I was in Portland for a marathon and wanted to make sure that I had a post-race dinner I wouldn't forget. I was traveling solo so decided to sit at the bar. I started with the mussels, which were amazing. Not that you can really...More

Decor, service and bar are excellent. But VERY CORPORATE. About 4oz of Columbia River King salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans and about 1 oz of out of season shredded Dunginess crab topping was @$44. Calamari and carb cake appetizers were excellent but pricey....More
