Menu offers a variety of items, good food and good service. The black bean burger is very good. Good happy hour. Nice, hip atmosphere.
We're locals... we live a few blocks away... and we eat here about once/month. It's one of our go-to restaurants in downtown Portland, and that's saying a lot, since there are SO many great restaurants in Portland. We like The Original for 3 reasons: 1) we've never had to wait, even on a Friday night at 7 pm... 2) the... More
Now, order the fried chicken! Be prepared when it comes, its going to look over done maybe a little on the dark side. But now put your fork on it and watch what happens. It is cooked to perfection... Super moist and perfect all the way through! Maybe a little over breaded for some. but notice there are almost no... More

Great meal, prompt and friendly good service, tasty food and convenient location to downtown hotel. Searched based on location and kid friendly in yelp. The booth with a booster seat worked great for our 1 yr old. Our server was great and had excellent suggestions. Fun decor and ambiance. Will be going again recommending this to Portland goers.
Truly a great menu, great service, excellent quality. A place to revisit again! Located in the heart of Portland, it is a great place to have breakfast and see all of the wonderful shops!
