We enjoyed some craft beers out of their lovely patio. I ordered the beef stroganoff and it was the best I've had in awhile. This place doesn't disappoint.

We opted to sit in the restaurant as there was plenty of tables,There was one other group in there that came in from the bar. We both had burgers w/ fries and tots. We... More

Went here with a group of friends and found a good happy hour. $3 microbrews and well drinks, also decent food. Full dinner menu had very good food for the most part. Generous sandwiches with good side dishes and a great side salad. Nachos supreme were a bit weird... Not your typical chips. Monday night is taco night... $1 each...... More

A pleasant small bar and grill on a busy corner in North Portland. We enjoyed the owner's chat and service. Our wine choice was perfect. In addition we treated ourselves to some hand made truffles (prepared for the bar) and some roasted nuts.

This bar restaurant looks and feels like a whole in the wall bar, maybe it is, but my wife and I were happy to sit on their deck/patio space in the back of the restaurant outside. the food was good, the price was fair, and the location worked for us.

Without our 2-for-1 voucher we never would have discovered this urban oasis. A nondescript lack of curb appeal and an unremarkable bar interior lead out back to a wonderfully rustic patio with great service and truly fabulous food. We ordered the Lovejoy linguine, with Tiger prawns and a rich but light tasting sauce; and Jambalaya, again with Tiger prawns, served... More

Like the other review we also went on the Living Social deal. It was nothing like I had expected, and would not have chosen to eat there if we hadn't already purchased the voucher. The food was alright though. My steak was good, but seemed a little small and oddly shaped. The vegies served with the steak as well as... More
