McMenamins – North Bank
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

This comfy, wood-built pub is an ideal place to sip a beer on a sunny day — or a rainy one. Overlooking one of the most serene stretches of the Willamette River, the North Bank's tiered inside seating and outside deck provide a panoramic river view, hard to find in pubs in Eugene, pairing perfectly with a cool pint.
Originally built as the North Bank Restaurant in 1979, this point in the Willamette River was chosen 150 years ago for a crossing known as Skinner's Ferry. Our location provides a great spot to watch televised games — or turn your head away from the tube and watch the leaves falling on the river as boaters and bikers pass by.
