    What kind of restaurant or bar? Just walk around and you'll find something. Or head for the food pods and sample.

    That question is too vague to give you an adequate answer. What types of food / drink do you like? Portland has a wide variety of eateries and depending on your tastes can put you in many different areas.

    This. I know plenty of great places, but your taste and budget are important. Otherwise, McDonalds it is.

    If you're really looking to treat yourself and have a good time, try Huber's Café. Gotta get one of their famous Spanish Coffees.

    Yes. I realize my post was vague. Sorry. I enjoy seafood.. Asian food is my favorite. Maybe a good Italian resturant. As for bars .. I like great microbrews.. local Oregon beers are great. Maybe a bar that has great variety on tap.. also any good martini bars?

    Well if beer is your taste, there are some fantastic pubs in town!! I particularly like Rogue Brewery in the Pearl.

    Rogue Distillery & Public House (PDX)
    1339 NW Flanders
    Portland, OR 97209

    and if you like Japanese food, might I recommend: http://www.yelp.com/biz/sinju-sushi-portland I find their prices to be reasonable and the food is pretty damn good. I have taken non sashimi friends of mine that enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

    My advice start at the carts and get enough food in you to make a decent dinner decision. Take a nap, then go have a HUGE MEAL because then you should take a pub crawl through Portland.

    P.S. make sure your flight doesn't leave first thing in the morning. If you crawl through 1/4 the pubs in Portland you will not be up for flying any time soon!

    That and you need to have breakfast at Mothers before you leave..

    CHEERS!!!

    I love Huber's and go every time I'm in Portland. Like Scotticus said...the show they put on when making their Spanish Coffees is awesome!

    Plus, Huber's is Portland's oldest restaurant!! A cool piece of history.

    The famous place for seafood is Jakes, but it's also sort of spendy. (There are two locations sort of close - look for the one with the crawfish sign.)

    Actually, I was walking downtown a couple of weeks ago and saw half a dozen new places to try. It's not hard to find something.

    But on the other side of the coin:

    Avoid the long lines at Deschutes brew pub. I don't get it. The beer is good but the food is awful. Also any establishment in the vast McMenamin Brothers empire. Awesome funky venues, average beer, the food sucks.
