Bud Jackson’s Sportsman’s Bar & Grill is the place to be in La Grande, Oregon. Bud’s is famous for great food, family friendly dining, a full service lounge with late night dancing, pool tables and music.

There’s always an excellent selection of draft beer and a tantalizing wine list.
Bud’s is a favorite destination for both locals and travelers. Family owned with a small town, hard working crew, Bud’s atmosphere often feels like home away from home. Business travelers often refer clients and friends to Bud’s especially for a cold beer and a great steak.
Serving lunch, dinner and late night fare there is always a good meal and fun time to be had at Bud’s. Weekly specials offer great deals like Wednesday Ribeye dinners for two and Taco Night. Thursday’s hand trimmed Top Sirloins are delicious and Fridays are a real treat with Clam Chowder, a seafood basket and House Smoked Prime Rib (after 5PM). Secret recipes for Ribs, Steak Bites and Fry Sauce keep regulars and visitors coming back for more. The crew often hears epicurean stories from our customers about their last visit to Bud’s. Local radio ads with our jovial signature slogan, “Be There!” and band nights (where you may just catch Bud sitting in on guitar for a rock n’ roll set) are great fun at Bud Jackson’s.
Our location is terrific as we are in a unique spot on Adam’s Avenue in La Grande which makes Bud’s an easy place for patrons to visit on the way to and from many routes through Eastern Oregon. Surrounded by the beautiful Grand Ronde Valley, Bud and Brenda Ashcroft remodeled and opened Bud Jackson’s in December 2003. Formerly the East Side Tavern, many steadfast locals stop by and reminisce about the place before and after. The hot spot has continued to grow and flourish over the years and Bud and Brenda are grateful to be part of La Grande’s small business community.
The Oregonian couple are often on site and it’s common for the crew to hear customers say, “I know Bud!”. We like to say we know him too and hope to see you again and again here at the “Be There!” place to be, Bud Jackson’s Sportsman’s Bar & Grill.
