Free Pac Man, Galaga, Donkey Kong and shuffleboard for the kids (and adults), good beer and mixed drink selection for the adults, with an awesome, kid-friendly staff. They did discontinue the pizza for the kids, but they still have plenty of other kid faves. The upcharge to get the spicy fried chicken or the fries with gravy are beyond worth... More

Servers were good. Food was good. Drinks were good. Cost was fair. I don't know why I didn't go years ago when they first opened.

We had a group 10 people. We wanted a place to chill and drink but not too loud and people can still talk. They had a shuffle board for people to play with. They also had a table to accommodate us. The drinks were cool. The food was amazing. The sad part was that they closed at 11PM.

Portland seems to have a ton of great little bars, tavern and brewpubs, particularly east of the river. This one is located in SE Portland. It was within walking distance of our AirBnB!!! We met some young friends there. It was delightful. The service was great. The waiter was extremely knowledgable about both their beverages and their food. The food... More

Went there yesterday and overall left pretty unimpressed. I had the fried chicken sandwich and while it tasted OK it was really greasy. And considering the portion size it was wayyyy overpriced, there is no way that should cost $17. OK selection of beer. Atmosphere is OK, nothing special. Likely wouldn't return.

Small but full windowed corner bar with a fine focus on the menu. drinks are creative or traditional. Fries are the best on Division street. Burger options include blue cheese which I demand you try! like the art on the wall too.

This is one of our favorite casual spots to go to in Portland. We have a couple of favorite dishes there, so when we get the hankering for one of those this is where we go. There was a brief period when they were going for a "vibrant music scene" and had the music cranked up to 11. You couldn't... More

Everybody at our table of 7 adults loved their food. My kimchi pancake with the togarashi sauce/dip was one of the best things I've eaten. Tasty.
