BarFly's Review of 39th St Sports Pub (Tom's)

Spacious, semi-grungy Southeast sports bar that caters to neighborhood folk and hip kids looking for a quick drink nearby. Sometimes during games they serve complimentary chicken wings, but beware, they're hot as hell. Also, we have a minor fetish for diamond tuck upholestory, but that's basically Jed's bone.

Pool x3, foosball x1, TV x9, Golden Tee x1, Megatouch x2, shuffleboard x1, jukebox. Always $2 PBR. Free pool Sun-Weds, Karaoke Sat.

im not pretty enough

I just was in there and the male bartender ignored ne only helping female patrons. I use to stop in for a beer after work and always tip a dollar. I will never go in there again. plus I will never recommend to bar hopping friends. that's straight rude

Tom is great!

Daytime service in the bar is unsurpassed. Becky's bloody Mary's will set you straight as well as a variety of other muddled, gourmet drinks. The best SE PDX has to offer without overwhelming hipster douchiness.

Well, at least there's free pool.

There's free pool, and some fun games, and that's about all I can say about the place. Staff is very slow, rude, and can be known for throwing tantrums. I'd highly suggest going somewhere with a more professional staff.

Good for Pool/Cheap Eats/Blazer Game

Going to Tom's seems like you're walking into a fishbowl from 39th. But once inside, it's alot of regulars, nice booths, lots of seating, parking too. Eaten there several times with hubby and friends for happy hour and always happy with both the food and service. If by yourself, go to the bar; these bartenders are kept busy, but are very nice if you treat them right. Not a young pick-em-up joint early evening; it's a more of a neighborhood hangout. Love watching Blazer games there and meeting friends to play pool. Pool is free or reasonable and never waited for a table. Clean restrooms too - bonus!

Just Awful

The service is terrible, slow would be an understatement. What arrived at the end of the exhausting wait was easily the worst bloody Mary I've ever had coupled with chicken fried cardboard covered in what I'm assuming was supposed to be gravy and some kind of squishy potato mash subtly resembling hash browns.

Can be pretty fun

This can be a fun place to hang out despite it's general lack of pleasing decor. A glorified basement rec-room, sort of, but often an interesting mix of people and sometimes the service is outstanding. At night the servers are often lackadaisical. And once again, another bar beset by Portland's lack of ambition, ie. Closing Early Because the Bartender Feels Like It. It really damages customer loyalty. Believe it!

Damn good sports bar

Wow: I had a GREAT time at this place. The drinks were super cheap. The bar staff was very friendly. And, everyone seemed to have a good time. Unlike other bars in SE, Tom's has lots of parking. I haven't tried the food yet, but who cares... the booze is damn cheap.

Dropped in to watch some football wearing t-shirt and jeans. Nothing but a few old dudes and the stale smell of cigarettes. I sat down and waited about three minutes for service to order a drink: nothing. Server came from behind the bar to serve one guy at a table and didnt even acknowledge me. Got up to walk out and heard the bartender chide something about "yeah, this aint your kind of place go..." Didnt hear the rest, and didn't have to. I'm not a local to that neighborhood, and I believe the locals can keep it. Don't waste your time. There are plenty of other better bars nearby.

39th st. pub

Went in with a some friends last week, it was pretty slow but who isn't on a monday night. Didn't look like much from the outside but was surprised at how clean and nice it was on the inside. Lots of stuff to do too (games). I'm usually a little on the defense with the bartender going into little bars like this but this girl was polite and nice. Drinks were fairly cheap too, one of my new fav bars.

Get yout tight black pants on

Suprisingly overrun with hipsters at night, how come? Not a hipster type bar at all. Did Aalto close down? Brings down the comfy neighborhood bar vibe a lot. I'll just stick to watching games here because Mulligan's is lame.

Talk about good service

The owner of Tom's has his head on right when it comes to teaching his staff what's important.

The staff here is professional, fun, friendly, efficient, and HELPFUL and they will always get good tips and politeness from me, from now into infirmity.

You know what's the coolest? If you happen to be playing the viddy pokey there, the staff will COME ASK YOU IF YOU WANT ANYTHING! It is so incredible. If they have time, they will even cash your winning tickets for you (and bring you the dough).

Do you know that most vid poker addicts are ignored by most staff? Do you know who cashes a winning ticket if I win 600 bucks at your bar? The bartender! Do you know who gets a big fat chunk of that (40 bucks is not unheard of, more for really really special people) if they've been even a little bit decent to me? The bartender!

This place has my heart forever, even on Karaoke nights.

Experience Sara and Sumer.

Hotties. HOT JESUS, these chicks are hot. Get in good with them and you will be set to get hammered all night. Get in bad with them and Sara will physically throw you out. Serious. I've seen this shit.

Cheap drinks, lots of regulars, never too packed to find a table. This is a better place to drink than to watch sports, per se. So if you're a meathead twunt, try Scoreboard up the road.

Best meat on a stick

I live about 4 blocks from Tom's and it is my favorite bar in the area. My neighbors and I go there all the time, and "great Greek bartender" is Taki, the owner, who also cooks and will become a great friend if you chat with him. The best night was when he brought out pounds and pounds of wonderfully seasoned and broiled pork on a stick out to us drunkards and fed us until he couldn't take anymore. Yay Tom's!

Makers Mark CHEEEP!

I went into this bar once. Maker's Mark was 3.50 a shot and there was this great Greek bartender who played video poker all night. Definitly try it once.
