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.

  • Our Kind of Place!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    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!

    The waiter was good but not real friendly. He was not unpleasant but just did not smile. It may have been that you guys were busy but the guy that made the coffee at the table did not smile either even though he was very talented.

    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.

  • Third Time, Still a Charm
    LongTimeEater
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    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.

    Good food and a neat setting made for a great experience after rolling the dice judging from reviews and pics on the Open Table app. Service was fast and friendly and if you order the Spanish coffee you get a little table side show! We didn't have desert as we were headed to VooDoo.

    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.

    my companions ordered the turkey special which they said was wonderful-just like Thanksgiving. I had the halibut with lemon butter sauce, but the sauce had either flour or corn starch as a thickener and it was really disappointing--too thick and not much flavor.

    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.

    Our hostess, Chelsey, placed us ( reservation ) at a small table in a dark corner where the table light was burnned out, and the table was rocky, with only three legs touching the floor at once. Once we requested a different table, that hostess turned rude. Although the restaurant was noty busy or full, it took a long time to be waited on. I ordered a salad with my dinner but it didn't come out until I was half done with my entree. Otherwise the food was great. They did not charge me for the late salad. This is a great little restraunt with rich history and this visit was out of the norm for them.

    As a native Portlander, Hubers has always held a special place in my heart-and my stomach. The building that Hubers is in has a rich history having survived floods during the last century. Huge stained glass ceiling, arches behind the old time bar. Famous Spanish Coffee. But most all, delicious turkey dinners year around. That's why I took my daughter there because it's one of her favorite places. We went during the lunch hour and surprisingly it wasn't busy, so we had a nice, quiet time together. I bought an extra turkey dinner to go for my partner and she loved it. If you've never been to Hubers you really need to go. Plus, it appeared in an episode of Grimm!

    Our waiter, Carl, was great. The food was wonderful...our table of eight had nothing but compliments for their individual meals. I had the Beef Stroganoff & it was excellent. The bread served with the meal (I think it was beer bread) was extremely tasty, but I wish it had come to us warm. It was at room temperature & I think that's how they always serve it. A bread warmer in the kitchen would be a good investment for this restaurant.

    Huber's is a well-known, historic restaurant in Portland. Our overall impression was that it really hasn't changed for a long time, which probably makes old-time Portlanders happy, but it doesn't come close to matching many of the restaurants that have cropped up in the last 15 years. The food was very heavy, and the service was decent. I'm glad I went, just to experience it, but I have no plans in going again.
