Read the reviews and decided to check it out. Ended up in a booth in the bar - perfect. Friendly, knowledgeable service and an outstanding meal. So enjoyable- highly recommended: outstanding flavors, great wine, quaint setting. Will certainly keep it on our favorites list.

His famous joke complaining about a bad meal:poison I tell you, Poison....and such small portions! The portions at Higgins are not large....but one will not be disappointed with the meal. Service is crisp and professional and the atmosphere bright and cheery.

This place was great. Probably our favorite restaurant on our Portland trip. Salmon was excellent with awesome beer and bourbon selections.

Was looking for a Portland original. Good food, local and unique atmosphere. This did each well. The atmosphere is nice, but no overdone. It is in the heart of downtown Portland and right off the street. Walking distance to most of the major hotels and...More

Came here for lunch with a colleague and glad we did, super lunch. I had the lunch special sandwich which was a riff on a ham and cheese but not typical at all. Thin sliced local ham that had great flavor, I'm not sure what...More

This place is located in the downtown and a fantastic spot for good quality food. My wife had the Mussels cooked in white wine I had the Higgins Burger which had very tasty meat on the inside.

Sorry, I do not know about their Thanksgiving menu, that is if they are even open, best to call. I feel the best time to call is after 2:00 pm, by then the 'lunch' crowd is usually finished and they talk or assist you.
