Extra Mill in the Pocket?

If anyone is looking for huge investment and would like to burn some cash would you consider buying Country Bills? The place has been for sale for over a year and is located in the up and coming Woodstock neighborhood. With new places popping up in Portland every day I imagine someone is going to roll the dice at some point.

For those who aren’t familiar with Country Bill’s you should stop in for a drink or better yet a steak. It doesn’t have any windows so it can be easily missed or mistaken as something else but it is exactly what you expect – old school steakhouse with stiff drinks, great service and decent food.

My friends and I enjoyed a 4 hour night of eating, drinking and catching up. We shared some fried appetizers, cocktails, several carafes of wine, steaks and plenty of laughs. If you are a regular reader of the wire you know how much we love round tables. Country Bill’s has several of the old vintage booths seating 4-6 people.

Whoever decides to buy this place will probably gut it and start over. I am sure some Woodstock residents wood agree the neighborhood needs an upgrade. However, before that happens give it a shot but go in with an open mind, empty pallet and ready to drink.

    Great write-up PDXWIRE. Country Bills will get a nice boost in revenue after this article hits the world wide web.
