This place has a good selection of brews and the Mussels are amazing. Try the fries as well. They have a nice outdoor garden area as well. I come here every time I visit Portland.

At first we were taken aback by the dark, narrow pub but soon discovered that the atmosphere and service were friendly. The drinks and food were excellent: pork chop, chicken, mussels. All four of us loved our dinners. Great location.

What a cool spot in downtown with a great patio that they play live music on the weekends and a great atmosphere. Looks like they do movies also and guessing that this would be a hip cool place to go at night.

We had several stops on this night and I remember North 45 had some good food options and drinks. We had a mac and cheese and also some mussels with sourdough. Service was good and prices were as well.

We were at North 45 this afternoon for the first time, celebrating a co-worker's recent wedding. Our group was set up on the patio, which -- even with the gloomy and occasionally wet weather today -- was great. The patio heaters did a fine job of keeping off the chill, and the translucent canopies kept us protected from the elements... More

My coworkers and I visited this pub after work on a sunny afternoon and it was probably one of the best happy hours I have ever had in Portland. The drinks were delicious and the food is great. The pricing was good too for the amount of food and drinks that you got. The patio is blocked in on all... More

This was a real disappointment. We ordered the calamari, and while it was fresh and perfectly prepared the dipping sauce ( we believe because it is the only thing we ate in common) was bad, as my wife took turns in the bathroom all night. I ordered the pork medallions, which were good. But the polenta left something to be... More

My wife and I were craving mussels, so we thought we would check out North 45. What a great find! It is a small pub with lots of charm and character. Lots of soccer memorabilia on the walls and cool old wood bar. We sat at the bar, mostly because it was a busy Saturday night and all the tables... More
