    Brew/Food: Produce Row Cafe

    by whowotwot Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Produce Row is a very off the beaten path place but it's not far from downtown it's just a little hard to find. If you like beer you should check it out because it has the biggest selection that I've ever seen of bottled beers from all over the world.

    Favorite Dish: There is not a huge food selection of food, mostly burgers and sandwiches.

    The Doug Fir: Timber! Late Night Food! Hipsters Snorting Blow!

    by Rude_boy22 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Well, I've always complained that Portland doesn't have enough late night establishments that fill the after 2:30 void.....The new Doug Fir has filled this void beyond my wildest expectations. I never thought the old Chinese Tea House restaurant and lounge, in who's dingy basement I used to see some of the greatest punk shows in Portland while enjoying a plate of sweet and sour pork, would undergo such a big transformation.

    Part Hitler's ski chateau, part see and be seen hipster nightclub, and part late night eatery, the Doug Fir is just plain weird. (See the review of the Jupiter Hotel for more info). Fans of downtown bar Tube will definately like the uber-hip 50's log cabin meets sleek strip club decor' . The locale is in the strange drug dealers and migrant worker area of Portland's east side at the base of the Burnside Bridge. The service varies, always nice, but frequently slow.

    But the real question is: how is the food? Well, my dear reader, you will not be dissapointed. The late night menu, though not very extensive, is hearty and prepared to perfection. Made with fresh, local ingredients and always cooked right. And the coffee is Stumptown dammit.

    Favorite Dish: The Lumberjack Scramble. A breakfast scramble with prawns. And for only six bucks-24 hour hotcake house, you and your cover charge can bite me.

    Kells Irish Restaurant &Pub: Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

    by goshawk301 Written Jan 31, 2004

    Kells occupies a beautiful historical building with a lovely facade, and is divided into two sections. On the right is a spacious public room with a ceiling festooned with folded dollar bills (I understand it's a good luck thing to throw the bill and get it stick to the ceiling; the money is periodically donated to charity). On the left is a cozy dining room.

    During Happy Hour from 4 to 7, selected items from the pub menu is available for $3 with $2 minimum drink purchase, and these include fairly substantial fare like burgers and fries and chicken curry over chips (this sounds weird, but it was quite good!). A great deal for cheap dinner and beer.

    Favorite Dish: Again, chicken curry and chips sounds strange but it was quite satisfying and went well with beer!

    Saylors Old Country Kitchen: Great Steak

    by CrystalMJones Updated Aug 6, 2003

    The bar at Saylors is as great as it gets, Fireplace, great leather chairs, nice surroundings. The restaurant is nice too very friendly people. I have taken my young children there with no problems, very nice.

    Favorite Dish: Steak, it is so juicy and tender, my mouth waters just thinking about it. There is no way that you could leave this place without being full. With your dinner you get fresh baked bread, vegi tray, soup or salad, your meal, and also some serbert for about $15.00 it is well worth it.

  • The Rose & Raindrop: Great food, best beer selection 19th century space

    by VirtualTom Written Oct 4, 2003

    Housed in a late 19th century building once build as the finest mortuary on the west coast. The seafood is very well priced, as iseverything else. The bar can get a little smokey on busy nights but the dining room is non-smoking. Banquet space for 6 - 40. The best 37 tap beer selection around (unless you insist on European beer. Good wine selection. Service is a little casual but always profesional.

    Favorite Dish: The crawfish cakes are amazing. Light and spicey. Served with a red pepper remoulade. You can also get it stuffed in halibut (amazing!). You expect this food for 3 to 6 dollars more a plate.

    Bridgeport: Bridgeport - Great Brewpub

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Oct 16, 2010

    This is a great brewpub in the Pearl District, north of downtown. It has great beer, cask ales, great food, and great service. The place is also neat in old industrial buildings with outdoor seating on a covered former loading dock, plus a stylish interior that is comfortable.
