Pine Tavern Restaurant

The Pine Tavern has historical significance as Bend’s oldest restaurant and sits above lovely Mirror Pond of the Deschutes River, where ducks, Canadian geese and swans swim by.  The Pine Tavern is Bend’s very own institution – there’ll never be anything like this again – and preserving this space is of utmost importance to its owners.  The fact that it was built during The Great Depression and has withstood so many ups and downs of our economy speaks for itself. The restaurant was built in 1936 by two enterprising women who used the word “tavern” because it meant hospitality, and hospitality has been at the core of its success for over 70 years.  The restaurant has a 275-year-old Ponderosa pine tree that grows through the dining room roof, and an outdoor patio that provides some of the best ambience in this area. This is a place to create memories for guests of all ages, in a relaxed and lovely setting.
