Yur's has a 'Happy Hour' that runs from 11am till 7pm. Happy Hour??, Nuts!!, that's a Happy Day. Day bartender Jen is who I usually see and she is the best. If you want your drink order remembered after only one visit, this is your kind of place. I've eaten there twice and it was "Yummy".
If you like good drinks, a friendly staff, pool, music, TV/Sports or just want to relax in a cozy booth, I suggest you drop in. thanks, Don
Ok this place is a candidate for kitchen nightmare but I’ll call it customer nightmare ok I’m gonna cut to the chase this started from the ordering food we asked if the fried chicken dinner could be modified Answer NO then waiter was asked to ask the cook he reluctantly said ok and was also asked to switch fries instead of the hard luke warm mashed potatoes that ended up on the plate oh yeah he just brought the order and said that they prepackage there dinners and there could be no changes in chicken pieces and he forgot the fries which he promptly fixed. the appetizer was calamari which prolly was cooked properly but served cold to luke warm what a shame NOW For My Personal nightmare In Rancid microwaved over cooked old food my first order was the wonderful sounding Prime Rib Beef Stroganoff but somewhere the wonderful got lost or ran away in preparation lolol here what I got it look good but far from it had linguini noodles bathed in a watery beef bouillon tasting sauce with a sour cream splashed on top and the prime rib cubes tasted old, frozen and re-microwaved and served to me all I can say is YUCK and this was the waiter choice as well shoulda known….So I sent it back the next wonderfully rancid thing I ordered was something off they special ribs menu .it was called riblets after another 20 minute wait out pop a decent look serving of ribs I said LOOKED ….they were cold-warm but ok I went for it anyway they were tender meat pulled right off but then I was smacked with a pungent smell like a not clean fish market LOLOL Really I though ….. I tried it and Arrrrg Yuck again I quickly smelled the meat and yes it was the meat and it had had a rotting fishy smoky smell lolol shock I thought it was me and had 3 there people smellin the rib all agreed Eewo I then asked the waiter to have a wiff he said smells fine REALLY then he added that he had just eaten some ick ….. so very disappointed someone at the table felt sorry for this place and said just keep it if ya can fix it at home give it to your dogs hmmm rotten ribs my dogs would bit you trying to give then rotten food lolololo so we kept the 15 dollar old rancid ribs ok now by this time anyone else said forget it but not me desperate to find something edible and the the fact that I usta like this place I though this was just a fluke I ordered again Halibut and fries after another long wait OMG don’t you know it [ -- ] also this is un heard of it had a gr8 beer batter but it was re heated it tasted and felt like it was wrapped fish in a pancake and WoW almost done fries as well but hey the fries were hot.. ok now at this point I’m were all not happy so hey I order a drink can mess that up right.. so I order shot of Cuervo Gold and a beer and don’t you know this fool brought me a silver tequila bar pour and when I pointed it out he told me it was Cuervo gold I put a white napkin behind the glass and said it was not and he told me it was and walk away without offer me other options
A R E U Kidding me so I calmly went to the very nice bartenders Codi and Cherylnn with my complaint I think Codi explained that they didn’t carry Curevo products and she let me sample the bar brand and I explained that it tasted like a off brand Paton she agreed and quickly suggested another brand and made me a new one all this while our clueless slow and slightly rude waiter was not around I finally had enough and pull him to the side and explained the situations (TEACHING MOMENT )while was admitting fault and offered to rectify the by buying me a drink of my choice which he never didn’t take off the dang bill Now all this and there was one more thing well two first my sister ordered a reg drink vodka and orange $5.75 no prob right we she ordered the same drink $6.75 so of course I ask the waiter and he replied that he does it (Clyde the owner) one of his rules that after 9:30 his drinks go up and that’s it lolololo Are you kidding What the heck Whew
So after this dinner from hadies I had enough I when to the owner (Clyde) Now this was a trip after very professionally explained to him of our experience and I also added that he should post his happy hour times if that’s what it was he told me that he has been doing this for many years and everyone already knows about this price change and I quickly told him what about the folks that this was there first time just not regulars he in a very condescending way said he would take it under consideration No apologies for the rotten food bad service and overall terrible experience my party was having you would think that all those years woulda taught him how it be a good Owner have good quality food and respect paying customers and pay we did NEVER AGAIN Oh Did I say that the music was good lolol overall I Give this place The FINGER like they did us and this a visit from the Health Inspector probably be in order it usta to be wayyyyy better
Wow cant believe I'm still not happy lol did i say the music was good I Visited September 2011
Not a bad seat in the house. So DIY, you mix your own drink
So long, Aalto. We'll miss almost everything about the laid-back, über-swank swagger of this venue
This gig's toast. We'll miss the great servers, but not the stress of dealing with hot-heads
Rad while it lasted. Change of command left us without Aalto love for 2012. Sign of a Mayan apocalypse
Yeah, we'll miss the great clientele, but not seeing the staff of 1 sweat and run around stressed all night. Keep evolving, Sandy Hut
Anyone who doesn't like this place has rich blood for only fish guts. This place is great service is slow but its the down town burger that most people are looking for. If you want a burger that's neat and clean and bland go some where else. These are messy and wonderful.
Great Service! Fab Historic Charm. Blazer game was really fun with the sound CRANKED! Love IT!
I getting more into it and it going to get better,theres alot of goodlooking ladies check it out
Great place for cocktails. Relaxed atmosphere with no TVs (hooray!). My personal favorite place to get a drink.
I'm wondering if the other reviewer who gave Hobo's one star was eating at the right restaurant? Hobo's in Old Town, Portland, Oregon is a delight. Full bar and upscale atmosphere without being stuffy - linen tablecloths and water served in goblets, pianist at the Steinway Grand some evenings, etc. Or you can dress down and play pool and relax in the courtyard and have a smoke.
The food is to DIE for. Try any pasta dish, heck - try anything on the menu - the pear and goat cheese salad with pecans is my favorite, and then the chocolate cake. The cake is so good I now make a pilgrimage to Hobo's each year on my birthday just to partake, no matter what diet I am currently on!!
Hobo's has lots of room for big parties, (reserve in advance) and is the site that houses the entrance to the infamous Portland Shanghai Tunnels from over a century ago. Tours are available on request.
Yes, there is a fantastic gay crowd that frequent Hobo's, but this is not an exclusively gay bar or crowd - in fact, it is simply a wonderful restaurant and a Portland fixture.
It should be noted that Bar Lolo is under new management and that the menu and look of the establishment has been completely revamped.
Worst service you will ever receive. But only on a Saturday or Sunday night. Anna is rude, slow, mean, and indifferent. How is she the manager? The other bartenders are so much better, they are actually friendly and helpful.
I walked into Ship Ahoy and sat down at the bar. She glared while my friend and I chatted, wondering if she would come over to us or not. Finally we moved over to the well to order. Anna still ignored us while she finished her conversation with some guy at the bar. Then when she finally came over to inquire if I wanted a drink she had nothing but attitude. She was condescending and out right rude to me.
My friend asked me to order for her because she did not want to deal with the horrible bartender.
After I ordered, Anna lingered around chatting and opening beers for other people before starting our drinks.
I like this bar, but it's not worth it if Anna is bartending, you will end up being ignored and insulted.
great food. friendly service. try the oyster club--you won't be sorry
The Krampus Nacht Ball 2011 was one of the LAMEST events I've ever paid to attend. At least crazy old shows at the XRay Cafe back in the day were only $3! In fact, I'd like my $20 back. Screamvina, Portland's pathetic, trailer-park Elvira rip-off was the worse MC I think I've ever seen in Portland; she's not dark, she's not spooky, she's pathetic, trashy, and way past her prime for those clothes she wears! I'm not sure what the Kramups 'dance' performance was all about, but talk about bastardizing another culture's traditions... all that costume making to just get up on stage and flop around like rag dolls? Basically, I paid $20 for piss poor entertainment and to watch people get really drunk... I hope the Bossanova is smart enough to not host this train wreck again. However, should Krampus Nacht return in 2012... make it only $5 to get in, because maybe it is worth $5 to laugh at this ridiculous fiasco!
AWESOME PRIME RIB DINNER. COULD BARELY FINISH. GREAT FLAVOR. NICE SERVER AND SERVICE. MUSIC WAS GREAT HAD A GUY(one man band) PLAYING ACOUSTIC GUITAR, HARMONICA AND KEEPING BEAT WITH A MILKCRATE AND TAMBORINE. THINK HIS NAME IS "CHARLIE". DEFINATELY WORTH CHECKING OUT ON THE WEEKENDS.
This is the best local bar in North Portland. If your not from here come for the worlds best $5 Chili Dog. If your an ass hole don't ruin the best drinking spot in my town.
Great wine and atmosphere!
C***, I meant Radio Cab, located itself just blocks from Joe's, for the rides back and forth, 503-227-1212. DO call Radio Cab, they'll be there in a snap.
