This was a fabulous experience. I started with mussels, best I have had. Then I had the burger, better than the mussels! The beer was the best of all. Bear Republic Racer 5, cask conditioned!!! Charlie behind the bar was great. I was there on a Thursday as they opened so it wasn't chaos. Food was excellent.

Higgins has been a favorite of ours for several years and this visit was no exception. We were seated within minutes of our arrival and our waiter explained all the evening's specials. We both chose the petrale sole. It has always been a favorite but the way it was prepared this evening was exceptional. It was rolled and then sautéed... More

I can't say enough nice things about this restaurant. We went in late December for my husband's birthday while visiting Portland, where we used to live. The staff was phenomenal. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere was cozy on a cold, rainy night. The charcuterie was incredible. We enjoyed it so much, we came back two nights later for more.... More

My husband and I had a terrific Friday dinner at Higgins while visiting Portland. We used Uber but locals might find parking downtown a challenge. Higgins offered a varied menu, with a number of daily specials. Our Server was terrific, suggesting items and being attentive without hovering. We enjoyed our dinner and would certainly return.

Nostalgic bar with a great Happy Hour right in downtown. We walk her from our condo and always enjoy the staff as they are so accommodating. The main dining room is a classic setting with great food. A must go to if you have never been to Portland.

We loved the atmosphere in this little place. Felt very homey and comfortable. We had great service and food was very good. Having been in the service industry I really appreciated the whole experience. If you're in town this is a great local place to check off your list! It's been around for a long time and is highly regarded... More

I tried the "special" pork chop, others the fish stew, mussels starter, the risotto... all good. Absolutely rich wine and beer selection. Not cheap, but well worth it. We were delighted with the service (our waiter was Dave). One item was brought late, with a lot apologies and immediately taken off our bill. They care. Seems three, maximum four tables... More

I go to Higgins frequently before events at the theater nearby and am never disappointed. I have special requirements (no gluten), and they are always very helpful. Their wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Their food is exquisitely prepared, and they are known for their local, fresh produce. It's very small, so if you want to go, make a reservation!

Thank SGSOregon
