    Get ready for the priciest seafood in Portland! But hey the seafood is actually fresh and great, oysters plump and plenty, service inconsistent. Worth a visit if you're into more exotic seafood.

    The Foursquare may be gone, but this is still the best happy hour option Portland has to offer! Try the Cajun chicken sandwich, and make sure to ask for extra aioli on the side!

    Bartenders wear a tie, so are probably better dressed than me when I go in, but they don't make a big deal of it. The best happy hour food menu/value in Portland. Old school drink wizards.

    Mixed fine & casual. Very comfy. Gr8 service! Specials were definitely the star. My veggie sides had no flavor. Crab cakes & stuffed halibut= #yum

    The Guinness is alright but too cold for real Irishmen. It is from a chilled keg and nitro-boosted for it's non-creamy head. Recommended nonetheless.

    I am not a seafood eater. That said, the chicken linguini I got was not good. Tough, dry chicken and no flavor. I would only recommend if you are a seafood fan. We did have good service though.
