Seventy-five consecutive years in business is quite the success story. This fall, one of Portland’s most recognized classic restaurants, RingSide Steakhouse, is celebrating its 75th year in business. To commemorate this milestone, RingSide Steakhouse will host its 75th Anniversary Celebration Dinner Series that will take place on October 30th, November 6th, and November 20h.
Since 1944, RingSide Steakhouse has been one of the city’s most recognizable restaurants. During its 75 years, its ownership has been under the same family for three generations.

RingSide is the go-to restaurant in town for visiting celebrities to dine, the walls are adorned with signatures of musical artists, actors, and athletes proud to sign a RingSide menu with a note of thanks for an exceptional experience.
Here’s a breakdown on each of the three dinners…

For the first of RingSide’s dinner series, they will be partnering with Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, two brands that have been celebrated globally for decades. They will welcome Brand Ambassador Travis Tidwell, who will walk guests through the spirits journey to maturity and what sets these two distilleries apart from the rest.
Withstanding the Taste of Time – Wednesday, November 6th – $175
The second dinner will pay homage to classic RingSide Steakhouse dishes that have been coveted by guests for decades; think Chicken Liver! As an added bonus, RingSide will calculate the difference in today’s price of the Throwback Menu to what it was way back when.
