Do not go to Bend and miss the Pine Tavern. This is a great restaurant with a patio area that sits right on the banks of the Deschutes River. It gets its name from the fact that there is a pine tree growing right through the center of the dining room.
They serve what can best be described as hearty fare. The weird thing is that despite the heat, the portions didn’t completely zap our energy.
A walk on the river after dinner goes hand in hand with this place.
