Shooters and Stuff – I ate at Pal's Shanty for the first time last weekend, and they had the best oyster shooters that I have had on the West Coast. I would also highly recommend the seafood and clam chowder, the crab louie's, and the buckets of steamed clams. Prices range from $7-$17 for entrees and fresh fish is based on market price. It is a tavern, so the atmosphere is laid-back and noisy, but not in an overbearing way. Two thumbs up.
The Best C-food – We fly into Portland just for the seafood at Pal's. It's a relaxed tavern atmosphere where you can get the best seafood without a dress code. I can't believe people think Red Lobster with their high priced breaded seafood even competes with fresh seafood like what you get at Pal's or even Saltys. Super clams even in the off season. A bite of crab in every bite of the Crab Louis, big chunks of crab. The Northwest's best kept secret.
confused – Good seafood chowder for $3. I've read some rave reviews regarding portions, but six tiny catfish bites for $6.50 was a ripoff. Can't wait to try other specialties. Service was friendly.
Pal's is the shiznit! – I love this little gem of an establishment! I would dine there daily if I could. Unfortunately, I have to work, so I can't. Food? Fabulous. Sevice? Absolutely impeccable! If you don't go check this place out, you, my friend are a lunatic!!!!
its ALL good – this place has the best steamer clams around..with a side order of the cheese bread nothing could be better..we sat down and we were instanly waited on..real friendly waitstaff..our experience here was alot more that we hoped for..
Honkin' huge pile o' crabmeat – I ordered the Crab Louie salad, which was a fresh, crispy bed of iceberg lettuce topped with beet slices, pickles, hard-cooked egg, tomato, and what seemed like HALF A POUND OF CRAB. At least six whole, peeled crab claws were scattered around in this too. The tomato was perfectly ripe and fruity. Served with a container of 1000-island dressing. This was a classic done to perfection, plus I had what seemed like another entire salad for lunch the next day. (This dish was $17.95 on 7/10/02.) Friends had the calamari steak (breaded/fried) and the dinner salad w/Pacific Bay shrimp (the little kind), which were both also very good.
