What You'll Get


People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with tasty pub eats: for $20, you get $40 worth of savory pub fare and beverages at the EastBurn, located in southeast Portland. This deal is valid during happy hour, not to be confused with 10:10 a.m., which only looks happy because of the orientation of the hands.

Knowledgeable bartenders, a chair-swinged outdoor patio, and a vivacious neighborhood atmosphere all reside at the EastBurn, where organic, fresh, and local ingredients in made-from-scratch dishes make up their creative lunch, dinner, and late-night menus. The hand-cut calamari ($9) is swaddled in rice flour and topped with Peppadews and fresh basil before being placed atop a king-size bed of balsamic reduction and 800-thread-count marinara. Experience unity of the tongue, gullet, and stomach with the trinity fries, their russet and sweet potatoes sidekicked with a holy tomato aioli ($6).

Flavorful entrees are also in abundance, and each pairs well with selections from EastBurn's rotating lineup of fresh-kept wines and 16 draught beers. Neighbor the spice-rubbed, pomegranate-molasses-glazed pork belly ($15) from nearby Carlton Farms with a glass of zinfandel such as the 2006 Ridge "Three Valleys" Sonoma ($7.50), or marry a Voagie sandwich ($9), a sautéed stack of veggies, pesto, and cheeses, with any eligible pilsner or sauvignon blanc.

In keeping with the community-oriented vibe, local artists' works are displayed without commission inside EastBurn's comfy feasting space. The tropical-styled outdoor patio is open year-round, donning individual embedded mosaic fire tables, swinging chairs, and a retractable canvas to shield from unexpected storms and elbow drops from outer space. Knowledgeable, friendly bartenders shepherd the lively basement Taproom, where tippled tandems can square off in pinball, Skee-Ball, or galactic jai-alai, or catch live music Wednesdays through Saturdays at 10 p.m.

Dine-in only.

EastBurn was featured as one of the Oregonian's Best Outdoor Bar Hangouts and named one of Willamette Week's High-Yield Happy Hours. It was also reviewed by BarFly and featured on the Elizabeth Fuss blog. More than 100 Yelpers and three Citysearchers give it a four-star average rating:

  • …best of all, chair swings, it's like some super-cool east sider's version of a back porch. – Shawn Vitt, Oregonian
  • Where else in Portland can you play 25-cent Skee Ball with a cocktail in hand? – BarFly
  • I've been there for lunch a few times, and dinner, and I've ordered things I don't normally order, like pork medallions, and its been amazing enough to go back for it the next week. – jennwarr, Citysearch
