Wow! Went there twice for breakfast during my week long visit to Portland. Great food, nice atmosphere and friendly service. Mid-week was great and no wait. On Saturday, it was very bust but the line moved quickly and the food was worth the wait. We had a great time and would go back again.

This hidden little restaurant is now so popular that it does not take reservations, but people place their names on the wait list and often remain in the vicinity for hours to enjoy the myriad culinary delights here. The menu is always changing. However, the praline pecan waffles are incomparable. The chicken entrees are also delightful. All portions are quite... More

This very popular restaurant is worth whatever wait may be required. This is good southern food but bring your appetite as the servings are huge at least from my perspective. Service was pretty good considering how busy it was. I will definitely be going back to try other items on the menu.

I've been to screen door 3 times. I only remember having the bananas fosters French toast and it was great. But this time around, I thought I'd write a review. Man...I was very pleased. I started with the fried okra. It was a little steep in price - $7.50 - as an appetizer. I'd recommend they serve it as a... More

Bring your appetite with you because the portions are HUGE. This is a popular eatery in Portland. It's not huge and is generally very busy, so be prepared to wait a while for a seat. Once you're seated, wait a while longer. It's worth the pay off because the food is crazy good. I heard about the Chicken & Waffles,... More

Southern meets west coast. In 3 days of a wine & dine vacation our favorite meal. Seating option includes an enclosed porch which is quite comfortable on a rainy October day. We enjoyed hush puppies with smoked cheddar and bacon, chicken with a sweet potatoe waffle, biscuits & gravy. You know a good thing when there is a strong local... More

We only had one night in Portland before flying home and we luckily stumbled upon The Screen Door. It's true what the reviews say- it's busy but worth waiting if you need to. The chicken was delicious. We enjoyed Sam, the bartender. And David, the owner, was incredibly cordial and kind. They made you feel like you were a regular.... More

What a fabulous place for breakfast. The menu was traditional and unique!! The praline bacon and waffle was a killer. The pimento, sausage,egg and buttermilk biscuit sandwich was one of the best I've had. Can't wait to try it for lunch !!

when we get there, it was 15 min earlier than opening hour. there were line for the screen door. We were thinking it must be good. Yes, it was good place to eat for dinner with friends. Only downside for us, the light was too dark and it was for the young people's environment. We taking our parent there she... More
