“It’s a sports bar with great food,” Brandon Norbury, owner of the Mt. Angel Public House, said when
asked to describe the eatery which, though it quietly opened its doors to patrons during Oktoberfest in September, finally held its official opening on Dec. 19.

“And it was phenomenal,” Norbury said of the celebration, which included live music, a presentation by the Flywheels Car Club, a tap takeover by the Tualatin-based G-Man Brewery and amazing food courtesy of Mt. Angel Public House’s own head chef, Andres Goyer.

“It’s been great,” Goyer said. Referring not only to the success of that night but of the weeks since. “We’ve been really well received.”

So much so that Goyer, commonly found serving customers at the front of the house, has already become familiar with the names of the Public House’s regular customers. 

“And we’ve grown to have friends here now, which is pretty cool,” Norbury said. 

Open for lunch at noon seven days a week and with dinner hours extending until 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, the Mt. Angel Public House welcomes any and all clientele but caters first and foremost to sports fans, with nine televisions strategically placed for the best viewing opportunities and broadcasting packages that allow customers to watch most sporting events.

“It’s a good atmosphere,” Norbury said, referring not only to the large, open seating plan but also to the bar’s decorations, which will soon include sports memorabilia from nearby Kennedy High School. 

“We don’t want to put just things on the wall, but things people care about,” Goyer said of the decision to customize the décor. “Because there’s something to not just being a part of the town but a part of the community.”
