I loved the smoked trout and celeriac apple soup. Also enjoyed the smoke scallops. Two appetizers and a soup made for a lovely ladies lunch.

We dined there 2 times this month and had great food each time. I had a surf and turf plate that was comprised of large grilled scallops on bed of braised oxtail taken off the bone and served on risotto with kale. The oxtail was extremely flavorful and the entire plate while unusual was very flavorful. I'll long remember it... More

I've read a few of the reviews that gave this restaurant a one star rating. It's kinda strange to me as every time we go there we are very pleased, and we've been going there for at least 10 to 15 years.. We were there yesterday. I had a great burger and my wife had excellent oysters and a Cesar... More

We've been to Southpark on several occasions and often like to split our visit (dinner before show, dessert after). The oyster bar is exquisite, and the menu offers old favorites (beet salad, maple cream puffs) and new delights. The bread, tender with salty crust and whipped butter, is wonderful. I find that a small plate and salad make a very... More

Thank you for the great review, Leebot! Always a pleasure to have you join us, so glad to hear the food was delicious and service was friendly. It is true that when events are being held at the near by concert halls and play houses our restaurant tends to get quite busy before and after the performances. Thank you for... More

Heading to Southpark Seafood happy hour became a habit for my wife and I during our trip to Portland in February. The oysters and steamed clams were amazing. The staff does a good job as well helping us with finding other gems on the menu like the Beet salad also a happy hour $5 star.

My wife and I went to Southpark Seafood for dinner as part of our valentine's weekend. We arrived there in time for happy hour, but had a regular non happy hour dinner. But I noticed during happy hour while waiting for our table, that they have oysters from about 10 different locations in Oregon and Washington. Quite interesting if you... More

Thank you for the stellar review, Phil! Whether it be wild caught or farmed, ALL the seafood we sell is always fished or farmed in ways that minimize the environmental impact to support healthy oceans. We frequently have even more than a dozen types of oysters available making our selection the largest selection in Portland! Thanks again, Jason - GM More

The food was amazing. Local seafood and a changing menu makes this place a nice regular stop. You never know what will be served next. We enjoyed the beet salad (split it), grilled octopus, steamer clams, and the chocolate board for dessert. The dessert was a must for anyone visiting. The location to the Schnitzer Concert hall made this a... More

While visiting Portland and the local museum downtown we stumbled upon this restaurant for lunch. We thought the menu selections were good. My husband especially enjoyed their clam chowder and I thought the fish tacos were excellent. We found the service good and the prices reasonable for lunch. If we lived locally, we would certainly visit again.

We haven't been here in years, but the quality of food and service has not changed. We were able to get an early reservation, (they have happy hour every day from 3-6 pm or 10-12 pm, (glass of wine for $5.00).

Good seafood. New menu changed to small plates and is a little confusing. Shrimp & Grits was excellent. Great place for Happy Hour.
