I love this place! They have really good food, it's tight quarters but totally fun! They also have really good live music, which makes for an enjoyable evening with friends. As busy as it is each time I've been there, I still get exceptional service!

I love this place not only because it is haunted but it is like stepping back in time. They have awesome pub food and strong drinks, just the type of stuff all those old sailors would want when they came in off the docks!

Just went for our first time last Saturday and really enjoyed it. It was the first time for belly dancing there and we were really glad we got to see them perform. Each dancer was awesome, unique and fun to watch. We liked that they really got the crowd involved. Very cool! We really enjoyed the drummer and guitar player that started it all off, great music guys! Really a fun place to relax and see something different - we could tell the performers were having as much fun as we were.... oh and we liked the food and good prices too. Will definitely be going back and taking our friends with us.

If you are a musician, or simply a music lover, this is absolutely, hands-down THE best place to catch an open mic in the city of Portland. Not only is the audience consistently attentive, the musicians that play White Eagle on Sunday night open mic are incredibly talented. I myself play there, and while I consider myself talented, I am always impressed, even intimidated by the high caliber of music that other musicians play. Blues, folk, country, rock, you name it-- the Portland musicians that come here are top of the line.

Sunday night at 8 is when you want to come to the White Eagle. Trust me, you will have a blast, either playing guitar on stage or simply soaking up the good vibes.

And no, I do not work there. :) I am just stoked to have found a great, respectful place to play my songs, and to listen to others, too.

Pros: EXCELLENT music on Sunday nights, NON-smoking

Cons: Beers are over $4, food is a bit expensive

I've lived in Portland fo 4 months. I heard that McMinamin's bars are where it's at, and that is false. This bar is nothing special. As is the Chapel Pub and Kenned y School. Just another bar. There are better micro breweries out there (Amnesia and 5th Quadrant in the same neighborhood). No thanks.

A lot of your typical tavern stuff that is simple and fits the bill. Service was down to Earth and plesant. Food was your typical fair. When you want to get away from the trendy trendy, this is the place.

Great atmosphere - dark and well decorated. Great music venue too - they have a great assortment of bands.

I loved the White Eagle for good service, decent food, and often great music when I used endure smoke and inhale it often myself. I may sound like a 30-something prig now, but I just can't go back until smoking is banned from indoors. Why not restrict it to just the patio? The McMenamin brothers should just ban smoking all together and pioneer where Oregon is heading anyway. I genuinely believe that they would attract more patrons, not less, and that their workers would be grateful for the extra time that they will be able to live. Also, I like the drinks.

Pros: good service, decent food, varied and affordable music

Cons: I just can't stand smoking in bars anymore...I am an anti-smoking fascist.

The White Eagle has always been a great place to hang out, eat, drink and listen to music. Now that the McMenamin's have moved in it has only gotten better. The place is small but the atmosphere is amazing; very laid back and unique and rumored to have a resident ghost. The McMenamin's didn't have to do much to "funk-ify" this place. They have remodeled the upstairs and turned it into a hotel and have added a patio for outdoor dining & drinking. The patio has the added benefit of providing wheelchair access, which was almost impossible before. The food is excellent; they make the best BLT on the planet.

The only reason I decided to visit this pub is because it is suppossedly haunted. Walking in to this place is like walking into an old fashioned saloon dated back in the early 20th century. A large bar runs the length of the place with brass fixtues and a mirror behind the bartender. The old clunkity cash register reminds you of a time before electronics. The building used have a brothel upstairs where the regular folks would go, but the downstairs brothel is where the "negative" energy is suppossedly stored. On my visit, I did not "see" anything unusual, but it did have a feel of history to it. As for the beer and food? Just your typicaly McMenamin's menu, always good, always a good deal. My visit was during lunch, but I hear there are some good local bands that stir up the energy.

PROS: Historic pub with live local music
CONS: Could be "haunted", don't come if you attract ghosts.

I'm not a huge McMenamins' fan, but I like The White Eagle. Billed as a "rock'n'roll saloon" it sports the historic look of the place while hosting decent bands that usually fall under the "americana" category. It stays true to the sense of a saloon with an actual hotel with rooms upstairs for $30-$50 a night. What more could a hard drinking womanizer/man-eater want? The staff is attractive, compotent, and agile with the CD player with tunes by Bowie, MJ, Wilco, The Faces, Yono Oko, Neutral Milk Hotel and Blackalicious (and those were just the artists I heard within two hours). Low marks for the food because it's like all the other McMenamins (not bad food, but once you eat at Chili's, you've eaten ate Chilli's. You know?).

Pros: Barstaff, Music (staff's/bands), Atmosphere

Cons: , Out of the way

The White Eagle is a relaxing place to enjoy great music. It's an old brick building, supposedly a biker bar and brothel in earlier lives. Tapestries hang on the walls, there's a small stage in the back, the food is great (it's a McMenamins now). There's a nice little outdoor area off the back, perfect for sipping great microbrews on summer evenings while folk music wafts out from the band on stage.

When this watering hole opened in 1905, Portland was a rollicking boomtown with a reputation for fun. A century later, the place is still rocking. In the last few decades, the White Eagle has hosted countless rock bands and established…
