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.

    The fried chicken and collard greens are some of the best I've ever eaten. Unfortunately it took over an hour for our food to arrive. We understood that it was busy--it always is there--but a glance around the room showed that almost no one had entrees, and most had no food at all for nearly half an hour. The staff was pleasant under stressful circumstances, and they comped us 3 drinks for the trouble, but it didn't change the sour mood at our table. The excessive noise level only further irritated our hungry guests.

    Great food, great house drinks, really attentive service. Went on a Saturday evening at 6pm with a reservation (its REAL busy on Saturday evening, make a reservation or wait an hour+). It was loud, packed, and difficult to move around, but once you are seated - its great. Will go again with a reservation.

    Great food and service every time we go there. It can be a bit loud when it is crowded which is most of the time. Not bothersome - we just lean in a bit to be heard.

    We have been to both locations and the food and service are always superb. The chicken & waffles are so memorable (as are the deviled eggs!). We are not local but try to make a stop anytime we come in from out of town. Highly recommend! (But make reservations)

    My wife’s dinner was awful. The nokie was dry and way overcooked. The catfish had an odd taste. We got desert but the coffee came after we were finished. The waitress just brushed it off. My dinner was good and out two guests had a nice dinner. We have been frequent customers and have noticed the changes. All the good entries are gone. Sad

    On Super Bowl Sunday at 6:15, only about 40% of the tables were filled. Highly unusual for Screen Door which is usually mobbed. As usual, there were no issues with the reservation and the service was superb.

    Fourth time here. So much better than you think it’s going to be. I could live on their catfish and bananas foster French toast. Brilliant egg dishes. Definitely go for the shrimp and grits. Earthy, energetic, positive servers make your experience great. And the vibe is a palpable joy in good food and gathering together. It is loud and it takes awhile to get food but no one rushes you. Go enjoy: relax into a fun time.

    Prior to the pandemic and their second location, I always felt like going to the screen door was an experience and great. However this last experience made it my last. The service was good. The quality of food was poor. The eggs were burnt and overcooked into rubbery dollops, and served cold, as well as the breakfast potato’s -overcooked into hard cold salty pieces unable to eat. It was very disappointing and sad. I won’t be back. They were great in the past but not anymore…

    I do love introducing new people to some of my favorite restaurants which I did yesterday. There is just something that I really like about the Eastside location. It is cozier and has more of European dining feel. The outstanding staff along with the food makes the experience that much more special.

    Went for our daughter's birthday, everything was pretty good. The cinnamon rolls are really yummy! We got breakfast and the potatoes were really really heavily seasoned but other than that everything turned out good. Would definitely reccommend. And go on a Tuesday, there wasn't very many people there which is nice since this place is usually crammed. If you haven't tried it, try it.

    - Food is good overall, especially the catfish sandwich and chicken & waffles, but the seafood jambalaya was mediocre (sorta mushy, relatively flat flavour, but seafood itself was cooked well. - Wait staff and other FoH were friendly and nice, but the BoH (kitchen) was extremely slow. We waited for ~45 mins after ordering for food, even inquiring twice. Obviously it isn’t the waiters fault for slow food (unless they forgot to enter the order). - I would go back, but it’s not as good as it used to be.

    one of the worst experiences we have ever had at screen door. we had reservationsf or 4 at 6PM and were there on time, ordered quickly and waited about an hour and 15 minutes for our entrees. The waiter paid very little attention and did very little to help. other guests got their food before us. very annoying overall. it will be awhile before we return.
