After 25 years, Hall Street Grill in Beaverton has closed
According to its Facebook page, the restaurant has closed permanently. If you have a Hall Street gift card, they say it can be used at Oba Restaurant, which is owned by the same company. Their website is offline. Note: Oba went under April 2018.
According to a reader, a sign on the door says, “After almost 25 years Hall Street has closed its doors. Thank you for your patronage through the years. Best, Hall Street Grill”.
This does not come as a surprise to me. Hall Street has faded over the years. In January they posted that “Hall Street Grill is proud to announce that starting Monday, January 30th, Beaverton’s landmark restaurant will be open exclusively for dinner and happy hour…” At the time I marveled at the way they were trying to put a positive spin on what could not have been good news. This comes after they closed “for renovation” in October of 2015.
<updated>After just checking the PR email, I noticed a notice from HSG came in on Friday announcing two new menus. It sounds like this was a very last-minute decision.
Sad, but inevitable. I still remember the previous tenant: Clinkerdagger, Bickerstaff, and Pett’s. Love that name (impractical as it might be). I enjoyed going there way back when.

Wow, that’s quite the name. I’ve been around here for a long time, but don’t remember it.
Well you haven’t been around that long then. The property was developed by the Biggi family in the early 1980’s and Beaverton could boast many excellent restaurants resulting from the development of Beavercreek Village Phase 1 and 2.

I have no idea what you are talking about
Hall Street Bar & Grill been around a lot longer then 25 years
Jim Prouty says
Clinkerdagger, Bickerstaff, and Pett’s was a welcome upgrade to Beaverton dining, even though it was a theme restaurant. When it became Hall Street Bar & Grill, the food quality went up further. Of late quality had declined, pretty much as soon as they ditched their popular and semi-famous pea salad. But I’m sorry to see them go, and I bet a lot of Intelites are, too.

No one here has remarked what an amazing feat to be open for 25 years! In the volatile restaurant industry this is amazing. Congratulations to Steve McLain & staff for quite the run:-).
That was late ’70s/early ’80s time frame. We left the area after that, then returned in ’89, and the name/owner had changed during that time. So, can’t quite peg exactly when that transition occurred, but regardless, yes, it was a long time ago. And yeah, I’m also one of those (ex) Intelites that Jim is referring to below. :-)

Agreed, it is very hard to keep a restaurant alive for that long. I am sorry to see them go, I enjoyed many a happy hour at Hall Street Grill. I wish the best to the staff as this is surely a tough announcement for them.
David Frost says
Yes, good job to be open for so long. But too bad he couldn’t have shut things down in a more orderly and predictable manner for the sake of his employees. Can’t make Oba workers feel very good, either.
