BarFly's Review of Jody's Bar and Grill

Half sports bar, half strip bar, it's easy enough to catch the game and miss the dancers, and vice versa. Plenty of video games, pool x4, darts, etc. Home of the ever-prestigious Portland and World's Greatest Exotic Dancer contests. Service...often leaves something to be desired.

Jody's Bar and Grill Review

My friend and I went to chill out and have a couple beers at Jody's after a day of golfing. We even went there friday night thinkig it would be busy which it was not. We went in and ordered a couple of beers from the slow rude bartender. Found a table and sat down. The table was sticky and dirty and even had a large piece of lettuce sitting on it.(Which still sat there the entire visit). We ordered food and instally from the look of it you could tell the food was over cook. My deepfried shrimp was dark brown but I gave it a try anyways because I was hungry. After eating a few of them I gave up. The frys were even dry and horrible as well. My friend orders spicy hot wings which were over cook too. When you touched the hot wings it felt like you were testing the air preesure on your car tire. I have never complain about food before but I cound't help it this time. We told the waitress and the bar tender then came stomping over to us. We weren't looking for money back we just wanted to let her know what was being served. She argued with us and said that was there best cook. We just left in disgust and will never be back there again. The girls were also as gross as the food.

There is one bartender at jody's that should not be there..or anywhere for that matter. I waited at the bar for ten minutes while she stood behind the bar and texted on her phone. This woman was horribly rude to other customers too. Ive never seen anything like it. When I asked her for some service after standing there for 8 minutes (i was watching the clock) she looked up from her phone and and told me to chill out cause she was busy. The dancers and waitress apologized for her behavior and said that's how she always is. Not a good idea to have such a nasty person working in customer service. will never go back in while shes working. I'm disgusted!!! I believe her name is out for that one

Worst service ever

The worst service I've ever had in my life. It took for ever, we got the wrong food, the food was cold and we never got our drinks. And they tried charging us for stuff we never ordered. I will never go back.

Jody's is by far the best place in Portland for a guy to go and relax after a long day at work.

Had a Blast

Went there for my bachelor party. It was the 3rd and final stop. I could've spent all night there with the fellas. Great service. Strippers were pretty. Pumpkin was my fave! She can actually hold your attention with conversation when her clothes are on or off... Check out the place... My wife and I will probably go back with some other friends...

nice place

My wife and I went there this last Saturday night, had a couple of burgers and watched the dancers. I just don't like that the dancers don't take anything off if there is not at least one guy at the rack,

In town from Seattle and went to Jody's Bar and Grill for the first time. There was an AMAZING dancer there named Corina. She was beautiful, and VERY nice! If every dancer was more like her, I would be broke!!!

service sucks

I used to be a regular in this place for breakfast 2-3 times a week. The morning bartender is to slow, lazy and rude to put up with now. Just this afternoon I waited 35 minutes for a beer at Jody's, there where only 6 people in the place! It's just sad when the dancer has to stop dancing to ask the waitress to bring the guys at the rack the drinks they ordered twenty minutes ago. I used to love Jody's. =(

Good club

In a town known for a high population of strip clubs-- Jody's is undeniably one of Portland's best. The food is good, barstaff attentive-- and the dancers are (for the most part) VERY pretty. Even the bouncers are respectful- provided you play nice and make their job easy (highly recommended anywhere).

Out of town visitors looking to "map" Portland as far as "best strip clubs"-- should include Jody's as a "must visit". Other clubs with consistently beautiful dancers would be the Dolphin,Exotica and Club 205

Went during the day. Very laid back and not one boob job out of six girls. How refreshing! Not much dancing, but a lot of up close in your face pink. I'll definitely go back.

Jody's continues to be one of the most laid back places to drop in on and watch some girls that I think you'll find on the eastside. No high pressure, no buttonholing, good conversation with the girls, if you want it. Very good lap dances. Plenty of seating. The girls are always friendly. I think overall there's a little less dancing talent at work here than some other places but it's certainly competitive. I've eaten my share of dinners at Jody's, food quality well above average, menu a bit limited. Video, pool tables, TV give you something to do if you wanna break up the evening a bit. Recommended.

great any time of day

I stop in at Jody's everytime I am in Portland. Always at least a couple great girls working no matter what time of day or day of the week. Decent place to start the day with breakfast.

what happened?

this was the worst strip club experience i have ever had, i walked in and immediately was goosed by the bouncer, then got eye fucked by the oldest saggy stripper in town begging me to buy her a drink, i made a b line to the bathroom and almost vomited, i managed to keep my composure and made it out to the bar to try to order a drink, no dice chino, she ignored me i waited about 10 minutes and that was it i couldnt take it, the most annoying ear piercing high pitched gay dj voice yelling i had to get the f__ck out of there.

re: Retired fireman

Pay attention now. Two plus two is four. Dog is spelled d-o-g, cat is spelled c-a-t. Strippers like your money. There is a place called grammar school. Ever been there? Sheesh! You were a career fireman? If you've had a stroke or something, I apologize, but how did you ever hold a job with such dismal language skills? I hope for your sake that you're not as dumb as you sound.
