Get the Best Seats in the House!

On Deck Sports Bar & Grill has definitely come a long way from 5 counter stools and a single TV set to over 30 widescreen full-HDTVs, a full-service dining area and bar, plus a choice seat for every customer on big game nights!

It All Began with a TV Set

On Deck Sports Bar & Grill started way back in 2004 after three college fresh college grads who were ( and still are!) avid sports enthusiasts decided to open a small takeout counter serving burgers, fries, chips and other snacks and beverages. They only had 5 outdoor counter stools where customers could sit and grab a quick bite.

To keep themselves entertained during the lean hours of operation, they decided to mount a 42-inch flat screen LCD TV and subscribed to pay-per-view sporting packages so they wouldn’t miss out on their favorite sporting matches. Pretty soon, customers would come to order and stay on to watch the games with them. During big game events, they even had huge crowds stopping over and causing a bit of a problem with sidewalk traffic (which earned the ire of next-door establishments).

When the opportunity to rent out two other neighboring spaces presented itself after a couple of years, that’s when the 3 buddies decided to plan out a major expansion move to become a full-service sports bar and dining establishment.

Never in their wildest dreams did they ever think that one single TV set would pave the way for this tiny, hole-in-the-wall snack station to become one of downtown Portland’s best destination for enjoying great food and drinks while watching the games!
