Cash only- same with Los Gorditos next door (It's 2011).
With as big of a patio they have, you would think they would have at least a section for smoking.
....But I put up it because the beer selection is awesome and there are tasty tacos next door.
I applaud this restaurant's commitment to gluten-free recipes and sustainable practices. The staff was friendly; attentive, but not too intrusive.
However, I cannot agree with their claims of "Portland's best" fish & chips, and certainly not "World's Greatest Fries." The fish (I had cod, admittedly the least expensive option) portion was small, especially for the price, and the flavor was nondescript. The fries were also definitely middle-of-the-road, even for just Portland, let alone the world.
The New England Clam Chowder wasn't bad, but still, not particularly memorable.
Perhaps "Okayest" is a more accurate adjective than "Best" or "Greatest."
The wait staff is so-so. Nice, but scattered. I live in the neighborhood and even got to know the people on staff a little from frequenting the place. They take a lot of smoke breaks, get distracted and don't check back with you. You could need some ketchup for a really long time-- or sit with an empty beer for 15 minutes when you or your friend want a second one and it's not because they are busy, as they often aren't. Food's fine, pretty good beer selection.
This place is great, except when one of the owners brings his spray-bottle-toting brats down there. Serious, that shit gets old REAL fucking fast.
The asiago cheese dip got me wet. They only serve it fall/winter, but it keeps me coming in. The drink prices are terrible unless your a beer swiller (They make thier own on site and it is pretty good). Some of the bar tenders are snotty so I stick to the dining room but the food and non-bar wait staff always make up for it. Happy hour has awesome selections but even the expensive stuff is worth it. They try really hard to be fancy, being right on the max line makes that hard but also can provide great entertainment while dining. They also have pool tables and big screens for you sporties.
Love it. Just kinda getting overrun with hipsters, like everything. Sad.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in town (read- mid-1990's). It still has the atmosphere I like, but the food is just not up to par.
I just moved here from a small city in Tennessee. This was the first place I went to sample the dim fertile waters in a much bigger scene. I wore all black just to be safe. Black is always the safest color in Portland, I've since discovered. After walking through a termite's intestine decorated by gay loggers, I found the downstairs music venue. It was one of those "indeterminate" type indie bands with some guy on bass playing the brown noise a lot, a guy in a stocking cap on keyboards, and a shrill, ironically nerdy vocalist. This one had a lady who swore into the mic at intervals and played tambourine. Weaving through the people in front of the stage (not a wild bunch) was like getting trapped in a rabbi's walk-in closet. It was musty; lots of black cloth. And damn near all of them wore chunky black spectacles. C'mon. I got ostracized for my entire childhood because of my poor vision and NOW it's so cool to be a nerdy intellectual?!! Oy, vey! God damn all the unearned intellectualism in this burg!
Fairly middle of the road stuff here - reasonably priced dependable pizza, friendly staff, and great karaoke, but the beer is ALWAYS flat. Good enough for a quick neighborhood bite.
Actually the Delta is about as unauthenic as Portland can come. I like to laugh at all the uber-Portlanders thinking they are at yet another trendy one-of-a-kind place. While I love the drinks and love to get a gut bomb going...it's a chain restaurant people!!!
Best tuna melt in town, but sort of a weird atmosphere http://www.brookegeery.com/lunchonhawthorn…
The service was excellent (although we were pretty much the only ones there.)
I wasn't too pleased with my benny, my friend loved the veggie hash. The bloody mary bar is rediculously enticing. They even have huge crisp bacon to throw in it. I was impressed with their drink list, too.
I'll be back for a second/third opinion... :)
Foods decent, staff is nice, and it's and excellent place to watch football
First of all OP Nobody wants to hear about your "condo in the Pearl". Get over yourself. The place is decent enough it is a little Hootersesque, but that is not per se a bad thing
It was reasonable and pretty fun when I went but that was in 2006.
1st delivered pizza was excellent. 2nd was pretty good. 3rd was unacceptable. There was almost NO sauce. They delivered another pizza after we complained. This one also had almost NO sauce. We ordered the same pizza all 3 times, including a request for their oil/garlic topping, and on the final pizza, it was a dripping mess.
The good news is they refunded our money.
Cool spot. Looks and feels like you're in Keebler Village. (another childhood dream realized) Last time I was here I didn't even order a drink I just sat in the back corner writing in my journal and burned my arm with cigarettes. The bartenders were totally cool with it. The only downside is that it's really close to the Portland Mercury office and I've seen some of the employees hanging out here.
Came here after the Sam Adams story broke looking for some action. A friend told me that "card room" was innuendo for some really kinky stuff... left a bit underwhelmed though. For instance, the bathrooms weren't nearly filthy enough for the kind of anonymous public sex that you can get back East. Great french fries though.
the bye and bye drink is delicious!
weeping tofu sandwich was YUM, get it without the jalepinos and hot sauce its soooo good. Great setting, art, candle lit environment and awesome people all around.
