I have been frequenting the Bear Paw for years, at first before or after a show next door; and a little more often since I moved to the neighborhood six years ago. I've played trivia, sang karaoke and attended other events here, always having a great time. Food is admittedly greasy, but the fish and chips are surprisingly good. I'm always greeted with smiles from staff and regulars.
Food was good, nothin to write home about. The service is one of the worst. Ordered meatloaf, was okay, I didn't like it-not what I expected. Took 2 bites and asked to exchange it for a burger (which I know are delicious). Waitress was rude in saying nothin was wrong with it, she could box it up for someone else in my party (there were 10 of us celebrating a birthday) and that I would still be charged for it. I asked to speak with the manager. He came out and was extremely rude stating, among other random stuff, that it was an $11 meal and that he would not take it off the bill He finally did remove it after other people in my party spoke up. There was no apology about my dissatisfaction or his rude demeanor. Neither I, the other 9 people I was with, nor any other of my friends or family will be dining there again.
A great pit stop for wine, cheese, and food for your bike picnic in Vancouver or along the Columbia River (picnic baskets also available). It is a quick 12 minute bike ride from the Expo MAX Station (trail most of the way) or jump on the CTRAN 105 Express Bus (for a 15 minute ride from the bus mall). Come by bike or bus during Car Free Fridays and get a chance at a prize (I won a t-shirt!).
I have been coming to Produce Row since the early 70's. it was a GREAT Place THEN. Sorry but no more. In the early days the sandwiches came as small, medium and large. Most days all I could eat was a medium. It was chock full of ingredients, tasty, very juicy and a bit slopy to eat....have plenty of napkins. The beers was an incredible selection from around the world. In the past few years the beer list has dwindled and the sandwich no longer has sizes. It came as what had been the small and the ingredients were skimpy.Still tasty. I took a group of friends who came from out of town and we headed to Produce on our recommendation. The decor has drastically changed from a working class establishment to a now Yuppie place. These places have their place, just not here. Gone are the sandwiches I have loved for around 40 years....gone are most of the beers and the artmosphere has changed as well. I am now in mourning for the loss of a friend and companion in my journey through life. I would start a boycott of the restaurant, but I don't think they'd get it.
Still got great service during a packed house on a Saturday night. Unfortunately they do not take reservations and I had to wait an hour to get in, but they do give you a pager, which gave me and my lady a great opportunity to enjoy a walk along the river. The view here is truly fantastic!
My food, the blue cheese burger, was great, though it was served warm instead of hot. I'm sure it was on the plate a couple minutes waiting for the server, as they were super busy. My lady's food, a pulled pork BBQ sandwich, was not special, but not horrible. Side salad was good, with dressing served on the side without request. Tots were great though the portion was a little small. The house beer I consumed known as Ruby Ale is awesome.
Decor is top notch. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. Every McMenamin's I've been to has been very good and this was no exception. Aside from the 2nd rate BBQ sandwich, I was very happy with my selection, my drink, my server and the location itself. I would absolutely recommend this place.
My little sister works here, and she is AWESOME.
wow! I headed up there to have a burger last monday. An artist named Aux.78 blew me away. he performs for only a handful of people every monday night. this has to be one of Portland's more original and creative musicians. the Red Room has him. I don't know how that managed that, but they did. great place to chill. the guy played music to the basketball game we were watching. talented dude.
Great day. We had so much fun at the deck today. We took my mom for Mother's Day. They had heaters and made my mom feel so special. It was great for the whole family. We were glad that we could make reservations! Great fish tacos and ribs today!! We can't wait for SUN!!
I retract my review from a few years back...the Tilly is dead.
The food, service and music all suck. Clueless new owners.
Too bad, back in the day, this used to be the Hot spot on the westside, now it's just a spot.
Great place, changing every day,,,BridgeTown Comedy thought this was the best place to do their show,,,come on down and have Fish & Chips every Friday
One of my favorite bars in town for a low-key weeknight drink. Everything is reasonably priced. They obviously read their feng-shui books, because the fishtank is a vision when you walk in. I also really like the staff; they are unpretensious and friendly (just don't be a creep by taking advantage of their friendliness- they're paid to be nice to you, after all).
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. :)
