Well I won't answer that question for you. You'll have to answer that for yourself. After reading the review, my son and I decided to go for it. Took over an hour to get a seated so BE PREPARED TO WAIT ! This was a Sunday night and the line spilled out of the small restaurant onto the street. After... More

Screen Door is amazing and worth the wait if you're not after health food. It's My favorites are the lemon ricotta fritters, the breakfast corn dog and the fried chicken on pretty much anything (chicken and waffles or the cathead biscuit sandwich). Bloody Mary menu is awesome and a great excuse to add a strip of Praline bacon. I've even... More

Although the food is not the healthiest in the world, it is certainly some of the tastiest! I came here on a Thursday to avoid that line around the block waiting to get in horror that happens every weekend. I was seated at the bar immediately with no wait and proceeded to order the Praline Bacon as a starter. It... More

Very noisy, very busy. Uncomfortable seating. Felt like a high school cafeteria...Staff was nice. Food OK, but mostly all fried and fatty choices. Probably would not go again.

We had an excellent brunch and tried several things on the menu, everything was expertly prepared, fresh, and flavorful. The only downside was the crowd, we had to wait an hour for a table. It was worth the wait. As we were leaving, the wait time had increased to over an hour.

Best fried chicken we have ever eaten! Great grits and biscuits and gravy. We got there with only a few minutes until they closed so we opted for the take out option and ate in our car. Not the easiest food to eat in the car but still amazing. Guys at the door were super friendly and accommodating, we could... More

Amazing food and service. The guy that was at the door calling the names was very funny. He kept the crowd entertained while we was waiting to be seated. I always get the French toast with the bananas because it's so yummy. My husband always get the chicken and waffles. This time we invited our sister and brother n law... More

This restaurant is known for its chicken and waffles and they are very tasty. I will return the next time I visit Portland. The service was above average. The restaurant is somewhat noisy because it is crowded, which is a testament to the quality of food. Also try their praline bacon, which is another signature food item.

Come hungry because the portions are more than generous. The food is southern comfort food. It tastes great but is definitively not what the doctor ordered. If you are lucky you will get a table quickly but don't count on it. This is a very popular spot and you better be prepared to wait - it is worth it.

Thank Swissabroad
