Crossroads Restaurant Group was founded by David & Christie Burnett and Bud & Kathy Gabriel. David has worked in the Portland area restaurant market since 1983. He spent 24 years with Pacific Coast Restaurants working for industry leaders like Bob Farrell, Al Fleenor, Robert MacLellan and Wes Curl. Bob Farrell also owned Farrell's Ice Cream Parlors before joining Pacific Coast Restaurants. Bob Farrell's "Guest Service Philosophy - Give 'Em the Pickle" is part of the core foundation of Oswego Grill, Copper River Restaurant & Bar and Hop Social Tavern. During David's 24 years with Pacific Coast Restaurants, he led some of Portland's most successful restaurants. Having a dream to open their own restaurant, David and Christie joined forces with Bud and Kathy Gabriel, who were instrumental in making that dream come true. Bud and Kathy have built several successful businesses in the Northwest over the past 32 years. Their wealth of knowledge and expertise as successful business owners and operators has been invaluable to the success of Crossroads Restaurant Group!
Together they opened their first Restaurant, Oswego Grill, in Lake Oswego, Oregon on March 10, 2009. Oswego Grill is designed as "Upscale Elegance at Casual Price!" At Oswego Grill, we feature our custom built Hardwood Grill, which allows us to cook all of our USDA Choice Domestic Steaks, Burgers and Fresh Seafood over Mesquite and Apple Wood. Our second Oswego Grill opened in Wilsonville, Oregon on August 16, 2011. Our third location, Copper River Restaurant and Bar opened in Hillsboro, Oregon on April 14, 2015. Copper River Restaurant & Bar features 52 local craft beers on tap, scratch made locally sourced food and a fun lively atmosphere. In the Fall of 2017, Crossroads Restaurant Group introduces its newest concept, Hop Social Tavern in Chandler, Arizona at Chandler Fashion Center! Hop Social Tavern will feature over 50 local craft beers on tap, while utilizing the finest ingredients that Arizona has to offer, in all of the very best scratch made recipes!
The design for Hop Social Tavern draws inspiration from all of the places we have discovered in our travels that exude a feeling of comfort. From the golden hues in the reclaimed wood in the dining room, to the made-in-America solid wood tables, to the hand-made ceramic tiles, the material palette was selected to speak directly to our senses. A global search for the perfect vintage fixtures yielded what is now an eclectic selection of re-purposed lighting. The same meticulous care and craft found in Hop Social’s culinary selections can be found throughout the interior and exterior spaces. A variety of seating from banquettes to booths, and low and high tables throughout the bar and dining room provide an inviting setting spanning from happy hour to a family dinner. A chef’s table for eight is set adjacent to the exposition kitchen in a space with a twenty-foot ceiling and a custom chandelier. The energy inside the space is fueled by the activity at the bar and, across the dining room, the exposition kitchen. Designed to invite guests to watch the art of preparing the food, the kitchen’s open plan creates a dynamic anchor to the main dining room by celebrating the ritual of dining out. The bar is a comfortable, intimate setting with gorgeous high-top banquette seating lining the walls and a stunning island bar featuring a stunning array of fifty-two beer taps.
The copper-clad beer lines fly overhead through the dining room delivering ice cold beer to the bar. Custom designed leather sofas composed on a field of cement tile compete the main dining room seating composition adjacent to the bar. The vintage accent furniture was sourced from as far away as Europe and Scandinavia to find just the right pieces to engender the feeling of comfort and familiarity that is Hop Social.
We have one and only one Service Philosophy in our restaurants, "The answer is yes! What's the question?"
We look forward to Serving you soon!
Dave & Christie, Bud & Kathy
