“Good beer selection with big glasses. The pretzel and bratwurst was the right size to leave room for dessert. The seasonal apple strudel was like having a fresh baked pie with ice cream. Very good overall but the parking lot can be to capacity at times.” – Quintein Vazquez

Olympia Provisions Public House

Olympia Provisions Public HouseOlympia Provisions Public House was formed in 2010 with a single goal in mind: to provide the greatest quality product possible using ancient world traditions, recipes, and processes. The Olympia Provisions Public House is Portland’s answer to a neighborhood pub you’d walk to in a mountain village. While staples like bratwurst and frankfurter will remain on the menu, the selection has expanded to include anything from a wonderful hamburger to a classic Wiener Schnitzel wrapped in our delectable Landrauchschinken. Smaller snacks include house-made German pretzels and an Alpine charcuterie board featuring salami, rillettes, pickles, rye bread, and more.

Swiss Hibiscus

Swiss HibiscusSwiss Hibiscus opened its doors in 2010, but Chef Martin Wyss’ legacy began much earlier in Wädenswil, Switzerland, where he was born. He selected cookery as his apprenticeship because he wanted to travel. He traveled the world before settling in Honolulu, Hawai’i, in 1964, after accepting a sous chef post at the Kahala Hilton Hotel. Chef Wyss left his position as Executive Chef at the Kahala Hilton Hotel after 18 years to pursue his dream of opening his own restaurant.

“A wonderful restaurant with excellent service and friendly staff. The menu has a variety of choices but isn’t overwhelming, and the specials each day are well worth considering. Our entrees came with hot bread and house dressings, fresh soup, and house made noodles. I’ll definitely be back again to try the fondue!!” – Jesse Galloway
