Sellwood Things to Do

  • Holiday Express - Portland Steam...

    Every year, usually in early December but sometimes also involving the very last days of November, there is a series of special steam train trips done with the city of Portland owned steam locomotives. As they occur near Christmas time, they are called the "Holiday Express" and are somewhat inspired by a series of train shows done in the mid-1990s...

  • The Oaks Amusement Park

    While it is a very small amusement park even by old Oregon standards (the huge Janzen Beach amusement park is the stuff of legend, even though it has been gone some 40 years now), The Oaks is the last of the breed in the Portland area.Having started operation in 1905, it is also one of the oldest continuously operating amuseument parks in the...

Sellwood Restaurants

  • Good Thai but Hidden

    On the inside, this is a reasonably attractive Thai restaurant, with a few of the typical Thai themed decorations. It is very unfortunate that the outside is not more attractive, as the restaurant sits in a very plain strip mall next to a convenience store and a nail salon - it isn't the personality-dripping type of place that usually appeals to...

  • Thai Restaurant Voted Best on Various...

    You will definitely want to take the various awards posted on the walls here with a grain of salt. It's a good place, don't get me wrong, but there are many restaurants in Sellwood that can display awards of various types on their walls.The portions are a little small for the price compared to, for example, Tom Yum in nearby Woodstock, but they...

  • Economical and Good Mexican

    This is a local, Portland area chain of Mexican restaurants. Chain-wide, costs are kept low by using some self-serve parts to its operations, such as serving yourself drinking water from a container near the counter. This also means that you order your food and pay for it before you sit down at a table. The ordering counter is just as you walk in...

  • Ice Cream Store and So Much More

    Now, the first thing I need to tell you is about that "So Much More" part of the description. It is hard to make a living in the ice cream business in Portland, since 6 months out of the year the vast majority of the population feels that it is simply too cold to eat Ice Cream.Therefore, Staccato Gelato has branched out into other foods. For...

  • Good Mexican with Jarritos and Other...

    While there is limited outdoor seating at this Sellwood establishment, it isn't a terribly pleasant place to sit due to the amount of traffic on SE Milwaukie Avenue - yet there are a number of those who do.The restaurant arrangement is about halfway between self-service and served. That is, there is no wait staff to come to your table and pour your...

The room that is furthest from the main entrance (on the north side of the building) is generally where large groups are put. The south side of the building is generally where walk-in customers are seated.Iron Horse is popular with large groups! There was one...

    Oaks Bottom Pub is part of a small group of restaurants in the Portland associated with what used to be called the Old Lompoc Brewery, located in northwest Portland. The Old Lompoc House was a fairly well known establishment in Portland in the 1950s and 1960s, located on SW First and Arthur. With fond memories of this establishment, the owners of...

  • Known Best for Desserts

    First off, you need to know that this review concerns the Papa Haydn's restaurant in Sellwood, not the one in Northwest Portland. I don't understand why, but when I have visited the Northwest Portland restaurant it was an unpleasant experience, and therefore I don't recommend going there.The east side location doesn't feature the good people...

Sellwood Off The Beaten Path

  • Bald Eagles at Oaks Bottom

    There are several Bald Eagles that are regular visitors at Oaks Bottom. While they follow migrating fish and therefore they may not be in the area all the time, it does pay to keep your eyes open and check the area regularly.The trees along the steep slope on the east side of the wetlands are a favorite location. Try looking in the trees along SE...

    Several years ago, students at Llewellyn Elementary School in Sellwood created various works of art to decorate the fence at their school. This resulted in the eccentric fence along SE 14th seen in the photos here.The fence is located on the west side of 14th Avenue and runs from about halfway between Tolman Street and Henry Street to the...

    Having been constructed in 1851, this little church is one of the last remaining buldings in Portland from the early days of the region. It began life in Milwaukie, was moved several times, and finally ended up in Sellwood to begin a new life, and it is now one of the most popular places in Portland to have a wedding.The structure is not large, and...
