Part of the McMenamins chain, Dad Watson's channels the same, safe atmosphere as the rest of the chain. There is outdoor seating in summer which is really nice though the area could be bigger. The beer on tap is pretty good and very refreshing and the food served is the usual bar food-lots of sandwiches, fried food, etc. Service is not as great as it could be-indifferent would be the best word to describe it. They do have a small selection of board games for customers to use. Because I enjoy the beer here I will give it three stars though it really deserves two.
