Ashland is full of good spots, but try Standing Stone Berwery for good local and brews. Full bar too. Talent has a gem, New Sammie's Cowboy Bistro, but reservations in advance are a must. Owners used to run the New Boonville Hotel, a SF Bay Area foodies legend in the early 80's. A real gem is Gogi's, in Jacksonville. Small continental place that uses all of the Northwest's best and freshest. I think it's the best in Southern Oregon. Good luck.
