Rudest treatment we've ever encountered
I have to admit in our state, the laws must be quite different. You can take kids into a bar and grill with no problem. The door might have had a notice posted that stated "no minors", but it was open and if there was one, we did not see it. As soon as we walked in with our grandsons, the bartender screamed. 'NO KIDS! NO KIDS! This IS a bar." Then came out from behind the counter and escorted me out. If you love every eye in the place on you and being embarrassed, then this is the place for you. We didn't. I think simply telling us kids were not allowed in a reasonable voice, might have left us with a less humiliating experience.
Incredible Ling Cod
Whatever you do, don't pass up Sportsman's when looking for a meal in Pacific City. I've never had better fish & chips, although I would recommend substituting onion rings for fries. Or at least substituting steak fries for the standard frozen style. Fresh off the boat ling cod panko coated and pan fried crispy good. Phenomenal. Yeah it's a local bar with local patrons but don't let that detour you.
Always a great meal
Very friendly staff, while in the area this time we stopped in twice. Just can't get enough of the fresh cod that comes right off one of the dory boats there. Tried the scallops on one visit and they were just as good as the fish, my other half did a seafood plate with several kinds of seafood, which he enjoyed but got the last bowl of onion soup and he raved about it. We always make this a stop when in the area.
A Real local's local
sporty's is a real local hangout...Not in a bad way...Best Fish and Chips we have had in a long time....Fresh cod in a very crispy batter...NO SYSCO here...Great place to have a brew, enjoy the Food...Outstanding for a pub !! Will definatly go back when in PC again.
We were on the road and needed something to eat. Upon the recommendation of our motel owner we chanced this place. Looked dodgy from the outside. But we loved it. The server, June Bug, was the best server we have had while on the road. She was warm, friendly, funny, efficient. And food was delicious. We had a bacon burger cooked perfectly with crisp bacon and the French dip. Fries and onion rings were great. Local color indeed with a pool table nearby and locals enjoying a night out. We loved it. So who needs fancy while on a road trip. We highly recommend this place.
