Checked out this famous place our first night in PDX. Interesting this started it all for McCormick & Schmidt - some great history here. Oysters were fantastically fresh. Crawfish were, well, interesting! Halibut and cedar plank salmon were fresh but not great. Clam chowder was delish. Service was outstanding (thanks Matthew!) wine was of course fantastic - Oregon Pinot WillaKenzie... More

Excellent service from staff who knew the menu inside out. Very happy to answer questions and queries. Lovely atmosphere. Large seafood based menu. Everything we ordered was fantastic. Portions are on the generous side!

This restaurant was so thoughtful and kind to my husband and I. We ate here for our anniversary and they made a menu with our names on the top of it congratulating us for the occasion. It made us feel very special.

This has been an institution in Portland for decades, although it is now been absorbed by a national chain. I have eaten there several times and the food was consistently very good. The fish, from the oysters, to the grilled fish and the crabs was fresh very well prepared. The place is busy and elegant, with many rooms and seatings... More

Went for a three-generation dinner with youngest age 7. Access on a Friday night at 6 pm was a little crazy - streets were congested and slow-moving. Valet parking in front of the restaurant. Had reservations and were seated at a table that was in an alcove with windows on the street - perfect for the situation. They did have... More

Wife, son and I had probably had the most amazing dining experience ever at Jack's. We let the waitress choose our appetizers and meals. They were happy letting us share the dishes. We took the Chef's table, which was the bar in front of the kitchen. I was hesitant at first, but the seating turned out in our opinion to... More

We went to Jake's with the idea of enjoying dungeness crabs, for lunch, as we were catching a plane East. The options were available but very pricey. ($44.95 for a serving of legs) We did enjoy our selections of crab and shrimp cakes, crab bisque and Northern Waldorf salad. Our server was great.

Went there for breakfast on our last day, the menu was somewhat regular and the food was prepared very well. Service was great and the atmosphere is great.

Was staying at the Benson and the folks at the desk recommended Jack's. We got a seat in the bar versus waiting for a table - same menu, great service, and nice atmosphere. I had the horseradish crusted coho salmon - it was absolutely out of this world. We also had some apps - crab cakes and calamari- both we... More

This is a restaurant at a big venue. How can they not be staffed and prepared when they know there is a concert that night. They couldn't have been surprised that they filled up but it sure seemed that way. Thirty minutes for a drink and then it was $10 for a glass of wine and $19.50 for a double... More
