best happy hour (PDX)
I love getting good food at a good price :) please recommend some good Portland happy hour food/prices, and (if you know) the days and time of the happy hour.
Thanks in advance.
JillO, tell us a little about those. Price/food options/etc.? I've never been to any that you mentioned and am also quite interested in Happy Hours.
As far as those I've been to, and like, here we go:
Jake's Crawfish: [3-6:00/10-12:00 Sun-Thurs; 11:00-Close Fri-Sat]
1.95 menu with great stuff like the Tillamook Cheeseburger, Sushi Roll and much more. 2.95 menu has the excellent fish and chips and of course, more. 3.95 menu? I haven't tried anything from it. Most of the options will definitely fill you up - don't make the mistake of ordering more than one plate if you aren't familiar with their portions. That said, a few dishes don't offer a heck of a lot of food (Pot stickers, spring rolls, chicken wings), but all are quite tasty.
Huber's: [4-6:00 / 9:30 to Close]
Not as tasty as Jake's, but pretty good. Also, you get slightly less food here, but it's still quite a bit. 1.95 for most of the things (Turkey Sandwich, bowl of soup, salads, etc.) and 2.95 for a few others.
Henry's: [3-6:00 / 9:00 to Close: Sun-Thurs; 10:30 - Close: Fri-Sat]
Crowded place but yummy food. A lot of 1.95 items (macaroni and cheese, sushi rolls, caesar salad, soup) but an equal amount of better-tasting 2.95 and 3.95 items.
Those three are the more popular of Happy Hours around. I'll write about some more obscure ones later.
I have a few favorite happy hour spots.
Ruth Chris (downtown) - their happy hour cheeseburger is to die for! It's just under $3 bucks when you buy a drink. And they always have happy hour drink specials, too. Oh, and their seared ahi tuna on the happy hour menu is a bargain as well!
Silk (NW 10th and Glisan in the Pearl District) - awesome Vietnamese appetizers. My favorites there are the salad rolls and the chicken over noodles (sorry, I can't remember the actual names of the dishes!). Both are on the small happy hour menu though.
I'll post more ideas when I have the time!
bluehour 13th & Everett in the Pearl (Prosecco and truffle fries in the summer)
Vault on NW 12th & Everett in the Pearl (Best blood orange margaritas)
Paragon on NW Hoyt & 13th ( Fried calamari )
