We stumbled upon this place and saw a little line out front so we decided it was worth a try. What a great decision!! The buttermilk fried chicken was simply amazing, maybe the best we've ever had! The shrimp and grits were also incredible as well as the burger. Everything was high quality and definitely a place to eat when... More

Great place and great food, but beware the portions are huge. Can't go past the crumbed chicked which is large enough to have as a sharing plate. Good beers & very friendly service. Well worth a visit & very reasonably priced.

The food was delicious. I had the bananas foster French toast - it was decadent and my son had the biscuits and gravy. Everything was fresh, the restaurant was busy but the service was good.

I had an artisan Apple salad, and the Screen Door Plate with fried chicken, collard greens, Mac n cheese, corn bread. Delicious!!!! I have one more day in Portland. I want... More

This restaurant does Southern right. Everything is genuine--the hushpuppies, the okra, the collards. Superb food, but the setting is a bit crowded and loud. Good wine and beer selections. They take no reservations, so either go very early or late, be prepared for a long wait, or go on an off-time like a Tuesday. Parking is a bit scarce in... More

Had a killer breakfast at the Screen Door after reading an article in the NY Times. A must " go to" when in Portland. Cool place, must be awesome for dinner and some drinks. Highly recommended.

I had the shrimp and grits with eggs. Yummm brought me back to my childhood in the south. The shrimp were perfectly cooked with just the right amount of dark gravy over the creamy grits. My husband had the biscuits and gravy. They were ok, a little light on the gravy and the biscuits were a bit dense. The candy... More

WOW... We had one night only in Portland last weekend and after scouring reviews of where to eat, I went against my instinct for seafood and gambled on Screen Door. So essentially, yes, we traveled to the PNW to eat Southern food. We rolled up around 4:30 pm, for the 5:30 opening and there wasn't a single person in line.... More
