Visited the Screen Door while in Portland. Nice surprise to find Southern Flair in the Pacific Northwest. The line had already started gathering as I arrived. Glad I was there early. Great customer service and good creole offerings. If you like a kick of spice, check it out ..... You'll be glad you did.

We ordered food for a group of 10 and we did it family style. We shared everything, and Iʻd have to say, it was all really great. The chicken was fantastic, if it was the fried chicken, wings, or strips. They were all slightly prepared a little differently from each other, but they were all great. I was most happy... More

Epic waiting time. There's free coffee while waiting to be seated. No parking space, so street parallel parking, we ended parking on the back street a block ahead, this was around 9am. Serving is huge, we just had the 2 in the picture which was highly recommended and it did not disappoint! Would go back here again.

The server was very nice. Slow but attentive. A bit weird, but this is Portland so who can tell. The food was very good southern food. Good chicken and greens. Strange gravy, but good to try. I will go again.

I don't want to say average because it was better than that, but it was good. Waffles with whipped cream, hush puppies with a spicy glaze, cheese grits and eggs all made us happy. The hot chocolate was great and our server was lovely. We visited as it was in Yelp's top 100 so had to go. Luckily on a... More

It’s hard to know where to begin with ‘Portland’s Fifth Best Restaurant’ based on TA reviews. Three diners, three different dishes; fried chicken, beef brisket, and the ever changing pork dish, in this case braised shank. The most striking part of the meal seemed to be the flavors, and how each side dish complimented the meat portion of the meal.... More

When I lived in Portland I made sure to always take visitors here. The food is outstanding, the servers are always friendly and prompt (even though they may be swamped), and the atmosphere is perfect. Sunday brunch is a good time to go but get there at least 30 minutes before they open. Once in, get the chicken and waffles,... More

We were somehow able to get in on Saturday without much of a wait. The menu is perfect, everything looks great and I wanted to order one of everything out of curiosity. We did start with a bloody mary- just spicy enough to not slurp it all down. Biscuits with pimento cheese and grits was a pretty great way to... More

We are looking for great chicken and waffles everywhere we go, stop here for Portlands best take on this great dish. Everything at Screen Door is superb, brunch lines can be long but worth the wait.
