I have never had anything I didn't LOVE here. Tomato Basil soup and Wedge Salad so Good. Truffle Fries are Incredible. Pork Sliders and Blackened Chicken melts in your mouth. The Sunday morning menu is always a surprise. So GOOD!

We told our server it was our first time going to Main Event, and he surprised us with free truffle fries. He gave us the run down of what was good and popular on the menu, and was overall just happy to introduce us to the restaurant. I had a chicken and rice dish, and my husband had a burger.... More

Have eaten here often, for lunch and dinner---they have a great happy hour menu. We also had my latest birthday party there; was very pleased at how accommodating they were and the food was good and kept on coming. Would recommend for casual or dressy casual dining.

Ate here while on business in Portland. Walked from downtown hotel a few blocks away. Great happy hour food choices, including wedge salad, truffle fries, sliders, etc. Excellent local beer selection too (although no beer happy hour prices??). Would go again.

We stopped in around 9:30 pm and the place already had the DJ going with a good mix and ordered some beer and food. All the food was on par for bar food, but nothing stood out. The beer was good with a diverse mix of local brews.

Service was very good. We were able to catch the baseball game while we ate. The peanut butter burger is way better then what it sounds like. You should definitely give it a try. Worth giving it a try!

I've been to this place a few times and each time had a nice meal for a reasonable price. It is a sports bar and can be noisy at times, but that's typical. The food is nothing out of the ordinary, just plain good and for a reasonable price.

Upscale sports grill (heavy emphasis on food), fantastic service staff in a great atmosphere.Seven years ago, a couple guys put their heads together and came up with a plan to open a unique restaurant in downtown Vancouver, WA. They wanted to create a community destination–a place where everyone from longshoreman to attorneys could come and feel relaxed and welcome while enjoying the best food in the area…without crossing the river. So, with particular focus on cuisine and customer service, Main Event arrived on the scene.Years later, Main Event is a local fixture that delivers family-friendly dining, the best happy hour in town, and an innovative cocktail menu for late-night drinks. Whether you are stopping in for the Quick Lunch, bringing kids in for a healthy meal, or settling down to watch your team play on one of their flat-screen T.V.s, Main Event’s renowned chef knows that customers “eat with their eyes” and presents creative, mouthwatering dishes that will keep you coming back for more.
