Came here late with a friend from work who had been here before. It was quite loud and active when we arrived after 1am. Ordered food and drinks. Drinks were large and fresh and I had the fondue fries. Now let me tell you about these fries. I am going to marry them. They are the best fries I've had.... More

This is a raw, loud, rough, old school rap, tattoo, bar that you won't get if you think you are above them. The food was surprisingly amazing. I don't always use that word. Never before have I had good grits. Pulled pork Benny was excellent. Biscuit N gravy was better then moms. The tall skinny kid needs to not smoke... More

Service was great, food was excellent and very reasonably priced. There were two downsides, they don't accept all major credit cards and you order from the bar and they bring your food to the table. However the food and drinks are definitely worth it.

Despite being full of loud hipsters, this place is significantly not terrible thanks to not having their music loud (even when the DJ started playing), a defined line for the bar (there's a sign), and bartenders and servers that are pleasant in the face of an endless crowd. Yes, they have a menu of drinks served in mason jars and... More

Crowded during happy hour but great drinks in mason jars. This is just an average little bar with mostly overpriced drinks. Oddly, they let people sit at the tables outside without buying anything from the bar.

This bar was so much fun, great drinks and really good food. The spring rolls were amazing! Would go back without fail every visit to Portland!

It was very busy the drinks were good and innovative. I had the BLT which was disappointing but the rest of the gang where happy with their choices. Price not too bad.

We met friends for drinks and food at "jolly hour" just after Swift opened at 5:30 pm on Saturday. It was our first time there but another couple has been there several times previously and recommended it. It is fairly dark inside and quite small but, as one of our group put it (and which I attributed to the intimacy... More

For a vegetarian late night snack there are several choices on the menus as side dishes. I loved the light and tasty Brusell sprouts : these were outstanding and a very generous potion.

Swift is for one thing and one thing only. The Fatties. They call their large drinks Fatties and they are worth the price. Not only are they delicious, but a discerning palette can taste the balance and harmony in each cocktail. My wife enjoyed the Chimney Swift and I enjoyed the Kentucky Blackbird. Don't plan on ordering beer here. Try... More
