Monteaux's Public House's extensive menus of classic American pub fare fused with global touches pull from seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible. The lunch menu preps palates with light salads such as the grilled-prawn salad ($12.50) or the cabernet-poached pear salad ($9.45) topped with sweet walnuts, goat cheese, and a supernova in the sky's worth of creamy champagne vinaigrette. Main lunch courses include house favorites such as the parmesan-crusted tilapia ($13.50) and the chicken schnitzel ($13), which, like several dishes at Monteaux's, can be made gluten-free upon request. For dinner, appease initial appetites with a hummus plate starter ($7.50) before stomach-surfing toward top sirloin steak with tarragon butter ($17.25), Mongolian beef stir fry with yellow and green onions and Hoisin sauce ($12.45), or a Guinness-marinated burger topped with smoked-gouda cheese ($9.50). Monteaux's menu is also peppered with monthly "country specials" featuring creative takes on world cuisine, as if they came straight from the kitchens of Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon. May's country specials showcase traditional Turkish tastes, including classic baba ghanoush with cucumbers, tomatoes, and grilled pita bread ($8.25) and shish kebabs with marinated lamb and vegetables ($14.25).
Independently owned and operated for 10 years, Monteaux's Public House prides itself on being a healthy and homey hotspot for friends and families looking to share meals, memories, and shark-attack-related scar stories. Round up your best buddies and a bottle of wine to re-enact Monteaux's mural, or treat your cuddliest companion to some site-sniffing excitement on Monteaux's dog-friendly patio, provided that you both pass an obedience test.

- I think calling it simply "American" does it an injustice since the choices are much more appealing than the meat-and-potatoes image that phrase conjures. – jmtt, Citysearch
- We ate the Mediterranean halibut and the stuffed salmon. Both were extremely delicious! The halibut was melt in your mouth good. We also had the pierogi appetizer and it was to die for. – bethydomin, TripAdvisor
- We've been regulars at Monteaux's since they opened almost 10 years ago, and we've never had a disappointing experience there. The food has always been consistently great and we look forward to the new country specials each month. – Debbie, Urbanspoon

About Monteaux's Public House
A historic mural spreads across a wall inside Monteaux's Public House. A visual interpretation of Oregon history from the early 1800s to the late 20th century, the hand-painted work depicts trolleys and buildings, local farm culture, and travel by railroad and balloon. The mural itself has been there for more than a decade: it marks one of the first steps the four founders took to decorate their restaurant, an ode to the centuries-old tradition of the American public house.
Monteaux's Public House also preserves culinary traditions by preparing good old-fashioned food and folding napkins into the shape of Benjamin Franklin's hungry face. The menu features meals both American and foreign, but everything's made from seasonal, local ingredients when possible. Entrees of marinated flat iron steak and wild salmon fillet join house specialties such as Cajun prawn étoufée and halibut fish and chips. The bar's taps, meanwhile, pour several rotating Oregon beers. And whether dining inside or on the dog-friendly patio, visitors can utilize the pub's WiFi.
