Wining & Dining in Corvallis

WINING AND DINING IN CORVALLIS 2019

There will be no general banquet dinner this year, other than the wrestler’s dinner with John Platt, so people are free to spend Friday evening before the Country Club event, Saturday evening and any other free time as they choose.  Following are some ideas collected by the Small Events group:

 

SUGGESTED MEETUP VENUE (DOWNTOWN/RIVERFRONT)

Sky High Brewing & Pub

160 NW Jackson

http://skyhighbrewing.com

“Our pub with full kitchen is open for lunch and dinner at 11am daily!! Come enjoy world class beers and elevated pub fare in our 4-story renovated building with sunset views over Corvallis. Eat and drink heartily on our heated porch, indoor dining room, indoor/outdoor bar, Tap Room and rooftop (in season).”

The rooftop terrace is very large and might be a good place to start for happy hour and eventually dinner, as they have an extensive pub menu, as well as a good selection of beer and full bar.  It is close to the Riverfront Park in downtown Corvallis, and there are a number of other interesting restaurants within easy walking distance.
