A word from Huber's Restaurant
Established in 1879, Huber's is Portland's Oldest Restaurant. It was originally called the "Bureau Saloon". Mr. Huber was involved from the beginning as a bartender, bought out the original owner then changed the name to Huber's.
In the old days if you bought a drink you got a free turkey sandwich. This is how the turkey tradition started. Today Huber's cooks 150 lbs of turkey a day. It's Thanksgiving everyday at Huber's serving a traditional turkey dinner every day. We also serve Certified Angus Beef and fresh seafood. Huber's is also known for its famous Spanish Coffee. The drink is made table-side with great fanfare. It's is a lot of fun and very tasty. Come in and enjoy Old Portland at its best.

    If you want a turkey dinner and it is not Thanksgiving, this is the place to go. Great comfort food. Restaurant has an old charm feel to it. You must order the Spanish coffee for dessert. It is quite a production. Warning, it is very strong!

    This is a different kind of restaurant. Legitimately old, intimate ambience and fun at the same time. The specialize in turkey for some reason and i got a sliced turkey app with delicious and spicy dipping sauce. The seafood Cioppino was the best I have ever had. Beer-attered onion rings were crisp, but deeply tasty. Their drink specialty is Spanish Coffee, a combo of rum, liqueurs, coffee and flames mixed table-side. Would be worth the show even if it didn't taste really good. And it's all amazingly reasonable in price. Highly recommended.

    We had a great time at Huber's, celebrating my husband's birthday. Everything was perfect and beautiful. The service was ace. We will be back for all our special occasions. I love the classic American atmosphere, the bustle, and the energy in the room. Excellent crab cake appetizer! For dinner, I had the Turkey Piccata, which was delightful -- exactly what you want from Piccata. My husband had the garlic chili shrimp, which he enjoyed (they looked perfect).

    Huber's accommodated a very large party (pre-wedding festivities) on no notice whatsoever (turned out that the person who we thought had made lunch plans for the 15 of us had failed to do so; we did not know this until day of). The food and the service was great!

    All good. Food,service, and atmosphere were all top notch. Would certainly recommend to family and friends. Spanish coffee is a must. It really packs a punch! The bill was a little on the high side, but it was worth every penny. Make sure you go during one of the two happy hours offered to save a little cash.

    This was my third Huber's experience - my second time ordering the Rib Eye - and once again I enjoyed the best steak I've ever had. The waiter looked a bit like Fred Armisen mocked up for a Portlandia sketch (and acted the part, too), but I suppose that's only fitting given the location. Huber's claims their specialty is turkey, but I've not been able to talk myself into it knowing the perfection available on the beef menu (I've had the seafood pasta in the past and it was an all-time favorite as well). I also finally ordered a Spanish Coffee, and while you get a dazzling display for your $10, you also get a generous helping of Bacardi. My third perfect meal at Huber's prompted me to write this, my first ever restaurant review.

    I arrived early to meet for drinks. No happy hour drink specials but there was discount food. The spinach dip was so good! We stayed for dinner. I had the half & half (ham & turkey). All very good but I wouldn't call it exceptional. The best part of the dining experience was the atmosphere. It's a beautiful room. Try to get seated in the bar area, which has the stained glass natural light ceiling! I'd go back.

    Huber's never disappoints. We were offered a table in the more historic bar room, but it was a bit noisy so we elected to eat in the more humble front dining room. The food was delightful as always, and watching a waiter make a Spanish Coffee at the table retained its charm and wonder. Service was impeccable, and the turkey was delicious as usual. Just keep in mind Huber's is a "chicken free" zone-- many turkey, meat, and seafood options, but no chicken.

    We had their Filet Mignon topped with Gorgonzola cheese. It was cooked perfectly, tender, and very tasty. My husband and I shared the steak which left room for an appetizer off their Happy Hour menu. The only negative was the noise level, it was a challenge to carry on a conversation without shouting.

    Huber's is my favorite restaurant in Portland! Always outstanding; food beautifully presented. I had the Blackened Salmon Caesar Salad and it was delicious and so very plentiful. My three friends were awed by the ambience and the high quality of service and the beauty of the interior. We all wanted a Spanish Coffee but they had to go back to work so we are coming again in the afternoon for that treat! I eat out often and try many new places and return to old tried and true ones. But I can honestly say Huber's has the number one space in my heart for a special restaurant. I love it!

    We had another excellent meal at Huber's. My only comment is that, because it was a nice evening, we decided to eat outside. This was a mistake because, although it was very nice, the real charm of Huber's is their back room, a beautiful bar that's a classic speakeasy from the prohibition era. So by all means, eat at Huber's, but take advantage of their beautiful indoor ambiance.

    The waiter's attitude needs some re-calibration. A member in my party ordered a rare NY steak. The steak came as medium rare. When complained to the waiter, we were surprised to hear his response as if he was not willing to replace the steak with a rare steak. Any reputable eatery would have voluntarily done so without being told to. But we had to bluntly told the waiter to replace the steak before he would act on it. Quite a great disappointment!!

    We have came to the bar after the blues cruise for years. The group bill has always been a disaster and we nearly changed venues this year. This year for our party of fifteen, the waiter, Chet, volunteered to separate the bills and it was a breath of fresh air. That saved us a lot of confusion, trying to separate the bills ourselves on cell phone calculators. Thanks Chet! We will come back now.

    The wife and I were visiting Portland for the first time and wanted to try someplace unique (to us at least). We were seated and then waited 27 minutes until we were greeted by the server. It is not his fault, as he had to serve at least 20 people by himself. However, that wait is unacceptable and something should be done to rectify a situation where one server is responsible for half the restaurant.

    We've been here a few times over the years and it seems the place is in decline. The turkey was good but not memorable. The restaurant is old as is the building and it is showing it's age. We were seated in the room adjacent to the street. The chairs are old and uncomfortable and the table tops could be refinished. The service was average. This was Father's Day and there was only one server in the room and she was doing her best to keep up. It will be a long while before I give Huber's another chance.

    We chose Huber's originally because of location, but it was fun to experience the restaurant's history and enjoy the environment. The restaurant was packed and vibrant. Although it is the oldest restaurant in Portland, they have maintained it well and the food was excellent. The Spanish coffee and how they make it in front of you is fun. All three of us enjoyed our meals, mine especially which was a Salmon special with a mango salsa, was terrific. We all enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.

    The history of Hubers is interesting however the turkey was not notable and the cioppino was obviously not one of their best. The sauce was bottled and the waiter didn't bring a bowl for the shells. We won't return.
