In July, "Holler" restaurant opened, as planned, at 7119 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue in Westmoreland – on the ground floor of the new full-block-sized Meetinghouse Apartments.
The owners, who also operate the well-regarded "Bullard" restaurant downtown, are planning their large indoor space to host a family-oriented restaurant and sports bar – but, since the state coronavirus restrictions preclude that at present, it's takeout-only for now, from a window facing Milwaukie Avenue. They expect to expand service indoors after the pandemic restrictions are lifted. Offered at the street-side window are sandwiches (beef, chicken, veggie, or breakfast sandwiches), salads (ranch, Caesar, and spicy cabbage), meals, and burger packs, a kids' menu with coloring sheet, and add-ons such as sauces and pickles. There are also sides of cornbread, tater tots, mashed potatoes, biscuits, side salads, and crinkle fries, as well as drinks and sweets. They even offer ice cream to go.
The new restaurant has received praise from customers for its "crisp yet juicy" chicken, available either as "regular or spicy". Large picnic tables out in front are cleaned regularly, allowing customers to linger and sit, with social distancing – or you can have your order bagged to take home, or to a picnic.
"Holler" is currently open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., and is closed Sundays and Mondays – and also occasionally for deep cleaning. Currently the business only accepts payment by credit card. You can view their menu online at – www.hollerpdx.com – or phone them at 971/200-1391. The menu states, "We do have gluten-free options: Everything on our menu! Except the cookies, cornbread, and biscuits."
