This is an older restaurant with very good food. The place needs updating but the food will bring them back. I ordered the french dip and the man asked if I wanted a whole or half. I ordered half and was shocked how big it was. It was great and their fries were wonderful. I wanted to order dessert as... More

We went there for dinner because of the good reviews. A party of 5, two of us ordered the chicken special, two ordered the greek combo and one had the scallops. Nobody liked the food, pretty bland, tasteless. Scallops were tiny!

Never have been to the restaurant itself but did have a delivery service bring me food from this restaurant and I must say the food was awesome. It is the very heart of comfort food. I had the Greek spaghetti and the best cabbage rolls served in Portland Oregon. The cabbage rolls were Greek style stuffed with hamburger, rice and... More

Our waitress wisely suggested the small. It was huge, but dry. Coffee was just OK. Fruit cup was generous, fresh and ripe. Service was great.

My wife and I had a wonderful breakfast at Overlook. Our waitress Morgan was the epitome of ideal service. The menu contained everything that we could expect and want from a traditional American restaurant. The only critical comment that I could make is that one of my wife's eggs was a little overcooked on her eggs benedict. Other than that,... More

I've used this restaurant as a Nopo staple for 20 years. The food while plentiful, is suffering. I'm not sure if the cook staff has changed or if the owners stopped caring but the fare isn't what it used to be. Very sad.

Visiting Portland for a one day stay. My girlfriend and her sister are regulars, had sent selfies (shudder - hate cameras), and I knew it'd have to be a stop for at least a meal or two. Having recently visited a Black Bear Diner I wasn't in much of a mood to stop at another example of this sort of... More

Wow, we really loved our breakfast. I had the cinnamon roll French toast with poached eggs (they were perfectly cooked), bacon and two sausages. Server was friendly and fast. Place was very clean. Popular. We will definitely return!!!
