Once again fabulous food. The catfish was cooked to perfection, the chicken too. The mac and cheese is wonderful. Salads a bit boring -but how can you complain when everything else is fab. Just wish they would give back to their customers and take some reservations. Please!!!!

This came as a recommendation from a local friend and what a great place . Always a wait , to get a table and parking can be a challenge but once inside the service was great and the fried chicken was delicious. Out off the beaten path but well worth the drive . This is a must try .

Had a wonderful lunch there on a Friday. Having read the reviews we were prepared for the wait. Friday was very busy and I can't imagine what the weekend must be like. Parking is limited to street parking and we had no problem finding a space. You might have to walk a couple of blocks but after stuffing your face,... More

I live in Minneapolis but work in Portland every third week. Most weeks, I rush to the hotel, throw my bag in the room and run down to Screen Door. Outstanding southern food!

We have always enjoyed the food at this very popular spot, but this is the first time we have eaten on the heated screened patio. It was cold outside but we were very comfortable. The inside tends to get very crowded and noisy. It was much easier to talk with friends on the patio

With over 225 reviews on TripAdvisor and countless restaurants not rated this might have been the best restaurant meal I have ever had. A funky little place that was packed around 6 on a Tuesday night we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table, but the bar service was good and had some decent microbrews to chose from... More

We came to Portland to visit a friend. A nephew (foodie) recommended the Screen Door and told we we must eat here and to arrive early (5pm) as they open at 5:30 and there will be a line. I tried every way I could to get out of it, as I deplore waiting in line to eat, but we went... More

When we showed up we knew that reservations were not taken but your name goes on a list. When we were told 1 hour 15 minutes wait it was kind of shocking. However it was well worth the wait. Since it was my first visit I tried the cat fish and it was very good. Nice spicy sauce for. Then... More

My daughter wanted soul food her first night in Portland and even though it was late, Screen Door was open! I had the pork shoulder and she had the fried chicken. The collared greens were the best I've had. Everything was delish and the portions were so big, we took home enough for another meal the next day!
