This is a combo brewpub within a sport bar. The beers include Saison, Wee, Hefe, Honey, Red, IPA, Smoked Porter, Oatmeal Stout, Amber & a Light. I found the beers to be ok. I tried the IPA, Smoked Porter and Stout. The IPA was good, but the Smoked Porter was overwhelmed with smokiness and the stout was thin.

The menu is burgers, brats, pizzas, etc. There are numerous TVs and at least one pool table. A chalkboard advertised live music on weekends.

The real attraction here is a outdoor deck and a killer view overlooking the Columbia River. I wasn’t particularly fond of the beers that I tried, but it’s worth a visit just to sit on the deck and chill for a bit.

This place has one thing going for it: Where else are you going to go?

They had 8 or 9 beers on tap. We tried two tasters and two pints, but I can't even remember what we had because it was so underwhelming. What we tried wasn't outright bad, but it wasn't something that I'd pay $4 for, like the menu said I was going to.

The atmosphere consisted of 70% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, about 10% of other trace gases. Nothing else of note except while I was breathing it in, the locale made me think simply: "Well... I've been to worse places before"

The service was fairly efficient in an assembly-line kind of way and not unfriendly.

The food came out so fast I though it must have been made on an assembly line as well, and it seemed to have the craftsmanship you'd expect from that. While not exactly bad, it certainly wasn't endearing. We had finished our food well before I was finished with my first pint and, not wanting to hang around for the privilege to drop $4 for another iffy beer, we asked for the check.

I was quite surprised to find they had charged us an unadvertised happy our price of $1.25 per pint. That actually seemed reasonable! It was too bad. If they had told me the beers were only that much I would have at least tried something else in the hope of finding something good. I've payed a lot more than $1.25 for much WORSE beer in some swanky joints.

So I guess that means there's two things going for Rattlesnake Mountain Brewing Company.

This was hit while on a a trip up to Glacier National Park and we had a great time here. It was hot and the outside seating over the river was great. They had 9 taps and the beer was pretty good. The IPA was the best as for the others they needed some work. The food regular pub fair so it was very good for a snack. I have been here a few times since then and they seem to have changed owners and the theme is ore sports so watch out the crowds get busy on fight night and football nights also.

This place is in a great spot right on the river and right next to Columbia Park, though it’s not apparent as you travel through generic strip mall country before you arrive. The space is quite large with concrete floors, wooden tables and chairs, and lots of light from the windows. There are several fermenters in the restaurant area and the brewery itself is behind the bar section. The brewery is partially closed off from the main room by windows that don’t reach the ceiling. The place definitely has a sports bar theme. The bar area is enclosed by boxing ring-style ropes and there’s a huge pair of boxing gloves on one post. The bar itself is a square horseshoe shape with a dark wooden bar top. There are two pool tables in the back alongside the brewery along with 2 dart boards even farther back and there are several TVs scattered throughout, all tuned into various sports.

There is also a nice outdoor deck with quite a few tables equipped with umbrellas. It’s a long and fairly narrow space that overlooks the road that runs along the river. The wooden railing on the river side has a built-in bench along its length.

The beer selection (8 regular beers) is good for a brewpub and is a wider range than usual (when we were there: Helluva Hefe, Saison, Honey Red Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Smokey Porter, Helluva Honey, and Rattlesnake IPA). Oddly, it’s hard to notice that these are Rattlesnake Mountain beers as almost all of the signs, menus, etc. just refer to Kimo’s Sports Bar.

This is a stop that I made on my pilgrimage to Terminal Gravity brewpub in Enterprise Oregon. This place is definitely forgettable, unless you are really anxious to view a sporting event that you can't see anywhere else. The beer sampler was generous, however, not a one stood out for me.
I did not taste the food so I cannot comment on that.
The beer selection is reflective of a lot of choices; but it does not reflect their lack of flavor.

Another stop on an E. Washington beer run, this modern brewpub sits in a huge parking lot a mile off Highway 240 and overlooks the Columbia River. View is excellent from the patio seating area, although not a beer "garden."
THis is a HUGE brewpub w/big screen TV's everywhere & music on so on a Saturday night, I'm sure it would very difficult to have a conversation. We were there at lunchtime on a Saturday - there were 2 other people inside, 4 outdoors. I like a place that provides a sense of community and when your establishment gets this big, that aspect of a pub is the first to go. The beer is usually next.
The bar is surrounded by ropes as though you're seated inside a boxing ring. The menu has typical brewpub fare (burgers, nachos, etc.) but also offers some interesting choices; coconut banana salad, various wraps, BBQ pork sandwich & different dinner entrees.
9 beers were on tap - most I found forgettable. The bartender Cindy told us the Saison was favored by women...a light copper-colored Belgium Wit seasoned w/coriander & orange peel that, to me, tasted like an orange kool-aid. The Rattlesnake IPA was not as offensive & bitter as most, quite drinkable...as was the Grand Amber. But I'd stay away from both the Smokey Porter & Oatmeal Stout...neither had any taste whatsoever.
No need to revisit Kimo's Rattlesnake Brewery when the Atomic Alehouse is 5 miles down the road.
