Miles from Executive Inn


“Life itself is the proper binge.”

― Julia Child

You only get one start to every day, so you better do it right. At Portal, our chefs are serving up a hearty and creative menu from brunch till dinner -- and even the NY Post is raving about us! From Burgers to Brussels Sprouts, there’s something for every taste. But the good times don’t stop in the kitchen -- behind our bar, you’ll find one of Oakland’s best selections of beer on tap. So come on down to the patio, bring your family and friends, (or bring a perfect stranger, we won't mind) and enjoy our view of Lake Merritt. Your taste buds will be glad you did.
