About

To be honest, the view came first. There aren't many places that command the vantage point we enjoy here at King Tide Fish & Shell, so we like to make sure it lives up to Portland.

We do that with a blend of the traditional and the non, the comfortable and the slightly twisted, the satisfying food and the swinging drink.

King Tide Fish & Shell embraces the Shared Plate philosophy that encourages more people to enjoy more flavors in more ways than any single plate can accommodate. And because we're Portland, we make it as local as possible. When we see water we think fish, so you'll find plenty of it on our menu. Basically, we just like to keep it fresh.

King Tide Fish & Shell is where food & drink & people always complement each other, and everything goes with the view.

Restaurant was beautiful inside and had a lovely view of the water, ambiance was lovely. Food was nice a bit overpriced for portion sizes and drinks were very small pours so that was disappointing. Overall it’s worth a visit maybe if the drinks could be a bit more substantial it would certainly help !!

I ordered the DRY AGED RIBEYE with Chorizo-potato gratin, braising greens, crispy onion, achiote glaze. $38, the most expensive item that I saw on the menu. I love my meat. I ordered it Medium Rare. It came medium at best. The taste was ok. I've tasted the same at sizzler. The gratin was basicly fried mashed potatoes and tasted as much. Mine came with asparagus and no crispy onion. Very disappointing for the price.

My wife and daughter has the STEAK FRITES Flat iron, herbed frites, chimichurri, béarnaise. Daughter was picky so I'm not going to report on hers, my wife enjoyed her but did not think it was worth it.

Brunch on the patio during the outdoor dining season in Portland is delightful.
Tasty, generous brunch selections, friendly service, and the views of the river, boats, and people passing by on the promenade make for a perfect weekend repast.

I had the Strawberry Gazpacho and the tamal. I thought the food was very average this time, although I have had exceptional experiences in the past. They were great about taking back a special cocktail they were promoting (prickly pear lemonade with rum) and giving me another drink. The service was excellent.

It's been years since I've been here but I remember the food being MUCH better. We came to Three Degrees to watch the eclipse and for that it was great - awesome view and incredible service. The food, however, was bland and extremely overpriced. $14 for 2 sad eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, and steamed greens? Nah. Portland has SO many great breakfast and brunch options - many with ambiance and a view that compares to Three Degrees - they'll really have to step their food game up if they want to charge that much.

Gonna say it again though - the service was friendly, attentive, and really sweet. No complaints there. Stellar service can't make up for that subpar food and lack of excitement on the menu though.

A visually lovely spot on the waterfront, gracious but rustic. Our server was very good, conscientious-attentive. The food was average brunch fare. Perhaps dinner has more culinary flair.

One of my two favorite Portland places for special dinners. The food is always excellent and a bit unusual. I love that they have a special drink that they donate $1 to local river cleanup. Most seats have a nice view of the river. Prices have risen a bit more than average lately, but I loved the food.

Very mixed dining experience. Reserved on Open Table, and we were seated at the worst possible table in a noisy, but virtually empty indoors dining room. When I asked about other seating availability, the hostess pretended that she didn't speak English, or otherwise understand the request, and suggested only that we re-seat ourselves. The only other party seated after us in our dining area (it was after 8:30 pm) got up and left before ordering. Our waiter was fine, but somehow on a Tuesday evening they had run out of Steak Frites --- but not the RibEye Steak for $6 more. The bill read RibEye Frites, but they never brought any fries. Oh well, the food we received was fine, but they obviously have lots and lots of trouble managing to attract and keep good front-line staff.
It should be noted that they offer a very nice Happy Hour from 4 - 6pm, and if you sit outside, and order the specially priced drinks and food, you'll probably enjoy it a lot. My advise it then to plan to eat dinner elsewhere.

Great Willamette River waterfront restaurant in Portland, OR. Due to higher than normal temperatures, we chose to sit inside in the air conditioning. Great views of the river through the windows. Outside dining would have been great, except for the heat. Food, wine, and service were excellent. Dara was our server and had good recommendations. We really enjoyed the restaurant, location, and service. We were staying at the Hyatt House, two blocks up river. 5 minute walk from the hotel.

The atmosphere is very nice. The outdoor patio was full so we ate at a comfortable booth inside. Their happy hour is great with special prices on drinks and bar food but, be warned, it was very noisy in the bar area on Friday night at 6pm. My tamal was delicious and my husband said his pork chop was the best he'd ever eaten! Our waitress was really professional and friendly so the whole experience was so good we went back the next two nights while we were staying across the street at the Marriott for a convention. There was no noise issue inside the restaurant or outside, just the bar. It's also a nice, pretty walk around the river area before or after a meal.

I'm from Portland suburb of Lake Oswego. Took 2 friends visiting from CA for dinner on patio at 3 Degrees. We shared 4 things: crab bruschetta, watermelon soup, field greens salad, halibut. ALL taste sensations! I'm still thinking about the entire meal, especially watermelon soup which was exceptional!

I thought the food was good and reasonably priced although $4.00 for a cup of coffee was more than I usually pay for a good bottomless cup of coffee. I was disappointed that there was no seeded whole grain bread.

This was our first time dining at 3 Degrees and it will not be the last. The salad and bread we shared were first-rate, dressed just enough and the dressing was some of the best I've ever had. All the ingredients were super fresh and bursting with flavor. The homemade crisps we were offered were a very nice touch. The Flat-Iron steak came with a Chimichurri and Bearnaise sauces that came with the steak were absolutely fantastic and a bonafide taste sensation when they ran together. The plate came with some lovely, roasted potatoes as well as some lightly dressed Arugula. I am not a big fan of Arugula usually, but I could wake up dreaming about those greens! The Chef also sent us out a nice taste of the Strawberry Gazpacho which we had asked about and it was wonderful! Thank you all, and keep up the good work!!

We ordered the original and their "special" hamburger. The original was unchewable in parts ( not sure what kind of meat) and the"special" was an odd combo of ingredients that made it unpleasing to the point of inedible. Our server was great tho and good people watching on the patio. Maybe just have a drink and eat somewhere else.

Went to Three Degrees over the weekend with 9 total in our party for a birthday celebration. The best part of the night was they were able to accommodate our party to sit outside. Took another 15 minutes and us asking for our waitress for her to appear. She apologized for the confusion (We had a reservation so I'm not sure what the confusion was). It was Saturday night and they were not busy. We ordered drinks which took another 20 minutes to receive. Service was slow, food was expensive and portions on some were so tiny. My husband got the poke tuna appetizer for $18. There were maybe 6 small pieces of tuna and the rest was avocado. The poke was piled one one side of salad size plate and the other side was empty. I had hoped for better as there is a nice river view but all in our party agree we will not be going here again.

This place is really pricey. There wasn't much variety on the menu. Some smaller portions perhaps for the more budget minded. Had I known I would have suggested we eat in the bar instead of the dining room. Our server was able to get me another glass of the house wine that I received in the bar, but I don't think he wanted to.

We go to Three Degrees very often, as we enjoy eating outside on the terrace as well as inside, and the food is always delightful. Staff and servers are extremely friendly and responsive. The prix fixe dinner is an excellent value, and we like the fact that the specials in the prix fixe vary each day. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.
