The food was great. I had
The food was great. I had the Cheeseburger and my boyfriend had the Ubersondvich. It was amazing. Beer selection is terrific. The atmosphere is great althought it is EXTREMELY loud in the dining room. There was a table of 8 gals next to us and we could barely carry on a conversation.
Overall, I would highly recommend East Burn. Great find!

Our first time eating at East
Our first time eating at East Burn and our first time eating dinner from swinging chairs hanging from the ceiling! We ordered several small plates and really took a liking to the tempura brie and the tuscan white bean spread. Nice to see lots of great options for vegetarians. Good beer, good food, good service, good time.

Great Addition to East Burnside
Enjoyed our Sunday Brunch so much that we returned for Happy Hour a few days later.
Great Bloody Mary's - although house mix has beef stock which is fully disclosed as not vegetarian.
The staff was very friendly & accommodating.

First great experience!
Took my mom here for her birthday, was hoping to find a place with great food (nothing too crazy, but fresh food made right) and an excellent tap list. East Burn definitely delivered on both of those for us. Our server Brandon was great, he walked us through the menu and even got us to try some stuff we might not have been adventurous enough to try without his reassurance. At one point the owner even came over and wished my mom a happy birthday and thanked us for coming in. The staff were all genuinely nice and helpful,we had multiple different staff members come to our table and drop off beers, pick up plates, etc, and they all were kind and made us feel welcome. My mom even liked it so much we booked a table on the app for Mother's Day!

AMAZING "undiscovered" Brunch place
I've been here before for the Happy Hour and thoroughly enjoyed it, but was downright blown away by the brunch. This is one of the few places in Portland that can cook brisket properly! The atmosphere was a little barren inside for brunch, I'd say (given that it's more functionaly a bar), but everything else was 5+ stars! The service was truly fantastic--they even offered a free round of homemade scones for the mother's day event. I will definitely return.

Kid friendly for 7+
My sisters and I took our mom their for mothers day and we took 4 kids. They all had fun in the swinging chairs! They are naturally pretty well behaved so they knew not to go nuts. The whole staff was really great. They were on top of our orders and super efficient without out being a bit uptight. I loved the Brie and the desserts. (we all split a few). I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at what a nice experience it was.

About ten of us girl went to East Burn for brunch. The menu has something for every type of diet preference and the food is simply delish. The service was prompt and the prices are reasonable. Overall I was very happy with the dinning experience and highly recommend this spot.

East Burn is sooooo hot it's smokin
We took my father there for father's day. It was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. My dad ordered the Wild Boar ribs as did I. My girlfriend ordered the Lobster Mac N Cheese and we also got a plate of the Steelhead. Our one complaint was the Steelhead was overcooked and dry. Everything else was outstanding. The wine list was decent as was the beer selection. The atmosphere was fairly quiet. The decor was simple with some nice art pieces and some unexpected twists.....like the hanging seating. Our waiter was knowledgeable and accommodating. We will definitely be going back!

Went to East Burn on the recommendation of open table. What a great find. We brought friends with us which can be dicey to bring others to an unknown restaurant. It was fabulous!! The food was excellent! The beer menu was outstanding and we all agreed we would go back.

Great place to gather with Friends
Enjoy East Burn and the staff. Staff is very friendly and service is wonderful. Had a small group of friends meet up for brunch outside in the patio area. Fun, relaxing, and good food shared amongst good friends.

A pleasure every time
We make it to EastBurn about 2-3 times a year. This most recent time was for my partner's birthday, and it was yet again, a wonderful dining experience. We had reserved a table for 10 on a Friday night. When we arrived, it was ready for us. The server was awesome and she was very attentive. She seemed very good at her job, from taking our drink orders to our our food and the timing. And she was super nice and friendly, a huge plus in my book! Plus, the manager also stopped by several times and helped/checked in on us. They even helped with serving the cupcakes we brought for the birthday celebration. The food was wonderful, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere very laid back. Thanks, again, EastBurn!

No burn at EastBurn
First visit to this restaurant; I needed seating for 8 at 8 PM and they had an open table. We were welcomed as we arrived and our table was ready. Knowledgeable waitron gave us the special spiel and took drink & appetizer order. Dinner orders flowed easily as the appetizers arrived. The whole experience felt effortless: a sure sign that someone is working hard.
The food is great! tho prices are low. (Not a complaint) We shared around so I got to taste great pub food. My Columbia River steelhead was prepared at a much higher level than "pub food" sitting on a bed of edamame succotash and cooked to perfection: moist and firm, but still vibrant. I'll go here again.

We made a reservation for 7 people and they had us all set up inside, but it was such a nice day that when we got there that we requested to sit outside, which they promptly accommodated. The food was good and the service was great! This place is really fun! Between the downstairs arcade/bar/skee-ball and a bean bag toss outside, there's always something to do while you wait for food :)

Great Birthday Brunch
We went to Eastburn on a Sunday morning for brunch to celebrate my husband's birthday.
The first plus was that they took reservations for brunch.
The service was fast and friendly.
They give you mini scones when you arrive!
The $2 mimosas are hard to beat!
The benedict special was out of this world.
Everyone afterwards stated that they really enjoyed their breakfast, and would be coming back again!

I had a really nice time there. My waitress was super awesome. Very attentive and upbeat. I have gone to East Burn multiple times before, but I think I will make it more of a regular thing. Food was great!

All around great experience
Made a reservation because we had 5 adults and 2 kids (3 and 5 years old) and of course needed a larger table. Service was fantastic, the food was amazing (I'm still dreaming about the sweet potato fries, we got almost all the small plates for the kids and adults to share and every one was a winner. I'm not a meat eater but my mom said the fish special was amazing.) Service was great. It was a little loud but not overcrowded early on a Thursday evening.

My roommate suggested this place as a good place to take a date and he was right. The ambience was fancy but not too fancy and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this place

We were visiting Portland for our anniversary and had dinner here our first night. I had the steel-head and my husband had the boar stroganoff. Both were outstanding (mine was our favorite though!) The waiter, Brandon, was attentive and very informative about the food. We returned a few days later, for drinks the downstairs bar (where the bartender remembered us from our earlier visit). Wish we had a place like this close to home - we would be regulars!

Our New Fav!
My husband and I love trying new places. We love food, we love good wine and we love Portland's food scene! EastBurn did not disappoint us!
The Wild Boar Stroganoff was creamy, rich and delightful, the Lobster Mac & Cheese was sweet and cheesy and we loved the variety of wine available by the glass - the petit syrah was PERFECT!
Kudos, EastBurn. We will be back! Thank you, Open Table!

Bobcat on the bobcatio.
Get bobcat as your server, and you will have a great time, not only is he an awesome server, he makes you feel welcome and comfortable.
ELK gravey and biscuits, OMG!!!!!
You will go into a food coma after eating this gift from the food gods.
If you order this, don't order anything else.
But all the food is incredible and very reasonable.
