The Jolly JL is a chill neighborhood bar with outstanding, affordable bar food (including fish tacos to die for) and a staff focused on keeping a smile on your face. They will put on any game/sport you ask for on one of their many big screens and they offer Trivia on Thursdays, live music on Fridays. There is outdoor seating so you can enjoy all your vices at once! If you're craving breakfast on the weekends, they have that too! My faves: Sunny's Hidden Treasure (Sweet Tea Vodka, Lemonade, & Ice Tea), Tradition Burger (w/fried egg & ham), Buffalo Wings, Garlic Fries, and the Fried Pickles!!!
Great vibe! exellent food ! Awesome BEER ! I love the pickeled pork sammy and the IPA. Added bonus: rare off street parking!
The bartenders, the drinks, and atmosphere are all great. Naturally...that has seemed to attract a fun & friendly crowd. Trivia on Tuesdays is awesome as well.
My new favorite. This place is amazing. Crusty on the outside and amazingly delicious and chewy on the inside. The couple who own this place make it a great place to hang out. They are friendly and serve, in my humble opinion, the best bar food in Portland.
This is not an indian restaurant! I'm not sure how this place has gained a good reputation. Everything is priced higher than any indian restaurant I've been to from cali to seattle. Paying for naan is optional at some, but they don't even give you the mandatory papadum appetizer with the custom sauces. For those of you non experimental people indian spices should explode in your mouth with lots of flavors, not just chili powder. My chicken tikka masala was overcooked and you can get better quality down at any gross convenience store teriyaki spot. You're better off going to ANY other indian restaurant in town. You can't rip on the owner for cruising around though, that is actually a pretty normal occurrence in other indian places.
Last weekend, I took my mother and her sister (both in their mid-80's) and my cousin to Stanford's for dinner. We had a very new, unsure waitress but she tried hard. She came and told us the computer went down and there would be a slight delay for our dinner. We didn't see her again for about 30-40 minutes; not even to bring us more drinks. At the end of dinner I complained about the wait and asked her to tell the manager how long we waited. I just wanted a slight apology. The manager gave us all our dinners and drinks at no charge even over my objections that it wasn't necessary.
We have eaten at this restaurant for years, and this is the first time we've had a problem. The staff certainly went above and beyond our expections to make up for the delay of our dinners.
The management of this establishment is a class act and it's obvious their customers are important to them.
Been closed for years
Awesome location and awesome beer!
I seriously take myself all the time. :)
Disappointing happy hour. If you go, be ready to pay for the regular menu. They recently changed their happy hour burger: it was a great deal, now you'll be paying WAY too much for a little slider. Happy hour oysters were undercooked and kind of gross. One caveat: the servers were great, so maybe if you go outside of happy hour you'll have a good experience.

Just around the corner from Oswego Lake House Restaurant & Lounge on State St.
Manzana's is a great place to dine. Love the food.
In the summer I head to the Lake House as there is an abundance of people gathered on the deck till 11PM.
damn it headandtheheart, you're right. imagine the nerve, a group of people with a particular set of views making music that they enjoy.
The Bearded douche of a bartender is reason enough to never go to this bar. I am well used to bearded hipserts having a better than thou attitude, but someone give this guy a crown. He proceeded to make fun of our group when we were the only ones in the bar. flick shit to a friend who tried making a joke. And was just an all around asshole. I guess our lack of "cool" just pissed him of
great cocktails, big salads and reasonably priced. I loved the atmosphere and our server was wonderful.
One of the very best brewpubs in PDX.
Great food. They actually cook the burgers (locally-raised cows) to order. I have a hard time getting my meat bloody enough and they do it right here. The garlic fries are memorable and the homemade chipotle dressing for the salad is unique and fabulous. But really, it's about the beer. I can't stop going back. A lot of the beers I've tried are great, but I keep coming back to the Workhorse IPA. It's one of the best IPAs I've ever had, and I've become quite an IPA snob. The happy hour sliders are good, too, but I've mostly had burgers and beer. It's my go-to place.
Tonight the service was shiiite. I've been here a few times and have always enjoyed the service and the food, but tonight was one of the rare evenings when my tip reflected the service my friends and I received. I take care of people all day long and really do appreciate the work of anyone who provides good customer service. I'm typically respectful and courteous, but tonight when I found myself being rude in return, I realized that it was time to find a new burger joint.
Despite what the tools from Mock Crest who bought the place think, this place is fucking YORGO'S. And will always be.
I used to like the "Old Portsmouth Club", when they had good, consistant music & food. There are just too many dive bars in the neighborhood to compete with. The owner (and lamest of the Penner clan) seems to have the attention span of a 3 year old. Is it a gay bar? Is it an all ages pizza pub? Or is it a north portland knuckle head hangout? Every couple of monthes it's something different, the only thing that doesn't change is the obnoxious odor. This place is a bad time waiting to happen. Smells like Pee Club.
