We love this place. It is old school, but the ambiance is everything. The off-beat signs on the wall, the buffalo head, rodeo star photos, all tourists must go here. It is the longest lasting spot for a tavern in Oregon, I am told.

Driving through town decided to try this place. First impression not great. Clientele at bar looked a little sketchy. But staff was friendly enough. Minors allowed in the back. Sat at the counter and watched our lunch being made. Decent food, large portions, VERY reasonable....More

We stopped in for a soda as we were half hour early to an appointment and say there for OVER ten minutes without a word. No service no service no hello. There was two customers there. We finally walked out. Will NOT return!

This is both a saloon, restaurant and a very fabulous breakfast spot. The walls are lined with the Cowboy winner of the Pendleton roundup for the last 106 years and other memorabilia.

Hi. To answer your question, yes they can. Kids can dine in the Rainbow anywhere past the pool tables until 4:30 PM. I hope this helps.
