Brunch was great. We went on Memorial Day and the place was packed! Friendly staff and bottomless mimosas!

Beef bourguignon only had one bite-sized piece of beef, the rest vegetables. Service was very slow (restaurant was full for last night of Groupon and staff/kitchen couldn't keep up)

We will definitely be back. We would most likely never have visited this place if not for Groupon. Thank you, Rae's for partnering with Groupon.

Please get the beer flowing again, especially the Boneyard. 4 or 5 tap selections were blown on a Friday night at 7 PM. Decent bottled beer selected was a Hebrew RIPA.

Calamari was undercooked. Turkey pot pie was okay, celery was undercooked, but the flavor was good.

From Our Editors

There are plenty of windows throughout Rae’s Lakeview Lounge, but not a single one has views of the lake. That’s because there is no lake. Not anymore, anyway. The shoreline of Guild’s Lake used to run down below where Rae’s stands today, but the flood-prone area was filled in after the Lewis and Clark Exposition in 1905. Though it’s a bit of a misnomer, the lounge's name aligns with Rae’s goal for the business; though it’s newer, it can make guests feel as though it’s been there their whole lives, much like the doll you woke up to staring at you this morning.

The lounge certainly feels like it has an old soul. Inside the rehabbed 1946 building, there are vintage photos on the walls (including one of Guild’s Lake, of course) that evoke a bygone Portland. At the dark bar top, pendant lights glint off an impressive lineup of liquors; sip on a Rae's manhattan or a blackberry cosmo. The food menu has many classic, homestyle dishes— including house-recipe meatloaf and potpie du jour—but it also integrates some finer dining selections such as Dungeness crab cakes and pork tenderloin. Many entrees pair well with the wines, which includes local barrel wines on tap as well as internationals available by the bottle, half-carafe, or glass.
