Stopped by here looking for some beers while wandering close to my hotel. The bartender was friendly, the beers were reasonably priced, and at some point, bacon appeared in front of me as if it was brought from heaven. The only downside to my visit...was the kitchen was out of service besides the bacon, so eventually, I had to leave to find food.More

This place was a blast!! Great music and videos playing in the background creates one of the best vibes in Portland. Crazy, fun options for barstools. Swings, saddles and more. Attentive staff and fairly priced drinks. Be sure to check it out of your in...Partland. Cheers!More

They serve free bacon for happy hour. This might sound good but you are not doing yourself a favor. You keep reaching for that piece of bacon while gulping your drinks. Good for their business but not good for your health. Country music played in...the background was excellent tough.More

Country themed with surprise seating opportunities make this a must stop when in Portland. Best of all is the free bacon funnel baskets that come during happy hour with your drinks! Very friendly crowds with video screens highlighting country music and guests singing along! Actually...family friendly and limited bar menu.More

We were just wandering in Portland and happened upon Bonfire. What a fun place -very laid back. Bartender, Alexis, was GREAT - so nice! We really enjoyed it and will go back next time we're in town.

A good friend agreed to meet me last Wednesday night and suggested Bonfire since it was only several hundred feet from my hotel!! There was a sign outside stating "free bacon" ..... I don't think I've ever seen a come on like that before!! Sure...enough, we sat down and the bartender placed a container full of bacon in front of us. This is really a place for drinks but does have a food menu although I can't attest to the food quality.More

Roaming around Portland and we found this fun little country bar. Definitely made us feel a little more at home and seemed like a fun bar to finish the night in.

Stopped here for Happy Hour. First time here. Really enjoyed it. Lively and great pickle shots! Also for happy hour, they give out free BACON...tons of it. We opted not to try it, but looked good...just not so healthy.

My sister and I recently visited Portland, Maine, and were so happy to stumble upon this awesome restaurant. Their Happy Hour has free bacon - what could be better? The atmosphere is quirky and fun, and the servers are very friendly and welcoming. We had...the $3 cheeseburgers (we put our free bacon on top and had lots left over!) The food and drinks were reasonable and delicious. I will definitely place this on my list of places to return on my next visit!More
