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.

  • Why stocks could be in a lose-lose situation
    The big jobs report – set to be released Friday morning – could be a lose-lose situation for stocks which already have had a rough week.
  • Solid US job gains expected for 6th straight month
    WASHINGTON (AP) — With a host of reports this week pointing to a healthier U.S. economy, analysts expect Friday's monthly jobs report to send a similar message.
  • Healthcare.gov not fully ready for round two
    Well, after nearly a year of significant repair efforts pushing the website’s price tag to roughly $840 million, HealthCare.gov still “won’t be perfect” and isn’t “fully ready” for next year’s open enrollment, officials said Thursday. During a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing lawmakers grilled officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services about the website, the costs it has incurred over the last year, and its readiness for next year’s enrollment process. “If there’s going to be trouble, I think the committee wants to know,” Subcommittee Chairman Tim Murphy (R-PA) said at the hearing. Ahead of the hearing, the Government Accountability Office released a report raising concerns over the site’s current stability as well as detailing serious management and oversight issues at CMS that led to Healthcare.gov’s disastrous rollout last year.
