I have been coming to this restaurant for sometime now and have never had a bad meal or experience with rudeness. However, I know they turn away allot of people who come in and try to use their restroom. The place is right next to the MAX station on 82nd and which is the reason Elmer's left. The drug addicts and disrespectful youth that ride the transit system have created issues at this restaurant. While I was eating here one day, a man and his girl friend came in to use the restroom and was turned away because they were not customers. The man smashed the window with his hand on his way by the window. He took off and left his girl friend to answer to the police when the showed up. The police like this place and showed up very fast and given the location they know was well as the law abiding public that this area is frequent by creeps. So don't listen to the bad reviews as I believe they made up by those who are the ones who have a beef with the owners. The place is always clean, food has always been fresh and very good and the staff is always friendly to customers.
A curious spot which is a fair amount larger than it appears from the outside. Featuring free live local music a couple times a week, so it's difficult to complain much, and I've enjoyed some great shows there. A great back patio area when the weather is good. Pretty good fish and chips.
Best in town never had a bad experience been going there since it opened my father comes from Indiana on visits that is his first stop by far the best restaurant around
They charged $360 to repaint a small room that only had easily removable paint spatters on one wall and the ceiling. They also have a 50% forfeiture of your deposit if you stay less than 6 months.
I wanted a space to paint, but my art wasn't selling enough to warrant keeping the room and I am dealing with financial issues, so I had to move out. I end up having to pay an additional $160 on top of losing my entire deposit.
Read the reviews from their bay area operations. Apparently this is par for the course. I should have listened to those reviews, but I was hoping the Portland space would be different. :(
Anyone know about Fujin closing soon?
My band Race of Strangers has played here four going on five times now we have played many of the good venues here and town that being said the Analog has given us the best sound and accommodations yet and the staff and sound guy Dave are amazing.
As a patron the menu is very good with the best mac & cheese around also the white wine sauce clams are a personal favorite.
Come check it out this Halloween night 2013 If you can we will be there.
Love this place.:) great selection/prices and people.:D
I've been eating here for almost 12 years, and they have NEVER disappointed. They are a simple traditional burrito like I've had while riding a horse (yes a horse) around Chihuahua state. The place is amazing despite being the simplest of simple fares. I recommend the Asada with their homemade red sauce.
Glad they closed. The food was alright but WAY overpriced. Ian the co-owner/manager is a piece of s**t. At the time of writing this, a few different former employees are still owed back paychecks.
Not as great if you want to pay more for drinks because bartender can't keep track and to try and explain to them yet still have to pay!!NO as for DJ this new joke of a person not only dresses like a tool but what comes out of his mouth is even worse!!! Awful experience will never go back please pass this on!!
Clean, corporate, noisy, kid-friendly. If you have small children, there is a play area for them. If you don't have kids, be forewarned. There will be small children here.
This location is now the Laurelwood Pub.
Old-school vintage cinema with throw-back prices in the bar-hopping zone of Milwaukie & Bybee (Kay's, Limelight, Cosmos, Laurelwood, Corkscrew, Oak's Bottom). There's sushi at Saburo's and frozen yogurt on the corner.
Closed about a year ago. "Grand Opening" signs still adorn the pizza ovens that moved 6 months ago about a block West as "Geraldo's" or something like that. Weak sauce.
dis da best school.
i like it to roll down the mountain and play jacks in the turf.
hey keep that reggae down naybors! aha ha ha ha!
I also forgot to mention that one of the waitresses told me that the owner never paid the workers on time, never pays for the cooks over-time, and never even paid the difference during the increase in minimum wage. So they were essentially working the old Oregon minimum wage for at least two months starting January 2013, and never got compensated for the difference. How could you possibly support a business like that?!
There is nothing fresh about the shrimp or the halibut. It is all frozen. I don't like the idea of paying so much for frozen food. You can taste it by the texture of the fish alone. Glorified fast-food, served to you in a dirty restaurant. The floors look like they have never been swept. Being that the restaurant runs a "gamut" of asian cuisine, you would think at least one dish would excel. Not the case, they serve you the same thing with just a different sauce on top. There is no authenticity in the taste of the food either, you are better off going to Jin Wah and spending your money on an authentic asian meal.
Ask to sit in the speakeasy. Its behind the coatrack. Password is 123 Skidoo. TELL EM OLAF sent you and they will comp you a drink.
I ordered the hush puppies, blackened fried catfish and garlic mashed potatoes. They serve instant mashed potatoes now! Tacky and gross. When I asked about it, I was told that they do that sometimes when they run out. Geez, ever heard of "86" when something runs out rather than slipping in some crappy substitute for the real thing? I would gladly have ordered something different had I known, although early into a Friday night you would think they wouldn't already be out of one of their most basic staples. Everything besides the fish tasted old, hard and stale, like it was prepared yesterday afternoon and left under a fast food heat lamp, which may explain why, on a busy night, they cranked out our food a lot faster than our drinks, which came to our table sometime after dinner arrived. Even the service was a disappointment. Our waitress was heavy on the schlocky affectations and her "eccentricities," which included skipping, a terrible fake French accent, and weaving her hand in the air while speaking as if playing a theramin, were all about as genuine as the cement-like lump of instant mashed potatoes on my plate. I have been coming to this place since they first opened up on SE Belmont street in the 90's, when the quality of the food mattered and the people serving it were great servers with real personalities. It is hard to believe how much it's all gone downhill. There are too many good late night restaurants in town to accept what they're currently churning out. Let the kids go for the atmosphere. If food or service matters to you, go elsewhere.
This pizza is amazing! So amazing. But, it takes like 45 minutes to get your food, which is not amazing. So… I haven’t been back as often as I would like because I don’t have 2 hours to eat a piece of pizza! Although, I plan on ordering carry out very soon : )
