I'll go again to Raccoon Lodge when in Portland. The food was quite good. The beer was/is even better!

“Horrible Service!!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

After being seated and given menus by a very uninterested person, we sat for 15 minutes without even getting a glass of water before we finally gave up and walked out. We won't bother again.

“Good food, good beer”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

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.

“Give it a go.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

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.

“Love this place, atmosphere, food, and a magician!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

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.
