Know Before You Go
COVID-19 has created challenges for bars and restaurants — their hours, menus and more are changing all the time. Consider double-checking the details of a given happy hour before your visit.
This classic American grill in downtown Portland specializes in great meat and seafood, simply prepared.

Happy hour from 4-6 p.m. daily
Life of Pie Pizza
