    Surprised to see such a low rating here. Take it from me, one of the best tap lists in the pearl.

    Upstairs staff are slow and never seem enthused to serve you, if you ever get served.... The red head is the WORST! Keep coming back hoping it will get better but it never does!

    One of my favorite Portland bars. Stuff drinks. Great prices. And some really delicious food. Get the fries.

    One of my favorite bars of all time. Mainly because it's open late, and not many places in PDX are open late.

    They frost the glasses, if that isn't your thing you'll need to say something when you order.
