BarFly's Review of Billy Ray's Neighborhood Dive
Servicing a proud community of aging punkers, unabashed drunkards and those new transplants so patently thrilled with Portland and northeast and an untroubled future of pool and enlightened jukeboxes and pennies-a-serving beer, Billy Ray’s eternally reminds of the morning after a good party.
The sign, when lit, reads only Tavern and the floorplan (shotgun first floor bar; rickety staircase to upstairs games ‘n couches) suggests a sharecropper frathouse, but, after a few steins of Pabst … you’d probably pledge.

I lived near there in the late 90's. What was it called right before it became Billy Ray's? I forgot.
Trying to figure out how to hang art work at this place,who do you have to blow to get a call back…Hey tyler
Pretty much a winning combination. Also their jukebox is great. The only down side is that its cash only.
...I've always loved this place. The only problem is I don't go enough! Comfy, like your stoner friend's living room, but with a better selection of beer and pinball.
I love this place. It's like the corner taverns of yesteryear that our grandfathers went for a draught beer on their way home after a long day of hard work but now magically transformed into this cool-ass place where their grandkids go to hang-out, drink a draught, play the juke and some pinball, unwind and socialize. It's like a kickass modern day Moe's.
I LOVE BILLY RAY'S!! They just went through a serious management change for the BEST! The Dive is just that! THE BEST! A great little place, warm and super-friendly staff! New manager-Mara is the sweetest thing! My people are really diggin' on the serious PINBALLERS that frequent the place. The Dive has a few 'TOTALLY AWESOME' P-ball machines, in the PIN-HOUSE-it's just the upstairs...people...nothin' fancy! Say good-bye to the Golden TEE-it's all about Crazy Flipper Fingers! CFF to all you that are not up on your Portland Pop Culture! They are one of the BEST pinball gangs in P-town! Keepin' it RETRO-it's all we know! We love the Dive! The keep it real! See you at the little red house on MLK!
this my be my favorite bar in town. pretty darned divey, but that's how i like 'em. very friendly bartenders and patronage. most importantly, though, they have the best jukebox in the entire city, and this is something i've researched quite a bit. excellent mix of punk, soul, and rock n roll.
not stiff at all. Brenda, the barkeep is cool. Ya hafta get past the cig smoke though. That's the only bad point.
billy ray's dive - friendly, neighborhoody, 22ozPBR for $2, cozy and relaxed. yes sir. no foolin.
