Tualatin >C I Bar & Grill
If I was a regular at any place, this
would have to be my lair... A short walk from my homestead, CI Bar has a solid breakfast, lunch, dinner, and beer. A nice place to grab beers with friends or watch sporting events on one of their 10 wide screens?
Anyhow, the late night staff is young, fun, and friendly and check their weekly schedule of good deals like free pool and cheep drinks.
My wife and I would give the food a 4
out of 5 and the live music (Conroy Debrie) a 6 out of 5! The food menu has vast, diverse selections which is what you would expect for a bar/grill. The price of the food is very reasonable as is the price of their drinks. The bartenders do not skimp on their pours either which is refreshing (pun intended)! The staff has always been above-average and the setting is what you would expect for a place like this.
Now for the real reason why everyone should go to CI's...the local band Conroy Debrie! My wife has been following them from their beginning and they continue to deliver amazing performances. The band is a class-act and really should be on a professional tour instead of playing at a bar. Dub is a one-of-a-kind musician who sings his heart and soul out every time my wife and I have seen him play.
Go to CI's for the band first and everything else (food, drinks and service) second...
The service is good and if you go enough it gets to be homey. The food is good to really good for this type of joint, coffee is hot and ready. The C&I has been around for over 80 years and has cleaned itself up nicely from the old smokey days, parking is ok. They have live music on Thursdays, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, take it from there. So bottom line, good food, nice people, get up and give it a try.
This is a great place to stop in listen to some live music once and a while..play some video poker or just relax and have a drink..The staff is nice and the drink are good!
We love Shannon Jennie Robbie, Patty/Laurel
Best enchiladas and egg breakfast anywhere!! Great service, very friendly.
This is one of my favorite places to
go! It's casual and low key and they have great food-espicially breakfast!
If you are looking for a low key place to meet friends for drinks or a place that you don't have to worry about what your wearing this might be your new favorite spot!!!!
I have been going to the C.I every week for over 2 years now. The food alone would give it a 5-star rating. The band (Conroy-DeBrie) alone would give it a 5 star. The combination of both in one venue keeps me coming back every week (usually 2 nights per week!) As far as the parking issues some have commented on, I have never seen anyone towed from the C.I. parking, but have heard a number of problems with parking on the Juan Colorado spots. Oh, and the service is always delightful, even when they are slammed with customers.
Every time I visit my family from out
of state I have to make a stop at the CI bar. It's not much to look at from the exterior-nor the interior for that matter-but it's a great place for a cold beer, generously liquored cocktails, and what I would say is better than average bar food. I highly recommend their salads (especially the fajita salad-beware that it is a ton food!)
I consider all of these to be "bonuses" to the biggest draw that this place has for me: the live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. It isn't the kind of music that I normally listen to (I'm 25, and admittedly not a huge audiophile) but the talent of the musicians at the CI lends timelessness and the possibility for cross-generational enjoyment and extreme entertainment.
