Very large portions, very filling, and delicious. The hush puppies were perfect...crispy outside soft inside...savory. Battered buttermilk chicken was a favorite at our table. This is restaurant has a loud friendly atmosphere. There is always a line. It is a very popular place. The staff is friendly and efficient.

OMG what a place. We got there dead on opening and there was a queue down the street. The portions are enormous and so delicious! It's impossible to get past the fried chicken, but you must!

Don't expect to go here and talk. The place is crazy loud. I love the food and one time we went for dinner around opening thinking we could enjoy the food and drinks AND some conversation. The first 20 minutes or so were quiet enough then annoying and then intolerable, we texted each other for conversation....... I won't go back.

We were looking forward to visiting Screen Door for brunch as we were visiting from out of state. While the food was excellent, we did not have the best experience with our waitress. There was about a 45 minute wait which was to be expected. The hostess staff were very friendly and the wait went by quickly. After we got... More

Went to this place on a Sunday morning. Man, you need to get there early. We got there around 10am and we did not get in until almost 1pm. Hard to believe, it was actually worth the wait. Great food! They also give you a lot of food. None of us (3 in our party) could even come close to... More

There isn't much on the menu for those health conscious folks but if you're looking to splurge this is the place to do it. Was told this was a must visit place so I went early and checked it off the list. At 9:15 the wait was around 45 minutes. We had the chicken and waffles and split them. Someone... More

We decided to give this place a try when visiting Portland. We got there at 8:45am on a Sunday when they opened at 9am and the line was around the corner and down the block. However this place seats lots of people inside and on the screened in patio, so after waiting 45 minutes or so (I recommend having a... More

My first visit to this place. I'd heard some really good things so I was excited to give it a try. I probably should have looked at the menu ahead of time to give myself a better idea of what I'd like to try. As it is there were 4 of us. Planning to meet there at 9 am when... More

As well reviewed, fried chicken is outstanding... beef brisket is good but the fried oyster is the true winner of the day... you really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu... service is a complement to the experience which makes this a must! Come early as this remains a very, very popular resto amongst locals and visitors like us

This place is incredible. The food is all clearly homemade and so fresh! This is a Portland Must! The wait tends to be long, but don't let it discourage you.
