On a rainy late afternoon in Portland I wondered into Gritty’s, as I tend to do when I’m in the area.
Shrimp and Fries- this plate of perfectly battered (enormous) shrimp on top of a huge pile of perfectly cooked and seasoned fries was only $18. The cocktail sauce was perfect, cole slaw was a bonus. At first glance the fries look like any ¼” hand cut fries- but they were perfect, can't stress that enough.
Service at the bar- the bartender was charming, smiled and poured the perfect SOS.
Bathrooms- didn’t smell like low tide.
Perfect reviews aren’t reserved for fine dining establishments; authenticity of simple but perfectly executed items goes a long way. So that’s it; short, sweet and to the point…just like Gritty’s.
