We met some friends here thinking this would be a good choice for laid back chill time. The only thing laid back was the service. Our server was so out to lunch it would defy any words. He was basically more concerned about trying to be a hipster than doing his job. This place is a joke, the music will... More

We had relatively Fast service. All three of us were disappointed with the burger. For the price We were expecting at least a side of chips, or fries. The music was too loud to have any conversation.

Interesting decor with both indoor and outdoor seating. Family friendly and reasonably priced. Located in Longfellow Square so in good weather frequently there is music on the square. Burgers are the best!

I came with my mom after hearing that hot suppa would be an hour wait. My sister and her friends worked in the restaurant industry in this area for years and always raved about brunch here. It was practically empty when we walked in and when we saw the limited menu options, we were a little disappointed. However, everything was... More

A friend and I decided on an impromptu stop here recently on a mid-weeknight, before sundown. We were having an LFK craving. There were maybe 15 customers in there when we arrived: the usual eclectic mix of just about every kind of hipster in town, everyone younger than us. Because it wasn't busy we had the choice of several different... More

I had one of those days..not feeling well, a bit cranky and feeling out of sorts. I don't those days very often and I decided to go for a walk down Congress. I love walking in Portland - so many people to see and places to explore. Anyway, I love many restaurants along Congress and as I was walking, decided... More

Although LFK does seem to be trying pretty hard to be trendy and cater to the cool kids, I can't say I was uncomfortable there. The food was just okay, but the service was really great, which mostly left us making fun of our 40-something selves instead of the funky art, overthought cocktail names, and bizzaro bathroom art. Glad we... More

Good food (have the tots! Have the Korean BBQ wings!). Solid beer list. Hipster-cool kid vibes. Service is solid and the people watching in Longfellow Square can't be beat. I'd come again!

If we had to pick a local pub while we lived in Portland (West End), this is it. I still always try to get there when I am back in town. I love the atmosphere and beer selection as well as great comfort food and inspired cocktail list.
