Saint John's BEST VALUE for $$$$$$, whether it's the mouth watering porterhouse & striploin steaks, the BBQ chicken and rib specials, maybe a burger, or perhaps a seafood special... Over the last 25 years the Portland Pub has tuned into exactly what Saint John needs when it comes to pub grub. Affordable, Dependable, and Delicious (and not necessarily in that order!!!!)... Daily specials, best... more

Portland Pub is your kitchen away from home.

I am a Realtor and I just adore going to Portland Pub after a long day of house tours. It feels so homey. Yes at times the special events that go on are not announced that often but in the big scheme of things it is still a good food, good people place.

Good for Lunch or After Work

Never had a bad experience at the Portland Pub, not sure what the others are talking about. Food is fine and the staff are good.

Extremely Poor & Rude Service

We booked our annual get-together for a large group. It was my suggestion to use the Portland Pub, which turned out to be a huge mistake. We were not told of any events going on there that night when we booked for about 15-20 individuals. When you go to a pub, you do expect some music/noise, but nothing prepared us for what we would endure. There was a charity auction going on right behind us on the 'other side' of the pub. The auctioneer was using a microphone turned up full blast and yelling into it simultaneously. We were right near speakers and could not even hear the person next to us. We get together and meet once a year so this was extremely disappointing. When we asked the waitress if he could maybe 'not' use the microphone as it was extremely abrasive and we couldn't even catch up on what we'd all been up to at all - it was even hurting our ears, it was THAT loud - her snottily-delivered response was, "Well they're here every week and I'm not doing anything. They can do what they want." I wasn't saying don't have the auction, just not yell AND use a microphone - pick one or the other.

No offer of anything other than that. There were even some sort of barriers there they could've closed to block off some of the noise between the two sections of the pub and she refused to do that as well. Nice.

The kindness continued after our visit - we all left much earlier than we had planned and the night was pretty much a wash. I felt badly because I had mentioned the pub as a good central location for us, etc and the food was usually decent, etc., so I wrote a letter to the manager to let him/her know about our experience. To this day (almost a year later), I have not received a response from this place of business.

So the message we got was: you group of teachers and your business mean nothing to us. I refuse to go back to the pub ever - this is not how you conduct business.

Won't be back
September 16, 2013

Went there today (Sept 17, 2013) for supper as it was in walking distance of my hotel. Got a quick beer but the food waitress was more concerned with taking money from the regulars it seemed than in taking my food order. 15 minute wait to order food is not acceptable in my mind. Food was just Ok. There are... more

Excellent Experience
September 11, 2013

We arrived in St. John, NB a little late after a half-day on the road, and this establishment was recommended to us by our hotel personnel. It was clean, service was good, and the steak that my wife ordered was both excellent and priced right. I had the Greek salad and baked potato, and both were done well and very... more
