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.

    Service was kinda slow, they brought an incorrect item as an appetiser, they were very quick to rectify. The server was over stretched for a busy Saturday night so was not the most attentive, it was not his fault. The food was AMAZING!

    Screen Door used to have the best fried chicken, but now the chicken filets are much thinner and they make up for it with way too much batter. The end result is meh. Same with the fried oysters. Very disappointing how their quality has gone down.

    Screen Door is consistently good across both locations. The fried catfish is perfect every time, surely the best in Portland. Most everything else looks great too, but I can’t not get the catfish.

    This was our first visit to Screen Door in the Pearl - and it did not disappoint. We arrived before our reservation and they were able to seat us. Service was good, food was delicious, and portions, generous. Loved being able to park right under the restaurant and within walking distance to Portland Center Stage at the Armory.

    It was busy, and they may not have enough trained staff. This was a meal before a play at the Armory. When I asked about the 50% off on desert (due to attending the play), server had no idea and did not really care. We ordered anyway and the pie was delicious. When I asked about the parking situation under the restaurant, the host really knew nothing about it and in fact gave incorrect information (you pay at a kiosk, not upon leaving the garage). My wife loved her meal, I got indigestion.

    Service was pretty bad. Couldn’t keep water filled, barely checked on us, couldn’t open our bottle of wine, lost the cork after asking twice for it. Tables next to us were cleaned by throwing all the table scraps on the floor close to our feet. Just kinda gross dirty diner feel. Won’t return!!

    Always a fun family dining experience at Screen Door… It’s our fave casual dining restaurant near our home in the Southwest Hills. Our kids love the hush puppies, mac-n-cheese, collard greens and fried chicken. But, everything is delicious; especially the cocktails!

    Great food and great service. Very noisy, crowded, and no street parking nearby. Plan extra time. We always have to wait for a table, even with a reservation and it's always busy so it takes a while to get your order.

    The food was fantastic. We had a reservation but we were a couple minutes late due to parking. We had to wait several minutes to be seated. It was very loud, difficult to hold a conversation unfortunately. Seems like the location needs more sound dampening.

    Too bad Screen Door doesn't do anything about the uncomfortable sound level. It's all hard surfaces so the noise is deafening with people trying to talk over one another. A few soft surfaces or sound baffles would go a long way. It really makes an otherwise very good dining experience much less enjoyable.

    A fantastic night out! I had been to the original eastside location and was delighted to discover there was a westside location! Food was delicious and service was friendly and prompt. Tough to compete with the ambiance of the eastside, but this location was warm and welcoming and very comfortable.

    Had friends in from out of town for NYE, Started with craft cocktails and hush puppies. Everyone found delicious food and the space is warm and comfy with a lively vibe, it was the perfect start to our night out and came in right around $200 including a 20% tip. Not bad at all for the quality of food and 2 drinks each for 4 people!
