Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.
Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.
The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.
But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.
Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.
Anthony's is a Pacific Northwest-based seafood chain serving local catches plus regional wines and beer at the Old Mill. The best deal at happy hour are the $6.50 libations; the House Manhattan will have you happy in no time. The best of season "spiked" lemonade is cranberry until spring.
The fun foods are sized for the occasion; we dug the spiciness of the boneless buttermilk fried buffalo chicken wings with Sriracha-lime glaze. It was nice that the chargrilled burger came with fries, even if they were just a handful.
If you're gluten-free, order the Puget Sound mussels and fries or the cowboy caviar dip with shrimp and avocado. The choices of draft beer were primarily from Bend and wines by the glass were all from Oregon or Washington. The ambiance is very chill, the seating plenty and many seats have views of the river for easy people watching.
