Long Description:



Huber's is located at 411 SW Third Avenue in the Oregon Pioneer Building. It is Portland's OLDEST restaurant (since 1879). Huber's is designated a historic landmark on the local level as well as on the national level with the National Registry of Historic Places.

The arched stained-glass skylight, the solid Philippine mahogany paneling, and the terrazzo floor are original fixtures from 1911. So are the brass cash register behind the bar and the brass ship's clock above the door. Turkey is their specialty. The turkey pot pie with the cornbread topping is absolutely delicious! Check out their website at: www.hubers.com.
