Great happy hour – I love their happy hour! It's til 7pm every night which is awesome (and rare), and their prices are great. The hummus is delicious. I don't love their drink menu though, personally. I'd love if they updated it.
Great Food/Great Service – The food here is amazing! You can't find food like this at any other bar in Portland. Get the blackened Salmon with coconut rice!
The staff has always been fun and sincere. I love this bar! Plus - it's right next to the Goodfoot so you can hop over for great food in between dancing like a crazy person.
best bar food in town – I don't really come here to hang out, I come here for the food. I believe they serve it up until closing, or close to it. I would die for their po' boys. Seriously delicious. Actually, everything I've eaten here is delicious. The service is good, and I like the atmosphere, it's dark and cozy with a little bit of trashy drunk thrown in.
Favorite neighborhood bar – One of the best food quality late night bars. A bit to frenetic for my taste on the Friday and Saturday, but if you are looking for some hipster 20-somethings out-on-the-town they might be there dressed up and all. No meat market by any means (besides a few pathetic hopefuls). Service is basic, variable, and generally friendly. I had some vegetarian Seattlites in town and brought them there for late night eats and they were extremely happy. I enjoy the Philly Steak sandwich when done right (cheese melted whithin). Really my favorite place despite some long-time-customer gripes.
i guess see for yourself. – The bonfire is your typical southeast bar... atmosphere is fine yet sometimes crowded. pool=fun. pinball=fun. food= tasty. the one and most obvious drawback i have heard numerous people comment on is the utter pretentiousness of the bartenders. all it takes for a great little spot like the bonfire is friendly or nonfriendly employees to make or break the place.
Settle in with the neighborhood crowd for cocktails and simple food at this cozy dive-bar-in-training. – In Short
A neighborhood crowd gathers in the red-walled room hung with surrealistic prints. Good music is in the background--not so loud that people can't hear their friends. The bar turns out solid grub to keep your drink company. The burger is simple but yummy, Greek salad is surprisingly fresh. Gyros, both beef and chicken, come with a super garlicky tzatziki sauce that should be avoided on dates but otherwise rocks.
Bonfire: A Poem About French Fries – The drinks are outstanding, the crowd is hip, the bathrooms are amusing, the artwork is a trip...but the french fries, oh the french fries, are the best in P-town. Pepper and salt, crispy and brown...go for a pint, and a shot of booze...order some french fries---you can not lose!
Best Fries EVER!!! – If you get the right chef, these fries are juuuuust right...perfect seasoning, not too greasy, just the right amount of crunch to them...YUMMERS.
All roads lead to the Bonfire... – Get Kassapakalypsed! If your night in SE PDX doesn't start here, it will probably end here. Let the Bros. Kassapakis and their cohort tend to your every need. Open 'til 2:30, and the food is delish, so leave those drunken Taco Bell runs behind and upgrade to the Bonfire's delicious gyros, which are kind of like upscale gorditas.
Missylou123 – I have been to the Bonfire a few times now and the best part is the wonderfull servers. Not only are they fast and polite but one so handsome as well.
