Started in 1946 by restaurateur Dick Sayler, Sayler's has survived sluggish economies, a terrible fire (in 1978), and a visit from George Bush Sr. (a photo of him hangs on the wall) to become one of Portland's most beloved eateries. The place is massive, but maintains a cozy vibe, with cushy booths, friendly servers, and a surprisingly cool bar that runs happy hour from 3-6 pm and 9 pm-midnight every day of the week. The menu is meat, meat, meat, and every meal comes with salad, choice of baked potato or fries, bread, and a lovely little dish of ice cream for dessert.
