This quirky place was a nice find on my trip through Portland recently. I stopped in for lunch and had fish and chips which was very good. I was pleasantly surprised at the large portion size that I got for $11-12. Even with a healthy...More

I stumbled on this place through Apple maps. It has a great diverse menu - largely "American" but some creative fusion dishes - wide variety - both healthy and sinful. Good local beers on tap. Small, quirky, cozy in an old house. Nice staff. Good...More

I have been to Silly's a few times over the past several years. I always really enjoy the food. The menu is varied and creative. The portions are large. The only issue this visit was how cramped it was inside. It almost seems like it...More

I went here with a friend to catch up and have a nice meal. She got the politos and fritos (our usual go-to, because the honey mustard sauce at Silly's is drinkable it's so good). I got something new--it was a beet salad with goat...More
