Railside Pub

Is it open? Hard to tell since the only vehicle parked in the lot was a hearse, but we ventured in anyway. What a hidden gem! Perfect size, cozy but not claustrophobic.Clean without the acrid smell of industrial strength disinfectant. Lighter than most dives, but acceptable. Foosball and pool table. A few video poker machines unobtrusively lined up against one wall (what is it with Portlanders and video poker anyway?).

Delightful bartender named Ash who made us feel welcome (will need to check out her Danse Macabre Gallery sometime at Hollywood Vintage).

Turns out this little joint makes a whole lot of tasty food, much of it housemade. Ash steered us toward the French dip and so glad she did! Prime rib and grilled onions piled onto a grilled roll with au jus and REAL horseradish on the side (by request). The meat (from Gartner’s just down the street) and au jus are made right there on site and were super tasty. Came with an enormous side of perfectly fried tots for an excellent value. The jalapeno poppers were awesome and again, giant order. We couldn’t even finish them, and that’s rare!

The day we were there they had 3 craft beer taps and one cider tap.

Smallish, well-worn bar. Protected smoking shelter out back.
