Okay. Seriously where has this restaurant been all my life. If I wasn't in public I could have cried at how good the food was. Honestly the huevos rancheros were so good.. It was like nothing I've ever had before. My bf got chicken and waffles. Both were equally as good. He couldn't stop raving about the bacon (I don't... More

We went for breakfast on a Tuesday morning in February, and we were seated right away. My daughter ordered the Praline bacon, and I have to say it was the best thing I've ever tasted. We also ordered a buttermilk biscuit on the side and the hash - delicious. The biscuit was so light and flaky - melted in my... More

There were so many mouth-watering dishes that I just ordered the fried chicken with collared greens and mashed potatoes. It was excellent. I'll be going back to try the shrimp and grits!

Be there early for the seating as a line forms and only a limited sitting is available. Good southern treats. Sit outside if you want a quieter setting - especially for vintage ears. Good options with a range of southern foods. Fresh options change regularly. The sampler has more than enough food. Fried chicken is very well prepared.

My wife had Screen Door on her wish list for quite a while so when the opportunity came up to make it over to east Portland for breakfast, we took advantage of it. Screen Door is a cozy cafe that can get very busy--for good reasons. We arrived moderately early but still had a bit of a wait. They seated... More

We went for dinner on the weekend and the line seemed long and from what I hear that's par for the course. Fortunately it was just 2 of us and the rest of the line was made up of larger parties so it was only a 20 minute wait. I had the chicken and my girlfriend had the steak special.... More

I have been to this restaurant numerous times but never made the time to wait in the ever present hour long line to get in. We got lucky on an icy day last week and were able to get a table right away. The food and service were very good and the selection was amazing. Although I am still not... More

I'm not from the South, but I wanted to try some Southern food. I tried the Screen Door plate with grits, collard greens, and drumsticks. The grits were creamy and the drumsticks had great seasoning and were crisp! First time trying collard greens and I'll definitely try them again. The wait wasn't too long for two, 45 mins, I've heard... More

I mean, really. Cheesy grits, Oyster Poorboy, Chicken and waffles, oh my. Lively place with bustling kitchen and there could be wait to be seated but worth it. You can order regular bkfasts or lunch if you want but iam reaching out the Frittata today.

Thank PTDreamer
