Screen Porch

Screen Porch is a MUST on any Portland trip.  The restaurant doesn't take reservations and the wait can easily be 1 1/2 to 2 hours, but no matter...GO anyway!  

After having the fried oyster appetizer, I knew the fried chicken would be great.  I think the secret is in the batter.  The crust was perfectly crispy and didn't taste greasy at all.

The Fried Chicken might just be the best fried chicken that I have ever had!  The photo really doesn't do it justice. It would have loved to go back for brunch, just so I can order the chicken 'n waffle.
