Popped in on a Thursday night before seeing a show at the State Theater. It was busy but we found seats and were given our drinks very quickly. We placed our orders and it took awhile to come out but it was definitely worth it. I had the panzanella and my companions ordered falafel, and the turkey club. We shared... More

Went here with another couple and we had a great time. Atmosphere is nice and not too loud if you wish to have a conversation with somebody at your table. Tables next to you can be a little close depending on the situation. Wings were really good. Great beer selection. Not a huge cocktail list. All the food was phenomenal.... More

I'm a Portland resident and anyone that comes to visit me I try to take them here!! Amazing food - they're burgers are the best I've ever had, and the bacon dusted french fries are to die for!! The prices aren't too bad either and the service is good, only drawback is it gets a bit cramped when it's busy... More

I ordered a cheeseburger and the salt and pepper fries. The cheese was icky, and I ended up scraping it off. The fries were perfect, though. My waitress wasn't very friendly or helpful (maybe because I was eating alone and she forgot about me?). It was pretty expensive for a mediocre meal. I wouldn't go back.

I was a little disappointed but my husband thought it was the greatest burger and fries ever. My burger was overloaded with sauce that completely overwhelmed the meat and to me the bacon dust on our fries tasted artificial. He had a burger whose bun was made from deep fried mac n cheese. He said it tasted great. Atmosphere was... More

We first saw Nosh on an episode of Man vs Food, so had to visit whilst in Portland. Nosh had a chilled out atmosphere, a great selection of drinks and a varied selection of burgers. We ordered the Nosh Mac 'N Stack burger, which was OK, but probably not the best choice and the famous Apocalypse Now Burger, which fully... More

Best. Burger. Ever. Probably some of the most peculiar pairings on a burger I have ever seen, but boy do they work! Bacon Dusted Fries, with a large selection of sauces. 'nuff said
