Good food, good drinks, good service. Great place where you can always count on them being good. Their specials always include a 2 for $25 meal, which is one double-sized meal, and two beers (or $5 credit toward the drink of your choice) for $25. Great deal. Also, their rotating Tarts are generally good.

The Grain and Gristle is located in a wonderful neighborhood for walking around and exploring. Our group of 3 had a late breakfast, my eggs benedict (a special that day) was beyond wonderful. All of our meals were fresh and innovative. Although they have a full bar we only had coffee and it too was excellent. This gem of a... More

Small but delicious menu for lunch. Best burger in town. Great and different choices. Never ending coffee.

We were craving a good hamburger, but, with an infant, couldn't go to several well-known hamburger places because of the liquor laws in Oregon. We were very happy about our choice of Grain & Gristle. We all had hamburgers and onion rings, plus their special seasonal salad of beets and corn. The hamburgers were prepared perfectly, although next time I... More

I went here with my parents during an impromptu restaurant crawl. We were looking for a cocktail each and a few small plates to share. We were very pleased with the selection of plates to choose from. The cocktails were our favorite part - we each had a different one and all were very tasty. We had deviled eggs (they... More

We stayed with a friend overnight in Portland and he took us to this neighborhood spot for dinner. It was warm enough to eat outside - which consisted of picnic tables. Great service, and nice craft cocktails plus a good selection of bourbons. Try the deviled eggs and pork rinds for appetizers. Our entrees were very good - we had... More

Friends and I were catching-up in Portland for the weekend. For dinner on Friday, we wanted a place that didn't feel touristy and that was casual. A person with knowledge about Portland suggested Grain & Gristle, and it was a great suggestion! This indeed felt like a casual, neighborhood establishment; the other guests seemed like locals and the atmosphere was... More

This was our first trip to Grain and Gristle. We went for lunch with our son and DiL in their part of town and this was their choice. It was just before noon and we were presented brunch menus. We were not disappointed! Located at an intersection with a handful of shops and restaurants in the same corner, parking is... More

Pork croquettes. Remember when you were a kid and how freaking amazingly delicious McDonald's Chicken McNuggets were back then? These...are so much better. Their burger was fantastic too. No sauces necessary, perfectly cooked and seasoned. They only have locally made spirits at the bar (or at least they didn't have captain, pyrat, or sailor for rums), but the rum and... More
