The RingSide Experience

Recognized as the leader in Portland steakhouses since 1944, RingSide Steakhouse has been serving our community for seven decades with the same family ownership. At the steakhouse most guests begin their dining experience with RingSide’s legendary world famous onion rings - James Beard once claimed them to be… ”the best I’ve ever had.” RingSide Steakhouse Uptown has been perfecting the steakhouse experience over the past 70 years. Set in a one-of-a-kind brick building in the Nob Hill section of Portland, Oregon, this venerable landmark has its own civic identity.

From their first steps into the RingSide experience, guests are taken care of. Congenial valets will gladly park cars in the restaurant’s safe and secure parking lot and parking is complimentary. Well informed, long-in-service wait staff, some of whom have served at the restaurant more than 30 years, use their expertise to make the meal the best it can possibly be. The warm and welcoming fireplace along with the formal tuxedoed service signal to guests they are in a comfortable, venerable establishment.

Choose a steak from a menu offering a variety of USDA Prime and Certified Angus Natural Beef selections that are aged a minimum of four weeks. Steaks are hand cut on the premises and dry-aged steaks are aged in one of Portland’s only on-premise dry-aging rooms.

Entrée selections beyond steak are available. Diners can count on the finest in locally sourced lamb, pork, chicken and seafood; the twin Maine lobster tails are an event in luxury dining. To accompany one of these fine dining choices, pick a wine from a list of more than 700 labels. Wine Spectator, the magazine for devoted wine lovers, has recognized RingSide Steakhouse with its "Best of Award of Excellence" since 2001.

Both RingSide Steakhouse Uptown and RingSide Steakhouse East Side have been recognized with  significant awards and honors, including: Tom Horan’s America’s Top Ten Hall of Fame; Great Steakhouses of North America; Wine Spectator’s "Best of Award of Excellence" and the much coveted DiRoNA Award of Excellence – from Distinguished Restaurants of North America.

The Chef


Born in Fort Bragg, NC, Beau Carr relocated with his family to the Northwest at the age of eight. After years of working in various kitchens in the Portland area, Beau found himself at Huber’s, the Portland landmark restaurant, serving as Sous Chef. Upon graduating from Western Culinary Institute in 1990, Carr was named Chef de Cuisine at Northwest Restaurant, and was also tapped as Executive Chef/Owner of Chalet Swiss. In 1998, Carr joined the RingSide family as Executive Chef where he oversees the full culinary program at RingSide Steakhouse Uptown.

Beau’s love of food came early in life: his favorite meal as a child was a beefsteak tomato sandwich picked fresh from his grandmother’s garden. His mother’s specialty was their annual Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. When not in the kitchen at RingSide, Carr enjoys boating and the great outdoors.

Private Dining


RingSide Steakhouse- Uptown offers two spaces within the venue that may be used for private dining; The Barrel Room and The Wine Room. Your event has the option of a hosted bar, floral accommodations and specialty rentals.
