Portland is known for its micro-breweries. Lots and lots of microbreweries. Breakside is one of the very best. Casual place in north Portland that serves both their own beers along with a light menu of lunch food from sandwiches and salads to pizza. Very casual,...picnic table style of place with both indoor and outdoor seating.More

Enjoyed the beer selections, but problems with pricing. Their Pretzel appetizer is good & very large. Price is now increased to $13. The problem is that they give you only a very small amount of cheese (less than a golf ball sized amount) which is...good for about a third of the pretzel. If you request extra cheese, you can get it for $2. more (they only tell you that later after you have the pretzel) - still not enough. Not bad for the restaurant, a 15% increase in the price of the pretzel & you still don't get enough dipping cheese. .... Poor PR.More

Headed down to PDX for a concert and were looking for a little Brewery to have a beer and dinner before the show and found Breakside..Nice place,the usual,now popular restored "garage" turned into a Brewery..very nicely done...Service and Beer was excellent (White-Tea-Rice!!) and even bought...a few bottles that they sell from the cooler. We DID NOT eat there as expected....reason...it was freaking too cold...the whold side of building is Glass garage doors and yoou could feel the cold coming thru them..I still love the place,and will go back when weather is warmer (and it was in the 40;s when we went,seemed warmer outside)....We just didnt want to be eating dinner in our Jackets...Still a 5 * place otherwise...More

A fun place to hang out, and friendly to kids and dogs. The 3 of us who got burgers all loved them; the mac and cheese and Reuben were also wonderful. Good kids menu.

We have eaten and "sampled" a number of breweries in the Portland area and these guys get it right with both beer and food. I'm not an IPA guy but their breakside is quite good. I also tried a sour and a BBA Imperial Stout...which was outstanding. Get a table in the evening outside and get ready to call an Uber... it'll be worth it.More

A great place in the middle of the neighborhood! We rented and AirBNB nearby and walked here. It was just staring to fill in with locals out for a drink and chilling in Portland. We didn't order any food, just beverages. Staff was friendly and...the beer was great! Seating inside and out.More

If you are a fan of Portlandia,and you liked the Brunch village episode, this brewery is right next door. The food was great and the beer was pretty good too. My wife got a sampler but she actually liked the beer I got better.

We headed to NW Portland to visit a couple distillery tasting rooms (Aria Gin and Bull Run Whiskey). Both tasting rooms we fun and enjoyable. They also sell other bar items. The only suggested improvement would be to have a few bar stools. Both tastings...required standing the entire time. After our tastings we headed to Breakside for a late lunch. You must try the giant pretzel. The hummus plate was excellent. Both provide a lot of food, great for sharing. Will return to this neighborhood again, lots of shops and restaurants to check out.More

We stopped by Breakside for a late afternoon beer and ended up having dinner there. The inside has a great feel to it and the outside eating area was fun. The Pilsner and pale ales were very tasty if you are looking for a lighter...beer!More

We had planned on a different location but traffic on the freeway drove us off the path. We had both enjoyed Breakside in the past. Always unusual beers choices and food is nice. Service was great. Lots of infants and kids on premises.
