I found myself at the Leaky Roof because I had a Groupon coupon for a gastro-pub meal there. It’s not much to look at from the outside, I have to admit. However, within its low-lit walls customers will find a cozy bar and eatery with a fabulous menu, extensive wine list and weekly happy hour.
There are a lot of pubs in Portland serving frothy craft beers and pub grub. While a slice of pizza or a burger goes well with pints of Oregon brews, not too many pubs have food that impresses (Deschutes in NW is an exception). That’s what I like about the Leaky Roof, it does mixed drinks, beer and dinner well.
Head to the Leaky Roof Mon-Fri for their happy hour from 3:30 to 6pm, or stop in any time for a glass of Oregon pinot at their small bar. The Leaky Roof is a Portland landmark, and has been around since the 1940s! Hungry pub goers should try the salmon and strawberry salad with Oregon hazelnuts or the fried brie with berry compote. The fried mozzarella balls are also pretty tasty. The Leaky Roof’s menu is very reasonable, and a dinner starts at about $20 and up, depending on how many pints you indulge in. Located in the Goose Hallow area, there’s plenty of parking near the Leaky Roof and a Max stop is nearby.
