Portland Restaurants and Bars with Fireplaces, Mapped

Find the city's warmest, coziest restaurants

View as Map

December 2015 was the wettest in 75 years. Will this year be the same? In case it is, you have two options this winter: 1) Stay inside for months contemplating whether or not to purchase an umbrella, or 2) Brave the elements in search of great dining, beside a warm fireplace, of course. Portland actually has a ton of restaurants with fireplaces, so it's time to update our list so you can cozy up with food and drinks by a flickering flame.

Know of a great bar or restaurant with a fireplace that's not on the list? Hit the comments to let everyone know (it may appear with the next list update, too).
