Well made cocktails, upscale pub food, ENGLISH MUFFIN PIZZA, SHORT RIB SHEPHERD’S PIE etc. Decent but obscure wines about $10+

Had a nice visit to Kask, even if for only one drink. We tucked in on a busy Friday night while waiting for a table at nearby Tasty n Alder. We learned that Kask had been closed for a bit since our last visit. Delighted it was back up and running now. High end cocktails, great beer and wine selection... More

We visited here while waiting for our table at their restaurant, Gruner, next door the last night they served their 'standard' menu. We were taken with how quaint and kozy this small bar was. It is really old school inside with a lot of wood and antiques in the right way. The drink menu was shot but very creative and... More

I was there early so there was plenty of seating around 7:00 p.m. The bartenders are more like mixologists and are very knowledgeable about the drinks. They were very precise in what ingredients they used and the drinks were delicious. I had the Alexander's Wept. They... More

This is a fun, hip place to get a drink in Portland. Even though it was fairly full and there was one large party when we were there, the service was very good. I liked the decor, but the tables are quite low and the lamps hang very low as well, so watch your head if you're a tall person.... More

These guys are like mad scientists. Sat at the bar and one of the bar tenders was so very nice answering all my nutty questions about what he was making. Cool room with a great small atmosphere. Very inventive with the drink selection. Highly recommended.

I have to say, I love my german food and I love my german beer! This place makes some of the best dishes, that make me want to go back again and again! There are a few dishes on there that I could add to my "if I die this would be my last meal menu!" It is that good!... More
