The Best Restaurant near Portland International Airport
“The Hidden Gem of PDX”
This is such a beautiful and peaceful place! A sheer peace of mind and relaxation. Those who want to unite with the nature, this is the best spot to come. Totally loved it!!

Located inside the Radisson, Portland Airport, the food was excellent. The happy hour menu offered a good variety. The calamari was tender, the fish tacos flavorful, the quesadilla was delicious, and the steak tips were particularly good - perfectly cooked with outstanding flavor.
We ordered bacon cheeseburgers for one of our dinners. Again, burgers were perfectly medium rare as requested, and juicy - not greasy. The tots were crispy and light as well.
Buffet breakfast was a winner. REAL eggs (nine of that powdered nonsense!)
Some of the best hotel food ever!

Great food, their hamburger is one of the best, they cook your patty the way you ask for it. Breakfast is also good with lots of choices.

After arriving in Portland following a fairly long day of travel, we were looking for a place to grab a bite and avoid the PDX rush hour traffic. We were looking for something close to the airport, and found Lakeside on Yelp. Boy are grateful we did.
The restaurant itself is in the Radisson hotel - a little off the beaten path, but totally worth it. You can see the age of the property, but you can also tell it has been well maintained and updated within the past several years. There was a charm to it - kind of a diner +. There is a line of booths along a bank of windows that look out to the small lake (hence the name). Of course it was a beautiful sunny fall evening, gorgeous trees with turning leaves and ducks on the water completed the view. There is a covered patio as well, for dining al fresco.
Our server (Bianca) was fantastic. It was just the tail-end of happy hour, on a Friday no less, and the bar/restaurant was 3/4 full. It appeared she was the only server at the beginning of our visit, but she was a pro. We felt well taken care of, and it was obvious she was giving the same care and attention to the other patrons. She deserves five stars on her own.
My husband ordered the meat lovers pizza and I got the soup/salad combo (Boston clam chowder and the Lakeside salad). We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal - and not just because we were tired from flying all day. My soup was creamy and clammy (just what you want in a clam chowder). The salad had me at pears and blue cheese. My husband loved his pizza - thin crust - baked all the way through - not soggy in the center. He had to take half of it home - two people could easily split a pizza.
The five year old in me really wanted the cheesecake, which we easily inhaled - topped with blueberries and strawberries it took me back to my childhood. It was so light - not dense, or gummy, or any other negative adjective you can apply to cheesecake. Please save room for dessert. They have a great list of options and I suspect I would have enjoyed all of them.
So happy we found this little oasis - much better than sitting in rush hour traffic.

With a glass of Patron Silver and the calamari plate with onions, I was well-fed and a happy camper.

The buffet was reasonably priced for hotel fare. $12 for breakfast . Treat yourself for a quick breakfast of scrambled eggs and other fare. Coffee was also good.

Fantastic spot if you're looking for a delicious lunch or dinner and a beautiful view. Lakeside is appropriately named because you can eat lunch every day there with a stunning view of a calm lake, in the summer it's so nice I love sitting outside and I never want to leave.
I work nearby and don't have many lunch options if I don't bring my own so I've been here 4 or 5 times and the customer service has always been impeccable. All the servers are really sweet and happy to fulfill whatever weird request I make mid-meal.
My favorite thing here is the Cobb salad with chicken because I love Cobb salad and there's is AMAZING! It's super filling too. I really enjoyed the fish and chips and burger I had before too. If this was a standalone restaurant I may give it a 4/5 because they don't have a very large menu to choose from, but for a hotel restaurant, I don't think you'll find any better in the area! Great lunch spot I'll be coming back to

I am writing this review regarding our server, Anthony. This young man was the best server we've had in a long time and his attitude toward his job is outstanding. He was so friendly, explained everything, was prompt, and just a happy guy! We loved him and he said he has only been a waiter for 3 weeks as he was the busser before. Keep him on the wait staff, he is great!!!!

Wonderful food especially the chicken parmesan! So good! Love the atmosphere overlooking the pond filled with waterfowl. Great food in a great airport hotel away from the noise of the airfield.

Loved the burger. The waiter was very attentive. We asked for a recommendation for dessert. He suggested the apple tart. Amazing! Have the tart even if you are full from dinner. So glad we didn't leave the Radisson to go somewhere else to eat.
