Foursquare Tips

  • Chat up the head bartender to discover whiskey's not on the menu.
  • Have Andrew make you an old fashioned.
  • Super nice bartender who looks like Timothy Olyphant circa 'Go' just made me a hot water with lemon on the house when I said I couldn't order a cocktail due to my pesky cold
  • Best macaroni and cheese I've ever had.
  • Steak with blue cheese fries, holy crap it's good. And their green salad, simple but the dressing is sooo good
  • Blue cheese tossed fries are a must.
  • All signs point to Branch, where the denlike, European-style whiskey bars warmth extends a powerful invitation to indulge our seasonal urge to nest.
  • A great date night place and really great food. Loved the Duck Fries!!
  • The menu changes every few weeks but they've got one of the consistently best burgers in Portland. Really great on its own, but the bacon you can add is super thick and deliciously smoky.
  • They close an hour before posted. There was a bar full of people an hour before their posted closing time but they had "called last call an hour ago".
  • They do last call at 11:45pm on Saturday. Soooooooo, yeah.
  • Whiskey beer pairings
  • Brown Derby = bourbon + magic
  • Selection of whiskey is good, but I was expecting some more. The duck fat fries are like heaven in my mouth.
  • If you don't get the fried egg sandwich, you're NUTS!! If the universe would allow me to marry a food, I'd marry it. Best. Sandwich. Ever!!!!
  • Kitchen that closes before 11 on week nights? Weak sauce.
  • Phenomenal happy hour ($4 craft cocktails from 4-8), which we missed, but still. Also: free antipasti appetizer (mostly green olives) with your round of drinks.
  • Delicious oysters, amazing duck fat fries, great happy hour selection of cocktails.
  • Have to come back for whiskey Wednesday .. $2 off any whiskey
  • Truffle Mac n cheese!!!!! The steak and frites are also amazing!
