So, I've been to the brewpub a couple years ago and the service and food was good. There were no complaints there. I just went a couple of days ago to meet with some friends there for happy hour. I was very thirsty when I got there and

BridgePort Brew Pub is a great pub in the Pearl district in downtown Portland. It's a very historical area and building. Try the pulled pork sandwich..we ate during happy hour so it was a great price and the pints are great price during happy hour as well. I think happy hour is 4-6pm. If you are downtown you should make time to drop in and check the place out. It's a cool place!

My boyfriend and I are fans of Bridgeport and have been for some time. This summer we took my father there when he was in town, and he made us promise we'd take him every time he visits. This past weekend there was a convention in town, and I was saddled with the task of finding places to eat every night for random, large, assorted groups of people, with varying tastes, ages, preferences, you name it. The first night we had 11 people, with everyone from a vegan to a picky eater to a meat lover, all beer fiends. We were sat very quickly for what I thought was a busy place, and the good times began. Every plate was cleaned, we had ordered everything from pizzas to vegan dishes to chili, pork sandwiched, different beers, we really must have had one of everything on the menu. (Yes, the menu is limited, however, EVERYTHING on it is delicious!) After hours of sitting around, having fun, enjoying our meals, we left very satisfied with the whole event. I think it's amazing that you could find a place where 11 totally different business people could ALL enjoy a meal. (So much for "can't please all the people"!!!)
Later in the weekend, as the town was mobbed for St. Patty's and we couldn't find a spot anywhere downtown with less than a 2 hour wait for 7 people, someone ventured, "Let's go back to Bridgeport!" No one from the first night out complained, we all hopped in cars, and drove up there. We found seats in the bar, ordered our beer and pretzels, and the amazing waiter grabbed a cookie for the diabetic in our group, and before the pretzels could arrive our table was ready. Seriously. We once again practically tried everything on the menu, and between seeing a grown man with bbq sauce on his ear from the giant ribs, and seeing another man literally eat the mustard sauce from the pretzels with a spoon, I have to say, it went over AGAIN as being an amazing mean. 18 mouths in one weekend, ALL satisfied. Three cheers (and then some) for Bridgeport!

Pros: the food, the beer, handling our large group

Cons: a bit noisy, but hey, it's a bar

The first time I went to bridgeport was in 2003, a few months after I moved to Portland. I loved their beer, and I loved the building. I soon became a regular and was disappointed when they closed for a year to remodel. I was back after the reopening and was somewhat disappointed, but with a brand new staff and new menu, some kinks were to be expected. So I tried again some time later and was pleasantly surprised. It has since continuously gotten better and I have become a regular once again. The beer is still solid, the food has become consistently fantastic, and the staff is friendly and attentive. The building has become modern, but still retains the original charm. I understand that there is a stark contrast between the old and the new. But to everyone who hates the new bridgeport, I say you are very narrow-minded. I think you have to understand that it is a business, and when it opened in the 80s, it was surrounded by warehouses in an industrial part of town. That part of town has since become trendy and upscale. But the pearl district grew around bridgeport, and as a business, all they can do is adapt. It wouldn't be economically viable to have a dingy brewpub remiscent of the 1980s in the most up and coming part of portland. They did what they had to do. Soulless? I don't think so. Go in and eat the food, talk to the staff. Give it half a chance. I think that if you go in with an open mind and an empty stomach you will quickly have a new opinion. Some people are just flat out afraid of change. Bridgeport has done nothing but impress me lately, and it seems like everyone else likes it too, because their business is booming. Go in on a Saturday night and you'll see what I mean. Five stars.

When we return to places we love we want that original experience. We crave it. We bring our friends and brag to them about the great beer, the great pizza, the unique experience and then.... . We walk into a foo-foo place that is boring. That is not what I came for. That is trying to be one shinier buckle on the belt; when it was the back bone of the strip. A place where you got what you came for and never doubted the experience would be worth the trip. A place that you could visit with 21+ 8 year olds and they all would love the pizza and feel invited in to the inner world of classic adult beer appreciation. A place that you could visit with 8 21+ friends and hang. Enjoying fine food and the finest beer - no pretentious foo-foo too hip for you goo-goo. Please bring back the classic experience of Bridgeport. It wouldn't take much and I think that you would be repaid a thousand times over. We have tried to accpet what you have crafted. We don't. Please reach into you past and re-create yourself in your historical image.
Oh and another thing if you average the 56 ratings you get a THREE star rating. Bridgeport Blue Heron ale deserves better - its simple bottle and fantastic taste is elegant enough without the high stools and foo-foo goo-goo.

Pros: It was once great.

Cons: It is empty of zest.

I usually don't write on these things, but do use them too look at people's recommendations. And in looking at the recommendation for this one I felt the need to stand up for bridgeport. I live in the area and frequently visit. The stout is excellent and the cheapest in town. The service can be slow at times but only because the place is full. But as for rude and "hipster" servers I see only the opposite. I have always had pleasant service and experiences. The food is always excellent. I know people have a hard time with change, but walking into it with an already bad assumption because it changed makes it a bad experience. The vegan bowl is to die for. The cashew sauce is something different then most pubs have and thank god they have it. The cupcakes are wonderful and a good dessert after a beer and the hawthorne pizza. I say give it a chance even if it is different.

As someone who has become obsessed with craft beer after a life changing visit to Portland in 1992, I wanted to love the new Bridgeport. I wanted my memories of the warm, pubby atmosphere, the laughter, the families, the inviting light, the smell of fresh baked pizza, and the funky charm of the pre-chic establishment to seem dated, an embarrassment. I wanted to be taught how crass my sensibilities were in the face of the inevitable gentrification of the neighborhood. Instead, I want to cry after visiting Bridgeport for the first time since the "renovation." The character and families are gone; black surfaces, surly staff members, creepy patrons, and a somber, hipster mood are in. The place is as inviting as the Viper Room in Hollywood. Bridgeport would have carved a wonderful niche for itself by remaining the same -- a timeless reminder of the "old" Pearl in a sea of sterility. Instead, it "reinvented" itself into blandness. They don't even offer their barleywine on tap (let alone cask) anymore, and laughed when I asked about it. The last time I had it was before the "remodel," and it was the only time a beer was amazing enough to make me cry. No joke. Now their focus on beer is gone, and a brewpub without a passion for its product is nothing more than another restaurant. Such a sad and terrible loss for a wonderful city. The ownership says the change was inevitable; I say hogwash--go check out Edgefield for a bit of education.

Pros: Blue Heron is still a great pale ale

Cons: Everything else--terrible atmosphere, horrible staff, awful food, no soul

My husband and I went here during the weekday for happy hour this week: service was decent, beer was good (although he got the beer sampler and the labeling was totally incorrect on which beer was which), and the food was decent.

Went with a larger group last night and we had a decent time. Food was average, service was ok (a bit rushed despite it being not very busy) and beer was good. I really enjoyed the mac'n cheese last night which was cooked on a pan with a toasted/crispy/crunchy top. I wanted this for lunch today before work and my husband went for 2 takeout orders of the mac'n cheese. What we picked up absolutely did not resemble what I had last night. The two boxes contained the nastiest looking soupy concoction of shell noodles swimming in orange/yellow cheese. We spoke with the manager on the phone to ask what happened and after a long hold, he made up some excuse stating that the actually process of cooking the mac'n cheese did not suit the takeout container. Um, that's when you should cook it like normal and then place it int he box! My husband went back to return the food and get a refund, hoping to get an apology. No apology was every given and the manager just said that they plan on removing the item from the take out menu. WTF? Where was my apology?! I'm never going back here ever again.

We go to Bridgeport frequently when we're downtown. It's pretty reliable for easy parking and being seated quickly. We like to go upstairs to the seat yourself bar part, where they still serve the full dinner menu. The food is always good (I had a delicious pork dish last time) and the beer is reasonably priced. The service is occasionally a little slow, but everything is worth the wait.

My wife and I had an enjoyable experience at Bridgeport. I hadn't been since the remodel and was hesitant to go, but was pleasantly surprised. Still the same old classic beer (I love the IPA), but the food was nothing short of fantastic. I had the seared steelhead and my wife had a mushroom risotto. Both were phenomenal. I've had much worse food at trendy restaurants and paid twice as much. I didn't think much of the new look, but any place that can combine great cheap beer (20 oz pints!) and great cheap food is definitely high on my list. I will be back.

We live just a block away from Bridgeport in the Pearl, so this is our local watering hole and we like it just fine.
Make sure that you visit during the happy hour for great beer and tasty food.
The food is great and made to order, and beer you all know that beer is great

Cons: There serving there Beer in Fine Crystal

I just went to Bridgeport for the first time after the opening and all I have to say is: WOW! The place was packed yet we were still able to receive the prompt and professional service you would expect from a well established business. The IPA (an old favorite) was better than I remembered, I had a pizza with bacon and BBQ sauce that was amazing, though I was slightly skeptical at first! My spouse had shepard's pie which blew us both away, it was the perfect dish for a cold rainy night in Portland!
Our server was great, very pleasant and never seemed rushed although, like I said, the place was full. Loved the food and beer, we will be back!

good beer as usual but the atmosphere and ambience are gone!!!the remodel is a attractive with the mix of exposed brick and wood. don't get me started on the seating! bar stools suuuck. half backs???pub tables and chairs are the most uncomfortable ever. worse than my elementary school cafeteria. food was great. good menu. not your typical "pub fare" thank god. if i see one more chicken wing on a restaurant menu...
advice to mgmt., get new seats so people will be comfortable and you might get more repeat customers who will stay for a while.

Pros: beer and above average pub fare

Cons: bar seats and uncomfortable tables and chairs

.

The beer is good. Otherwise, I'm not impressed with this place. First, the menu was somewhat limited and lacked the typical pub fare one expects. Were the food spectacular, this would be fine, but it wasn't. I ordered bangers and mash, which (at $9) was bland. The sausages were no more flavorful than a Johnsonville (less actually) from the Winco and the potatoes brought me back to my childhood KFC and school lunch experiences. The gravy, well, I've experienced gravy packets with more kick. Also, for $9, one gets 2 sausages and a mound of potatoes... that's it. No salad, no bread, no interesting veggies...

My spouse ordered the Steel pizza ($12). We both agreed Digiorno is more flavorful. It wasn't awful... I mean even bad pizza is still pretty good, but it was so not worth the money and tasted like a cheap frozen pizza.

The service was average (in that we ordered and our food was brought to us) and for our party of 6, we were automatically charged 18% gratuity. The server lacked any sense of sparkle or service attitude and certainly didn't go out of her way to earn the 18%.

In the future, I'll stick to Widmere, Raccoon Lodge and McMenamins for my pub experiences. We are pretty easy to please when it comes to beer and food, but Bridgeport on Marshall left a lot to be desired--even with our beer goggles on.

Went last Saturday nite and was very dissapointed. Our waitress was totally lame and the pizza was not good. She brought everything out at one time instead of bringing soup/salad before the main meal, we asked for ice cream with a dessert and she said they did not have it then proceeded to tell us after the fact that they did, but she was to lazy to go get it? Would not recommend

Pros: Cool ambience, nice bar

Cons: Terrible service, terrible pizza

Salad was d.r.y. Pizza was pure sugar. Service was good. Beer was decent. They changed the menu again. Why? Who knows...they were better off before they changed the place around. Great atmosphere, but the pizza was weak. Some sort of onion and mushroom. Has anyone ever heard of keeping it simple? Spend your money on a Papa Johns pizza and pick up a few IPA's at Plaid pantry. Much better value.

I've been here quite a few times. We were at BridgePort the other night and had yet another great experience. We had a desert sampler platter that was fantastic. I had a couple of their awesome beers and My girlfriend had a Pear Drop (I think that is what it was called) I had a taste and it was awesome! Great Atmosphere, Great Food, GREAT!!! BEER!!! and a cool mix of people too. Can't say enough good things about this place.

as a frequent traveler to Portland, I loved the new look. Dined with my 75 year old mother
twice in May 2006,in the restaurant, the lamb shanks were excellent. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, (extra bonus points for flirting with my Mom on her birthday). Drank in the
pub upstairs on two other visits, both times, the waitstaff, was friendly and attentive. Yes I understand the new look is more polished, but on the plus side more ADA accessible.

Pros: easily reached by streetcar

.

AMBIENCE-->As others have said, it's pretty much unrecognizable to anyone who knew and loved the old Bridgeport. Shiny hardwoods, white granite, modern fixtures, etc. Dining room on one side, more casual setup on the other side, which the hostess informed us "honors the spirit of the traditional pub" with long tables to encourage mingling, etc. I don't what this place is, but with white cloth napkins wrapped in lead holders, silverware nicer than anything in your house, and water brought to your table in a fancy bottle, a pub it ain't. "Honors the spirit of the traditional pub"- what a crock. Grade: D
SERVICE-->Painfully slow. 8 minutes to get our drink order taken, which finally arrived about a minute before our food. Server checked on us when we were almost done eating. Had to flag him down to get the check once we were ready (and had been so for several minutes). No explanations or apologies about the delays. No matter what else I thought about the place, the service was bad enough to put it on my permanent boycott list. Simply atrocious. Grade: F
FOOD-->Distinctly average. Doesn't merit any further comment. Grade: C
BEER-->Hey, it's Bridgeport, how bad can it get, right? The sterile atmosphere dropped the enjoyment level a notch, but it's obviously still good Oregon microbrew. I swear, though, that something is different with the cask-conditioned beers. I had a cask IPA (same as I've had a million times there), and it didn't have the same lively profile I've come to expect- may have come from serving at a temperature that was a few degrees too cold. Grade: B
OVERALL IMPRESSION-->One of my favorite pubs in Portland has been taken away from me. I guess the pressure to blend in with all the soulless, sterile stuff that has grown up around them was too much to bear. Bridgeport IPA may be one of my favorite beers, but I feel a little dirty even thinking about buying another pint or six-pack of it. Ever.

Had to at least give it a try, and the food wasn't bad, and the beer is still the beer, but wow, what a major disappointment. The old place had so much great atmosphere, great beer, great pizza-by-the-slice. you name it. All that has been removed and replaced with an upscale cafeteria-like restaurant. A sad loss.

OK, I'm not a Bridgeport purist like many of the reviewers here, I'm an out-of-towner who enjoyed a fine group gathering upstairs here. Food was good, service was excellent and neighboorhood was cool to check out. Nothing awfully stellar here but no complaints either.

Since reopening Ive been here three times. Each time Ive sat in a different area of the brewery. The first time was a few days after their grand opening. A friend and I went to happy hour upstairs at the bar. Our waiter, Bret J, was one of the snootiest waiters Ive ever encountered. He would pass by our table and not even acknowledge that we might want another beer or put in a food order. He acted as though we werent even there, turning up his nose as he walked by us. My next experience I sat in the bakery area and had pizza. Where did that wonderful slice go? The pizza they are serving now has nothing in common with the great old pie they used to serve. For a bakery the crust was tasteless and lost its crisp texture immediately. Dont even get me started on the toppings! My last and final try to make this place work was on the patio dock. My husband and I wanted a cool drink and some munchies last Saturday afternoon. Our waitress, Katie, brought out our drinks, but did not bring any sugar to go with my iced tea. That is the last she looked at us. She waited on tables on either side of us, and whenever we would try to give her a signal that we needed service she just looked the other way and walked away. I finally had to fetch the sugar myself, and we never did get a food order in. At one point she was so engaged in a conversation at the cash register that the chef had to call her to tell her the food order for a table was getting cold. Just a note for those servers, your tip is directly proportional to the service.

My hamburger was so dry even though I specifically ordered my burger not to be dry. The food was boring and so was the ambience. The beer is always good even though they were out of the Porter on a Wednesday night. I will not go again. There are so many good places in Portland. This doesn't rate a second visit. The food gets 1 star, service gets 4 stars, ambience gets 2 stars, beer gets 4 stars, value is 2 stars.

The happy hour food wasn't bad, but our moronic waiter made our experience there pretty unpleasant. We were into our second round of appetizers before we got our beer--and this was after I questioned him about its whereabouts. When we paid, we wanted to split the check and gave him 2 credit cards. He came back to us, holding both cards in his hands, and claimed we only gave him 1 card. We were dumbfounded at his idiocy; he was holding BOTH in his hands! After going back and forth, he finally realized he did, in fact, have 2 cards in his hands. He was also snooty and demeaning, to boot. When you have trouble counting to 2, you have no grounds to be snooty.
We won't be going back.

Bridgeport changed for the worse! The 'upgrade' is dissapointing to say the least. They make decide WHAT you'll eat before they even seat you, so they can decide WHERE to seat you. Very un-cool. The first time my family and I tried to eat there, we were so put off by this that we left without even getting a table - something at least 3 other groups ahead of us in line did as well. Wierd business plan Bridgeport! I tried again and the food was pretty good, service was nice, but EXTREMELY slow.
It's unfortunate, because Bridgeport used to be my favorite - now I won't go back.

Had a few friends meet, on a Friday night. We so loved the old place, relaxed, pizza/beer joint. We already have to many upscale bar / restaurants in town. Great idea adding private group space, Portland needs more of that. I don't have kids but a few friends commented, it's seriously not kid friendly anymore. Unfortunately, we left and didn't try the food. Can't comment there, the beer was good as always.

We live a block away and have waited throughout the remodel for Bridgeport to reopen. We went tonight, and the first thing was to look at three menus and decide WHAT we wanted to eat before we could find out WHERE we would eat. We noticed that the PUB and BAR menus have the same selections in different order. Hmmm. We were sent upstairs where there was a line of people waiting to be seated and no staff to organize the masses.

We left and went to the On Deck - Good food, great atmosphere, friendly, and not complicated. Much better bet for my dollar.

Last Saturday a few friends and I decided to check out the new incarnation of a Portland favorite. Immediately upon entering it became clear that the Pearl had claimed another victim and in fact Bridgeport was no longer even a brewpub. The furniture appears to have been purchased from a Dania clearance sale, the bar is faced with uninviting (and poorly installed) marble tiles, and the sense of community is lost on the new trust fund clientele. When we finally got a table, our server was neither knowledgeable of the menu nor could he articulate the basics of the brewing process. When ordering we realized that two of us would have to eat in different areas in order to eat what we wanted. I recommend waiting until this experiment fails and they return to what they did well - providing a public house focused on community, beer and simple food.

I was a regular at Bridgeport for ten years. Saturday I returned for the first time since the renovation. Unfortunately, it now fits perfectly in the Pearl District. The decor is sterile and plastic; gone are the days of the inviting, warm & rustic interior. Operational changes are an equal disappointment. You have to look at three menus before even sitting down and then you can't get pizza in the dining room. The service is impersonal. Our waiter was inattentive and did not seem to know the menu very well. Though the corporate owner (it's not even locally owned anymore) has given in to the greed surging through the neighborhood, at least they didn't change the beer.

I understand why corporate owners of Bridgeport felt the need to remodel the brewery. The mark was missed in the ambience department which what the old brewery had in abundence. Black and chrome table and chairs clash with the sprit of the old hemp factory.
The beer is as good as ever the bakery is a nice touch, however I can not get past the Portland modern attempt to be part of the Pearl.

Since this resturant re-opened there is to be expected the few quirks that will need to iron themseleves out to survive. 2 of the 3 meals were cold. I was lucky enough to have the warm one. Food taste was what I expected it to be for the location and price.

My gripe about this place is how the dinner menu was written. It seems some overly intelligent person wrote it because from the starter to the main course I really had not clue what I was ordering. Salmon Bacon?? What does that mean...Salmon cut like bacon? Salmon the looks like bacon...when actually it was a Salmon topped with a few sprinkles of bacon. If you keep the menu's the same please add punctutaion.

With 3 menus why are they all served out of 1 kitchen. No wonder 2/3rd's of our dinners were served cold. Our server was nice though.

My husband and I were really excited to visit the re-opened Bridgeport. Sadly we didn't wind up eating there and never plan to return. Upon arrival we were asked to decide between the dinner and pub menus. After some struggle in the dimly lit area to quickly decide what we wanted to eat for dinner, we chose the pub menu. This unfortunaley meant we could only sit in the pub -- a room equipped only with 3 foot stools. Being that we were there with our 15month old, we were pretty shocked they would suggest this type of seating. When I pointed out that there was no way for us to feasibly sit there, we were pretty much told "too bad". We could either eat off the unaccomodating for children dinner menu or subject our toddler to a potential 3 foot fall from a stool. We left in disgust.

Having been a patron of the "old" Bridgeport for 10+ years I eagerly anticipated the reopening after the long remodel process. What an disappointment! The new Bridgeport feels like every other Pearl-district bar/restaurant. What a loss for Portland! There are now three different menus to choose from, each equally inflexible ("no substitutions!") and uninspired. Based on our experience, I got a stong sense that Bridgeport is trying to "weed out" the old patrons, especially families with kids. Citysearch should also make their listing clear to show that the newly opened Bridgeport is completely different that the old one, as all of the pre-2005 restaurant reviews of Bridgeport are really no longer relevant.

Bridgeport has been converted into an Upscaled Modern Industrial theme. The old rustic look if mostly gone, even some of the oversized support timbers have been cut through and left looking like severed appendages.

Gone are the cozy nooks for a private beer and meal with friends. Instead, all areas are wide open, looking more like a demented school cafitera. It's loud and the is no privacey.

There are three eating areas: Pub, Dinner and Bar areas. All have different menu's which makes things a little confusing when trying to see the entire menu. Some of the old Bridgeport stand bys are on the menu.... at a new price - Higher!

Service was horrible! 20 mins for anyone say hello. Then we recieved, only what I can call, two PROFIT POURED Beer.

The quality of the food was good, but not worth the price.

I can understand a different menu for the dining room and then other areas but THREE? We had to stand there and quickly read and somewhat decided what we MIGHT eat in order to figure out where we were going to sit. This felt awkward and silly. I suggest the SAME menu for the bar and pub so one is only stuck with one quick decision before being sat. Also, where's the flavor? Had the spreads and grilled bread and I could barely tell spreads apart. The blue cheese spread was bitter and hardly had any blue flavor, quite disappointing. Wouldn't say we'll go back any time soon.

BBP is worth the trip if you appricate the quality beer that the rose city can produce, however, if you are looking for a quality dining experience, go somewhere else. BBP has by far the worst service in this city, in the pub and also for the kegs to go part of their business. But I guess I deal with the horible service for the reward at the end.

We hadn't been to Bridgeport for several years, the beer was always a bit too warm and the pizza was just better than average.

We went over the weekend and things have really changed. The pizza is now thinner and crisper, almost NY style. It was exceptionally good. The beer is also colder, and the IPA is much better here on draft than anywhere else, and allot better than from the bottles.

The only downside is the place is crowded, and the upstairs is warm. They had a wedding reception going on in the big ballroom and it was closed, so seating was limited. Perhaps if that area is normally open to everyone it would really help with the crowds.

I found the food to be over rated and over priced mediocre pizza. The service was terrible. I have never seen so many workers so miserable and unhappy in the beer industry. The only saving grace to the menu was the IPA. Generally, pretty good. But I recommend going across the river to Widmer or over to Portland Brewing. At least you can get a smile from someone in the waitstaff.

I've enjoyed both the beer and the pizza at this brewpub. I'll admit to not being a native of New York, which means my opinion as to the pizza will be viewed by some as suspect. But I've had crisp pies, with ample and tasty toppings. One caution: if you add the jalapenos as a topping, be prepared for a very spicy pie. Bridgeport is very generous with those peppers. The place could use a larger menu selection, for those few who were brought up wrong.

Rate this 1 -dead last-. High Prices, Cheap 14 day aged Ale is whats offered for "quality". If a 7 Day Ale were possible, it would be found here at the same inflated Prices.

Ageing Malt Beverages 30-60 days is unknown here. The food, what little their is also pricy an only "fair" in quality, unlike its price, its nothing Special.

Ageing Malt Beverages 30-60 days is unknown here. The food, what little their is also pricy an only "fair" in quality, unlike its price, its nothing Special.
U would do as well in a SafeWay Delli, not any worse.
