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.

Nice place to come for Happy Hour and normally one of our favorite places. Food selection is nice and good selection of draft beers as well. They also have several unique mixed drinks as well. Favorite items on the menu are the Truffle fries and the Caprese sticks. This evening was very interesting. We came in for happy hour and... More

We discovered this place after the last place we were visiting closed and we wanted something a little more to eat. It was a great find and the service was really good Server was really friendly, but it can get very loud in there, especially late at night, so beware. Food was really good and if we're in Vancouver again,... More

We travel for a living & this is hands down the best place we've been in awhile. Great food, great prices & friendly fast service. That's almost unheard of anymore. We'll definitely recommended & be back.

We came in with a large group at about 1030pm on a Saturday night and I don't know how we got so lucky but we all got seating at a few tables and had beer, cocktails and some food and the waiter was very good. He dealt with our group and was so fast! We enjoyed some sliders, and some... More

We started with a surly waiter and it went uphill from there. After returning with our drinks, he perked up and turned into another person. We enjoyed a delightful meal. I had the salad and spicy chicken sandwich. Very tasty. My family enjoyed theirs as well. I was amazed that for the number of people there and the TV's going... More

Description
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.
