In the age of gimmicky buzz bars, Cassidy's is suddenly that rarest of things: an unpretentious, upscale joint that welcomes all comers. While their dinners are totally fine, Cassidy's is best as a late-night place to cozy up with some chatty friends, a few drinks, and a late-night snack. It's something Portland's theater community has taken to heart—this is where you'll find the city's actors unwinding after their evening performances—as well as servers from Portland's other establishments, taking advantage of Cassidy's late last call and cushy, club room atmosphere.
