Sean Mercer is the general manager and pro-operator that oversees all things Lifty's. He brings decades of experience in the hospitality industry from near and far. He is a mixologist, a wine aficionado, a foodie, and an all around outstanding guy.

Lifty's is a family-owned business run by Chris Justema, a local veteran in the restaurant, bar, and beer scene in Central Oregon.  He is a native Oregonian who settled in Bend 23 years ago. His wife Elizabeth hailed from the technology industry, but spent the last 10 years teaching high school at Summit. One Justema daughter is off at college and the other is working her way through high school, but both are likely to be clearing and washing your dishes this summer.


And: Justy’s became Lifty’s! (Little trademark issue)
Same great staff, same great food, same owners.
