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
The Waypost is now open till 10pm or later and has a full liquor license. Minors not allowed after 6pm
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.
Alright 2007, this is 2011 calling. Time for a more current review.
Since the state of Oregon banned smoking two years ago, Joe's Cellar has become a much cooler place to be. The drinks are still stiff and the crowd on the bar side has gotten progressively younger -- or am I just getting older? At least late at night its younger :)
Early mornings are the career drinkers and that's the best (and nearly only) time to pop in to the diner side for some eggs, bacon, and white bread toast. Yes, pretty truck stop food time but that's just what comfort food is. Satisfying and unassuming; As is the bar side, where you can also be served food -- like steak and eggs for breakfast to take the edge off the night you had before -- a night that you spent at Joe's!
The smoking areas are now limited to out front of the entrance and out the back entrance in a covered tent area; that's where the cooler people hang out generally and you can't usually get in or out of the place without getting a little smoke on you, but that's what dive bars are about. Fancy schmancy Joe's is not.
Joe's is a good place to get your drink on. It has a modern/expansive/expensive online jukebox, pool tables, and sports on at least two big screens = welcome to Joe's.
Finally, and probably most important, if you go there on a Thursday or Sunday night, prepare yourself for the best karaoke talent in town. I should know, this is Roy. 90 percent stellar and 10 percent maverick performances. Tell the Captain that Roy says hello; it will freak his s*** out.
If in NW Portland and thirsty for some adult libations, find it in the alphabet district at NW 21st and Pettygrove. Too hard to remember? Call Broadway Cab and they can get you there for next to nothing and take your inebriated self home afterwards, 209-227-1234. Joe's, the place to be, when you know. Teatotallers need not apply, seriously, don't go to Joe's, not actually welcome.
