If you're in the area, can be a fun way to hang out for a few hours by playing a little pool and having a libation. Food is ok, nothing crazy good or anything though, but decent enough if you're hungry. We have had some group events here where fake gambling tables were brought in, and then it's a fun... More

Go to Uptown for happy hour. Being from out of town and on foot, we were directed by our hotel to 23rd Street for multiple choices. We chanced upon the Uptown Billiards Club. Not being billiard players or club members never dissuaded 2 intrepid widows! We knew of Portland 's reputation for good and reasonable food as a lure to... More

I had heard good things about the this place and wanted to eat here and look at it as a venue for a birthday event. We arrived early for our reservation and pretty much no one was there. It has a nice looking bar and lots of low lighting and dark wood. We were seated kind of off the bar.... More

We had a great night here recently playing billiards with a group, food was terrific, atmosphere was great, it looks a little dodgy from the outside but go up the stairs and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Have been going to the Uptown Billiards Club since they opened - at first it was just for pool and beer (and the free casino nights when they hosted them) but started to go for food when the 5 course pairings started. I've only missed 1 so far and have been very satisfied every time. With 1 common theme for... More

It's a. But far from downtown but this swanky billiards joint was worth the trip. The 5 course tasting menu was outstanding. We paired with wine and loved the experience.

I've been going to Uptown Billiards since the conception of the 5 Course dinner. Although the prices have significantly gone up over the years, the meals are amazing. I've never had one I didn't enjoy. The themed courses are magnificent and the wine pairing are fantastic. Roxanne is a rock-star waitress whom we've had almost every time.

After reading the reviews I decided to make reservations for 4. One of our party has a severe dairy food allergy and the dinner menu was not posted on the website, so while making the reservations I asked if they could accommodate non dairy. Based on what I was told the sampling menu would not work but there were items... More

Okay, I decided to quit trying to keep this my personal secret--this is clearly the best value for amazing gourmet cuisine. We try to save our dining dollars and go here once a month. Each menu is built around a seasonal ingredient or theme, and there is always at least one dish that will really surprise you. About $50 each... More

It seems odd that a billards place is our favorite restaurant, especially when we don't even play billiards, but this place is absolutely amazing. We love it so much that we go at least once a month to partake of their 5-course dinner specials. Sign up for their email notices to find out what's cooking. They change their themed 5-course...
