The lessoned learned from the road is that to really enjoy a place, you need to eat local. The fare in Bend tends to lean towards pub grub. Deschutes Public House delivers the goods.
I know what’s you’re thinking. Bend is miles from the ocean. But that makes no difference because the oyster shooters were worth it.
This is a can’t miss appetizer called “Buffalo Shrimp”. Super hot and very nice. Watch out, though. The flavor will stay with you a while.
The only problem with this place is that I don’t live closer to it.
