    Fiance got the WT. His egg were cooked to Perfection, the biscuit was delicious, and the gravy is out of this world. Same feeling on potatoes, lackluster. Overall nine out of ten for this dish!

    Drinks:: Talk about Wow! my fiance even did a fist pump at the Bloody Mary :-) he doesn't like beef jerky, but said this Bloody Mary with the beef jerky is money! The Mimosa is clean, crisp, & light.

    The cinnamon bun with pecan glaze, oh my goodness. Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside, and the more you got to the center, the warmer and softer it got. Perfection!

    Excellent breading on their fried chicken. Jerky was also done well. The pear salad with honey and walnuts had pears that were prepared with delicacy. Would come here again for the chicken.

    The things they make here should be illegal. Bloody Maries with beef jerky. Omelettes. Potatoes. Sweet potato pancakes. It's insane. Indulge once a year, if you can.

    Amazing! Such hood good and a good variety too. This is our seen on time here. Sit away from the door when it's cold since the seating area is pretty small.

    The Country Cat is all about American food, prepared by a chef, Adam Sappington, who understands the nuances of old world cuisine. The fried chicken here is out of control. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    If you're there for dinner, get the fried chicken. Shhhhh, just get the fried chicken, then the pudding trio dessert. DON'T ARGUE WITH ME. F'real.

    Everything on the brunch menu is fantastic but the slow burn is where my heart truly lies. The morning crew is super fantastic and great with our daughter.

    Sundaty and fried chicken are a match made in heaven. When in season, must get rhubarb pie with caramel ice cream, best I have ever had! Read more

    Everything I've had has been good. They were damn near empty during snowpacalypse. So the service was fantastic.

    If you like a savory breakfast, order the Campfire Breakfast. Barbecue flavor, honey butter for your rustic cornbread, and tender, juicy meat.

    Try the Pork Face Pancetta, pork shoulder, and country-fried pigs ear with egg and pork liquor.

    Go for the eggs benedict. Perfect eggs, sauce and biscuit combo. Sop it up with the potatoes... goodness....

    Ordered the salmon benedict. Wasn't a fan, surprised. The Hollandaise sauce, missing something, & the smoked salmon was too strong. Even the potatoes were lackluster. Disappointed. Get the WT instead!

    Jerky is tasty, but chewy. Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon was good, not sure if I liked the bones in it though.

    If you are looking for a healthier option... the seafood options are delicious.

    Secretly uncrowded on Saturday mornings for brunch. Excellent service, especially if you grab a seat at the bar. Delicious Bloody Mary's.

    Ask your server they'll tell what's best in the menu.

    Skip the burger: tough, underseasoned and always well-done, regardless of what was ordered. Low point of an otherwise tasty menu.

    Excellent Honey Mustard Wings! Best I've had!

    It's good. Not good enough to try it again though. The home fries were the best part of the plate.
  • Shrinidhi S.
    Brunch was underwhelming, the service was aloof, and the beef jerky like the chewiest leather. The fried chicken was good, but there are better places to eat in Portland.

    Seriously underwhelmed. Server was bored/rude when asked for recommendations. Food was expensive for the size/taste. I hope their breakfasts are better because their dinner menu was disappointing.

    Breakfast is pretty good... side of Bacon is worth it, but you'll want to split it. :-)

    There are worse ways to start your day than with the grilled cheese and hickory smoked tomato soup.
