Limelight Restaurant & Lounge

Dive bar by night, brunch by day. Great Bloody Marys (with jalepeno and bacon) and eggs Benedict!

The Lamelight...where unpleasant bartenders go to practice their trade! – Rule Number 1: Hire staff who don't so obviously hate working in a bar! What a miserable group of bartenders and cocktailers. It is as if they feel they are doing you a favor because they popped the top off of your beer. The Lamelight, as it has become known to many in the the area, is in a great location and could be so much more than it is! But the sour faces and terrible attitudes of the staff have made me feel, on all 3 occasions I have been there, like I was interrupting a wake when I asked for a drink. Food is average bar (burgers, sandwiches, fryer fare). Pool tables and jukebox are mild draws.

Good food with inventive, generous cocktails and free pool keep this low-key bar packed. – In Short
Pool tables, jukebox, vintage video games and stiff-pouring bartenders make for a raucous time for the hip 20-somethings who frequent this fun spot. Hit cocktails include the Sweet Tart and the Jolly Rancher, as well as the Long Island Iced Tea served in a carafe. The menu represents the apex of bar food. Carefully assembled salads are fresh and soups are homemade. The hamburger is thick and juicy and fries are lightly battered, thin and crisp.

Great Bar – They may take offense to this statement, but great dive bar. Food is average bar fare in this city, nothing special. Mixed drinks are great, but sometimes they focus so much on their specialties that standard fall flat (ex. poor margarita).

The bar is awesome. Walking distance from my house, smokey, 2 run down pool tables, freindly folks and an ecclectic juke box. We tortured

everone for 3 hours this past Friday with our wierd tatstes...

Great spot to hang out.

My favorite place in Westmoreland – As a veteran of the downtown scene, I realize I don't want to "club" it all that often anymore. Since I live in the neighborhood (Westmoreland, not Sellwood like the other person says) I needed to find the best local spot. The Limelight serves this purpose. The food is not quite as good as the Springwater Grill down the street, but it is cheaper and the attached bar gives it a different dimension. They have all the bar necessities such as a good music system, pool tables, video games, and VP. This is not a destination establishment, so locals only, please...

Sellwood Secret – The atmosphere here is lacking a bit (boring but clean dining room, smoky and dark bar), but the food and drinks are surprisingly good. Very fresh cobb salad with plenty of chicken and bacon; really skinny, crisp, hot and salty fries; good sandwiches and specials. Cocktails are strong and tasty, too. Best-kept secret in Sellwood!
