About 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.

Originally we had a very unresponsive server but another server recognized our angst and saved the evening.
Food was comforting and our final server provided exceptional service.

The noise level was very high...I couldn't hear the piano which is one reason I chose to come on that Sunday.....the reservations were made through Open Table and made for some confusion..we were told we had not reserved a table but we were finally able to be seated.

This was our second time to eat here. We had to ask for dinning utensils after the house bread was brought to our table. We were never asked if we wanted an additional drinks. We were very disappointed in our visit this time. After all was finished the bill was brought to us and had to wait 15min before it was picked up to pay our tab. Not a good visit. Sorry 😐

My husband and I were visiting the area and thought it would be a nice spot for lunch but it was the most terrible food and service we had our whole trip. Ordered 2 monte cristos and they weren't deep fried at all nor was the cheese melted and no raspberry jam. Server was pre-occupied the whole time and we had to get the hostess to help us get refills and a check and to check out. Even if we had ordered something different, I don't think they would've been able to produce anything I would've liked to eat. Low quality of food and service.

Had friends from New Jersey in town, wanted to share one of Portland’s best spots, in my opinion. They loved it! So nostalgic, took ya right back to a speakeasy in the 1930’s. I have always loved Huber’s for their Spanish Coffee. My friend had never had one before. What a treat it was to have it flamed at tableside. She thought it was most delicious and is now a Spanish coffee fan. Dinner was excellent as always. Thank you Hubers for a magical evening with my out of town guests.

We celebrated Friends' Thanksgiving Saturday after the holiday. We sat in the bar and had a great time. We were grateful to be against the back wall in a booth, because the sound level is always high in the restaurant. Ryan was our server and he was delightful! We gave him quite a bit of flack, and he took it on, very graciously!! Of course, no Huber's dinner is complete without a Spanish coffee - which is always a work of art!

It wasn't until I entered the restaurant that I was reminded of why I had not eatenat Huber's for 5 years or more. It began with the dance of where to seat me, a person not only with a reservation, but a person with a reservation who had been called 2 hours earlier by the restaurant and told that I "would be seated in the new side, at a booth." In spite if having this as a voice-to-print voicemail in hand, when I got there the hostess started the "what's your name" game and sent me and my guest to the bar (old side), where there were no booths available, few seats, and horrendous noise. The host on the bar side excused himself to go ask the other (earlier) hostess where they would seat me AND MY GUEST, who was trailing along behind as we went from one side of the restaurant to the other...should have left then. He proceeds to show us to a very tiny table and I mention that I was promised a booth...and there were two unoccupied booths. I went to the hostess stand (previous rude one) and said we would like one of the booths. She nastily replied that they were "reserved" (hmmm, perhaps one was for me?) and said we would have to leave by 8pm if we sat there. Should've left then. The saving graces for my dinner were: 1) the waitress who was sympathetic and joyous--upon hearing of our troubles, she said she would do everything she could to make the rest of our visit a great one, and 2) I had a gift card. I will never spend my money at Huber's for a meal again. Portland has problem with overt racism, and at Huber's you can see it alive and well-oiled. The coup-de-gras? I called at 6 to confirm and was told again, to support the voicemail, that I had a booth in the restaurant and to let them know we would be a few minutes late. She (whoever that was), noted this and said "we'll see you soon." Yes, you did, but you won't see me again.

The turkey dinner was good. Our waitress was good.
But when we first arrived, as I was standing near the hostess station (in the main dining room at back of restaurant), at least 4 staff members breezed past and completely ignored me. No hostess in sight. No acknowledgement for 10 minutes, so I gave up and went to the front of the restaurant where I was able to get a wait staff's attention.

The turkey drumsticks appeared steamed rather than roasted. Overall the food was rather tasteless and served barely warm at best. Service was excellent as was the Spanish coffee!

We went to Hubers for dinner the day after Thanksgiving because they offer turkey all year round. My husband and sister had the turkey dinner and loved it. I had the chili prawns and they were great! The food was cooked to perfection and seasoned nicely. Our server, Leo, was charming and attentive. Definitely have the beer bread! It is sensational and it was all I could do to just have one piece. The restaurant has a wonderful vintage charm and warm ambience. The only thing I wish they would add would be some great vegetarian and vegan offerings to the menu. I normally eat vegetarian, but Fettucine Alfredo is the only vegetarian entree, and I'm lactose intolerant, so that wasn't an option for me. Their current menu is executed beautifully. I would just love to see them broaden their offerings to include vegetarians or vegans.

The guy at the entrance needs to smile, adopt a welcoming manner. The gal filling our water glasses displayed more perceptiveness and friendliness than the waitress. But the space is historic and beautiful and the food was fine.

Huber's is a Portland classic, opening in 1879. The decor pulls you back into another era, but the food is in the here and now. The restaurant is known for its roast turkey dinners and Spanish coffees. We ordered both and were not disappointed. We finished with an excellent slice of pumpkin pie.

Absolutely horrible. They gave away our table when we were early, not a huge deal but just the beginning. Second we were seated and waited 10 minutes for menus, once our waitress finally came over she had a fit about how we didn’t get our menus and that made her job more work. The food did come quickly, which was great, but we were not given silverware, waited for 10 minutes again for any waiter to bring some (asked multiple times). My husband ordered a drink and never received it. My husbands food was bland with no flavor, we never saw our waitress again to ask or get help. I went to use the restroom and it was utterly disgusting, toilet paper all over the floor and just filthy; I ran out quick. We were very excited for Huber’s as it had been recommended to us multiple times and now we will NEVER return and will not recommend to anyone.

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. You step inside and it feels like you’ve been transported back in time to the 1920’s. And you have to have the Spanish Coffee! It is a performance all on its own-amazing! The staff was super attentive and the food was delicious with decent portions. I can’t wait to pay Huber’s another visit!

It was fun to see a place that's been around so long and yet is still so busy and cheerful. (It's a little odd that the front room - with windows on the street - was empty while the back room, with the great décor was cheerfully busy; apparently a deliberate arrangement by management.) We had a good meal with attentive service. I'd go back.
