Skeptical at first...

I must admit I was a bit skeptical at first, Southern food in Portlandia?!? Surely it wouldn't live up to the standards Ive set for my beloved southern food. To my surprise I was more than pleased! The fried chicken was a big boneless breast very moist and flavorful w/crunchy breading. I tried the... read more

The last time we were in Portland, we went to Screen door and after waiting for 1.5 hours we got to eat the best bacon i had ever had. That was a couple of years ago. Fast forward to our visit yesterday. Due to the long wait, we decided to get take out. We tried the Louisiana Red Hot Link... More

Folks talk about the great southern food found at the Screen Door, and as one with family in the south, I expected something familiar and tasty. Yes, chicken gizzards and fried okra are in the southern category, but hardly very exciting. I hated the long wait outside on a rainy afternoon, and once inside found it to be terribly overcrowded...

While my wife and I have gone to this restaurant in the past, trying to get a meal there on the weekend became a waiting game that we weren't willing to play, so it was with great joy that we read about their decision to open up for breakfast during the week - yep, they're open EVERY DAY for breakfast!...

Arrived at 6PM - packed inside and on patio, but was seated immediately (for 2). It was so noisy inside that the waiter could barely hear us. Only craft beer available.

The salesman / reception man at Stumptown Coffee headquarters store recommended the Screen Door for breakfast. We went and would definitely go back if we are ever in Portland again. By coincidence our waitress was in Stumptown at the same time as we were and then recognized us in the restaurant. No, it wasn't a set-up! The Screen Door has... More

When our friends told us about this place, we were skeptical. We had yet to find good Southern food outside of the South. Screen Door proves it can be done. I ordered sweet tea which was spot on to what you find in the South. My wife ordered the fried chicken and I ordered the beef brisket. Hers arrived as... More

We just arrived in town and decided to try this place. It was just crowded enough that we knew it was good. We had the veggie Midas & hot link po boy. Both were very good and filling.

My business partner and I went for lunch it was busy but not crowded. We were seated immediately. The ambiance was great. Server was very friendly. We had the chicken and waffles and it was the best I have ever had!!

The advertisement for the Screen Door in Portland, Oregon suggested a southern style home cooked meal and a full service bar. Being raised in Texas home cooked met Fried everything, my favorite! The menu reflected Fried Chicken and that was all it took- we were on our way. Speaking of menus, Screen Door has an extensive menu and all items... More
