Pros: Good Place

Cons: Nothing

The Cheerful Tortoise is a well known and inviting sports bar. It's location near Portland State University makes it a convenient gathering place for college students and downtown folks who want to unwind at the end of a busy day. Breakfast is inexpensive, but inviting, a bonus.

This is a nice eclectic little place that is very favorably located on the way to downtown Portland. I work on "pill hill" and need a place to relax with friends on occassion after a hard day in the lab. This place fits just right.

Nice place to hang out and have a beer. The $1.99 breakfast special isn't too bad, but you may want to order two. The waitstaff has always been friendly and pretty quick.

We're regulars on Thursday nights. From 8:30-9:30 ALL beers are just a buck, and then after 9:30 all of the domestics (Bud, Coors, Etc.) are STILL just a buck! If you're into mixed drinks, try the Hurricane or the Elizabeth.
