Hunter Creek Bar & Grill is a local’s hangout that everyone feels welcome in. Great food, 10 TVs and a beautiful deck overlooking Hunter Creek. There’s also a pool table, Oregon Lottery and Video Poker machines and a card table with Blackjack and Texas Hold Em’ on select nights. No minors permitted.
Local Delicious WateringHole
Good food. Friday steak nights are my favorite. Right now, I eat here 3-4 times a week. (It’s on the way home.) Staff is friendly, fun and make the entire place a truly wonderful experience. Plus, the local brewery is served there, too.
Good value for money. Open late.
This is a place that serves standard bar food and is good value for money and is open at a time when other places in the town are not. Friendly staff. As with many towns in the area there aren't many places offering food in the evening -- even the posh places seemed to close around 8. So if you are driving through late in the day and wanted something to eat and drink then this is one of the few options. The food is pretty good standard bar fare ( though adding cumin as a seasoning to the fish tacos was a novelty that didn't quite work for me) Definitely good value for money... and the people who work there are friendly. So -- lots of pluses. It is a bar that has lots of loyal local customers who sit at the bar and chat.. (as I say it's a friendly place) ....That can sometimes take the attention of the server away from the tables. So if you are in a hurry or just tired and want to eat and run you may well need to get up and ask for stuff. It is a bar -- so TVs and rock music (no kids/pets). I know all bars have loud music but I'm not sure who wants that. I do try and sit outside when possible to avoid that. This bar has a small deck with a great view of a lovely river. When we went the smokers were there so we went back inside. .. but the deck is definitely another one of the pluses to the place. I thought one downside is that the kitchen area is right next to the bar... so there is a bit of a sense of being too close to the cooking... Short of moving the kitchen into an extension maybe a glass screen between the kitchen and the bar to give it a greater sense of separation? I've given it 3 stars... that's a bit on the low side. 4 just seemed a bit high.
Good food and prices don’t outweigh rude and painfully slow service
I would like to give this place a higher rating for the good food and very low price, but there were too many negatives. First, since they have outdoor seating, I called to see if dogs were allowed in the outdoor seating area. A simple no would have been an acceptable answer. Instead the rudely stated reply was “dogs aren’t allowed anywhere in the area”. I should have learned, but still decided to go there for dinner because the place has received good reviews and the food choices were what we were looking for. When we arrived we were quickly seated and our drink orders taken. When the drinks were delivered, the waitress rudely pushed us to make our food choices even though we had just gotten the menu. We ordered an appetizer along with our food choices expecting to get it to enjoy with our drinks while waiting for our food. After an hour we still didn’t have our food or the appetizer. Also, the waitress never came by to apologize for the delay. After another 15 minutes, the food and appetizer finally arrived without an apology for the delay. Like I said, the food was good, not exceptional, and the price was very reasonable, but it doesn’t overcome the rudeness and excruciatingly slow service, so I can’t recommend this place.
Best fish and chips ever!!!
Best fish n chips!!! Great service, friendly and food is delicious!!! Don’t miss out! Doesn’t look like much of a place it’s what I would call a hole in the wall. But don’t let this dissuade you from going. You will not be disappointed. Definitely a place for local people hang out.
Great Local place for Food and Drinks.
This is definitely a place to go. They were open on Christmas day, and all of the staff were in GREAT spirits. We ordered the Fish and Chips, and the TavMelt on Texas toast. I loved the fries. It was packed, but everyone was very courteous. The view of the river was a nice touch also.
