My experience was that this is a very old school Portland restaurant with respect to the clientele, food, service, and ambience. The food itself was good but not outstanding. Also social distancing could have been improved.

Tables are well spaced to allow social distancing. The selection of appetizers and main courses was as good as ever, and the food was excellent. A very welcome and encouraging break from the routine in this pandemic era.

My wife and I have been dinning here for more than fifteen years. I'm not a big fish guy, but Higgins is the place to eat fish...absolute perfection. Higgins is the gold standard for PNW dinning and the quality of the wait staff is second to none.

So happy for Higgins to be open again. The food was excellent as always, and although it felt a little strange to be so spread apart from other diners, it is of course necessary.

This was my first time to go to a nice restaurant since my wife of 49 years passed away in April. This was a restaurant we went to many times before covid and it has maintained it high standards for food, service and ambiance. Thank you Higgins for making my 72nd birthday a nice one to remember.

Higgins has had to remove some seating in the bar area, but as far as food, drinks, overall quality, it is still my favorite place to eat.

With downtown business destroyed by the Mayor's policies, parking is actually quite easy.

Make a reservation. Higgins still the best place in town.

Consistent preparation and delivery of very high quality farm to fork food is the hallmark of Higgins. The wine and beer selection is extraordinary. The mixed drinks pours are generous. Portland has many choices of restaurants but this place is not to be missed. With no disappointments it has been my go-to-special-occasions-place since 1994.

Ordered a salmon burger. Didn’t like toasted bread. Would have preferred a bun. Salad needed more dressing. Do you make potato salad?

We went to Higgins Piggins for an early Sunday lunch for my daughters birthday. The service and our server were excellent. The day was a little cool, so would have been nice if heaters would have been on, but we lived thru it and had a very pleasant lunch. Kind of wished that they would have presented a birthday cookie of something since they do ask what the occasion is on your reservation. but overall the food was wonderful, service excellent, and hour and a half that we spent there were a great way to celebrate the day!
