    Upscale Alpine cuisine that showcases hearty winter fare like spätzles and sausages. Come in at lunch or during happy hour for their life-altering burger.

    The best cheeseburger I've had in my life. You can get it at the bar [and at lunch]. It comes on this crunchy, yeasty potato bread, the kind of thing you wish you could make at home. Read more

    Eater PDX editor Erin DeJesus calls this "the juiciest, best burger" in Portland. The "hambürger" is topped with cheese, bread-and-butter pickles, Nueske's bacon, arugula, and house-made ketchup.

    Anyone in the know will tell you Grüner grills one of Portland's top 5 gourmet burgers. Here's the inside dish: Ask for a 2nd cloth napkin -- you'll need it. This is one juicy sandwich!

    Though the menu takes inspiration from the Black Forest to the Black Sea (complete with bratwurst, ja?), it deserves highest marks for its burger, hands-down one of the city's best. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The Choucroute Garnie Bratwurst platter is to die for. If you call ahead they will sell you their brats in 5 packs and loaves of their pretzel bread to take home on slow nights.

    The Rijeka Sour is fantastic. Plum brandy and citrus and the creaminess from the egg white are just lovely together.

    Gruner offers some of the best Happy Hour snacks in town. We love the Polenta Croquettes & the Chicken Liver Mousse!

    This place is great. If you don't know what to order for a drink just tell the bartender what you like and she will make something for you. She has not steered us wrong.

    Sure, it’s unlikely that you’d hightail it to Portland’s stylized sanctuary of spätzle, goulash, and saucisson for a dose of Italy’s street food staple. But Grüner’s deeply satisfying pizza, in all of Read more

    By far the best burger in Portland. Trust me I love burgers. Also cask next door is great for cocktails.

    Try the pickled deviled eggs. The spatzle reminds me of a rich and hearty mac n' cheese. The burger was delicious too but not something you can't find elsewhere.

    Trendy atmosphere and delicious cuisine. Duck breast in wine reduction is simply divine. The friendly service is a plus!

    Try the Old World and New World Edelzwickers side by side. They also had Tête du Moine, a fave.

    The tart flambee is delicious, but enough for two to split as an appetizer.

    Says it's a German restaurant but over half the menu was French food. Problems with food temperature, over/under seasoning & awkward front of house.

    The hamburger is near perfect. Also try half a Swiss Cuban sandwich with small Gruner salad. Subtle flavors abound.
