In Central Oregon, there’s one thing we’re sure of, our food is just as good as our craft beer. Here on the High Desert, a night out can be as fancy, or family friendly as you like.

Our award winning chefs plate with precision, delivering big city taste in a small town setting. At 900 Wall, the intimate bar setting is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and some great company. Just a couple feet away, chefs prepare some of the finest food Central Oregon has to offer.
