Our Happy Hour Menu Has Something for Everyone

It’s no surprise that at the end of a busy day all you can think about is finding a relaxing place to enjoy a bite to eat and a cool beverage. Mock Crest Tavern caters to that hard working crowd with two Happy Hours filled with delicious choices in food and drinks.


The Beer

Take a sip of the golden nectar with 50¢ off domestic drafts and 75¢ off micro drafts. Our rotating taps feature a wide variety of brews that are a favorite of our North Portland crowd.


The Cocktails

Well drinks are also included in our Happy Hour menu. At $4 each, you can treat yourself and your friends! And, for wine drinkers we’ve included a selection of wines for $1 a glass. It’s such a good offer you might as well try a few vintages.


The Food

Our menu includes several dishes at different prices to satisfy those after work hunger pains. For only $4 you get a basket of freshly fried tater tots, French fries, or a cup o’ soup. Every day our chefs whip up a hearty soup that’s especially good to eat on cold, rainy February days. Look for clam chowder, vegetable beef, chicken noodles, and many more varieties. Each day it’s something different.


Are you ready for a meal? Fill up on fresh greens with one of Mock’s packed garden salads. How about a sandwich? We’ll serve you a BLT ½ sandwich on toasted bread. Or maybe it’s an appetizer you’re craving? Go for our hummus and pita plate. All these great choices are only $5!

Pile on the finger food with everyone’s favorite $6 onion rings, fried pickles and jalapeno poppers! They are the standard in pub grub and come with a side of smiles from our wait staff. We’ve got several dipping sauces that range from sweet to extra spicy to add even more flavor.


Are you looking for an appetizer that eats like a meal? Dive into our cheeseburger sliders with grilled onions, a buffalo and blue veggie slider, or chicken strips for a filling $7 meal. Any of these baskets will fill you up, but you may want to pair them with a basket of tater tots, French fries, or the green salad from our Happy Hour menu.

Come to Mock Crest Tavern after work and join us for our first Happy Hour of the day from 3-6pm, then stick around from 11pm to close for more “good food, good music, and great times!”

Knob Creek Bourbon and Portland’s Bitter Housewife Bitters Company have come together to produce a Knob Creek Cherry Bitters. Mock Crest Tavern has added this delicious bourbon to our large collection of top-shelf liquor to usher in the upcoming Pacific Northwest cherry season!

Mock - Cherry Drinks


I stopped in after work recently for a Manhattan using Knob Creek Bourbon, sweet vermouth, Knob Creek Cherry Bitters, and a cherry dunked inside the glass for garnish. It was a strong drink that was perfect for the five o’clock cocktail hour.

Old Fashion

Mock also uses this fruit-flavored liquor for other drinks. You can enjoy the taste of Knob Creek Bourbon and Knob Creek Cherry Bitters mixed with sugar to make an Old Fashion. It’s a standard among bourbon lovers and with the cherry you’ve got a new twist on a tried and true drink.
