4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place has a great menu, some standard breakfast fare, but some unique items as well. Portions were very large and extremely flavorful. My only critique is that they asked us to leave early as they had a big table of people coming in that they weren't expecting and they were packed. But I would definitely, definitely, definitely go back!

I had a half serving of French toast which was more than enough food. It was delicious. The atmosphere was warm, and the staff were very friendly. I went alone, and felt comfortable. Really enjoyed it.

"Gravy" is not a restaurant name one would associate with the NW. In fact the menu is Charleston, Charlotte, or Savannah ( 'burbs). I had the "Romero" scramble which was FILLED with tasty sausage. Two in our group stepped up the "whole hog" (a scramble with an unrelated French name) that was more than anyone could finish. Great food ,HUGE... More

Ate at Gravy four different times while visiting my daughter at University of Portland. Even though the wait is always long, it is so worth it, as the food is outstanding and seriously the best. We eat breakfast out every weekend in the South Bay of Los Angeles, and after eating at Gravy, that is now hard to do because... More

Chicken fried steak, omelette, scrambles,oatmeal that is not your boring oatmeal and the best French toast. You have to eat here several times so you can try every thing. Challah bread French toast is now my fav but I love the hash browns and gravy too. Bloody Mary's are tasty too.

What a meal! We had the most delicious brunch here. We waited a little bit to get a seat but boy was it worth it! The portions are HUGE that we each had another meal from what was left.

For the line outside I was expecting slightly better. The line outside can be intimidating but, don't let that scare you off. The food was great! Huge portions and quality food for what you pay for. Try the omelettes or the oatmeal brulee (highly recommended). The down side was the slow service and the unfriendliness of the server.

Had to wait about 45 minutes for a table on a Friday late morning. Our waiter was awesome, fast, and friendly. The breakfast was pretty dang delicious- most of all that habanero sauce!! Wish they sold that sauce in bottles by the door. I don't think I would endure another wait time again there, but I would definitely go back... More

Went for breakfast with the family. We were all happy with what we ordered. The hash browns are excellent, very brown and crispy; the servings are very generous and the food is delicious! The bacon in the omelette comes in thick meaty chunks. We tried 2 kinds of breakfast sandwiches; both were very good and big. Love this place; have... More
