Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We just stopped in for drinks at this sports bar, and enjoyed Avid Cider's Guava. The service was great, and people around us all seemed to be enjoying the food offerings available. I would go back if I was in the area again.

A nice little hometown bar for the locals to come and get pissed off at the teams for losing . Right by PDX and it’s not as expensive as the airport bars and others around the area. Or early to leave this is a good...place to come.More

The bisque/salad combo is terrific. A full bowl and good sized salad. Fresh, varied. Not much of a crowd on a Sunday night, but I came here for dinner, not a crowd. A good place.

A pleasant surprise right near Fairfield Inn and Hilton Garden Inn. I went in around 8 as I had just arrived in town for early morning flight. I had the smoked cuban, nice size sandwich. Had aide salad which was good mix of spinach. Nice...beer menu. Nice staff and quick service.More

This place is a short walk form out hotel, Courtyard by Marriott which is super close to the airport. We were seated right away and the service was very good throughout our meal. I had the Crab Asparagus Bisque. Tasty and lots of flavor. My...main course was their Prime rib with steamed broccoli. The Prime Rib was juicy and full of flavor. Nice way to end the day after fishing on the Willamette River for sturgeon.More

Friendly staff and quaint little sports bar with hi-def TV’s. The fresh cut homemade fries are awesome with a terrific draft beer selection. Great experience with good service and excellent food.

We have eaten two meals at this local sports bar while staying at a nearby hotel. The service was friendly and prompt and the food was hot and tasty. The place was friendly and welcoming.

My wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel and were looking for a place to eat and watch sports. Based on proximity to our hotel and online reviews, we decided to head to Sidelines. When we walked in (about 7:30-8:00 PM), almost every...table was occupied however most tables had 1-2 people. We were fortunate to get a table, We were disappointed that all but two of the TV's were focused on Monday Night Football. Given the time of the year, I was hoping that they would also have at least one baseball game on as well. In their defense, I did not ask to see if they could put baseball on one of the TV's. It seemed that they were short staffed as I only saw three waitresses providing table service. Their beer selection was decent but heavily tilted toward IPA's so my wife was happy. She ordered a half order of nachos (thanks to the waitress who suggested that a half order would likely be sufficient). I ordered a chicken caesar wrap with sweet potato fries and their pilsener. My wife and I enjoyed the beers we received and my wife was satisfied with the quantity of the half order of nachos but commented that they came out lukewarm so they had likely been sitting for a while. My chicken caesar wrap was standard and I enjoyed the sweet potato fries. Overall the food was pretty average as was the service although it was likely affected by the number of staff working that night. If we are in the area again, we would likely try another place.More

Perfect location right by all of the Marriott hotels. I have eaten there several times. Cobb salad is great with a tasty thousand island dressing. Burgers are really thick and cooked to perfection

A short walk from The Airport Comfort Suites is a nice little restaurant and sports bar. The food was good, the prices were very reasonable, and the service was excellent. Couldn't ask for anything more.

We had a busy day returning from the Coast and having settled into our hotel we were hungry! The hotel did not have a restaurant and we had returned our rental car. Thus, we needed a restaurant that we could easily walk to. Sidelines was...recommended. We shared an appetizer and a quesadilla grande with added chicken. Very good food-hot and large portions. Very good server. It definitely met our needs. We did not order drinks but it appeared they had a nice bar .More

Try to eat here each time I go to Portland. Smaller sports bar with a great variety of local beers, and an excellent menu. After I sat down and ordered a beer, had two other wait staff ask if I was able to get a...drink order in. This excellent service continues the entire time I am here, and instead of the employees worrying about their tables, they are making sure all the customers are taken care of. The Philly Cheese Steak is one of the best I've had!!More

I’m only giving a 3 star, sorry! The food was a little expensive and the prices you see on the menu on TripAdvisor are not the real prices in the restaurant! Also, the lady who took my order in person, accidentally thought I ordered two...of the exact kid meals for $7 a piece! I didn’t catch the error until I got back to my hotel room with 3 meals instead of two! Suppose that’s my fault for signing the receipt and not double checking! It was average bar food!More
