We had a family lunch at Francis Xavier's without calling ahead. There were 13 of us and they took great care of us. They were very accommodating. The server did a great job handling all the orders and refills that constantly came at him. The food was good most of the party got breakfast and it was very large servings.... More

My go to place for lunch when in the area, I have eaten here many times. Consistently good food and service at reasonable prices. Really like the Tortilla soup which is not listed on menu and a great club sandwich @ $10.50. The lounge is cozy and has a fireplace

We stopped here for breakfast. I had eggs benedict and hashbrowns. The portions are very large so you won't go hungry. The food was very good. This will be our new go to place for breakfast while in Portland. The atmosphere was nice, the restaurant appeared modern, and for the most part, pretty clean.

I love the Sunday chicken dinner. I am a sucker for chicken and mashed potatoes! Too bad it's only available on Sundays! My husband and I recently ate there again. This time it was pot roast for me. Okay, I love comfort food! We've been to this restaurant many times and will continue to do so in the future.

We always visit this restaurant when we come into town. It's one of those "go to" places. The food is good and the atmosphere, although it's not real old, it has that old feel.

Service was so-so. food was also so-so. This would not be a first choice for a place to eat. The bar area has better service. could be termed a sports bar with the large screen TV.

Whenever we are in Gresham we always make it a point to eat at least one breakfast at Francis Xavier's. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I will add one tip: try and make it to the restaurant during Oktoberfest. The chef does an excellent job with dishes that compliment the season.

This restaurant was next to our hotel and it offers a good variety of food at a reasonable price. I had some fish and chips. The server was ver nice and helpful. I think it is a really good choice if you are in this area by the airport
