A group of five went to dinner. The seating was tight, a booth with a chair on the end but manageable. We were sitting by the bar and bartender was our waiter. He know the menu very well and make excellent suggestions and drink pairings.

Everyone was complimentary to the biscuits with honey and butter and all entree's received praise. The deviled eggs had an odd taste (we determined that it was olive juice, odd).

A couple of us had the pork three ways - amazing - pork chop, super soft pork loin and pork belly on a bed of grits. We all agreed the grits were dull and lacking flavor but the pork was excellent. Table also had fried chicken, tasty, pot roast, and ravioli.

We will go again, it was a nice experience in a cute neighborhood.

Expecting great things, experience just okay, C grade. Dumpling special was served with warm broth, but lukewarm dumpling, cold in the middle. Jerky appetizer was pretty ordinary, not tender or particularly well seasoned. Whole hog pork plates were overdone and selections tough to cut, except for the pulled pork which was moist, smoky and tasty. Polenta lacked substance, more a puree. Ducketta and chicken dishes were fine, not special. Wine was very good, as were cocktails & dessert; service very good too. Nice atmosphere and venue.

Delicious as usual. We've been to Country Cat multiple times for brunch and it never disappoints. Special note is the homemade jerky which this pescatarian makes an exception for especially when an accompaniment to the bloody mary. The biscuits are flaky and buttery. The skinny onion rings will capture your attention. The egg dishes are superb with a special nod to the eggs benedict with salmon and the hollandaise sauce is just the right amount of lemony goodness. Go with your friends and enjoy a fun time.

After previously dining at Country Cat At least four times and having excellent food and service, we were quite disappointed with our dinners this past weekend. My salmon was dry and had no sauce at all, not even a slight scrape of mayonnaise and no lemon at all. The potato accompaniment was tasteless. My husband’s pot roast has previously been melt in your mouth delicious but this time the beef was good but the seasonal vegetables tasted sour and slightly burned, not good flavor or texture. It seemed like there was an abundance of brussel sprouts that were past their prime. Our onion rings were tasty but the bottom half were hundreds of small bits and pieces, like the bottom of a popcorn tub of old maids. Drinks and desserts were great. Lots of good places to dine in Portland so we will not be back for quite awhile.

Great brunch and didn't disappoint! My family was in from out of town and they loved the southern style. The ham hock special was a. If hit as were the fried chicken and eggs Benedict. Only glitch was with the salmon in my eggs Benedict, an awful lot of bones that someone could have choked on (they were fairly large fish bones). Our server was amazing! My family had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything including the bloody Mary's!

Very enjoyable time with my wife, sister, and brother-in-law. The service was very good and the food was delicious. We will be back.

If I had one small complaint it would be as we finished our meals and received to-go boxes for our leftovers, one of the hostesses came to our table and asked us to leave as they were preparing for a party of eight.

In all fairness, if she would have cared to take a moment to observe, she would have seen that we were preparing to leave, but were talking as we were unable to talk that much due to the delightful food we just enjoyed. Pretty rude when you consider we had just spend $80 plus tips in you establishment.
