I'm not from the South, but I wanted to try some Southern food. I tried the Screen Door plate with grits, collard greens, and drumsticks. The grits were creamy and the drumsticks had great seasoning and were crisp! First time trying collard greens and I'll definitely try them again. The wait wasn't too long for two, 45 mins, I've heard... More

I mean, really. Cheesy grits, Oyster Poorboy, Chicken and waffles, oh my. Lively place with bustling kitchen and there could be wait to be seated but worth it. You can order regular bkfasts or lunch if you want but iam reaching out the Frittata today.

Every time I visit Portland, I always pay a visit to the Screen Door. Even though there is always a wait, it is totally worth it. The food is always amazing and the atmosphere charming.

I had the biscuits with chicken (had the gravy) and it was very good. The cheddar grits was good but not for me (tastes like mac and cheese but since it's grits it's chewed mac and cheese, haha). It was good tasting though, I'm just not a mac and cheese person. My sister got the chicken with waffle. We like... More

I can understand why Screen Door gets the crowds they do. The food here is amazing! I got the buttermilk fried chicken plate with mashed potatoes and collard greens. The chicken is a boneless breast and thigh and the size of each piece of chicken is big enough for one person. The collard greens were tender and had a good... More

Decided to come here after receiving a recommendation fron my hotel and boy did it not disappoint. I opted for the brisket which came with coleslaw, baked beans, and fried onions. The brisket was fantastic you could really taste the smokiness. The sides were also great. The portion was massive so I ended up taking half of it home. I... More

Whether or not people believe that this is authentic southern food, it is crazy delicious. I've had the chicken and waffles, the huevos racheros, the biscuits and gravy, candied bacon, and a few other things and every one of them was beyond delicious. The wait can be a bit of a deterrent, but if you can wait 20 minutes or... More

We came as a larger group (6 people) which didn't help our waiting time for a brunch table on the weekend, but we didn't leave disappointed (or hungry!). When we were finally seated, service was efficient and friendly. Our server was very patient with us when we took a bit longer to decide on what to order and he was... More

They got some ono grinds there, but it ain't really that authentic despite what people may tell you. Run of the mill chicken.
