Comfort Food
Already open six years and counting, this neighborhood establishment is still a go-to for easy drinking, a variety of plates, and overall good times. The frequently updated event calendar keeps the door swinging, and new friends the regulars are always bringing.

Ideal for large groups, the menu features seasonal, global-inspired tavern fare, extensive craft beer offerings and original handcrafted cocktails.

Early and late happy hours keep guests glued to their seats as they get caught up on the latest sports games airing all around the restaurant, and the daily food and drink specials keep locals and visitors alike coming back again and again.

And have you heard the talk about brunch? Those donuts though.

Took a bit to get our initial drink and food orders. Generally, good was good. Eggs could be more flavorful. Would also have not put eggs on top of a waffle, but not a big deal. Overall good experience. Love those donuts. Liked being able to watch football and drink mimosas. Can’t beat that.

It was nice, accommodating for 8 of us. Pretty pricey for dinner so we chose Happy Hour instead. Ended up being alright. I personally had the ribs on the HH menu, they were horrible! I could barely cut through them, flavor was gross, super salty, bbq sauce was way overwhelming, coleslaw with it was then flavorless. Caesar salad was semi crisp lettuce, over dressed and way too much cheese. I don't know what anyone at my table thought, I'd go for HH again, but now know what not to order and how to order it. Dressing on the side always, stay away from the ribs!

We had 11 people and were seated on time. Our server was amazing and made the whole experience wonderful. Food tasted great and everyone enjoyed their meals, including three children (8, 6, 6). Overall experience was great and we will definitely be back soon!

Had a 5:45 reservation. Took 20 mins to even get water, 45 mins to place our order, and another hour wait for our food. Ate at 7:30. No idea how good the food was, as we inhaled it, since we were starving and late for our 7:30 concert.

Arielle was our server and we had an AMAZING time. We were 12 giggly bachelorette party girls and I was half expecting an eyeroll from entire staff. Instead, we had an amazing server who was energetic, super funny and really good at her job. Food was fantastic (especially for price), with lots of options for everyone. Our drinks were never less than half full before Arielle asked if we needed a refill, and everything came out in a super timely manner. She split our checks no problem (another thing that made things so much easier for us), and had a great bar recommendation for after! Usually dinner is just sort of something you have to do on these types of trips but our trip to Brix totally enhanced our entire evening! Thank you Arielle and Staff!

Very busy Sunday brunch time. Waitress seemed a bit detached. When ordering bottomless mimosas and food is slow to arrive it might be nice to offer juice or coffee in the interim since they apparently can’t refill your glass until food arrives...one order was completely wrong but they corrected it in pretty short order....bacon not crisp as requested, coffee refill never came. Overall a “C”.

Food and drinks were good however we did have to move tables due to the air conditioning dripping on the table - and us. Our waitress closed our drink tab and had to move us to a different server when we moved tables, which was a shame. Our original table and another one right under the line of the drips were never turned on a busy Friday night.

First time here. Overall very good. Wings were awesome and my so really liked the fried chicken sandwich. But they brought him his food well before my salad. Waited 10-15 min for a quinoa salad that was mainly undressed arugula so I’m not sure what the wait was. Will probably give them another try but not the quinoa salad.

Pleasant enough place for a quick bite or a beer; just don't set your expectations too high for the food or service. Everyone is nice enough and attempts to be accommodating; they're just not always totally competent. Got one of our orders wrong and took a long time to bring the replacement item. Orange juice was clearly past its pull date and beginning to go bad. Avocado was left off of the Benedict, then what was put on had black streaks in it, indicating it was oxidizing. Place is loud, with high ceilings, which means if your party has more than four people, you won't be able to converse with people at the other end of the table. The place has been around for a while. It's time for them to do a refresh to update their quality standards and processes to be competitive in a food scene like Portland's.

Waitress was snarky after we asked her to check the wine vintage brought to our table v. the one noted on the menu. She handled very poorly. After pretty much ignoring us the rest of the meal and then didn't ask if we wanted dessert (we did, so went somewhere else). Two of three food entrees were higher on check than on menu but we didn't want to fight her about it. Gave 10% tip v. usual 20%, something we hate doing. But on vacay and didn't want to argue.

One of our favorite places to eat. Always go for the chicken pot pie. Best I've ever had. Rich and creamy gravy, vegetables and a perfect brown and crispy crust. And the salad that comes with it is always fresh and crisp. 5 stars forever!

This is our “go to” for dinner before a play and it is always a great experience. The Happy Hour food is delicious and the service is friendly and efficient.
