We stumbled upon a winner with Kenton Station. It's a family friendly restaurant with great food and service. It's nice to find a place where my kids are welcome and my husband can watch a game on one of the several large screen tv's.

The food is great, the cheeseburgers are unrivaled. The staff are all friendly and acknowledge you as soon as you enter. Keeps you wanting to come back.

This is a fantastic local bar with good bar food, and friendly staff. The beer is cold, and the Barmaid K.T. I swears know everyone who comes in the joint!

Pros: Great Service

Cons: Smoking to close to the doors

I love this place...for a lot of reasons. It's located close to my house, but it's also close to Max and the bus. They have good cold beer on tap, friendly barmaids, decent food, and you can almost always find whatever sporting event your looking for on one of the many t.v.'s.

The food, drinks, and service are always great - nothing too much on healthy side but worth coming to splurge and have a wonderful meal none the less!

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere...nice to see families there. I wonder why you have to have between 100 and 2000 characters?

Cons: None

I try to come here once a week if I can. It's great to meet friends after work for some dinner and drinks, the food is excellent and plentiful, and the drinks are good and strong! I stopped by for breakfast last weekend, and it was excellent - I'll be doing that more often.

Pros: The food, the atmosphere, the service, the prices!

Cons: Only open for breakfast on the weekends

.

The service I recieved when dining here was snotty and dismissive. I got the clear idea that I was interrupting some personal conversation when I had the nerve to order a drink from the bartender. Worse yet, when I asked for a menu it appeared to be a huge issue that I actually wanted to sit down and have my order taken. The dining room was dirty and the furniture was shabby. All of that aside, I might still have had an ok evening if the food had just been edible.

Pros: They are very close to Pizza Fino making it easy to find decent food elsewhere

Cons: dirty bathroom, dirty dining room, noisy, greasy food, terrible service

.

We go to the Kenton Station about once a week with family or friends. The food is great, and their nightly specials are amazing. The cook makes a mean chicken parmesan!

Pros: No more smoking, video games for kids, good food

Cons: lack of parking on a busy night

Every time I have had the misfortune of frequenting this establishment I have left it sorry I even bothered. The menu consists of mostly frozen or reconstituted items that are both unappetizing and uninspired. And yes, I do realize it IS bar food, but that just brings me to my next point.

Is it a bar? Is it a restaurant? In trying to be both I find that it fails at both. Even if the food weren't a sham this is no place to enjoy a decent meal because of all of the poorly supervised children running amuck. (I have it on good authority that many of said children actually belong to the establishment's owners. Tsk.)

Having said that, if you are opting to pop in for a quick drink and forego the shabby cuisine be prepared for a badly made cocktail served to you by staff who clearly cannot be paid to care.

And the ambiance? This is where Kenton Station really hits it out of the park. This bar-straunt is consistently populated by the same tired faces night after night. And while a bar with such loyal regulars is generally considered to be a good thing I have to insist it is not so in this case.

Generally speaking, Kenton's regulars are of the breed that drink where ever it is close enough to still stumble home regardless of how irresponsibly they were over served. But who am I to judge? It may just be that they drink to blur the mismatched seat covers or to take the sting out of the deplorable service.

Pros: This group of clowns is sure to make you feel better about your life in comparison

Cons: The food, the drink, the service

A great, unpretentious restaurant and pub that's worth your time to investigate. Great food and terrific service - even during busy periods - make Kenton Station a great destination for lunch, dinner, or connecting with friends. Classic motorcycles adorn the large front windows, and there are more high-def TVs then you can shake a stick at. If it feels friendly, that's because it is - on your second or third visit, chances are you'll realize you've come to know the staff and some of the regulars. Walk right up and introduce yourself to owner James - you'll see him, he's always making the rounds checking on everyone, serving up meals, and introducing patrons to each other. Kenton Station is THE destination in NW PDX for the Super Bowl party and chili cook-off! At any given time, there always seems to be something fun happening or coming up soon.

The building is historic (built in the early 1900's, it's served as a speakeasy, an underground boxing ring, apartments - you name it) but for me it's the friendliness that keeps me coming back. Everyone seems happy to be there, the food is great, and I've never once had a bad time at Kenton Station. It's a great example of the best of Portland.

Pros: fun atmosphere, great food, unpretentious, fun area to walk around and enjoy

The cook is fantastic with multi talents from burgers to special dishes, including seafood, italian, battered foods.....and large portions. I enjoy a glass of wine with most meals and the toddy is my favorite. The staff is friendly and exceptionally attentive. It includes free pool! My nearly 89 year old father enjoys that! And anything Italian with his wine.
We go for evening meals mostly but hope to go for the taco bar and breakfast more often. Good to have a regular hang out. Good TV viewing, etc.

So I was pleasantly surprised by this pub. I guess there is a new owner, and he's trying to breath some new life into this neighborhood bar. We sat at the bar top before snagging a booth on the non-smoking side. It really was like an episode of cheers in there. The owner was bullshitting with the customers and the bartender seemed to know everyone's name, even though I heard her say she's new there.

There was an interesting mix of people in there. The cook was cute, the waitress was super old school, and the bartender was young seemed like she knew what she was doing and produced a lemondrop for me that was way better than I would have expected from the outside of the bar looking in. There was a soccer team, a bunch of football fans, some kinda hipster-hippie looking people, and all the local characters at the bar top.

Neither of us realised there was a full kitchen in there, so we decided to move to a booth and have lunch. We had a monster burger and a rueben and neither of us could finish our food! Fat portions, cheap prices, and stiff drinks, I think we might have a new hang out.

I guess they serve breakfast on the weekends, so we'll be heading back there to nurse our hangover next weekend

Pros: strong drinks, big portions, friendly and cute bartenders, lots of room, people watching

Cons: smoking, but only on half

I love this local bar, free pool table, all the sports u need, and KT the bartender ROCKS!!!! I hang out at the station a frequently and the service is as great as the food!! I highly recommend the clam "steaks" they are HUGE and yummy! The patty melt is just as you'd like it and the beer battered fries are super tastey! The beer options are perfect! You really can't go wrong, big dinning area, big bar, outside seating, and really friendly staff and patrons. They have fun events often and KT the bartender is what you'd hope all bartenders would be! You need it she's got it, with a big smile and fast service and a good chat!! My favorite local in PDX hands down!

Go here if you don't want to wait in line at the hipster place next door. The food is cooked with love-you can taste it! They have Kokanie and Guinness on tap and yummy sandwiches. On holidays- do come by and try out the spread. It's like going over to a friends house...The owner James is seen here and is friendly. The drinks are strong and tasty.
Check it out!

Kenton Station is GREAT! They are always attentive, pour great drinks and the owner Larry, always stops by to check up on you. Only place in the area that is worth going to! Best price steak and shrimp, great happy hour. All-in-all, you can't beat The Kenton Station!

The Kenton Station has always been a favorite of my family, who has been going to it for several years now. To say that this places has the best service I've ever witnessed would be an understatement - All the waiters and waitresses are extremely friendly, as well as quick and accurate. The atmosphere is extremely laid back and relaxing.
The menu is somewhat limited (Hamburgers, fish'n chips, sandwiches), but what they do they do great. I can easilly say that they serve the best hamburgers I've ever had.
Overall, I'd have to say that this place is pretty awesome.
