Description: The amazingly fresh seafood and produce of the Pacific Northwest, along with Chef Ryan's passion and innovative culinary vision, delivers a meal that is both distinctive and delicious to the table at Southpark Seafood. The beautiful 13 seat oyster bar sports the largest selection of oysters in Portland with over a dozen varieties available every day. All of the seafood we sell are fished or farmed in ways that minimize their environmental impact. Located in the heart of Portland's Cultural District, Southpark Seafood is the window into Downtown Portland and the perfect place to relax while taking in it's vibrant energy. Southpark Seafood also offers a $5 Happy Hour with full portion menu items at only $5 each and a selection of bar menu items at $5 off their normal price. Happy Hour is available at the Oyster Bar, on the Patio or in the Bar, 3-6 and 10-midnight every day.

“Seafood in center of Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Great ambiance and selection of seafood. Nice collection of fresh oysters from various NW locations. Service was very nice, although some items got forgotten, but we ordered too much and were not charged for the forgotten items, so no foul.

Nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous étiez déçus de notre menu et les coquilles Saint-Jacques de la baie avec Maison Made Fettuccini. Il est vrai, nous sommes un restaurant de fruits de mer plus contemporaine, apportant une touche de créativité à la mer durables que nous servons. Je souhaite que nous aurions pu aider à trouver quelque chose que vous avez apprécié. S'il vous plaît accepter nos excuses.
Cordialement,
Jason Gerlt - GM

“Excellent bartenders”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Both Shannon and Will at the bar are great. I hit a few happy hours while in Portland on business, and the bar scene was welcoming, relaxing, and fun. The nibbles were very good (especially the tuna tartare) & the cocktails were well done. The bar staff makes the place, though....they deserve high praise.

“Wonderful experience and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Want to do an oyster tasting with your wine tasting? You are in the right restaurant. So many good choices so plan on relaxing and having a great experience. Don't forget to have the chowder. Haven't had your favorite fish lately? They will have it in season. Wonderful menu!

“yummy and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

The food and bar here are outstanding. Service was exceptional, too. Kitchen was accommodating to my vegetarian requests, and all ingredients were the freshest. Best sidecar in town! Went there almost every day while in Portland. Can't recommend highly enough!

“Serene, relaxing atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

Weather permitting ask to sit outside. The waiter was excellent to take care of all my requests. I was hungry for a hamburger. They have a wonderful menu selection; but, I was craving an excellent burger. And South Park did not disappointment me. They even substituted a house salad for the French fries. I am trying to eat healthy. So the salad justified the burger. Do give the restaurant a try. You will not be disappointed.

Hi Peggy, You are not the only one who is loving our Laney Family Farms Burger! The secret is in the quality beef that comes from a combination of 7 different steak cuts. Supporting local family farms and ranchers is just another reason to justify having a burger at Southpark!
Thanks again, Jason - GM
