Restaurant Review: Gubanc's Pub in Lake Oswego

Consistent value sums up Gubanc’s, with good food, good prices, and professional servers

I drove past Gubanc’s 200+ times and never noticed it until a friend picked it for dinner about 10 years ago. It just blends into the other places along Lower Boone’s Ferry Road in Lake Grove. Consistency applies to the décor, too, which is a time capsule for 1970s Oregon: wood, smoked glass and ferns. Generally, the clientele is over age 40, too, and Gubanc’s is always busy for lunch and dinner.

The food is satisfying. Gubanc’s menu retains customer favorites, plus it offers a daily menu for something seasonal or new. The menu is pretty comprehensive, with fish, meat, poultry, soups. . . , and everything just fine. You will not rave to your friends about the artistry of presentation or a creative mélange of unique flavors, but the food always tastes fresh and is well prepared. I’ve never had a bad meal there in over 20 visits.

We go to Gubanc’s when we to relax and talk over our day, not for a special night out. If you want a good meal and if your dining companion is all the entertainment you want, then Gubanc's might be for you.
