Our out-of-town visitor wanted to sample some local craft beer, so we brought her here and got it half right. As its name suggests, Portland Craft does serve craft beers, but its focus is on American West Coast brews. There is a wide selection on tap, offered in 3 serving sizes: taster, half, and full. The menu has snacking items as well as good brewpub fare for meals. We enjoyed the Portland Burger, Cod Burger, and Borscht and Salad, and the Charcuterie Platter ordered by the next table looked tempting. The modern 2-storey room is open and cavernous, with seating at the bar, or at tables or in booths. It looks like they made an attempt to dampen the acoustics by suspending bags of barley? malt? from the ceiling, but when the place is full, the sound level in combination with the house DJ makes conversation difficult. Service was friendly and attentive, if forgetful. We weren't given water, cutlery, and ketchup at first, but once we asked our waiter, it all quickly appeared from his magic cupboard nearby. Kids are welcome, and customers included families, couples, and people of all ages.
Great atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff. Food sort of bland. Would return and hope it was just my taste buds!
Food and service were amazing! Washrooms were not though .... the bartender seemed irritated and disregarded my guests and I when we brought it to his attention. I guess he was too busy??
I had the burger. It looked so good but was super salty. Just my burger. The other burger my friend had was fine. The drink selection was great. Love trying the flights of beer and bourbons. Reasonably priced.
The food was excellent and a reasonable price point. Wait staff were very accommodating.
A great brew pub on Main and 22nd. We had a party of 10, which they accommodated nicely. The shared plates were perfect for our crowd. A good place for a group to get together.
We host a monthly supper club. We review a new restaurant every month. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Portland Craft.
We had a great time! It was busy, but we were well taken care of :) would definitely fine here again!
Great ambience and service was good. Beer selection is great.
The only concern was that one of our friends apparently didn’t leave a tip (It was separate bills. Please know that I did leave a tip) but it appeared that tip was taken out of another friend’s bill - if that did happen, I hope it doesn’t happen again. We’re happy to leave a tip as customers but do not necessarily like to have that assumed/forced on us.
The lady that served us was helpful in suggesting beer choices.
Always a good meal at Portland Craft! The menu changes to provide variety but the old faves are always there. And the new ones are worth a try. Fabulous beer menu too!
Gone to Portland many times as my girlfriend lives in the area and it's becoming a favourite. They have an outstanding happy hour menu for food and drinks that runs in the evening and latenight. It's usually not too hard to get a table and they have a long table for large groups, had no trouble getting my bday party for 20 in with a reservation. Always changing the taps so they're guaranteed to have your favourite beer at one point or another! Food is great fresh pub fare and comfort food.
Our waiter was amazing, always checking up on our table seeing if we needed another drink or snack! Food was amazing, the buns on the burger were excellent!!
Loved the service and drink selection. Great choices of beer and wine was 1/2 off for a bottle !!
Better GF options/ clearer options would make this place my all time favorite. I felt a little limited in what I could eat.
Loved the large tables . We came on a Sunday evening for a friends birthday.
It's amazing place. Good beer and food.
Moderate noise and server is very kind.
Randomly picked this restaurant to have a bite before going to the baseball game. All four of us enjoyed our meals and the ambience. Our vegetarian enjoyed the selection, and his choice of the pulled “pork” sliders made with jackfruit. The very best thing that will bring us back, was the absolutely yummy dipping sauce, the scallion honey aioli. It was so good we ordered 3 extras and one to take home with our leftovers! Great find, really enjoyable outing.
Awesome! Had a great time for my birthday party on a Friday night with a group of twelve people. Food was great and music was very good too. I should have asked for Argentinian music, because the first time I was there on a Tuesday there was a playing list with some Argentinian rock music, which I was fascinated by! Lovely place!
Had a group of ten & great food, beer & atmosphere. Will definitely return!
The place is cute. Had to ask for my drink a couple times before getting it. The place wasn’t busy. Also the burger I got was burnt and flavourless. The fries were decent.
I did some researched of this place online, I found some good reviews and the rating is good that's why I decided to bring my friends here to celebrate my birthday.
Food and the price were fair but the waitress who served us aren't very friendly. She came by the table and ask if we are ordering drink, then just walk away(doesn't look very happy) then want to move us to another table if we only have two people, which all the tables beside us were seated two people too, why move us? Then my third friend came later and want to order some food, she completely ignored my friend, went to the front to put down something, then come back and take order (can't even say a word)
I don't think I will ever come back again.
Our group had another purpose nearby and needed to meet briefly ahead of this engagement, to talk through the plans. Portland was close and took our reservation, honoured our need to be fairly quick with our meal and get on to the next stage of the evening. I have personally enjoyed this place on a number of occasions so was already sure of the food quality and choices. Everything worked very much to plan.
Had a great night with friends and food was excellent! Thanks for giving us a nice table as well :)
Fantastic as always! Great food and service. Also a great place as it is kid friendly.
Will not recommend. Manager called 15 minutes before the reservation to say they could not accommodate us. Really unprofessional.
Portland Craft is an amazing place to eat and drink with friends. Lots of larger booths for bigger groups and the service is incredible. I would highly recommend to anyone
Always a pleasure to go to Portland Craft. We live in the neighborhood and it's become our "local". Whether eating in or taking out, the food is consistently top notch.
Portland Craft was chosen for its convenient location that day, and it was a great choice. We loved the pizza and enjoyed different beers, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Looking forward to dining at Portland Craft again soon!
there are better beers from Oregon, but I know it's difficult
