Named the Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Bend by Gusto Magazine (2007), Scanlon’s is located in the Athletic Club of Bend but is open to the public. The friendly atmosphere works for anything from a family dinner to a romantic night out. For business meetings and birthday parties, the Fireside Room can fit up to 32 people. There’s an outside patio and you can even get complementary childcare while eating.
The Blacksmith is three establishments in one: a steak house, a lounge, and on weekends a dance club. Executive Chef Gavin McMichael creates new classics for the seasonally changing menu, such as lobster corndogs, “Not Your Mother’s Meatloaf,” and Northwest cheesesteak. He even coined a term for his style, “new ranch cuisine,” which he characterizes as American provincial. Bold and diverse tastes evoke the feel of the West. And The Blacksmith was recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the “top 66 new restaurants in the world.”
The Pine Tavern is both a favorite local landmark and restaurant. Diners love the warm hospitality and award-winning food of the cabin-like eatery, which was built in 1936 around a 250-year old ponderosa. Feast in the Riverside dining room or on the outdoor patio overlooking Mirror Pond. Or kick back in the full-service lounge with a microbrew or a Northwest wine. The Pine Tavern’s signature Northwest dinner menu is famous for its all-natural Oregon Country prime rib, flat-iron steak, sesame-ginger chicken bowls, and sourdough scones.
