The Great Lost Bear: "Fabulous Beer Joint" Portland Restaurant Tip by wondertrev

Portland Restaurants: 79 reviews and 65 photos

Gourmet Magazine recently stated that TGLB was one of the country's best bars. After visiting, I miust agree. This place combines over 50 New England brews on tap with above-avg. bar food (wings, bugers, etc...). don't skip the Irish nachos (fried potato slices with cheese and other toppings). The chili-cheese nachos had the best chili I've had since I left Texas. The waitress did a fantastic job of keeping my 4 yr.old happy. Mon nights you get big beers for price of a pint.

Favorite Dish: The Irish Nachos with cheese and chili, and the Mother and Child Reunion sandwich (fried chicken breast, bacon, cheese, and freid egg {sublime!}) Try the Smutty Nose IPA and the Allegash White beers.
