We first saw Nosh on an episode of Man vs Food, so had to visit whilst in Portland. Nosh had a chilled out atmosphere, a great selection of drinks and a varied selection of burgers. We ordered the Nosh Mac 'N Stack burger, which was OK, but probably not the best choice and the famous Apocalypse Now Burger, which fully... More

Best. Burger. Ever. Probably some of the most peculiar pairings on a burger I have ever seen, but boy do they work! Bacon Dusted Fries, with a large selection of sauces. 'nuff said

I've visited Nosh five or six times over the past year or so, and I've had a great meal every time. Don't go if you're on a diet. Don't go if you're not hungry. This place dies not skimp on the calories or the flavor. Big delicious burgers with super creative ingredients, delicious fries with a menu of dipping sauces,... More

I've been to NOSH in the past and reviewed it, but I felt it was necessary again. We went in on a Friday night, waited maybe 20 minutes and food came out fairly quickly. The fried pickle spears are the BEST fried pickles I've ever had. I had the crispy avocado sandwich, which comes out on grilled naan and probably... More

What's great spot right down from my favorite dinner locale 555. Great and I mean great sandwiches! If you like alcohol you should def try the garden gimlet! Really really good! I would recommend this eatery to anyone and get there early cause the place is always full! Nice job all the staff make it great

We stopped here when we were in town for business. Nice, young atmosphere. Not too loud, even though there is a bar in the main part of the dining room. We had the Nosh burger (bacon, fried egg, blue cheese and garlic balsamic sauce) and the cheeseburger (lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle) along with buffalo fries. The burgers were great....good...

If you are tired of the normal bar food, try Nosh. Great beer choices too. My only complaint is the staff seemed more interested in talking to each other than interacting with the customers. However the food made me forget about the staff altogether.

We had lunch there on a cold blustery day. Servings are plentiful and nicely presented. The atmosphere is spare and well done. Service is excellent. My partner liked it better than I did. I usually don't eat beef.
