BarFly's Review of Broadway Grill
Broadway Grill is that rare thing: precisely the bar that its neighborhood deserves. In this case, the neighborhood consists of the oddly time-bubbled urban suburbanites of Irvington and Sullivan’s Gulch, who seem to be living in a bizarro world trapped 20 years back amid squared-off polyester blazers and double-breasted blouses.
The Grill’s food is bland, overpriced comfort fare that offers little comfort, with dry burgers, salty reubens, and wilty salads; the brewery itself issues a wash of tepid, overgreen beers, pushed nervously by a service staff who must know better but can’t help it.
While you’re there you feel yourself, even, sinking into the beige of the air, and after you leave it is physically impossible to remember what the place looked like, as if you’ve been in a David Cronenberg dreamspace.
And it’s a crying, crying shame, because with its free pool and shuffleboard it’s still one of the more welcoming bars in this brutally underserved restaurant district. Oh, Irvington! Oh, humanity!

Great food! Surprised to find good vegetarian options and a great place to watch a Blazer Game. I think I have a crush on one of the waitresses?
It's okay, the food is over priced and not my style but the staff is friendly and for Portland better than most. I would order from the bar as there isn't any service in the back poolroom.
