Jackalope’s Chef Tim — King of Sauces

“Ever since my first meal at the Jackalope Grill years ago, I’ve considered owner and chef Tim Garling as the area’s king of sauces. He just does them better than anyone else. My recent dinner at Jackalope confirmed that he has not relinquished his crown.”  (read more) Linden Gross writing in the May 2015 issue of Cascade Arts and Entertainment.

Palate Pleaser: Jackalope Grill – Global Flavor with Local Ingredients

“Eagerly, I stepped inside and was greeted by dim lighting, smooth jazz, and of course, the host. After taking my seat, I studied the menu. And with a list including everything from the Jaeger Schnitzel to one of the seasonal specials, I had my work cut out for me.” Read the entire review here.

 Jackalope Grill brings funky name, Parisian-trained chef to downtown Bend.

 “Garling features fresh local cuisine, a cliche these days, but he’s been cooking that way for a quarter century. You can stop by and get a drink in the bar, if you just want to peruse the menu and torture your mouth that won’t stop watering.”  Terry Richard writing in the Oregonian / OregonianLive.   Read the entire article here.

In Praise of the “New” Jackalope

Read the review by John Gottberg Anderson for The Bulletin.

“Great Food and Atmosphere. Its the place you go to feel like you’ve left Central Oregon. Every aspect of this place is fantastic. Love their desserts” From Google Maps March 25, 2010

“We went for my wife’s birthday dinner with three other couples. The modest location and exterior hides a great place to dine. Filet was tender and cooked to order, rack of lamb seemed to be the overall favorite. Service was excellent. We brought wine and paid a modest corkage fee, the wine list was extensive and seemed to be modestly priced. Highly recommend.” From Urban Spoon Jan. 17, 2010

Of all my “reviews”, none have the amount of positive comments that the Jackalope Grill has received. Bend Oregon Restaurants – May 26, 2008.

Laurie Rice in November 29th issue of The Source Weekly: “You’ve got to hand it to any restaurant that can serve up an amazing haute Northwest cuisine experience while sharing a parking lot with Blockbuster Video. Once again Jackalope Grill has defied all adages and proves that location is less important to success than the overall experience.” Read the entire review here.

“… by far The Best Steak I’ve had in Bend,” says this review. Of course, we agree completely. But be sure to leave us your comments. Thanks.
