Best Family Pub in P-town – The Lucky Lab is a great set of beer-hall style bars with different food at each location.
Best of all is the Tour de Lab 30 mile bike ride which makes stops at each location.
nice pub – go hear for a comfortable setting and good times after work!
Amazing Local Brews, Fantastic Bites to Eat, Dog Friendliness to the Top – What a better place to have a few really amazing beers, freshly brewed, and of alternating flavors to the weather season, and as the "Recession Session" brew came out, economic conditions.
If the beer weren't enough to attract you to this close, easy access bar on Hawthorne, but the food is worth the journey alone. Try the Spicy Curry Chicken Bento, its rumored that one of the owners found the recipe for it in a visit to Thailand years ago.
Beyond that, and the multiple locations, you feel at home and happy at the Lucky Labaradore and can't help but get sucked into the fandom as you see the many shirts and stickers you can get of the faithful labradore, and the many customers whom mailed in "I was there" photos across the world wearing Lucky Lab apparel.
For a visit to Portland or for any Local, the Lucky Labradore is a must try!
Great for groups! – I meet at the Lucky Lab on Quimby every month with a large group of people (average 20.) We are kind of noisy but no one seems to mind. There is a great selection of beer on tap. The food isn't the best in the world, but has always been appropriately cooked. They offer some neat sandwich options. I wasn't impressed with the corn chowder- it wasn't thick at all. The waitstaff are attentive, but not talkative.
Overall- a great place for groups but probably not somewhere you'd want to go for just dinner.
great beer, bring the dog – We have been the a couple of times,enjoyed the beer,nice porch to bring the dog hang out with friends and have a beer!!
A canine inspired list of brews with a dog friendly atmosphere. – The menu is as odd as the cows dispersed throughout the bar. Deli and Thai? Seriously? But to their credit they do both well. Their Italian grinder is delicious. I have yet to find that one beer, although Black Lab and Top Dog or both certainly drinkable. If you enjoy thai try the Bento with Spicy Peanut Curry.
People and pooches mingle over good beer and banter at this friendly indoor/outdoor locale. – In Short
Roomy and inviting, the vast, high-beamed main room and the spacious covered patio attract beer-loving, outdoorsy and business types alike. Folks come here to enjoy a friendly game of darts or just admire the numerous photos of patrons sporting Lucky Lab T-shirts at worldwide destinations. Some customers bring Bowser along for a play date on the dog-friendly patio while sipping on a chilly pint.
Best Beer, Best Friends...We love the Lab! – My husband and I have been going to the Lucky Lab since it first opened. We had our first date there, and have made many important decisions in life over a pint with our pooch out on the back patio. We love you guys..."...drinkin' a beer with my four legged friends and a coupl' a strangers it all depends, it doesn't matter that it's gettin' late, for now it's time to celebrate!" (FLG) Keep on brewin' boys (and ladies) - and welcome home Flem, keep kickin' it over the top!
Mediocre food, unfriendly staff – I occasionally meet friends at the Lab on Miser Mondays for beer and dinner. I'm always dissapointed with the utterly boring menu, that hasn't changed in years. They just don't seem to care whether or not their customers are satisfied, as long as people still come through the door. They often run out of certain foods; for instance, if sandwiches are practically the only thing on your menu, make sure you have enough bread. Beer is good, but not consistant, and dogs are a huge plus. The managers could stand to read some of these comments.
Come for the Beer! – Ah, the lab! The lab consistently has the best beer in town. Dog Day IPA is a classic. And they have a nitro and hand pump tap with rotating varieties. But watch out, their alcohol content is high (higher than they claim?). The indoor area is spacious. The atmosphere is rustic with unfinished vaulted ceilings that look untouched for 80 years. Outdoor seating is spacious, and now they have outdoor heaters for those cold winter nights. There are typically a lot of dogs on the porch and things can get rambunctious. Service is "too cool to be friendly. The food is overpriced and not good, but tolerable in a pinch. BLT is the best meat sandwich and the three cheese meltdown is the best veggie. Bento is decent. Caesar salad is the highlight. The soups are not stellar. Don't come for the food, come for the beer.
