Excellent bar, great tap beer, and one of the most beautiful bars in Oregon.. Not a diner place, unless you love bar food (bar food is on the upper end of the food chain).

Wandered in on a cross country road trip and found a great place to catch a game! Shontel (my bartender) was one of the most upbeat, attentive, and positive servers I have ever had! She killed it in every regard! Thanks Shontel! Have a good one!

Had the salmon gyro after driving back from a day at the roundup. Fabulous! Located right downtown with covered parking available.

Most of you already expect this, but Happy hour food may take a while. The drinks are always on target and the food is hit and miss. Sometimes I can't believe how great and then I wonder what salsa in a jar could be this bland. I't won't stop me from enjoying the company and very kind staff. I have... More

Excellent selection of local craft brews on tap. Good pub food and an interesting atmosphere (great bar - woodwork and mirror). Sports on TVs everywhere (not my favorite). Good wait staff.

Nice atmosphere and lots of TV's so you're able to catch a game from almost any table. Rustic bar area is nicely done with comfy seats and plenty of drinking choices.

My daughter and I chose Benchwarmers for a light dinner. We each chose the Philly Cheese sandwich. I had a salad and she had the beer battered fries. The sandwiches were very good. My salad was fresh and the fries were delicious. Our meals were paired with impotence beers. The waitress was very friendly and personable. The old school tavern... More

This place pours a good (not strong enough for me) cocktail. They have a good selection of beers on tap. The bartender talks to the ladies and ignores male patrons. I find the egos of the locals funny. But then again, it may be their "big fish in a micro puddle" attitude

I stopped in at "Benchy's" with Friends from La Grande. I liked the People and Staff that i talked to. The Jameson's and iced Tea were Excellent. However the Fish & Chips reminded Me of something from a Grade School Cafeteria. Maybe They could have found some shaped like Fish. I would have no problem trying the Pub again but... More
