Vista Pub owner Raymond Ross believes in offering a few items but making them the best.
 

With a one page menu that contains only 12 items, ordering a meal at Brookings’ newest pub seems to be ridiculously simple – until you factor in the 25 different items offered as “add-ons” to the 1/3 pound burger that is prominently displayed at the top of the menu.

Vista Pub, located on Highway 101 across from Subway, is billed as a pub and a meeting place by owner Raymond Ross.

“We want this to be a healthy part of people’s life,” he said. “A place where a family can come for lunch or dinner, or where a group of friends can get together to have a beer and mingle.”

After growing up in Brookings and graduating from Brookings-Harbor High School in 2000, Ross put himself through college by working at a pub in McCall, Idaho.
