An art gallery, event space for weddings and dishes that incorporate its ales are just a few of the details that pull Bridgeport to the front of today’s brewpub pack.

Chef Jun Robles is reinventing pub fare with an eclectic menu of Asian-meets-brew-pub dishes. Try the vegan Japanese pancake & Vietnamese rice bowl with a pint.

Jun is the chef here and he puts his heart and soul into that menu. Very delicious, creative menu options. Recommend the Burnside pizza and really anything else.

Take Out Portions Are A Rip Off – Do not waste your hard earned money here I ordered a take out. Caesar Salad for $8, The take out box contained about $1 of lettuce 3 croutons and dressing. I sent it back thinking it was a mistake and the Manager tolds me it would look like more on a plate and refused to give me my money back. $1,50 salad for $8 and a bad attitude from the manager for dessert.

Great eats, beers – I stopped in for a late lunch last week and had one of the best French Dip sandwiches I have ever had. Medium-rare, tender roast beef with cheese on a delicate but crunchy bread bun. Dee-lish. And I had the pleasure of washing it down with an ice-cold, super clean IPA. I think they must clean their taps often because thier draft beer always tastes so crisp and clean. I haven't tried their dinner yet but will probably head back the next time I'm here during the evening hours. Thumbs up!

Worst Steak in Portland – My wife and I went here last weekend for some comfort food. Remembering the place from a few years ago when the food was actually good. I ordered the steak and what I got was simply laughable. It was too small tips of a steak. No more than 4 bites. I tried to send it back for a decent cut but was told they were weighed and that was the size. It was so dry due to the size. Really I expected a hearty meal. Maybe they are trying to survive the recession by cutting back on their portions. It really was quite a joke.

Above average brewpub – The alehouse salad is great, hazelnuts and bleu cheese, yum. Had the chicken parmesan special and it came out of the wood fire oven a little on the burned side. They took it back and brought us a new one with no attitude and it was pretty good. Lots of good looking stuff on the menu, looking forward to going back. Atmosphere is nice and comfortable. Service was great.

A Hawthorne Institution – It's not like there's a lack of good restaurants or good beer on Hawthorne. It's always fun to try the new places that open too. But I find I keep coming back to the Bridgeport alehouse. I like that it is slightly different than some of the other places around--nothing deep fried (so no fries) but lots of good food. The white bean burger is pretty amazing, and the pumpkin hummus is quite delicious as well. There are options here for both omnivores and vegetarians .

More importantly, the happy hour is amazing. Bridgeport beer is solid, always good. The cask conditioned ales are pretty close to amazing. And at happy hour it's only 2 bucks a pint. The wine selection is decent and for the non-drinkers/ designated drivers they have more options that just diet coke.

There is usually the diverse crowd you would expect at this part of town. I like that the place is classy yet casual. I wish the growlers were a bit cheaper and I'd come here even more often. There are some better restaurants on Hawthorne and maybe some better bars too but there's nothing imo that serves as good a combination. It makes for a good gathering place; I usually go to a movie at Badgad and then skip the watery Mcmenamin's beer and come over here to talk about the flick.

Prententious prices; bland, underwhelming food – The food, unfortunately, was a couple notches below mediocre. The problems:

1) Old olives on the antipasti. I've spent a few years chef-ing, and I can easily spot an olive that's been around too long. We got at least three with the appetizer: soft, with a distinct off-flavor. My partner literally had to eject one into her napkin.

2) Very bland Caesar. The dressing was sort of lemony, but had virtually no trace of garlic or the hallmark of the Caesar: anchovy. We were able to get past that stumble by requesting extra dressing and anchovies, which our server cheerfully provided. 7 anchovy fillets were a bit excessive, but OK, we used 3 and left the rest.

3) The cottage pie was a bit small for the cost and not well-seasoned. Again the adjective bland leaps to mind. How about a bit broader assortment of vegetables, say a parsnip perhaps, or at least a couple peas, rather than simply soggy roast bits and a carrot or two?

4) The burger was the worst. I had to ask that it be removed from the bill. I tried, I really did, but after wrestling half of it down, I had to throw in the towel. The better cuts tend to have less fat, and require careful cooking to avoid drying out. As a precaution, I asked the server to have it prepared to medium. When it arrived, it seemed the cook had been leaning on it with his spatula until every possible gram of moisture had been expelled. It was very well-done, but not overly charred. We might have sent it back for another, but our server never stopped by again to check on the food. Additionally, the lettuce leaf on the setup was very small and wilted, while the obviously hand-sawn tomato slice was a wedge big enough to use for a doorstop. When we discussed the overdone burger, our server remarked that the burgers are so nice and thick, the cooks have a "hard time gauging them." I wonder how so many restaurants manage to cook filet mignon?

Overcooked, under seasoned fare below par for Elmer's, at 4-star prices. Won't return.

Where good but last time I went everything was burned..... – I used to eat here alot during remodeling my kitchen but the last time I went my take out was all burned and when I called to complain I was offered free dinner coupon . It never came. For the price you can do better anywhere else. Staff is rude and caesar sald has no taste.

horrible service & average food – my friend & I have eaten here several times over the past few years as it is convenient for us both and we get more disillusioned each time. Today we called it quits -- never again. The service is pretty much always lousy and attitudinal. Today, the oil used on our sandwiches was clearly ra-- d (bad, but this review won't let me use the appropriate word) (I cook, and I KNOW ra--d oil). I mentioned this to our waitress, very nicely, suggesting she might mention it to the chefs, and she looked at me like I had leprosy, said nothing except "okay" and rudely walked away. We had to wait 10 minutes at the end for her to pick up our check (she never did, so we went and stood by cash register). I feel sorry for the people working there -- so unhappy, and food is very average and uninteresting. Hawthorne has many more places to offer, places that care about their food, their service and about their customers....goodbye bridgeport.
