Meeting after the meeting Great service and staff Great combo pizzas, just like the old fashioned days. The atmosphere was bar rustic, very comfortable and relaxed Great tacos and salads.

Wow! This place gets 6 stars for having great food, fine ass servers, awesome facility and overall, HIPSTER-FREE. Get the Asian Kale salad. It’ll blow you away. Everything that’s grilled is done on mesquite so the flavor of the tangy chicken they add to that salad is tits!

Went here last Sunday after playing a football game to watch some SNF and have a drink & dinner. Was surprised with how big the menu was and how many different options they had. All types of food from wings, mac and cheese, tacos, burgers, and funny enough a great looking breakfast menu. I will have to go back in the morning to try it out. I had a chicken sandwich with waffle fries. Fries were awesome and other food on the table looked delicious as well. There was also a good selection of beer to choose from. There was a large group of us and service was really good. Highly recommend checking it out.

Had a great 1st experience and recently went back for my second. Food is really good, service is prompt and the food selection is wide. Only thing keeping me from rating as 5 star is how big the menu is. Personal preference, the menu is has so many things! This can be a good thing or a bad thing but for me, i had a hard time deciding. Although both times i went, i got two different things and both times was a positive experience..Great food/drink specials during football season as well.

Love everything about this place, we have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. From breakfast, to happy hour, to birthday dinners, they’re the best. The food is amazing, staff is friendly, and the environment is great. Our only complaint is that we don’t live closer!

Among the best pub food in Portland. Great drinks, especially the spicy Bloody Marys. Friendly staff. A bit loud with all the sports screens but a great hangout.

I had an amazing dining experience with my server allison! She was very knowledgeable with the menu and had me laughing the entire time!! If only she wasn’t a packers fan… The Kobe beef sliders were delicious. Will absolutely be back.

Good food and drink! Worthog Stew was kicking out the jams the night I was there. Fun!

We picked Buffalo to grab a few drinks with friends on a Saturday mid-afternoon; we ended up having a late lunch. The menu is extensive: breakfast, appetizers, lunch, late night + desserts. Great selection of beer, wine and spirits. The Asian Kale Chop Chop salad was FANTASTIC, kobe beef sliders – AMAZING, the sweet potato fries hit the spot and the wings were good (but nothing to write home about.) Then came the cinnamon bun – OMGoodness – stop in here for that alone. They are freshly made everyday and HUGE! We split one between the four of us. Our waitress was friendly, fast and helpful. The drinks hit the spot. I gotta say – it is all you could ask for in a laid-back, NON-PRETENTIOUS pub. This spot is the real deal.

Quirky added on building with a quirky menu. Works for me. They cook their food well and provide a wide range of choices ranging from tacos & breakfast to burgers & sandwiches. I had the Beet Burger with fried egg and feta cheese. Everything’s about $10-11. Worth a visit.

My husband and I went here on our first date, over 29 years ago, and are very pleased to have returned. I had the Garlic Lamb Hash, which was simply fabulous! I love how the restaurant is situated and each room has a different feel. While we were there, a gentleman found out it was our anniversary and bought us lunch. What a heartwarming place you have!! It won’t be so long before our next visit! Only thing I can say is I wish the breakfast/brunch was on separate menu. When your tastebuds are ready for lunch and server hasn’t told you it’s only breakfast, it’s just a little bit disappointing.

Great food and fantastic service. The Full Rack of Ribs is huge and so tender it falls off the bone. Great flavor and reasonable prices. Megan and Summer are the best! If you hold a private party be sure to ask for them.

Best Philly steak sandwich ever wild Philly cheese. A must have. With au jus.

How people give this place anything less than 4 stars confuses me. This place is awesome and has everything you want in a place to eat, drink, relax, or just hide from society. Corn beef hash no joke the best I have ever tried. The staff was awesome and down to earth. I’m just pissed it took me two days to find this place. No joke this will be my Portland go to spot every time I’m in town.

Great food, service and atmosphere. It is one of my husband and my favorite bars!

Many family and friends gathered there last evening and had a room reserved. We were remembering and celebrating the life of our sister, daughter, friend who had died 6 years ago. We had gathered at the Gap last year and returned because the service and food was great. This year was better than ever with special thanks to our splendid waitperson, Leslie! She was amazing and so pleasant and calm as she took care of this gang. Thank you so much and we will return next year for sure!

I come here every time I’m in town. Megan and Summer are the best bartenders/servers in Portland. If you have a company meeting ask for them! Good quality is fantastic. My favorites are the Ribs and Fish and Chips. If you haven’t been here you should. Great food, great people!

If you’re in the Johns Landing area of Portland and lunch is calling, then a trip into the well known Buffalo Gap Saloon & Eatery should be on your list of places to eat. This iconic bar has been around for years and years, and it shows. The place could use a makeover, but that would ruin the atmosphere, so let it alone I say. The bison head in the bar area has welcomed patrons for many years, and hopefully for many to come too. The menu is expansive, the beer selection is good. I had the PBLT sandwich and slaw as a side. Both were very good. The service was cheery and quick at lunchtime. Recommended.

It was getting late and we needed a bite to eat. We were driving along and spotted this fun spot. Upstairs bar had a private party with a band – we were worried it would be too loud in the restaurant, but not a problem. We ordered dinner salads (dressings were both excellent) and then split a grilled chicken sandwich with bacon and avocado and a side of fries. Tasty, prepared to order and prepared exactly as ordered. Good cold beer too! Lots of TVs with variety of sports. Pool table room, clean restrooms, good and friendly service. Would come back here again if we are in the area.
