Tourists, this place is not for you. Or maybe it is, if you like uneven service, usually strong drinks (cheap, but not necessarily well-made) and normally raucous tunes loudly blaring over cheap speakers. It's dim and sorta cozy, and I hope to god it doesn't get bought and prettified and scrubbed clean of its beautifully blase and uneven Portland character.... More

Breakfasts can be pretty much the same from place to place unless you select the "odd" item on the menu. Here, it was the Morning Mess, which was has browns under a big patty of sausage under a fried egg, all smothered with a sausage gravy. So, it was hearty, but the gravy and sausage pretty much overwhelmed the eggs... More

Holman's is a cool place. Lots of whiskey, and you can join their whiskey club. Proudly down all the brands in house and you get a plaque on the wall. Your call if a good idea or not. Stopped in for a quick bite, ordered the clam strips. They were tasty and the clams were nice size bites--nothing wrong with... More

I first ate here over thirty years ago, and fortunately Fox News is no longer blasting from the TV. It's become a bit of a Portland hipster place to hang at late at night. The food is nothing to write home about, but the hamburgers aren't bad and the cocktails are cheap. The service can be "hit or miss," but... More

Had Sunday brunch here based on the recommendation of a friend and the suggestion their Bloody Mary Bar was worth a visit. The service was appallingly bad; I initially waited at the bar for ten minutes to ask a simple question; when we were eventually seated our waitress, Jennifer, turned out to be one of a sadly increasingly common population...

I have been coming here since I was 21, I am now 33. This is one of my favorite late night places ever. This is not a place to be "seen" just a good place to talk with friends, hang out, drink, and eat bar food. The Whiskey Club is also a good draw. Love this place for what it... More

This restaurant is a dive, no way around it but it has The best burgers in town. It is by far the oldest restaurant in this area of town and the decor shows it. Expect pool tables, dim light and pin ball machines. Outdoor seating in the back where smoking is allowed. You are not going to get truffle oil... More

My coworker's and I visited Holman's for happy hour and we had a great time. They had margaritas on special and they were delicious! The happy hour menu is filled with a lot of fun options (mostly fried in some way). The patio is very nice and spacious. Great bar with great prices with or without happy hour. One thing... More

We stopped in here and had a shot of Jagermeister and a beer. The place is a dive but it was still ok. I will go back here again as I liked it.
