Description: EastBurn is a Public House where Portlanders gather to share honest food, inspired drinks and hospitality in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Dinner and Brunch are not to be missed. Chef Joseph Dougherty creates dishes that are as delicious as they are inventive and playful. We do a fantastic Happy Hour food menu until 6pm and from 10pm until close. Daily drink specials pull from 19 rotating taps, cocktails featuring locally distilled spirits and 15 wines by the glass from our nitrogen wine keeper. Seek out the courtyard patio, with mosaic fire-tables, swinging chairs, a dart-board, heaters and a closeable roof for year round enjoyment. Test your Skeeball skills in the downstairs Tap Room, find a perfect song on the jukebox or dance to a great DJ. Looking to host a private party or meeting? We have space to accommodate groups of all sizes. Our events annex is great for dinners parties up to 25 and cocktail style receptions for up to 40 people.

We went to East Burn to attend the 4th annual Buckman-Kerns Brewfest. Neither the Oregonian Newspaper or the event posters stated a time. We figured since East Burn was open for lunch we would try our luck after noon.
We had some delicious fries there. Trinity fries are a mixture of hand-cut russets, sweet potatoes, topped with fried leeks accompanied by roasted tomato aioli. They were freshly fried and not greasy. We were indeed in time to try a few beers. I had a Buckman Wild Rice Pilsner while my wife had a Natian Everyday IPA. Gosh they were good tasting beers. Since the fries were a good size amount and we were not driving we decided to have another. Next I tried the Migration PDX Kolsch and my better half had the Cascade Scarlet Fever IPA. These were good as well. I think I liked the Buckman better just because I was intrigued with wild rice in a beer. All the beers went well with the fries. It was certainly a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. I liked the idea of trying several different Portland beers in one place.
Different beers were served upstairs while several others were served downstairs.
Several Breweries were represented Cascade, Natian, Buckman, Migration, Coalition, Basecamp, Lucky Lab, and Burnside.
Our server was quick and very attentive but not intrusive.

Easter brunch brought out the Portlandia weird (lots of zombies in this restaurant this morning), but the food was great! Had the lobster Benedict, elk biscuits & gravy, caprese Benedict & scramble special - all very tasty..... The winner of the morning was the cinnamon roll (w/ bacon bits and drunken raisens) and $2 mimosas, however! Good service, funky atmosphere & we would go back! The back covered patio was a treat (despite weird hanging stuff from the ceiling) & better for our purposes compared to the front/inside tavern feel.... 2 mimosas each, entrees & extra roll for $55. Very pleased....& the SUN was out!

Typically on holiday weekends the wait time in Portland for breakfast exceeds an hour and I'm never willing to wait. At East Burn we waited about 20 minutes and had an excellent breakfast with all the typical salmon and Portland favorites with a tasteful EB twist.

We went here for dinner on a Friday night. Surprisingly we didn't have to wait long and the service and the food was good. The menu was eclectic and the prices are very reasonable! Sit in the patio where tables have swings! Yes swing seats! Very cool and hip east side pub. Live music was setting up as we were leaving :/ . Next time!
