Is a crappy place with crappy people
Wow! This is one place I will NEVER be returning to again! I overheard some short, little Asian guy (presumably the owner) berating his employees and talking about how "lazy Americans" are. I was so offended I got up and walked out. The
twilight use to be my favorite dive bar with a kickass breakfast menu. I had heard rumors about how the new owner had decimated the place, so I had to check it out for myself. Decimated doesnt even begin to explain what he's done. Menu sucks, ambiance has tanked!
Horrible service, horrible food! I was served raw chicken - end of story.

We used to come here to watch Blazers or NFL games. Lately the service has been AWFUL. Brooke sp? (a bartender) spent more of her time hanging out with friends than helping us.
There were about 8 people total in the bar, when I asked her to put the sound on for the Blazers game... "nope, not unless there are more people watching".... Ok fine. Three nights later I show up. "Can we get the sound on for the Rising All Stars game?" Nope, there needs to be an important game for us to put audio on. Ok, so all 6 people sitting in this self proclaimed SPORTS BAR want to listen to your Amon Tobin mp3s? PASS.
I get it. I see what you're doing. You play sports games, then everyone leaves afterwards. You don't have that cool atmosphere that you're hoping for. You can't figure out if you are a sports bar or a cool Alberta fArt bar.
Substation... You are going through an identity crisis. Everyone thought you were a Submarine sandwich shop, then you were a sports bar, now you are an empty shell of a lifeless Wall of Shame hellhole.
Good thing you are changing your name to The Station. That's not going to help you. Here's a list of things that will help you.
- Give the clients you do have on a consistent basis (myself included) the courtesy of respecting our opinions and NOT DELETING OUR POSTS ABOUT THE LACK OF SERVICE ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE.
- Serve food that DOES NOT GIVE YOU FOOD POISONING TWICE! I never made this a point until now. I wanted to like this bar, but you have made me sick TWICE!!! Once with a double outlaw burger, once with the jalepeno poppers.
- If you are a Sports Bar, then play Sports games on all of your 10+ screens with Audio. Play your shitty trance music AFTER the games. Become that cool hip bar you always wanted to AFTER the games.
- Fix your food problems. Stop making people sick. Quit charging outrageous prices. Listen to your neighbors. Respond to what they have to say.
- Tell Brooke to not talk shit under her breath as she walks by me, because I am bummed she won't play audio for the game. Completely rude.
HORSE BRASS PREFERS TO SUPPORT LOCAL DRUNK GUYS AT THE BAR THAN WOMEN TRYING TO HAVE DINNER WITH THEIR FAMILIES WHO CONFIRMED IN ADVANCE THAT ITS OKAY TO BRING CHILDREN.
One of the worst meals I have ever eaten. To call it mexican cuisine is like saying the olive garden is fine italian. The green mayo they call guacamole was the worst trick ever played on me in a restaurant. If you are looking for a break up spot however I give it five stars!
very FAT people and very OLD.
im no 10 but damb there is a hole lot of ugly there I had to get my wifes and I money back from the door fee it was too gross
Why should I eat here? With that kind of treatment from "the boss" to his employees (or former employees), I will NOT ever eat here!
Join us in supporting Gibson and help us wish her former boss, Mike Lemmo, a happy birthday!
Gibson is a barista who worked at the Lyrik Cafe for over a year.
Mike Lemmo bought the business at the beginning of August and replaced original staff after they trained their replacements. Mike often used abusive language and called Gibson a “dirty hippie” shortly before firing her via text message.
He then stole over $100 from Gibson’s final paycheck, and has yet to provide her with a single paystub.
Gibson, We Are Oregon, and dozens of community allies have held a series of actions at the Lyrik Cafe over the last 3 weeks, topped off with a picket on Tuesday. It is important that we keep the pressure on Mike to return the wages he stole from Gibson.
Mike is turning 65 this weekend, and you’re invited to his birthday picket! Come share your birthday wishes, walk the picket line, and eat some cake!

Went to Sayler’s old country kitchen with my girl Saturday Night, it was packed we had a 30 min. wait but it was that time of night
We got seated in a nice booth I ordered the Filet Mignon and Trish ordered the Prime rib, when the food came my filet was bloody when I ordered it med well and Trish’s Prime rib was the ugliest most disgusting piece of Prime rib I have ever seen, the fat on it was solid lard. We pushed both dinners to the end of the table to be sent back, the owner
Walked by and asked what was wrong with our dinners I told him my was under cooked (which it happens) and then we told him about the prime rib, he laughed in our face’s and told us we don’t know what a good Prime rib looks like and offered to cut the lard off and bring it back. “WHAT THE HELL” tell the customer they don’t know what we are talking about, I have never been treated so badly in a restaurant before and by the owner no less, I said the hell with this we are out of here, we met with the Manager which was nice and understanding and told us they had a big run on Prime rib and he was sorry and shook his head like he knew the owner was a jerk but since he was the owner there was not much he could do. Worst restaurant experience I have ever had, the owner needs to learn some customer service skills from his waitresses!!!
Traditionally poor sound quality. Every single show that I have been to over the years has had terrible mix. I hope that they invest some money on resolving these issues so that they don't become the punchline of the joke "oh no, it's at the Wonder Ballroom." The building itself is nice, unfortunately the sound quality makes great bands unlistenable.
Brings in the bros from the suburbs.
Fri & Sat night fights (and I don't mean on TV), drunk driving, obnoxious music, amateurs staggering in the middle of the street blocking traffic and causing a general public nuisance.
A disgusting and disrespectful addition to an otherwise nice neighborhood.
Main thing about this place, besides the Domino's crust, is the staff is odious, insidiously rude and just not helpful. If you ask for something, they just shrug their shoulders, "We're out of that," no apology or explanation. They'll just stand there and stare you down, obviously hoping you'll go away. And there's one scruffy dude (you're not hip, Bub, you just don't wash) and I think he's the shift supervisor or something, actually watched me park my car and waited for me to come in to order, to tell me I was parked in one of the delivery truck spots. He wouldn't take my order until I moved my car!
I've lived just a few blocks from Hot Lips for a number of years, and have been in there more times than I would like to admit, mostly because of the convenience and because there's always room in there if you want to join a few friends, but no more. This is Hawthorne, not The Pearl, we expect a better vibe, and if you want $30 for a pizza, how about delivering it hot? Next time we're in a rush, we'll hit Vicente's, where they're at least nicer.
Only reason for the star is, to be fair, they have good toppings and creative combinations. The sauce and the crust are the problem. And more importantly, the complete lack of social skills.
SERVICE SUCKS! The food is tasty, but overpriced for Foster and not worth enduring the stone faced and rude servers. Good luck getting a smile out of these gals... Go around the corner to Arleta Library instead. You might have to wait a bit longer, but the food is amazing and always served with a smile!
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
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!
This place looks nice but being completely ignored by the bartenders means I left and found a more hospitable spot. Fwiw I went with my girlfriend and the bar was only somewhat busy - others who came in after us or already had drinks were served and we were ignored. With plenty of good bars here there was no reason to stay.
Horrible customer service and dirty. Had two sips out of beer and found a fly in it and had beer for less then 2 minutes. Asked the bartender to replace it and he said if u pay for it and it wasn't his problem there were flies in the bar. They also forgot to give friend his food and we waited with no beer for 20 minutes before leaving without the food being served. Stay away from this place. Every pool stick bottom was broken along with tables in horrible condition.
