Hard to find but watch for the signs. Tucked away, it looks smaller than the spacious, light, lovely restaurant inside. Wonderful, friendly service bringing excellent food. Wide variety, especially for my many food restrictions. Very accommodating. What a pleasure!

We were looking for a quiet place to enjoy a late morning Sunday brunch, and found a gem in the Snow Squall. We were seated right away, had fantastic service, and great food.

Nothing to write home about. Angus burger was decent only because I added avocado and red onion. The fries were nice and crispy and the service was pretty good. Probably won't return.

After two incredibly disappointing meals at the new North 43, a friend suggested we try the Snow Squall. Wow!!! The food, service and atmosphere were off the charts. The calamari was delectable, and the haddock so fresh you it must have been in the ocean...More

This was the best place we ate while visiting Portland! The food was delicious and reasonably priced, service was friendly and fast, and the restuarant is nicely decorated with a nice outdoor area. Highly recommend!

Love this restaurant. We enjoyed an early dinner at Snow Squall. House wine, Caesar salad with shrimp, wonderful rolls, chicken wings. Great service and we sat next to a mother and young son and a group of 5 female friends. Nice ambiance and great evening!

Snow Squall has a great menu with nightly specials and great cocktails. The kids menu is great if you are looking for a family night out. Live music on certain nights of the week and the patio is wonderful in the summer.

I met some friends there on a Thursday evening. We had very comfy chairs next to a fireplace. Was very well attended by a sweet waitress. Moved into the dining room and sat near a different fire place. Wonderful food and setting! Loved it.

This place was a little difficult to find, but when we got there the service was very good. The food was fair and not that well prepared.

There is usually live music (1 musician with a guitar) on Friday and Saturday evenings. Not too loud - just right for the space.
