Portland >Rialto Poolroom Bar & Cafe
Host to a fantastic Kentucky Derby celebration. Place a bet next door at the off-track betting and watch the races on large projection screens and T.V's. Friendly staff.
A downtown spot to shoot free pool (Mon.), partake in happy hour imbibing, or catch a game on one of the many projection screens and TVs.
Upscale pool hall. Tends to be a professional crowd. Their happy hour is great, might I recommend the pulled pork sliders for $4. Regulation size pool tables and good music. Non-invasive but attentive staff.
LOST THEIR CHEF. Use to go there for their lunch specials, but now just ho-hum. It seems like the food is just secondary to the drinking and gambling. I found out the drop is due to the loss of their long time chef. maybe they can spring back
Best drinks downtown. Way better staff than the last time I was there about a year ago. I actually had a really good waitress and great drink. Hint: ask for a 'tall ' drink. Glad I gave it another shot.
great food, but I miss the old rialto. The food here is actually really good. Nice job chef! I have eaten here a couple of times since the remodel and it is good. No question. Bartender was good. She poured a mean shot. I still miss the old rialto. Miss the characters, the old bartenders and cocktail waitresses and the old layout. The new layout just doesn't do it for me. It is still a good spot to go and smoke a cigar and watch a game, even if your waitress is barely twenty one and doesn't even begin to have a clue. Oh well, I guess nothing ever stays the same!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Pristine pool tables, upscale bar food and lots of sports TV reign at this renovated bar.
Good place to enjoy pool and drinks. This place is a weekend favorite. The food here is a bit expensive but really good. The drinks are stiff. The pool tables are in really good condition. The bartenders are really cool and keep their calm despite the crowds. The waiters can be a tad bit slow. The crowd is usually a mix of really casual and relaxed types of a variety of ages, but the obnoxious drunks and wanna be thugs sometimes linger in.
Good drinks large selection of pool tables. the drinks are well blended and strong which doesn't usually happen in Portland. A large selection of pool tables available and also a private on the second floor. waitresses constantly serving and friendly. Video poker if you like that and not too roudy of a crowd seems to be around. Good music as well.
User review by mshall. I recently went into the Rialto for the first time since the remodel. WOW! It's gorgeous! They've got two floors of pool tables, the drinks are still stiff and the food has gotten 110% better. We had pizza(yummy and thin crusted) and burgers (which were huge with homecut fries). Only complaint: waitress was kind of slow making her rounds. Otherwise, GReat spot to duck out of the otherwise pretentious downtown scene, shoot some pool, grab a decent drink, watch a game and hang with friends. tip: adorable men abound!
