If tasting unusual and hard to find bourbons is one of your favorite pleasures, you may never leave this bar. A two-page selection of bourbons awaits you.... And also scotches and other whiskeys.....or whisky as the Scotch would spell it. There's also great burgers, grilled romaine salad, and duck fat fries. Yum.

We visited this restaurant for pris fixe month in Portland. Hundreds of restaurants offer a three course meal for 29$. Since I do like whiskey, this seemed like a great place to visit. The food was better then average and what made the place a 5 was the personable service we got. My main course was not what I ordered... More

Earlier in the month, we thought we would have some pre-concert (next door is the Alberta Rose Theater) drinks and food. We had 2 hours before the show, so we were not in a hurry. Right off the bat, they were out of Chardonnay and their wine list was extensive, but lacking in good solid whites. Our waiter offered us... More

My husband and I ordered the Alberta Burger and the Daily Veg which was roasted turnips in truffle butter. Both were incredibly rich - over the top rich! The fries were tasty but quite salty. The burger had carmelized onions and blue cheese so rich was to be expected but it was kind of overwhelming. The turnips were delicious but... More

Drinks, as expected, are great. We also really enjoyed the stuffed dates and charcuterie board. Two of our group had burgers and upgraded to duck fat fries. WAY too salty. I had the roasted chicken. The chicken was moist and flavorful, a bit salty. Morels in the sauce added a nice earthiness and texture. The accompanying au gratin potatoes were... More

Went for Portland Dining Month - wasn't disappointed in the whiskey selection. Had two tasters. Service was incredibly slow - even for laid back PDX. Food was just average. In general, the idea of dining month is to showcase foods. Would say the the dessert was the best part. Place was also incredibly LOUD. Don't understand why places play music... More
