Surprisingly complex menu for a pub. I really enjoy their version of jambalaya. Burgers and sandwiches are of course good as well. Love their tater tots! Their "normal" beer is excellent. I haven't quite acquired the taste for the sour "beer" they pour (still expecting someone to admit its all a hoax!) but some people swear by it.

We have eaten dinner at the Raccoon Lodge several times. 4 out of 5 times it has been the best food I have ever had and even that missing 5th time is wasn't bad. It was just average. I believe we have been there often enough to determine that one of their cooks is just incredible and the other is simply good enough. The same dish ordered on a different day is going to taste very different, If you have been there and your food was just "good" don't be afraid to order the same thing on another trip because you only experience the average cook. Service is always very good and the beer isn't half bad either.

Have been here many times and have never once had bad food. I'm very surprised at the reviews here actually. It's not cheap - but if you want a cheap burger go to fast food. The food has always been excellent quality, with excellent service. On friday nights (i think) there is usually a magician upstairs that is very entertaining while you wait for your food. Kids love him, and there is no additional charge. Watching a game here is great - huge TV. The service was slow the one time we sat outside for a saturday dinner - but there must have been 60 other people out there too. It's to be expected.

As we make our way around Portland's breweries, we decided on Raccoon after friends raved about it. The place was pretty busy as we found seats outside on a pretty nice Friday night. Most tables had small kids that used a grassy yard near the tables as a play area. Our server came pretty quickly and we ordered a couple of their beers. One being a white stout. Sounds weird, but was actually pretty good. The IPA that came second was a good, not overly hoppy IPA. We settled on the fish tacos and a burger sliders. Both were pretty good. Pretty typical bar food. We liked Raccoon and it would be a good place for a causal meal/drinks with friends and kids.

We go to Raccoon Lodge as it has things our children will eat and provides areas big enough for our group. The food is fine, the beers are varied and good. It is not remarkable, but works for what we want.
