Terrific Pac NW Microbrews on tap, including the hard to find Walking Man H. Erectus. The happy hour food was quite solid (I had the reuben slides and a Caesar salad), which is great since theirs runs until 7 instead of the more typical

Great new place! And they get extra points for being on Groupon! That's the only way we found them. The meatloaf was delicious and the Philly was huge! \r

The place is laid back and the people are attentive but not overbearing.

I've been going to the Row for years. They always have a ton of great local beers on tap, and the food is great. I love going there with a few buddies every now and then to catch up and throw back a few.

This little bar is a great hangout located in the SE industrial area. They have a nice selection of local taps and offer a relaxed outdoor patio that hides the city scene behind a large wooden fence and bamboo. Decent food options and sometimes live music.

My wife and I biked in for lunch, arrived about 2:30 pm, not many customers. The bartender and waitress were friendly and efficient. Beer selection was 21 taps, many good choices including some "old standby"s and some good obscure ones. Soup was very good, "special sandwich of the day" was an excellent wrap --- I though the price was fair, then learned it also came with a choice of soup, salad, onion rings or three other sides. The patio is a great, comfortable place in good weather, inside was fine too. Other reviews criticized the service, but our experience was fine.

This well hidden place is a Portland tradition. A must try in my book, the sandwiches are great, the micro brews on tap great, the seating on the patio weather permitting wonderful. Give the a shot.

I love this place. I've been coming since I was a kid and I've always enjoyed it. The atmosphere is very casual and inviting. Great place for a lazy afternoon. GET THE STORMIN NORMIN. It's bomb.

With over 20 taps, 200 bottled beers, and a penchant for unusual, hard- to- find beers, I've never been bored with their selection. You won't find Drop Top, Mirror Pond, or Pabst on tap, but their alternatives are far more interesting. The Row bartenders also pour a stiff cocktail if you're looking for liquor. As for food, you won't be disappointed. The grilled chicken sandwich (with lemon- dill aioli-- yum) is always a good bet. Other standbys include the pepperoni sandwich, the BLT, and 2 delicious gyros. The beet salad is the best in town with house- roasted beets (not the gross canned kind), creamy gorgonzola, and a perfectly tangy homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Be sure to check the specials board for the pasta and salad specials, which are consistently excellent. The cooks also make fresh soup daily. On a recent trip, I was very impressed with the shrimp coconut curry soup, but their soups change daily. In the past, service here has been shoddy, but in the past couple years, they've really stepped it up. Servers and bartenders are friendly, without being cheesy, and are usually able to accommodate special requests. Lastly, this is one of the few non- smoking bars that doesn't have a trendy, holier- than- thou vibe in Portland. Great for a non- smoker like me who hates the Pearl district.

During the day it is a little neighborhood bar that has good food. They are well known for their daily soups, the chili and of course the sandwiches. They have a great deck out back when the weather permits. There are also over 100 types of beer. This is the original on which that well known Mc Brothers chain is based. Their portions on the sandwiches are larger than normal. Stick to the "small" unless you plan on sharing.

PROS: Outside deck, good food, fair prices
CONS: tough bread - not for everyone

No napkins? Get over it! A great spot for a quick good beer or for some easy bar food while exploring areas of Portland (no coffee shop destination near by!). Great patio, fun guests, what more can you ask for a casual afternoon out and about? Perfect!

Place was almost empty, but no greeting no seating. Had to go to the bar and get menus myself. Had to ask a bored waitperson to bring us water. The burgers was a dry paper-thin ground beef pattie carbonized at the edges buried between two halves of a french loaf. The Philadelphia cheese steak had the same overcooked cow and lots of bread. The fish and chips? The fish could have come straight from the freezer section at Safeway. We all thought the fries were good. No napkins. Had to grab a stack off the bar. No one who worked there seemed the least bit concerned about this. Conclusion: Go for the beer. If you must eat, order cheap because aside from the fries it'll be crap. And if you have the nerve, don't tip. I left 20%. Be hating myself for days.

Cons: service, food other than fries, service

I've been here a couple of times and the service just keeps getting worse. I've returned because of the Mon. jazz. However, tonight just made me want to run out of there. The bartender after twenty minutes and several instances of eye contact, told me just a minute. She was busy talking to her friends. The waitress was worse after finally ordering our food (carribean chicken and classic sandwich- absolutely terrible and greasy with no resemblane to jerk spicing as claimed) did not return for thirty minutes to take our drink order after giving us the beer list - which was mostly out of stock. I really wish they would get their act together because this place could be a great hang out - the musicians that are given the opportunity to jam together on Mon. nights are top notch all other aspects - nothing but frustration.

I hadn't been in Produce Row in about 5 yrs. It was one of my favorites then, but I always considered it a dive. So imagine my surprise when I walked in on a Friday night and it was a brand new bar. Holy cow! But the surprises didn't end there. I went to the bar and the bartender informs me that they now have table service, and she said it with a smile! Now if you have ever gone into The Row 5yrs ago or so, you understand how this smiling thing is amazing. My waitress must have won the best smile contest in highschool, because she rocked that grin and brought me my grey goose & tonic in 4 minutes. That night was one of the best nights ever and was topped off by one of my favorite Portland bands, Storm & The Balls, who played that night.

Last night was my first time at Produce Row Cafe, and I must say that my expectations were blown out of the water. Tucked in southeast Portland among the warehouses, I was welcomed immediately as I walked in the door by smiling faces not only from the staff, but the other customers as well. It's no wonder everyone was smiling...the amount of microbrews on tap alone would make all the locals mouths water. Our service was off the hook...the waitress was fun, friendly, and fast, (not to mention cute) and the grub was far beyond "bar food." I had the most luscious beet salad and eggplant sandwich (I'm vegetarian & they had plenty to offer) and my boyfriend groaned in delight over his burger & fries. Great atmosphore, heated outdoor patio, live music, full bar, yummy food, and kick ass people. You're damn right I'm going back.

You might be rubbing elbows with a judge or a plumber or an artist. All roads lead to
"The Row" and have for more than 20 years. Monday night jazz jams are not to be missed.

After enjoying a couple beers on the patio with my parents from out of town,I was feeling good about our choice of this charming pub.The beer selection was good,and our server was sweet and helpfull. Then when it came time to pay our tab we payed up and told our server no change was needed.A few minutes later a different server came back to our table and asked if the service was ok and then muttered under her breath that "the compensation was inadequate". I was shocked and insulted and to see the look on my Fathers face ,who happens to be one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, was hearbreaking. This rude server not only ruined our night but also ruined any chance of us ever coming back to "produce "rude!"

My eggplant Parmesan sandwich arrived with one lonely, greasy slice of eggplant on each half roll. It was accompanied by a minscule amount of limp onions and bell peppers and there was no cheese to be found...it was MIA. This set me back almost $6 bucks, and probably cost them about 90 cents to make. My hubby's chili burger plate appeared to be a very good value. But after cutting into it, we realized that the majority of it was bread with very little "burger" to it. The chili reminded me of food I'd eaten in Mexico - hot, bland and tasteless. The fries were crisp, probably the best part of our meal. We knew a friend there who waited on us so I can't really speak of the quality of service in general. We'd never go back though - at least not for the food anyway.

Settle in with a pitcher of your favorite lager, one of their fabulous sandwiches and a few of your friends and I can almost assure you of a good time. There are few things better in Portland than a beer on the deck at Produce Row in the summer.

I love the obscure industrial location. You'd never guess that the place has one of the best beer-drinkin' decks in town. Been going here for years, and it's gotten more crowded recently--I guess it's no longer a secret. Great place to meet friends and have a good sandwich or burger (no fries, though) and some pitchers of beer. Best when the sun's shining!
