The restaurant is small, but they do an excellent job of managing the people. Spots to eat at the bar and outside. Food was fantastic; collard greens, mashed potatoes and fried chicken were the best I have had. The chicken fried steak and pork chops - phenomenal. Great food experience
Service was very slow. We were told that it was because they were busy; however, several tables were empty. Not their normal level of customer service!
Country Cat is hands down one of the best restaurants in Portland. The food is always fresh, cooked to perfection, and delicious. Service is friendly, atmosphere is fun and bubbly, price is appropriate for the amount and quality of food.
Great fried chicken and gravy. Fantastic service.
Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
We were planning a surprise and asked for special help in putting extra decor on our appetizer. They were more than happy to help us out! So grateful.
Great food. Love that they take reservations. Service was excellent.
Extremely noisy. Took forever for our food to come out. Food was great. Service very good as well.
Service was friendly and prompt - our server was the real star of the visit! The food and cocktails were outstanding as well. Our group of 6 was seated at a roomy table next to a window which provided nice light and people-watching along Stark!
The only downside of this visit was the noise level. I have visited before and don't remember it being this hard to hear normal table conversation. There were several others seated near us who were not particularly loud but I did notice the background music was more noticeable. Perhaps the volume was cranked a little more that evening.
All in all it was a nice visit and we will be back!
Nice they took reservations. Very busy too many tables per waitress, they looked VERY irritated to give coffee refills. Brunch cinnamon rolls and bacon outstanding.
Food was great! Loved everything!
Food was comfort and worth every calorie! A must try!!!
Food and service were great. The AC was not working so it was way to hot in the dining area. Very uncomfortable.
We had Saturday brunch and it was excellent! The food was great! It is quite noisy here, as the restaurant is fairly small. That would be my only complaint that I couldn't hear anyone at the table other than the one I was sitting right next to. Drinks were great! The bacon was exceptional! Would definitely go here again!!
usually a great meal the food at the airport is better than the restaurant
The salmon was delicious and the service was excellent!
My burger was great! The ketchup was very unpleasant though, it tasted like tomato soup rather than ketchup. Everything else was a delight.
Having seen them on Diners Drive Ins and Dives and the rave reviews, we decided to drive down from Seattle for dinner. They opened at 5:00 with a line of about a dozen people already there our excitement grew. The service was good and staff very plesant. We ordered the skillet fried chicken(very good) and two orders of the Whole Hog. Unfortunately both orders of Whole Hog were over cooked, making them dry and tuff. I would like to try them cooked properly, I believe it would be a great dish. We had four different desserts and all were delicious. Will give it a second chance if in the area.
Everything was good although I wished the coating on the CFS would of stayed on once you cut it. Other than that, was very good! Thanks!
Love this place! Food is amazing. Staff is great.😊 wish I could go here every day for a meal
Favorite special occasion restaurant!! The fried chicken is my absolute favorite dish.
The food and service were better than ever, and I was happy to note that the sound level was much lower than in years past.
The food at Country Cat is consistently good but it’s the practical and professional waitstaff who stand out. They’re efficient, friendly, not fussy. . . Just damn good at keeping things running smoothly!
Country Cat is one of our faves! Great food, easy location, and the service is AMAZING! I try to order something different every time I'm there, and I'm never disappointed.
Great Brunch for a larger group. Will go again soon!
Went with friends and had a nice, easy time with great food.
Delicious food in a comfortable, friendly, casual atmosphere.
We had a great meal
I love this place, I take my family here any time I get the chance!
We live in kennewick wa, and every time we visit Portland we go there for breakfast =) it's always amazing!
Awesome! Was even a perfect place for my sons 13th birthday!
Their fried chicken is wonderful—in fact, we have never had a meal there that wasn’t fantastic!
Fantastic selection of comfort food done up in an eclectic way! Service was fantastic! We will be back!
Known for their fried chicken and mashed potatoes! But the duck meatballs were amazing. We love this place and go there often.
We love taking out of town guests to eat at Country Cat!
We loved this place! Perhaps a larger Poutine serving would be nicer. The burger was excellent. My parents can't stop talking about how nice this place is.
Great atmosphere. Great food and drinks. Met some friends here and had a good time.
Some of the food was very good and some was fair. Duck meatballs very salty, gristle in my chicken wild rice soup. Too much green goddess on the Bibb salad but the crab appetizer was fabulous. Might be awhile before or if I go back. Very disappointing.
The six of us had an awesome time! The noise level was high.
We were seated quickly. The server was friendly and our food was prompt. We started with the cream biscuits and they were deliciously large so we weren't as hungry as we should have been for lunch. We had two preteens and two adults and didn't finish our food since their serving size is generous. I love their fried chicken!
