Top 10 Portland Bloody Marys
The Bloody Mary at Podnah’s was so fantastic it inspired this entire post. Okay, I’ll admit it, I am biased because it’s a very Texas type restaurant with BBQ and Mexican food options for brunch. But regardless, their Bloody Mary just about knocked my socks off. It was so spicy I wasn’t able to finish it. I don’t mind having heartburn for days as long as it’s worth it and this one is totally worth it.
Located in the Alberta district at 1625 NE Killingsworth Portland Oregon 97211.
I stumbled upon Q Restaurant on a cold day and warming up with a Bloody Mary, grilled cheese, and a bowl of tomato soup was pretty much perfect. Their “OLD SCHOOL” MARY is a made with Beet Infused Rose City Vodka or Portland Hot Potato Habanero vodka, house-made Bloody Mary Mix, and pickled veggies.
Located at 828 SW Second Ave. Portland, OR 97204.
La Petite Provence
La Petite Provence has special vodka in case you want your Bloody Mary super spicy. Their spicy Mary pairs perfectly with the Risotto cakes. They also offer Bloody Mary flights. I haven’t tried one yet, so I can’t speak to how good it may or may not be. They’ve got locations all over the Portland area including on Alberta Street, Burnside and on Division near 50th.
Pine State Biscuits
Pine State Biscuits has an awesome Bloody Mary topped with a delicious little corn dog. It’s got a bit of kick, but next time I would order it with even more spice. This Bloody Mary won the people’s choice award at Portland’s Bloody Mary Festival. Sadly, I didn’t attend this festival because I didn’t know about it.
Slappy Cakes is certainly not known for their cocktails, but the last time we dined here I discovered that they’ve got a delicious Bloody Mary. It certainly helped me choke down my kid’s pancake creations! Located at 4246 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97215
Depending on which McMenamins you visit there may be a slight variation. But for the most part, I’ve found them to be similar at most locations. They are spicy, but not too spicy. If you like yours with a lot of kick be sure to let them know. The one pictured here is from the Loading Dock, part of the Edgefield. Remember to get your McMenamins passport stamped while you are there!
Harlow is another place that is definitely not known for the cocktails, but their Bloody Mary is excellent. It goes perfectly alongside their vegan/vegetarian food options like the jackfruit rancheros. Located at 3632 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214.
Tasty n Daughters
Tasty n Daughters has three Bloody Mary’s to go along with your brunch. They are all good, although none of them are spicy. Located at 4537 SE Division St, Portland, OR 97206.
EastBurn Public House
It’s no secret that I like Eastburn Public House. I typically head there for a prickly pear margarita, but recently a friend talked me into a Bloody Mary and holy moly, how have I got this long without this! They have three different types of Bloody Marys to choose from including one with fried chicken and a biscuit.
Located at 1800 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214.
They’ve got a good looking one, The Mary Nell, their house bloody mary with skewers of shrimp, chorizo, cheese & pickled vegetables.
Located in NW Portland at 1987 NW Kearney Street Portland, Or 97209.
If I’m honest Canard didn’t make the top ten because it wasn’t spicy at all. However, if you can’t handle spice this one is for you. If you want a Bloody Mary that most definitely won’t give you heartburn this is it. Located at 734 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214.
