The North Bend Bar & Grill in downtown North Bend is an informal gathering place ideal for after work, hiking, or skiing.
The restaurant is divided in two with the bar closest to the street and the dining room near the back by the old railroad tracks. (They're rarely in use as only a tourist train runs on them now.) Decor is sort of rustic and fitting for North Bend.
The food is your standard pub food, but caters to modern tastes as well with a few vegetarian dishes. Their best meals are the old stand-bys: burgers and sandwiches.
They have a decent selection of beer and wine, but no hard liquor.
Parking can be tight in the lot outside, but the street parking is free.
