Foursquare Tips

  • Put your trust in Patrick for a craft beverage
  • Let me tell ya something... Just go here. You're going to love it.
  • All the drinks in the bar are pre-prohibition era recipes. Very interesting.
  • On the way back to Portland, veer off at McMinnville and drop in at Thistle. Chef Eric Bechard sources everything local and his preparations are divine.
  • Be at the mercy of Chef Eric at the bar. He will not steer you wrong!
  • Snap a picture of Thistles blackboard menu before its too late! With daily changes, its never the same twice.
  • i think the bread and fat maybe a bit overrated, the truffle in the butter is such a basic dish, not sure if i would like to spread that on oven warm bread. instead, get the pork rillettes.
  • It's a splurge but well worth it if nuance and high-quality intrigues your palette. Locally sourced ingredients. Call for reservations outside of off-season (winter).
  • Try the Boulevardier - a bourbon Negroni - from the bar.
  • Ask for a cocktail pairing with oysters. You won't be disappointed.
  • Stopped in for a couple cocktails and a bite with the ladyfriend. Patrick is a magician with the drinks, easily among the best I've had anywhere, and without the pretension of big city craft bars.
  • Absolutely AMAZING!!! My hubs & I cannot agree on food & are super picky eaters-after reading about thistle online, we decided to go w the chefs whim w the only restriction being meat-OMG fave in OR!
  • Love love love every bit if this hidden treasure.
  • Get the rabbit rillettes. The bread and fat is also a must.
  • If he duck egg appetizer is on the chalkboard, get it. And bread and fat is a must. Tasty, crusty, warm French bread.
  • Try the 2011 Dominio IV Still Life Viognier with the oysters!
  • A-ma-zing! Local, amazing, and give a nice wink to the bartender, he's a doll!
  • Make sure Emily takes care of you
  • Not an arcade, but some damn good local food & wine. Everything sourced within 30 miles.
  • The bar tender is the hostess, so if you catch her making drinks...don't plan on being seated right away.
