Our Sunriver Pub opened July 4th, 2012 and has since offered pub fare with a twist. The menu speaks for itself. Where else are you going to find grilled steelhead, IPA-battered Portobello mushroom fries or fried avocado in addition to the best burgers, fish and chips and salads around? Our wood fired smoker staged at our beer production facility is pumping out some of the best smoked meats in the region. Our chef Nick Felschow, a La Cordon Bleu Western Culinary Institute graduate, makes his own stocks, sauces and dressings from scratch. We also bake our awesome beer pretzels, calzones and buns daily.
We have never had a disappointing meal, and today was no exception. We started with the pretzel with cheese dip. It was big and delicious, with plenty of gooey white cheese and mustard for dipping. The pub burger, sockeye salmon sandwich and pretzel Reuben are among our favorites. My kids love the Mac & cheese.
The service is always good!

We came for the ice cream cones and weren't disappointed. Many flavors to choose from daily. Caramel corn, old fashioned candies and sodas for sale.

Brewed Awakenings is a very inviting, comfortable coffee shop. Since we don't drink coffee, its a wonderful tea shop! The additional items for breakfast or a light lunch are yummy as well. The atmosphere is so relaxing. They even have a drive thru. Its right across from Starbucks, which you can get at home. That's why Brewed Awakenings is so special.

Since we arrived to Sunriver, we have heard multiple people talking about this bakery called Hot Lava. It's the only bakery in Sunriver so our hopes were high! My husband and I brought in our 3 children and the line wasn't long at all for spring break. The employees that were there immediately greeted us and asked us friendly questions, we felt so welcomed in that little bakery. At first we ordered our doughnuts and the kids loved them, they were a little too sweet for me, but I got a savory muffin that was lemon rosemary with a strawberry filling!!! The most delicious muffin I've ever had! The coffee was 100% better then Starbucks and that other coffee shop there. My family and I will most definitely be returning today to get some of their lunch sandwiches.

A Portuguese-themed restaurant. We hit for breakfast and were not disappointed. My wife had an egg dish, which was excellent. My daughter, the pancakes - which also were great. My son and I opted for the pastries + fruit. The fruit was freshly prepared and ripe. And the pastries... hard to leave without trying them all. Great place for breakfast!

Rustic farm-to-table Pacific Northwest cuisine served in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere by our warm and professional staff. Please see our website for the most current menu.
The food is excellent. We shared a great pate, duck and salmon as well as a very good pasta. Most people opted for the large deck but we preferred inside. The service was uneven as it is in most resort areas. If you are a “foodie” this is your best spot south of Bend. Our third visit to this restaurant and will go again.

Typical Starbucks menu, good services and open early before most of the other businesses. No drive thru but lots of parking around the store.

This family-run, family-friendly restaurant features fireside dining, an outdoor patio, and a beautiful, cozy lounge. Our extensive menu is always prepared fresh, to order, and dietary restrictions are easily accommodated. Many options are available for private parties and corporate events. We offer take-out, a children's menu, off-site catering, and many nightly specials.
Had a big group here and all seemed pleased. Lots of selections to fit every taste. Huge wine list, many European ones but had hoped they featured more locals.

Had a delicious mushroom cheeseburger for lunch. Very flavorful and juicy. Came with crispy French fries that complimented the burger.
After lunch we walked the paved Deschutes River trail South of the horse stables. Park your vehicle at the stables and follow the trail North or South.
The Village Bar and Grill has a large outside deck that overlooks the shopping mall. Great place to dine in the summer months.

Our server Francisco was excellent. He was extremely attentive and super nice. We had the omelette and breakfast sandwich. Both were tasty and perfectly made.
If you are Gluten Free they have pancakes for you. The Bloody Marys were out of this world.
A must if you are in Sunriver. Lots of options.
The views are out of this world.
