it was very crowded and I could not get one of the cherished window seats for a view of the gorge. The indoor are was medium sized, nothing special about the decor, it was more sports bar than brew pub. Nice outdoor seating area on a concrete patio with a few umbrella tables.
Beer selection offered the Full Sail main stays and a few pub exclusives. Food menu was pub average, with some nice appetizers, limited number of sandwiches and salads. The pub burger was very good.
Service was good, nothing spectacular you had to drag information from the server. She could have been a little more talkative and offer some suggestions. Not sure of her beer knowledge other than "yeah thats a good beer".
Overall it was a good experience, enjoyed a couple of good beers and had a nice lunch.

I stopped for a beer at the Full Sail Brewery and Tasting Room while traveling to Portland. It was rainy Friday afternoon.
It's a production brewery located on a hill overlooking the Columbia River. We skipped the tour and made our way to the pub in the back. It's a small but nice place with huge picture windows. Tall tables and bar space, and of course the brewery memorabilia on sale.
Service was good. We were just having a couple of beers, and grabbing a few hard to find bottles to go.
Selection is limited to Ful Sail brews, but they did have a couple of limited releases that will not be bottled. I had a limited release IPA.
Value was good. Under $$4 for the pints, and bottles at less than grocery store prices.
I'd love to stop and spend some more time at this place, especially on a nice day.

We have visited this oregon staple a few times over the last year. As one of oregons founders, leaders, and innovators of craft beer its nice to see that they dont have a very high end thought of themselves like some other brewery's.
A huge warehouse building near downtown, sprawling over a few blocks, its quite the sight. Entering the brewpub itself down a wavy hallway, its very inviting, open and has a great view of the river.
Service has always been friendly, very knowledgable, and helpful. Food is pretty good, a bit higher end for the area I would say, but still rather inexpensive and delicious. Beers seem to be the regular lineups, with a few seasonals, and one of's. I wish they would have more than just the regulars, I love to go to a well established company and try beer that is not well established at all, but having a pint of even something classic where its brewed is still great.
The tour is really where this place shines, one of the best we have been on. Very knowledgable, able to answer questions, and you even get a free pint glass at the end! We've been on it twice, once was a day when the plant wasnt really operating, the second they were in full production. Unlike many other brewery tours you get to be right beside everything, right in the middle of the action versus walking on high balconies just watching.
Wonderful place overall, wish it was closer so we could visit more often.

Stopped by for a late lunch on 8-9-10 after enjoying a late morning/early afternoon enjoying the waterfalls off of the Columbia River Gorge scenic highway.
The overall atmoshpere was good, you walk past the fermentors and a substantial giftshop on the way to the Pub. We chose to sit outside which afforded a spectacular view of the Gorge, unfortunately I-84 was a detraction as it sits between the Pub and Gorge.
Quality was good all the way around. Ample room in the Pub itself, looked to be very inviting to hang out when the weather was not as spectacular.
Service was good, our server was knowledgable about the beer and was timely despite being farily busy at the beginning of happy hour.
Selection of beer was good, approximately 8-10 beers to choose from.
Food was very good, I had the fish and chips which was good but a bit pricey at $15. Da Boss had the Fish Tacos which were very good.
The overall experience was good, glad we continued down the highway to experience one of our tailgate beer staples. Would recommend if you are traveling to Portland.

First off, this place has just an awesome view of the Gorge. The lead in from a brewery tour is an awesome transition. There is an abundance of merchandise and beer to buy. The staff is friendly and the service is good.
There was a decent selection of beer on tap when I visited. Session Black had just been released. Out of the taster tray I had nothing let me down. Even the standard Amber was spot on.
Met a group of friends here who were headed home for a concert. We had a great time and tried just about everything on tap after a brewery tour which was top notch. Tons of detail and impressive bottling line and warehouse!

Swung by with a bud yesterday for a tour, and a customer at work told me their burgers were hella good.. so already knowing they make my favorite go-to beers... I had to finally make the drive...
- Nice "in-brewery" pub... set way back so a view of the Gorge can be seen... I sat at the bar... which I must say was very basic, and functional. I loved seeing the drainage pipes from the taps in painted black pvc above the glasses...
- Quality is Full Sails best trait. The food? I loved how simple the burger was... but yet the beef stood out that much more. Top notch meat... and actually hard to come by even in the ground beer world. I started w/ a small glass of Spotless IPA with my meal... took the awesome tour w/ Randy.. and then came back for a pint of their pale (which is a favorite) which I actually don't think I have ever had on tap.
- Not very chipper attitudes... but better than most bars these days... I wonder if to be a bar tender you must be addicted to opiates... man... but hey.
- Food was great, and my bud loved their steak sandwhich... which he added cheddar to... for me the beef quality was seriously top-notch... the rest?.. typical pub food.. which isn't a bad thing. I find food in pubs to be better than a lot of big establishments.
Great beer prices as always, and seriously decent food prices... all around great drive, and worth the tour. I love Full Sail for their down home atmosphere and work ethic. It's nice to see a reminder of what I love so much about Oregon, Portland... and just good work and friends.

I visited this place on 3/23/2010.
This pub is basically a medium sized space carved from the corner of the Full Sail brewery in Hood River. Despite that, the atmosphere was pretty good.
The beers were plentiful and for the most part very good. I can't get Full Sail back in Illinois, so they were mostly all new to me. Had a sampler plus a few pints. The hoppy beers were decent but nothing over the top. The session lagers and the malty beers were generally better, with the RIS standing out as the best of the night.
Service was friendly and prices ranged from surprisingly low to medium.
The food was also quite good. I had the fish sandwich and it rocked.
All in all a don't miss spot if you are anywhere near Hood River.

Made a trek to check out the Full Sail brewery in Hood River, only an hour or so from Portland. The tap room is nice with hardwood floors and brass fixtures and an awesome view of the Columbia River.
Beer selection was good they had the standard Full Sail brews as well as Wreck the Hall, Wassial and a Holiday blend Wassial. Staff new there stuff about the beers the were serving, just not very friendly in my opinion.
Food was excellent. They had burgers, seafood, some light italian and mexican, as well as fried foods and sandwiches.
They also had 22s and growlers to go at reasonable prices.
If you are a NW beer drinker worth the trip to see one of the original Oregon brewers places.

Whenever I'm in the area, I look for an opportunity to visit the Hood River pub. I try to get a table at the window overlooking the Columbia river and the gorge walls on the Washington side. It's a nice but not spectacular view since the brewery and other commercial building are between the pub and the river.
The room is of moderate size and always looks clean and well kept. The bar is functional but not flashy.
The food is good and I typically will get the Full Sail Burger or the Tempeh Veggie Burger.
The host/hostess, bartenders and waitstaff have always been as friendly as can be. Big thumbs up for them.
I've reviewed their beers elsewhere but suffice it to say, I'm always pleased with the seasonal selections and the mainstays.
Great beer, good food, good view and a killer staff make this a fun stop. Wish I could get their beers in my homestate of Pennsylvania.

Stopped in for lunch while visiting Hood River. The atmosphere is not too unique - more of a sports bar vibe, but nothing that really detracted from the experience. I was there right after hop harvest, so they had a couple of their fresh hop ales on draft - I tried both, and while they were both good, neither really super-impressed me. But they have a pretty wide selection of their beers on draft - which I could've tried more. The food was pretty average - I had a chicken quesadilla. Service was on-point - the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers served - and let me try a few samples. It was nice that they have a pretty good bottle selection available to go.
