Comfort Food
Already open eight 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.

Brix is wonderful for brunch or dinner! I recommend the coconut shrimp for sure :)

The food was amazing. Service was very good but overextended, which is understandable given staffing shortages everywhere. Cocktails were great and affordable since happy hour lasted until 6:30.

The fish and tots were great. The Truffle Mac and cheese was perfection. We loved the wings and coconut shrimp appetizers. The Brix chips were really good.

If you go for brunch, look out for warm donuts. If you go for lunch/dinner, try the crab and shrimp cakes - AMAZING.

The food was bland. The bottomless mimosas are tiny, and the waitress didn’t come back to refill mine until the meal was done. Very disappointed.

We overall had a good time on our double date. My food was burnt and the kitchen caught it before it even came out, but I appreciated the attentiveness and that they remade my food. Everyone else said their food was exceptional. They were in a rush though and it came out undercooked - still yummy, though. The table next to us was celebrating a 21st birthday and the patrons were extremely loud and it made it hard to hear each other at all. When we first got there, one of the girls was eating butter off the floor. It also seemed that a staff member knew them so was perhaps hesitant to tell them to quiet down. I might give them another try at a time when they aren’t as busy.

This was our first post-pandemic experience, and it felt great. Good vibe even with capacity limitations. Food was very good, service friendly and pretty prompt, and it just felt like everyone was happy to be there!

The food was good nothing outstanding. I was a bit disappointed with the pasta with butter that my granddaughter has. A very small bowl of pasta with melted butter. No offer of maybe a bit of parm cheese. She finished it in two minutes.

They always give us crappy seats even when we request to be by the window. Hit or miss if you get a good server and the hostess always seem to have a chip on their shoulder. Used to be a favorite place, but haven’t really had the best experiences the last 3 times we went. If my husband didn’t like the fried chicken so much, we pretty much wouldn’t go here.

Good atmosphere, tasty food, enjoyable cocktails. Pleasantly surprised at how robust the menu was… Most places have scaled-back their offerings to a pandemic version, but Brix had a lot of options.

I ordered the “bubbles for every bite” and definitely didn’t get bubbles for every bite.... the servers were very stingy with the mimosas and some of them were literally mostly OJ... not once during my meal was I asked if I needed anything or if everything was okay....
but I do love the food here.

First time visiting Portland. Brix was a nice surprise. Didn’t expect it to be Happy Hour all day (which was nice!). Food and drinks were served fast, our server was attentive. It just took several minutes to get our order; not sure if it was because they were short staffed, but once it was taken everything was fine. The fondue and Brie chips were delish!
