I love this place, and I'm so glad it's going to stay open. My wife and I had our wedding rehearsal lunch here, and we're so glad we did. It's a fun place for anyone, as the food is outstanding, especially for the price, the...More

We went on a Sunday, the bar wasn't too busy and we played pool for free, which is hard to come by anywhere. The cider was the drink of the night and were only 3 bucks, and the blackberry flavor was delicious! The garlic fries...More

I love the casual demeanor of Rialto. No nonsense pub food, lots of tvs, pool, and booze served quickly and by friendly folks. I love the cheesesteak sandwich and they do fast togo food. A neighborhood classic stopping point.

My friend had never tried a Rueben Sandwich before, so I convinced her to split one with me. Truly, the best I've ever had. My friend liked it so much, she's afraid to order one anywhere else and be disappointed! We also each had a...More

Went on a Saturday night around 10:30 on an Oregon game night and it wasn't too crowded, we were able to get a table to sit at. Bloody Mary's were awesome with olives and asparagus. Would definitely go back.

Stopped in at the Rialto to play pool and have a few drinks. Music was great, crowd was ecclectic, enjoyed our few hours except it was HOT. Portland doesn't always have the type of heat they've seen this summer-so no AC-but lots of space and...More

After playing two games of pool and having a single drink, the bartender tried to charge me for 1.5 hours of table time (20 minutes in reality). The bartender put those charges on my tab despite seeing the time stamp of when I ordered my...More

Big fan. Great place for a group of friends or for the solo alcoholic. The bartenders are good folks and the music doesn't often suck. Centrally located and easy to get to. It's a comfortable place and not bad for pool either. It's dimly lit...More

Rialto would be good for that. Sam's Billiards in the Hollywood district (around 42nd and Sandy) would also be a good place. Both places have also got Snooker or British pool tables. Sam's is a much more enjoyable weekday... More
