Good little place

Despite its small size this is a nice little place for those of us in the area (IE me. I have never received bad service, and the drinks were always well made. See you soon!

Glad you came in for a re-visit. I would like to extend an invitation to our soup cookoff, its Sunday, the 21st. Starts around one and is a lot of fun. Or come by and try one of our daily specials that are homey, and economical. Thanks for the second chance.

So I made a trip into Carmichaels last week and I'll just say it seems much better than I last rememeber. I didnt eat but the bartender fixed me some strong drinks and the people were friendly. I do like that since the smoking ban you can actually breathe in there for a change. I didn't try any food but with the amount of booze I drank, I would have eaten anything if I stayed much longer. So I'll give it a thumbs up if you want to get your drink on.

Lay off w/ the attitude

...because I was a fairly regular customer there for almost 10 years until I moved! And I find that people DO NOT change very much Shanon, including their sanitation habits. Since I only live 2 hours away... I'm going to make a trip in there in the next few weeks and will review it accordingly, then you can write something even more patronizing and condescending towards me. But I will be fair...if it's cleaned up I will say so. Happy now?

Make some sense, Bikerguy

So, why are you writing a review about a bar you haven't even been to in over a year?

reply to Jinx & Diane

To Jinx: I lived in Tigard for over 15 years and I also lived behind the Pub at one point. Now, I haven't lived in Tigard or gone to Carmichaels in over a year but I have EXTENSIVE bar time in all the bars around. It is true what you said about some of the more "seedy" bars like Feelgoods, Home Turf, Rodneys, Hi-Hat and Manilla Express but Carmichaels falls right in line with them. When I say drunks, I don't mean drinkers. I am talking about slobbering drunks who can barely stand or formulate a sentence anymore. I could list many, many disturbing incidents that I personally witnessed but... anyways... I started going to Gators and to O'brians in King City, a little less drama for my taste at those places and the food is still bar food but WAY better! To Diane: You are a manager so of course you're going to promote your place, but I thought this was a website for CUSTOMER REVIEWS and I am a customer who wrote about my own personal experiences there...that's all! No need to slam ME personally for my opinion... I can see that type of attitude still hasn't changed there at Carmichaels. On the contrary to your post, I am not a negative, hate the world kind of guy. I have a beautiful wife, beautiful kids and a great career. I love life!! I was going to Carmichaels LONG before you ever started working there. I knew the old owners, Mike & Sue, and used to eat and drink there frequently. It is not the Mike & Sue Carmichaels I remember. You DO NOT have the best burger in town... that would fall to the Fanno Creek Pub. It is a little more pricier but you get what you pay for, a delicious quality burger! And their place has a much better ambiance and alot less drama. I am just one customer who saw what he saw, and my eyes don't lie to me!! Different people have different tastes and expectations of what/where they eat & drink. I like actual quality food and have been to some really tiny hole in the walls before that amazed me with the food...your place..haha! If you're right and you have gotten that place cleaned up, then I congratulate you and wish you the very best of luck in a very tough business. But I can not and can never personally recommend anyone set foot in there. Jinx is not correct...there are other places around!

Bike away then

People getting drunk in a bar? Imagine that! I thought people went to bars to do needlepoint and say their prayers. While I too hate how Tigard regulars act like they own the bars, if you act like an asshole at Carmichaels you will stand out like a sore thumb. Unlike the other places, I've never heard any complaints about the food until your review, ever. You must not hang out in Tigard much cuz if you've ever spent time in the other bars you'd never complain about this one. Never let the drunks run the bar. Feelgood's did and look how that worked out for them.

Carmichaels reply to bikerguy33

I am a manager at Carmicaels and would, of course, beg to differ with most of what Bikerguy 33 has to say about our great neighborhood bar. We are very popular and for good reason, we serve great food specials, daily, out of a clean kitchen. This review was obviously made by a very negitive person that is unhappy witht the world. By the way, Health department inspection reviews are posted on their wed site. Check out our scores. We do have the best burgers and town, and if you come by once, Ill remember your name, and maybe your drink as well.

utterly disgusting

This place is totally disgusting!! It's tiny and full of drunks. I haven't been in there in a little while but patrons just walk through the kitchen every once in awhile like they own the place. I once watched the owner and his girlfriend get into a huge fight in the place and started throwing things. The food is nasty and they live on the claim of best burger in town which was....when the previous owners ran the place a few years back... now it's gone to hell! I've seen the kitchen personally and it would make you vomit! Never eat a taco from this place...I'm warning you! Last time I was there they told me...after waiting ten minutes...that the stove was off because it was too hot in the kitchen, there were flies all over the place, and the bathroom smelled like puke. I would recommend passing by this place and finding something different.

Hi Jinx (derf)

We list places in the burbs as the information is sent to us, that's why we have such a random sampling from the surrounding outskirts.

You did just give me a nice list to Google and add.

This place got in Barfly??

Out of all the busier bars in Tigard, Carmichaels got in Barfly? Random. I used to live right behind this place and booze it up here all the time. I even won a chili cookoff here. They have cookoffs several times a year, and it's hilarious how intense it gets, especially since all the proceeds go to charity. The middle-aged lady whose husband finished second behind me actually threatened to kick my ass! It was awesome! Despite that, this is the only non-seedy place to drink in Tigard that side of the 217. They are known for their hamburgers and that 80% of their clientele are men over 50, who can be very entertaining drinking buddies. If seedy's your thing, try the nearby Manilla Express, Mixers, or Dr. Feelgood's. Don't bother with Home Turf, the place sucks, the clientele sucks, it smells like movie popcorn, and they 86'd me just because I told a rude regular that she was fat.
