For a good chuckle, read the 'Full of kids and rude' review. The reviewer is apparently trying to blame Alameda Brewing Company for the types of dogs that walk by on the sidewalk, and also muses about what type of neighborhood Beaumont

My husband and I went into the Alameda Brewhouse for the first time recently and I was pleasantly surprised! They have a huge menu, and really great drinks. The only problem was our waitress had B.O. really bad! Would go back, just hoping we don't get the same server.

I have recommended this pub to friends in the past, but have been disappointed in my last visits. Ordered a hamberger medium rare, it came medium/done. I asked to substitute a salad for fries and was charged $3 extra for a very, very small salad. The burger and bread were very dry. However, the beer as always was excellent.

The Alameda Brew House is an awesome place to eat. From the outside you might not think it was the greatest place, but let me tell you, it was a great place.

What a great neighborhood place to go in the summer time. Best fried food I have ever eaten...let alone the "Brewskis" are very different and very good as well. I have not been in the winter, but i will this year.

We had the worst dinner experience we could have had. The food was OK, but not great so that didn't make it any better. We wanted to sit outside and the waitress seemed like it was a pain for us to be the only ones out there that she had to wait on. She didn't ask if we needed anything else when she delivered the food so I had to go back inside and ask for some mayo, and when we ordered it was sort of like "what do you want". I'm not sure what the draw of Beaumont Village is, because everyone we encountered was rude. There was a real estate broker outside on his cell phone trying to pitch his services to someone and he wouldn't go away or stop talking really loudly in our ear for about 15-20 minutes. Everyone we saw going inside had young children. I'm not sure when brew houses became family establishments, but that isn't what I'm looking for when I want to drink a beer and relax. We had our very well behaved, super cute dog with us and no one walking by seemed to acknowledge our presence at all. Way too snobby of a crowd for us. It was very hot, so we asked the waitress for a lighter beer suggestion and the one she suggested was really boring. It tasted like an over-priced PBR. We also had a rather unsavory looking couple walk by with their 2 pit bull/boxer mix dogs who tried to attack our dog when he was laying down behind my fiance doing nothing. When the dogs started barking and growling, they started attacking each other. It was a very scary situation especially with the number of kids that were around the general area. I'm not sure what that area of Freemont is normally like, but this was a very bad experience.

We went to Alameda Brew Pub on a Saturday night. There was a HUGE line of people waiting to be seated. We decided that the Bar was a more appropriate place to sit since there was just 2 of us...and we were hungry. Upon sitting down, we were immediately greeted by a bartender who had asked if we had ever been there before. Since we had not she brought over a listing of their beers and explained them all. We even tried a few before making out selections. Great selection of foods...I had the burger and my boyfriend had chicken nachos. I grew up in the mid-west...and no matter where you ate a burger, they always asked you how you wanted it cooked....to me, this is a good sign of a great burger to come. So, my medium-rare burger was unbelievable! The chicken nachos were huge and sooo tasty. We made friends with a bunch of people sitting beside us, chatted with the staff, had a great time! We have now been back around 5 times.....in a month. We do not really live in the area but, it is so worth it. Last time we had chicken wings and chips & fish......all tasted wonderful! My new favorite place. Oh yeah.....the bartenders even recognize us now. Kinda feel like Norm!

My son got food poising from the seafood. Their crab bisque is no longer tastey either. This place is way over rated and I don't trust their food or how the kitchen handles it. Don't waste your money!

A girlfriend and I decided to stop here on our way to Mademoiselle Noelle's Fortune Tea House since there weren't a lot of dining options in the area. Our experience was sub-par. I would seriously rather eat at Applebee's than this place again. The food is overpriced and lackluster. I ordered a Philly cheese steak. The meat was chewy, the peppers overcooked, the bread soggy, and it came with a side of spaghetti sauce. I think cheese steaks normally come with au jus, but I'm not from Philadelphia and could very well be wrong about that. My friend ordered a salad and to have chicken added, which normally cost an additional $2 for all of the other salads on the menu, but she was charged $4 because she asked for "grilled" chicken instead of "regular" chicken, when there was no distinction outlined in the menu. Her average-sized (and average quality) salad came to a whopping $13. The beer was $4.50 a pint and was mediocre at the very most. You can get a much better microbrew at a place like Amnesia for less. The place also has very little atmosphere and reminded me of a corporate chain, like TGI Friday's, which is just unusual for Portland. There are SO many amazing restaurants in this town, don't waste your time or money at this place. Eating there was an insult to my palette.

I hardly can understand why this place is still in business, the food is not good at all and the beer is barely better. I've even given this place a few tries, because the first time could have been a fluke...I had falafel, dry, weird texture, maybe the kitchen was having an off night. No. I tried again, got a hamburger. It was edible but that was about it. If you want good food and beer there are so many great places in Portland to have these two things together, don't waste your time or money on this business.

The only reason people are waiting for tables at this establishment is that the only other two restaurants on Freemont worth eating at are not child friendly. Wildly uneven food, very average beer, and a staff that thinks that because they work at the ABH, they really don't need to pay attention to their customers, makes for a disapointing experience.

Don't hesitate to send back the french fries, which are more often than not on the down side of the freshness curve. Frozen, by the way - actually much food comes out of frozen bags here.

No kids? Brave the outdoors at Amnesia instead - best beer in Portland. Or go to Pause on Interstate and get perhaps the best fries in Portland, and a great selection of microbrews.

From the blank stares and sullen silence of the wait staff to the harsh faux-industrial corrugated-metal and cinder-block decor, this place is far from welcoming or comfortable. Hey folks, if you reclaim an ugly, utilitarian building from its industrial purpose and turn it into a pub, it's known as 'funky.' However, if you build ugly from scratch, on purpose, miles from any industrial district, you're known as 'stupid.' Also can we get a witness on the seemingly Guantanamo-inspired wooden-slat backs of the booth seating? Because they're TORTURE! Imagine some 2-inch rocking-chair runners spaced 2 inches apart, for you to lean your back against. My companion resorted to slouching against the cinder-block wall. Not a good sign if cold cinder blocks are more comfortable than the device you've built for the presumable purpose of sitting. Oh but it's so arty. Illuminated from underneath, the slat seat-back across the table from you disorients your eyes, while the one behind you clearly showcases the various dust-bunnies and women's hair that's fallen down in there. Didn't think of that, eh? And then of course, you can clearly see and hear the people in the next booth, so you can always listen in on their chatter if the two TVs blaring sports coverage don't provide enough annoying distraction from conversation with the people you came here with. The food was competently executed. The beer was competently brewed and served. Nothing I can't get elsewhere.

On one of the few times we've eaten at the brewhouse was especially memorable, there was
a booth open, but the waiter didn't want to let us have it, but we got it anyway, then he told us that
was the end of the good service, and we would have bad service from then on. Boy was he
right! I ordered a burger, it was over cooked, and dry, I finally got another gal to get me some
mayo, as he never dropped by our table after dropping off our food to check on us. The fries used to be so good, but now they are just average. The rootbeer is the best, I have to say, but the service is
not good. I guess they figure they are going to be busy reguardless, so why give good service!

I live nearby this restaurant, but I have only visited it a few times. The first time I went, right after it opened, I had high hopes. The beer was tasty enough, but the food I ordered was ok at best. On my next trip, same experience. I thought'd I'd give the place one more try because the beer is nice enough and the atmosphere fine. I ordered a turkey sandwich with cranberry spread thinking there wasn't much the kitchen could do to make that taste too bad. I was wrong. The bread was dry as was the turkey, the "cranberry' was nearly impossible to see, one of the worst sandwiches I have ever had. Even though I could walk here easily from home, I will not go back unless I hear their food has become a lot better.

Best beer battered fish and chips. Also try the seafood bisque and a generous side salad. Busy, with outside seating in the summer make a lively, neighborhood place. Generous servings for lunch. And the brew is good, too!

Worst evening out ever! My friend had to send her filet back 3 times and eat her cold potatoes and vegetables with a butter knife. Then the manager had the gall to ask her to pay for "half of the meal, because she ate half." We had to argue with him about what a crappy meal we had. What a joke! Not going there again--EVER! Have been there before and loved it, but after such poor customer service... SAD.

If you're looking for a micro brewer, look no further, especially if you are thinking about Laurelwood (PASS). They have the best burgers and beer. they are kid friendly and fun! Outside service may be slower but still worth it.

After an exhausting 13-hour workday, my husband and I wandered in to Alameda around 10:15 on a weeknight. Although the place was nearly deserted, we were still able to get food and there was none of that "we're kicking you out" mentality that you get at so many other places at closing time. Plus, the entire menu was still available. Had fried oysters; husband had turkey pot pie. Food was generously portioned and tasty. More choices than your average beer place. We'll be back!

Alameda's small nacho plate is one of the best deals in Portland - it's a heaping pile of chips, beans, cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos. The menu is eclectic but good and the Black Bear Stout (nitro) is an excellent beer. On the down side, the service is only so-so. We've taken family and friends here many times and we love the happy hours, when a plate of nachos and the spinach salad work wonders with a couple of signature beers.

The Alameda Brewhouse is in my neighborhood and we like to walk over with neighbors to get dinner. We appreciate the service, love to sit outdoors and enjoy the beer. The food, on the other hand, is not the reason to visit. The menu tries too hard to be eclectic and and they rarely serve something that's not too greasy, cold, etc. They just need to spend the same amount of time and care on their food as they do their beer.

Basically the first time I went here, was the beginning of a long-standing relationship. Now I go there every Thursday. (2.25 pints house beer Tues/Thurs) Food is high quality and filling. Servers in the past have been down-to-earth although with the recent loss of Phil or 'biscuit' we have noticed a little snootier attitude. But I still would never abandon my little home away from home ALAMEDA!

This is a great spacehigh ceilings and groovy light fixtures. Food options are better than the typical pub grub (this fish and chips and the onion rings are some of the best I've had in town). However, Ive encountered problems with inconsistent service from time to time (waiters have been on the rude or have calculated my bills incorrectly).
