annoying location, a bit out of the city, but a relatively quick drive. outdoor seating. great service. worth a visit if you have some extra time.

Basically this has the appearance of being a bona fide lodge. We sat at the bar upstairs during lunch time and got great service. The upstairs is very family friendly while downstairs appears to be a bar filled with lottery machines, a commonplace thing in Portland. I liked the beer selection here very much. They had a wide variety of styles including a great sour ale. I didnít find any other sour ales indigenous to the city, so I was excited about that. I had perhaps the best calamari ever. Raccoon Lodge is strongly recommended because they make great beer like so many other places close by, but they make different beer.

I was very excited to come here and for the most part I was quite happy. Big place with a large downstairs that must be more crowded at night (we went during lunch). We sat in the restaurant area with a view of the street and bar. Service was initially slow but the girl turned out to be very nice and even went to change a keg so we could try the Gose and checked with the manager to see if she would let me buy a Styrofoam shipper (the manager would not). My salad was fine but I donít think I ordered well. My friends food looked better. Thee beers they had on tap were good to very good and we all found one or two that we really enjoyed. I purchased one bottle of every sour they had to take back with me (4 styles in all). Iíd go back.

I am very glad I was finally able to make it to this nice little spot. Atmosphere is easy-going and comfortable, looking very much like a simple family restaurant. However, there is a "den" downstairs with stools and tvís if you are in the mood. Service was friendly, patient, and accommodating. Their experimental sours are something to be applauded, and the gose I had was absolutely first rate. Food was good and appropriately priced. Iíd certainly recommend this place to anyone ... beer hunters, families, tasting groups, etc ... it is well worth the stop.

This might be my favorite place in the Portland area which is really saying a lot. Really great sour beers. Atmosphere is a little strange. The family-style lodge upstairs with the t-shirts for sale and coloring contest entries plastered on the wall honestly almost scared me off the first time. The basement is definitely more of an adult scene though.. I had a really great (and big!) seafood jambalaya dish that I have been getting cravings for ever since. I donít know how they keep their prices so low on barrel-aged beers. Service is the best Iíve gotten anywhere... I bought some bottles and the bartender offered me a generous sample of the Nightfall Blackberry. Yummm.

Raccoon lodge is a pace for beer geeks and non beer geeks (they have a full Liqueur license). This place is known for their sours which is why I frequent but their regular line is great as well. the happy hour food is a great value. I wish they still allowed growler fills of their sours. I look forward to the new barrel house on the east side.

A huge place with a modern, airy restaurant upstairs and a weird, rather dark, modest pub downstairs. If it were limited to that, I must say I would not have liked the place at all. Itís not pretty nor loaded with character and there was not much of an atmosphere though we were there in late afternoon. Fortunately, it does not stop here. First, they had 6 of these Cascade experimental brews available to go at better prices than stores (15 a pop). Then, the staff was friendly and displaying palpable beer-enthusiasm. Furthermore, we asked for a little chat with the brewer and it turned out into one of these extravaganza that are so proper to encounters between passionate people. We ended up visiting the brewery and navigating between its 130 wooden barrels to catch a few select samples. Ron used to be a winemaker and it is obvious in his method: controled experiments. Owner Art Larrance eventually joined us up and this entertaining, almost legendary Portland figure kept the samples flowing. Samples became full glasses and laughter joined the party. We ended up staying over 2 hours and left with broad smiles. Besides, the draught selection included a remarkable oud bruin and tasty IPAs. They have ambitious expansion projects and with the quality of their products and attitude, I bet they donít even need my good wishes to succeed. My score has to reflect the experience I had, but this may not be what you live on a sunday night if you come for dinner.

I stopped in here for a lazy Sunday morning. I was the only one in the basement with one of the bartenders opening. He was very friendly, served some great beer and helped me arrange some beer purchases. The ambiance was absolute cheese, but the beers are worth the trip!

This place is boring on the inside, their beer is barely drinkable, though they had all of the important types. Who cares though as you canít stomach it. The food was below average room temperature and just not great. The service was rude and slow. I donít get why people love this place, all I hear is raves but Iíve never enjoyed it, especially the beer.
