Lots of prom parties this evening. Our server did well, despite the hoopla. Food was very good as always. We always enjoy Jakes for the old Portland atmosphere and outstanding seafood. Service is normally excellent. We will be back here in a week, as a matter of fact.

Happies menu is extensive, cheap, and food really well prepared. Bar tenders are on top of customers needs and polite. Great place to meet friends after work, grab a craft beer, and sample the happy hour menu. Dinner menu gets a bit more pricey, but food quality and preparation is very good.

We came here our second night in Portland; we heard that this place has been open for many many years and is the best place to come for steak and seafood. The table started with an array of seafood apps and the onion strings (maybe just a touch to oily, but still very delicious and the sauces complimented nicely). I... More

This steak house in downtown Portland, is attached to a hotel, but you'd never know it. The 100+ year old building retains its charm, including a fantastic carved wooden bar. Prices are on the high side (steaks run from $25 to $50), but there are other things on the menu as well, such as several fish options, pork chops, and... More

My son and I had a wonderful late lunch at this exquisite restaurant. The service was very good. The restaurant was very clean and the decor reminded me of an old time supper club... My son had the meatloaf in which he stated it was the best he had ever had. I had the almond crusted rainbow trout. It was... More

We had dinner at an outside table which was perfect. Good wine list with fair prices & a really good menu selection.

We were told by friends not to miss this place! We were so glad we took their advice. Coming from michigan, great seafood is a rarity. Call and make reservations. When you do....ask to be seated in John's area. He is a GEM of a waiter....and made our decisions so easy. My husband had the Copper River Salmon and enjoyed... More

The breakfast was a reasonable price compared to the prices in restaurants associated with similarly priced hotel restaurants. The breakfast menu should have described the potatoes as having onions and peppers, which changes the taste. You have to like peppers. Like most breakfast restaurants these days, they deep fry their potatoes rather than cook them on the grill, which seems... More

Old-fashioned menu--middle-of-the road 1960's nostalgic options cooked well: steaks, fish, pork chops, meatloaf, shrimp cocktail...I liked our server and thought he did a great job handling riotously loud and large drunken tables nearby. Uninteresting wine list.
