Visited Bridgeport during my most recent trip to Portland. None of their beers in the bottle really excite me but I was denied service when I was there back in 2006 due to the bartender thinking my Tennessee driver's license was a fake. This return trip was to see what I missed out on.
Nice atmosphere inside. Lots of stainless steel, lots of wood, and an abundance of exposed brick. A very cozy and relaxing place for sure; my wife and I opted to head to the loft upstairs.
Service was good. Our server was quick to the point without much flair and we were served quickly. She was the only server for the packed loft and not once did I find myself wonder where the food/drinks were. Definetley a job well done.
The beers are all about average if not a little better. They run a $3 pint special at happy hour served in imperial pint glasses.
My wife and I split a pizza that was among one of the best pizzas I have ever had. For dessert we split a chocolate bread pudding that was also worth mentioning. The dessert paired wonderfully with the ping of Blackstrap stout I was sipping on. That combination receives my highest recommendation.
The value was very good. One wild Oregon mushroom pizza, two pints each for my wife and me for a total of four pints, and one chocolate bread pudding came to a total of $35...tip included.
I would recommend this place for a relaxing evening and enjoyable time with friends. The beer is not the best, but the value makes it better. I am moving to Portland in May and you will be able to find me at Bridgeport during happy hour on occasion.
