“Great place to watch sports”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I wanted to watch the UFC and Stanley Cup Final while also meeting friends for drinks and dinner. Blitz was perfect. They had lots of TVs with sports, a good beer selection, and a staff who kept my beer full. It's a great place to check out for sports in Portland.

“A comfortable place to get some good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

My colleague and I were preparing for a big meeting the following day and wanted to just get some real regular food. We wandered downtown and while Portland provides ample choices for different kinds of foods served in varying atmospheres, nothing was quite making the grade. After wandering for a while, we found Blitz and had a great time while enjoying the Blackhawks game on their various tvs. The staff was good, the food was good, and the overall experience was great.

“Casual and Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

There are no strangers in Portland, especially at the Blitz Bar. The patrons, the staff and people on the street were all incredibly nice. The mood was festive, relaxed and the energy of Blitz was about enjoying yourself. There's shuffle board, pool tables, tons of tv's for any sports event you might want to catch. Eventhough the Blitz was busy yet the service was incredible. It was a great last minute change in our get together plans! I'll be back.

“Will Return, Very Nice Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Met my girl at the Blitz to watch to political debates last night, and was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is a pub, but it didn't feel like a pub. The service as on point, they were so attentive and helpful...love love love good service.

The cocktails and food was just yummy. I had a homemade turkey soup that I could have swam in it was so good. The waitress was helpful when asked which was better on the menu, big thumbs up on the spicy sausage!

We will be going back there for the VP debates too :) Check the Blitz out!

“Great place to eat, drink and watch sports on TV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

My wife and I have gone to the Blitz Ladd many times and have never been disappointed here. We haven't gone to the other Blitz which is in the Pearl district of Portland. The Blitz Ladd is located on 2239 SE 11th Avenue. They open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, probably to accommodate people who want to watch football games, both college and professional, that often begin by that time if the games are being played in the East due to the time difference. The Blitz Ladd has a huge amount of high quality TV's, enough of them where regardless of where a customer is sitting, he or she would be able to watch. One thing that is especially appealing to us about the Blitz Ladd is the Ohio State Alumni Association gets together there for all Ohio State Buckeyes football games on Saturdays which brings in a large crowd of Buckeyes fans. My wife was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio so needless to say, she's a huge Buckeyes football fan. We travel all the way from east of Vancouver, Washington to come to the Blitz Ladd for these Buckeyes football games and to be with so many other Buckeyes fans. It's a LOT of fun! The Blitz Ladd is listed as a pub since they do serve food, in addition to drinks. We have had their food many times and have always enjoyed it there. They have a farily large menu and many of the items are healthy which might seem surprising for a pub. They also have an all you can eat brunch buffet on Saturday mornings and I believe Sundays as well. Occasionally, we have noticed parking can be a bit diffucult, especially when there are big sporting events going on, but we have always found a parking space within a couple of blocks from the Blitz Ladd and the parking around there is free. Parking there is definitely not as bad as the downtown area of Portland. We understand the Blitz Ladd is the largest bar in the state of Oregon. We have never had trouble finding a seat at the Blitz Ladd and were never forced to sit at the bar due to a lack of tables. By the way we have used coupons from restaurant.com for the Blitz Ladd which has saved us a lot of money. I appreciate the fact the Blitz Ladd is lised in restaurant.com. Most restaurants are NOT in there.
