I wouldn't suggest it for a quiet meeting or for having a large selection of drinks if you don't like beer but it is a good location and when you can plan ahead and get a table reserved it is brilliant for groups. Not suggested if you are walking in off the street.

Date night with wifey and we both enjoyed our time here. Tasty food (Portland burger) paired with the perfect craft brew (Lost Coast tangerine wheat ale). The food and beer hit the spot for sure. We'll be back.

Excellent choice of high end craft beer.
Fun menu but a bit limited.
Service was excellent.
There needs to be a better way to read the beers on the chalk board menu - very difficult to read so much harder on the waitress.
Great prices

Staff was very friendly and beer was great but food quality was poor and took a long time. It was also too loud and hard to be comfortable and talk to others.

Overall it was a nice meal. They didn’t have quite a few things we ordered. The red wine was not stocked. We the ordered the Prosecco as the alternative, they returned to say they didn’t have that either. With dinner it wasn’t until the food was delivered did they tell us they didn’t have the halibut available so one party needed to order an alternative which came well after the rest of us had eaten. Other than that the food was decent and the service as attentive.

The server was very attentive to our large group. He personalized a shot for the bride to be, which she said was delicious, the food was amazing. Great vegetarian options. The beer selection is amazing and the ones I tried in a flight were delicious!

Came in to have some drinks before the Canadians game and reserved a table online prior to arriving.

Once seated, the server told us he'd be back with menus. Waited about 10 minutes, he came over and said he'd be " right with us" though again, we hadn't even received menus yet. Once we did receive them we quickly ordered drinks and food. The food was underwhelming considering the limited options and pace of service. Had high hopes but wouldn't recommend to others. Better spots in the area for better service/ quality.

On the way to looking divey even though that's not their point. Food was ok. Capricola on their meat pizza is diced instead of sliced like normal pizza toppings.

Food, beer, locale and service were all great. Not sure why but they didn't have our reservation. Still ended up with a great spot. Great variety of local and regional craft beers.

Our out-of-town visitor wanted to sample some local craft beer, so we brought her here and got it half right. As its name suggests, Portland Craft does serve craft beers, but its focus is on American West Coast brews. There is a wide selection on tap, offered in 3 serving sizes: taster, half, and full. The menu has snacking items as well as good brewpub fare for meals. We enjoyed the Portland Burger, Cod Burger, and Borscht and Salad; the Charcuterie Platter ordered by the next table looked tempting. The modern 2-storey room is open and cavernous, with seating at the bar, or at tables or in booths. It looks like they made an attempt to dampen the acoustics by suspending bags of barley? malt? from the ceiling, but when the place is full, the sound level in combination with the house DJ makes conversation difficult. Service was friendly and attentive, if forgetful. We weren't given water, cutlery, and ketchup at first, but once we asked our waiter, it all quickly appeared from his magic cupboard nearby. Kids are welcome, and customers included families, couples, and people of all ages.

Food and service were amazing! Washrooms were not though .... the bartender seemed irritated and disregarded my guests and I when we brought it to his attention. I guess he was too busy??

I had the burger. It looked so good but was super salty. Just my burger. The other burger my friend had was fine. The drink selection was great. Love trying the flights of beer and bourbons. Reasonably priced.

A great brew pub on Main and 22nd. We had a party of 10, which they accommodated nicely. The shared plates were perfect for our crowd. A good place for a group to get together.

Great ambience and service was good. Beer selection is great.
The only concern was that one of our friends apparently didn’t leave a tip (It was separate bills. Please know that I did leave a tip) but it appeared that tip was taken out of another friend’s bill - if that did happen, I hope it doesn’t happen again. We’re happy to leave a tip as customers but do not necessarily like to have that assumed/forced on us.
The lady that served us was helpful in suggesting beer choices.

Always a good meal at Portland Craft! The menu changes to provide variety but the old faves are always there. And the new ones are worth a try. Fabulous beer menu too!

Gone to Portland many times as my girlfriend lives in the area and it's becoming a favourite. They have an outstanding happy hour menu for food and drinks that runs in the evening and latenight. It's usually not too hard to get a table and they have a long table for large groups, had no trouble getting my bday party for 20 in with a reservation. Always changing the taps so they're guaranteed to have your favourite beer at one point or another! Food is great fresh pub fare and comfort food.

Loved the service and drink selection. Great choices of beer and wine was 1/2 off for a bottle !!

Better GF options/ clearer options would make this place my all time favorite. I felt a little limited in what I could eat.

Loved the large tables . We came on a Sunday evening for a friends birthday.

Randomly picked this restaurant to have a bite before going to the baseball game. All four of us enjoyed our meals and the ambience. Our vegetarian enjoyed the selection, and his choice of the pulled “pork” sliders made with jackfruit. The very best thing that will bring us back, was the absolutely yummy dipping sauce, the scallion honey aioli. It was so good we ordered 3 extras and one to take home with our leftovers! Great find, really enjoyable outing.

Awesome! Had a great time for my birthday party on a Friday night with a group of twelve people. Food was great and music was very good too. I should have asked for Argentinian music, because the first time I was there on a Tuesday there was a playing list with some Argentinian rock music, which I was fascinated by! Lovely place!

I did some researched of this place online, I found some good reviews and the rating is good that's why I decided to bring my friends here to celebrate my birthday.

Food and the price were fair but the waitress who served us aren't very friendly. She came by the table and ask if we are ordering drink, then just walk away(doesn't look very happy) then want to move us to another table if we only have two people, which all the tables beside us were seated two people too, why move us? Then my third friend came later and want to order some food, she completely ignored my friend, went to the front to put down something, then come back and take order (can't even say a word)

I don't think I will ever come back again.

Our group had another purpose nearby and needed to meet briefly ahead of this engagement, to talk through the plans. Portland was close and took our reservation, honoured our need to be fairly quick with our meal and get on to the next stage of the evening. I have personally enjoyed this place on a number of occasions so was already sure of the food quality and choices. Everything worked very much to plan.

Always a pleasure to go to Portland Craft. We live in the neighborhood and it's become our "local". Whether eating in or taking out, the food is consistently top notch.
