“Delish!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Upon walking in, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Dogfish....but I was pleasantly surprised! It's a small lil hole in the wall place, but they have great food!! We went there our first night here in Portland, and both of us loved it! The grilled cheese app is great and the cuban sandwich is awesome! Go to the Dogfish Cafe, you will love it!

“Good Burger, some negatives”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is a little joint not far from Hadlock Field in Portland. The food was good, but it has an extremely small menu so there not a whole lot to choose from.
Would I go again, maybe.
It appears to be of a local's place or one of those types of bars you go to because you know someone who works there.
Destination restaurant it is not.
