Not much of a mention on this place on Chowhound, yet it seems to ring a lot of Chow bells

- late hours (12am)
- kid-friendly (kids meals served on a Rogue frisbee (to alert child protective services?)
- happy hour
- large beer selection
- draft root beer
- Adult happy meals (a toy is involed)
- dog-friendly ... they have a dog menu

What I've read elsewhere on the web is that the beer is great but the food so-so.

Yet ... the menu LOOKS interesting. There must be SOMETHING good on it

- Hummus made with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar Ale (well, maybe not)
- Thick cut beer battered onion rings
- Buffalo wings with Chipotle Ale hot sauce
- Nueske's bacon on a lot of stuff
- Rueben ... Corned beef simmered in Brutal Bitter beer with Shakespeare Stout sauerkraut
- Kobe beef sliders served on brioche with Wasabi mayonnaise.(ok that sounds wrong)
- Kobe hot dogs with that saurkraut ... not sure about the blue cheese dog though
- chocolate stout hot fudge sundae

Anyone tried the pots ... A rich thick stew with cream, wine and herbs, prepared individually in a steam pot ... yeah ... I need that.

So ... anyone?

Here's the menu in pdf form

kurobuta ham

      Somebody here has recommended the "Kobe" (Snake River Farms) burger.

        Us North Beachers are trying to keep it secret....

        It's hard to upstage Rogue's great beers with anybody's food, but there's certainly nothing wrong with the 1/2 lb. Kobe burger topped with Rogue Creamery Blue Cheese.

          The only (food) thing I had there was the burger, sometime last year. I liked it, although I didn't like it as much as I felt like I was supposed to, if you see what I mean. :) The patty gave me the impression of being machine-formed rather than hand-formed, but I couldn't swear to that -- it just had a suspiciously uniform shape, flatness, and density.

          I recall having a better meal at the Rogue in Portland, Oregon, but unfortunately I can't remember what I had there (it's been a few years). The beer, in either place, is definitely worth checking out, though.
