About the restaurant
Family-run restaurants often seem to try a little harder than most, and that’s particularly true at Backwoods Brewing Company. They serve a good selection of wine along with local and seasonal brews. The half logs behind the bar and the wood panels that list available drafts are a nice touch, but the numerous televisions positioned where everyone can see them shows the owners are geared towards making sure no one misses the game. Traditional buffalo is their only wing selection, but thanks to their house made sauce, they’re certainly some of the best wings in Portland. Guests can then choose between a variety of burgers, sandwiches, wraps and salads.

About the restaurant
One may not expect to find some of the best wings in Portland in one of the city's finest sushi bars, but that's exactly what Yama Sushi & Izakaya accomplishes. Their wings are baked and come equipped with Japanese seasoning. Even though they're delicious, however, guests shouldn't overlook the seafood ramen, tuna poke, jalapeno hamachi carpaccio or impressive selection of sushi. All of these are delicious options and can be enjoyed surrounded by large Asian lanterns, cute Maneki-neko cats, intricate battle murals and unique lighting.

About the restaurant
A swanky menu is promised at Bottle + Kitchen Restaurant, and first-time visitors will immediately see that this carries over into the décor. Teal carpeting, vibrantly colored chairs and artwork, vintage lighting, an intricate ceiling design and one of the most unique entry chandeliers ever help to explain why this eatery frequently shows up on Instagram. Toss in the fried chicken sliders, fish tacos, crab crostini and some of the best wings in Portland – featuring sriracha lime or sweet chili – and this place is amazing from start to finish.

Promising the best Indian food in Downtown Portland, East India Co. Grill & Bar transports their guests right to New Delhi. An intricate skylight, traditional music and paintings celebrating a modern Genesh serve to present an authentic environment. Time-tested recipes form an impressive menu that includes Kati rolls, Goan fish curry, Malai kofta and Tandoori chicken. Their Masala wings are among the best wings in Portland, and they taste perfect with any of the signature cocktails or wide selection of beer.

About the restaurant
Those seeking a stellar Happy Hour need to visit Claim Jumper at least once. The discounts go from 3 pm to closing time on the weekdays. This means guests can admire the antler chandelier, vintage wall art and rustic architecture without constantly watching the clock. Patrons luckily get a deep discount on some of the best wings in Portland – in mild, spicy or Asian sauce – if they show up during these hours. Even if the timing is wrong, though, the wings, fish tacos, buffalo chicken wrap and Widow Maker Burger are well worth the expense.

Server was very friendly and attentive. Food came out very fast, even though we were a large party. We ordered some items to go at the end of our meal, and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast the order was ready.

About the restaurant
The award-winning pizzas served at The Star are enough to attract the most committed foodie in Portland, but their hard work doesn't stop there. Oven roasted cauliflower, a variety of salads, burrata caprese and some of the best wings in Portland are also available. Their spicy baked wings come with dry spice rub that cuts down on the need for Wet-Naps. The majestic mural behind the bar, old-school luxury seating and over-the-top chandeliers create a unique atmosphere that no other eatery has replicated.

Great service, lovely menu and atmosphere. Deep dish pizza is delish with many choices for toppings. Nice cocktail, beer and wine menu. Fun place to enjoy with family and friends.

About the restaurant
Lovers of local brew will have 12 options on tap and in bottles when they visit Tanner Creek Tavern. These all go down great with their duck wings – covered in gochujang BBQ sauce – for a combination of Pacific Northwestern beer and some of the best wings in Portland. Guests will have to check the tavern menu for these, and they'll also come across daily soup options, lamb meatballs, creamy mushroom pizza and the Tavern Burger. The décor is that of a high-end tavern, and it includes fine art pieces, fancifully distressed walls and basic yet contemporary seating.

About the restaurant
High atop the iconic Meier & Frank building sits Departure Restaurant – a concept that offers panoramic views of the city along with contemporary Asian cuisine. Those who sit on the exterior deck get an eyeful, but everyone inside is privy to hip decor that includes fancy chandeliers, a giant map of the Sea of Love, historic dresses hung on the walls and an overall contemporary feel. The menu is just as impressive and features smoked octopus, roasted stripe bass, skirt steak and some of the best wings in Portland – covered in sweet chili glaze.

Comfort Food
About the restaurant
Most eateries have promotions meant to bring in guests, but none come close to what is offered at Brix Tavern. Every Wednesday night, guests flip a coin with their server. If they win, they immediately receive a gift card equal to their tab’s value. This means patrons could potentially have some of the best wings in Portland – featuring pickled veggies and smoked tomato aioli – for absolutely free. Pool tables and dart boards offer patrons excitement, but relaxing in the Whiskey Room is just as appealing.

Biscuits and gravy were the best I’ve ever had. The chicken sandwich was delish and the free donuts topped it off. Would certainly return if I’m ever in the area again.
