If you like real rock music, you'll like Slow Bar. Good happy hour, great bartender from West Virginia that wisely never wants to go back. :-) I'm from PA, but have been in Portland twenty years, about like he has. Haven't tried the food yet,...More

Stopped for a drink and a snack. Wine was $8 for an A to Z Pinot. Fries were good. Someone in our group had a pastrami and liked it. Service was okay. Music was a bit loud but it is a bar.

The coolest bar/foodie haunt in Portland. The food is an epicurean delight. The atmosphere metal debonair. Service was expedient and prompt. Great beer selection for the beer snob. Just a great vibe and decor to match. Highly recommended.

I've been here a couple times and I've yet to be disappointed. The happy hour is fantastic, with inexpensive burgers, fries, salads and whatnot that are high quality, delicious and served with an obvious attention to detail. Cocktails are very nice too. The space itself...More

Raves about the Slowburger were not wasted on us. We made tracks there one day, but actually asked for take-out because we were in a hurry. The staff were great, really friendly and fun. The bar itself is relatively unremarkable from the outside, small with...More

Went on a Sunday evening around 6:30. We were a party of 3 and found a table right away. Place was clean, music on, but not too loud. I suggest a table at the back or outside if you want to have a conversation. Food...More
