Is this now a Regal Cinema? Lose the commercials or lose us as your customers.
nice that it is all ages- sounds good inside- could be more visible outside as a music venue- kind of sketch but a good place- they have ear plugs which is nice---
nothing i can say thats wrong, but its just uncomfortable.. like an art gallery. you walk in and its set up for everyone there to notice you- like a large hallway runway. its kind of a cold atmosphere and each footstep echos, just not a place i can feel good in for hours on end. staff are really nice, (at least 4 are ex albina press baristas) coffees good of course, but i just need to feel a little less observed. perfect place if thats your thing.
big tall ceiling space with old movie house feel. Recently refurbished (july '08) with new seats, pretty comfy. Good place to go if it's important to see it on the big screen for that epic-yness.
Once, the shining beacon of Portland movie culture. Now, suffering from a bad remodel job worse help. Still, more movies then fuck.
Buster's Juice Box, you crack me up. You are a total mathlete.
I have only been here once, and on that occasion I got really drunk, couldn't figure out how to work the atm, borrowed money from friends, and took a cab home. Ahhh...memories?
i think the breakfast price average was about a dollar higher than reality but nonetheless my $8.50 brekky burrito was tasty if underwhelming in portion. my service was good and the stumptown coffee is great and they kept me full. but then again, i'm a pretty fuckin' coolguy!
I live next to this wonderful dessert haven and can't recommend it enough. You can sit for hours and enjoy little desserts or, yes, go to the counter and get something to go. It's not the place to go if you want a big piece of mediocre pie for $3, but that's obviously not its schtick. It has delicate, delicious desserts that are meant to be savored, not fill the belly. I recommend the Royale with cheese and a pot of Earl Grey tea. Wonderful.
Whats your problem baby? If you act mean, look mean, you must be mean. So does that meaness rub off on my vittles, it better not. If you don't like to work, don't
I wish Costello's could be the cafe all those people in "Friends" had, but it just isn't to be. The warm atmosphere is offset with uncomfortable seating and a distinct lack of, well, stuff-- there are no board games with half the peices missing, no collection of John Grisham novels, nothing. The food is overpriced, and you never seem to get enough coffee. Additionally, they discourage studying, going so far as to turn off the wireless on weekends. But I keep coming back. In the end, coffee is coffee and I am too lazy to walk to a better place. Hope that helps.
Not very impressed. I went recently and ordered their Mac & Cheese ($9). It was just pene with a runny cheese sauce and some super-hard bread crumbs sprinkled on top. What a rip-off! For nine bones and as long as it took, they could have at least sprinkled some real cheese on top and thrown it under the broiler for five minutes. I ate it because I was starving but I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe I'll give them another chance in the future. I like the space and the service was fine.
Drink here. Eat here. Just don't expect some of the vermon swept in here to be hep to your own perceptions of personal space or "fun".
It's not uncommon to feel like it's the bar for people that haven't done a whole hell of a lot of maturing since primary school.
one of the most charming places to get in portland. makes you feel like you're in a european cafe. (perhaps appropriately?) the service isn't the friendliest though, and the food is unexceptional. still love the place, though.
I have had many great meals here and will come back again and again. The pizza is a joke, I think it was made on tortilla. Everything else has been so good and the serves is good to great at times. The pizza was so bad.
The Goodfoot chicken strips are the best to have ever been made. I'm a vegetarian now but I bet I would drunkenly cave for some of those chicken strips. Word to the wise - I've suffered some serious burns on the roof of my mouth from those guys, so even if you're drunk and they're delish, wait a couple of minutes before stuffing your face. Oh, and awesome pinball and booth selection. Not awesome selection of dudes in baseball caps hogging pool tables and scamming on chicks.
Yes, they do serve food.. there's a little window in the corner with nobody there. There are only a few choices once you find somebody to take your order, and the quality isn't great but it's not bad, either. If you're there and hungry, get some food.. I wouldn't recommend going just for the food, though.
Wouldn't it be great if the McMenamin brothers were alive and doing their thing during Roosevelt's NEW DEAL?
Don't you think that those poor Oakies could've really used some Grateful Dead merchandise and some of the worst wine of the Willamette Valley when they arrived?
That said, they're still fun. You just can't say anything bad about $3 movies; particularly with all of the great beers on tap.
I've been there several times for shows and drinking in general, but not only have I never noticed the presence of food, it never would have occured to me to eat there.
Though I despise Alberta, and stayed off it almost the entire 6 months I lived in the neighborhood, occasionally I would allow myself to be dragged to the Alberta Street Public House.
Besides saving me from my low blood sugar numerous times with affordable snacks, INCLUDING a decent, relatively cheap fish-and-chips, getting a Guiness and walking around to the back back back deck (ask how to get out there) is a nice feeling of 'away-ness' that one rarely gets at bars in this town. Walking inside for a drink is so distant that one forgets that one is at a commercial establishment. One of the few places where people will strike up a conversation with strangers, in part because of the seclusion.
Beulahland is a hip little spot -this is no lie. I used to live within walking distance to it, and go in every so often for a bite to eat and a drink. However, since there is no deep fryer, I've always been bummed about having to eat chips instead of fries with my Gardenburger there. Other than that, no complaints!
