Southern
Walk-in's always welcome! Screen Door is a restaurant that presents itself as a love letter to the American South and the revival of regional cooking. Each day, the restaurant receives natural, local organic meats and produce from nearby vendors. The inclusion of regional Pacific Northwest ingredients into a menu of dishes developed in the south has created a unique flavor profile in Screen Door's menu. Many of Screen Doors dishes draw their inspiration from Louisiana and the Cajun cooking that's found there. These include our world-famous Fried Chicken, Lowcountry shrimp and grits, smoked andouille chicken gumbo and fried okra. Other items, like the house-smoked beef brisket and braised pork shoulder, come straight from the state of Texas. The rest of the South is well represented as well with a Carolina pulled pork sandwich, chicken and waffles, crispy fried oysters and a pimiento cheese & sausage biscuit sandwich with a fried egg and cheddar grits.

    Some of the best food I’ve had in Portland. I had the mushroom scramble with goat cheese and kale. Also ordered a side dish of their famous chicken tenders. All delicious. We tried the cinnamon roll appetizer. Tasty but I found the rolls to be dry. We also tried the pecan bacon. Quite tasty. The hibiscus tea punch not too special and hot chocolate ok. Overall wonderful Main food and service super friendly.

    The food was great! The service was a little disappointing. Our server Daniel seemed to be somewhat distracted. The server never came back to check on us after they brought the food to the table, never offered a refill of our coffees or water. My wife had to motion to the server to even get the check. Then for some reason the server had excuse themselves for “not being on top of their game.” Clearly.

    I’m used to vegetarian options generally being fine at most restaurants. Not usually good, but fine. The Screen Door’s vegetable hash was amazing and gorgeous. Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, it actually made a mix of vegetables a delicious treat. Everything else I tried on the menu was wonderful too. I can’t wait to go back.

    busy Friday night-so we got seated at the bar. We enjoy a view of the kitchen and watching the bartender working. He was super friendly while skillfully making people's drinks. Food was great tonight. The salads were especially nice. The chicken and fried oysters were excellent as usual. A very nice experience-the layer cake was a great finale!!

    I was so excited to bring a friend to Screen Door for the first time to celebrate her 60th birthday. Unfortunately the food was lackluster compared to the dozens of times I have dined at Screen Door previously when it was truly knockout. Unsure if it was just an off night but bummed regardless. The waiter was kind and the outdoor heated patio was enjoyable as we had it all to ourself.

    Boy do I wish I lived closer to this restaurant as I would make it my go to breakfast place. The vegetarian hash was absolutely out of this world and legitimately one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in my life. The food is Southern, but does not feel heavy as it’s fresh with local ingredients. There are also vegetarian and vegan options. The ambiance is also very contemporary and charming. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone for any occasion!

    I first went here on a field trip some years ago and since then I've never forgotten this place. My friends have never heard the end of my ravings about how good the bananas foster French toast was when I first tried it. I've also tried the Sawmill Breakfast and the gravy was incredible. Not too sweet or too salty and the perfect consistency. The chicken in the chicken and waffles was a great big breast piece with tender meat under a crispy batter. Only $16 and it could have fed me twice. The waffles were lightly sweet with a crispy toasted outside and cakey inside. The staff was friendly and genuine. The tables are a little cramped but I didn't mind. 40~ minutes to get the food you ordered might sound like a lot of time to wait (especially in our "want it now" culture today) but it was well worth the wait and money for some of the best homestyle southern cooking you ever tasted for roughly the same money you'd be spending at big chain restaurants. You will definitely want to get a reservation ahead of time; this place is always bustling, and for good reason too.

    I have wanted to dine at Screen Door since we moved here 6 years ago, but the no reservations policy and subsequent long waits for a table kept me away. As soon as I discovered reservations are now taken I booked for Saturday brunch. After a three week wait for our booking, we arrived on time and we’re seated immediately. Our wait person was very attentive and personable. My adult daughter ordered chicken and waffles. My husband ordered regular eggs benedict, and I ordered ricotta pancakes. The fried chicken is amazing. The benedict excellent in large part because they use smoked pork loin instead of canadian bacon. My pancakes did not measure up to these other dishes. I plan to book two brunch again, first for my own order of eggs benedict and second for the fried chicken sandwich. I also plan to book for dinner to try the fried chicken dinner.

    The food was way too salty. The tables were crammed in the restaurant and someone was constantly squeezing by. The noise was so loud we couldn’t even have a conversation. The service was ok, but I was never asked if I needed anything else until long after we were done eating.

    This was second time eating here, the first was years ago. I made a reservation for colleagues that are in town. Our table was ready the second we walked in the door. Service was consistent and friendly. Restaurant was clean and had great ambiance. Food was better than I remembered. Hush puppies, fried chicken, Mac and cheese, fried oysters, pecan pie and drinks were amazing. My only food critique is that the fries green tomatoes were cut super thin and were lost in the breading, but the remoulade was on point.

    I love Screen Door, so I'm biased in my review. Tonight, we ordered a burger, fried chicken, mac 'n cheese, fried oysters, collard greens, and fries. Burger was great but not mind-blowing. 4/5. Good enough to order again. Chicken was amazing. Ham gravy was decent. I think the breakfast gravy is superior. Oysters were incredible. Mac was incredible. Fries wonderful. I love the creole honey mustard for dipping. Room doesn't seem to absorb sound well, so it gets louds. Felt crowded too. Service was polite and professional. Server seemed busy. Costs more than an average restaurant in the burbs, but the recipes are great and the food is extremely delicious. I only wish is was a little quieter. It's a very busy place. Overall, I think it's one of the top five places in Portland.
