When we're in Portland, we try to make it a point at least once to stop at the Screen Door for breakfast. The first time we ever visited, there was a line all the way out the door and down the street. This time, however...(a weekday), we got lucky and were seated immediately. My wife had the Bannas Foster and I had the biscuits & gravy. Both were amazing! Our server (wish I had caught her name) was very friendly and attentive. This place was recommended to me by a former Portland native several years ago, and it hasn't disappointed yet. Definitely a must-go breakfast place!More

Booking a reservation is a great way to get ahead of any lines. Even if you don’t, eating here is worth any wait! Started with the Praline Bacon which was amazing and followed that up with the famous chicken and waffles which was so good!...If you are Portland you need to visit Screen Door.More

I only had the Shrimp and Grits brunch, but it was the absolute the best meal I've had in years. The eggs were orange (like free ranged), the sauce was amazing, plus bacon, and cheese grits. I will definitely eat there again when I'm in...Portland, Oregon. Service and such were also very good. Absolutely worth trying to find parking for. (Portland city parking is a nightmare.) Oh, and the place was full when I arrived, so good sign.More

From the time we walked in the service, it was excellent. The food was amazing. The sweet potato waffle was amazing tastes like pumpkin bread, and chicken was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere really made you feel like you were on a screened in porch...in the south. Parking is a little hard to find but worth the walk. It was so good had to have desert pecan pie and egg nog cheesecake were delicious. Will definitely go back to try something different.More

Consistently the best breakfast in Portland! Our favs are the chicken and sweet potato waffles. And the grits are DIVINE! Great servers, luscious drinks from a full bar. Now that they take reservations, we will be able to go back way more often!!

I was very impressed with my dining experience at this establishment. Our waiter was very helpful and kind. The restaurant was very accommodating to my son’s tree nut allergy. Our meals were delicious, I recommend the chicken and waffles and the chicken tenders with Mac...and cheese. I will come back to this restaurant when I am back in Portland.More

I love Screen door. Its an adorable midcentury diner, but the menu is not. On several visits I've ordered the chicken and waffles (two pieces of chicken is the sweet spot) and I just can't stop ordering it, best chicken and waffles I've ever had....The sweet potato waffle perfectly compliments the SUPER crispy chicken. Everything (arugala pie, etouffe, mac and cheese) I've stolen from others in my party's plates has been 5/5 as well. Great service, but make a reservation because they fill up fast!More

This review is for the Screen Door at the Portland airport. We couldn't find a way to review it so this will have to work! First of all, the food is very, very good! The service is also outstanding, especially the waitress named Sam. The...drinks were very reasonably priced, for being in the airport. I had the chicken sandwich and could barely even eat it all. I can't say enough about this restaurant. Please give kudos to the management for Sam's excellent service.More

I'll keep it brief - got the Jambalaya, cornbread, and fried oysters. The fried oysters were very good. The Jambalaya was okay, there were pieces of crawfish shell in the food & the blacked fish on top was a little overcooked & the spices burned....The cornbread was dry.More

After relaxing and getting mellow at Knot Springs, my boyfriend and I were looking to quench our appetites before hitting the OMSI and do a little touring around Portland. We stopped by here since we've heard amazing and rave reviews about this place, and tbh...the photos look bomb af. We came during the lunch rush but were super lucky to be seated relatively quickly as there was space at the bar, and we didn't mind where we sat as long as we sat. Our server/bartender was warm and welcoming, giving us an appropriate amount of time to look over the menu and answer our questions if we had any. I ended up getting the chicken and waffles to satisfy my sweet tooth, while my boyfriend got the cajun scramble. The wait time to get the food wasn't so bad, and boy did we dig in when we got it! The chicken was fried to perfection, and the waffles were soft, sweet, and melted in your mouth. Mixed together was just the combo I needed! I also had a bite of the cajun scramble, and man was it flavorful! The spices with the creamy cheddar cheese grits and andouille sausage were such delicious. Coming from the South (Texas, y'all), we really couldn't complain much. I will say if you can, definitely reserve a table cause this place can get packed!More
