The low ceilings are exactly the ambiance I need when going to a pub. Keeps the atmosphere cozy and chill. Much better now that there's no smoking, though... used to be hard to breathe there!

Another dive bar full of young hipsters. This place is alright but SE has better spots. Really dark and not that exciting. Staff can be nice, this is the sister bar to the dirty ol Crow bar

I've been coming to this place for years, but likely won't go back. The service has finally gotten to me. It's consistently poor, but tonight was an all time low. Oh well. Plenty of better places without the bad attitude coming from behind the bar. The food is pretty bad too, so it's no real loss.

Was int town from tacoma, looking fro a non pretentious, fun, dive bar my fiancee, a friend fo orus and I could go to , be relaxed, have some inexpensive drinks and enjoy a good evening.
We found the Basement pub on Citysearch, sounded like our kind of place so we went.
We were FAR from disappointed, had a great time, the owner purchased us some drinks, the bar is just as it is billed, like your friends rec room.
I got to watch my Pats beat the Giants on their TV then relaxedo n the old comfy couches while I enjoyed Hamms & played some Pac Man.
Point being this was an awesome place, I will be bacl again for sure and have recommended it to all my friends who go to or through Portland.

Pros: comfortable, inexpensive drinks

Cons: none I could see

Cool place to lounge that might as well be a friend's house...too small to have a bunch of idiotic drunks in and they only serve beer.

Cool style and a worth bar to check out if you haven't yet.

My friends and I have frequented this pub on Sunday nights for the last few months. I used to think it was a gem. However, last night the service was so terrible that I won't go back. The women bartenders seem to be pretty good at this place but the guy... total Portland hipster who can't take the time to be bothered with pouring you a drink. My friend and I waited and waited, watching him do anything else possible but get us our beers. Finally he looked up at us and I told him what I wanted but he actually served the people behind us first. Yeah. It was ridiculous. As a Portland native, this type of thing is exactly what I'm beginning to hate about this city. There are many other places to go on a Sunday night.

Simple and sweet little beer pub. Fun and good times to be had. Good pinball and a real nice fish tank! Great place to meet up with friends or find new ones.
