The Bar's Original Name Was: Six Point Inn
Over Easy Bar & Breakfast Address: 6801 N Columbia Way Portland, OR 97203
Six Point Inn, later renamed to Over Easy Bar & Breakfast, was a Portland, Oregon bar that was featured on Season 4 of Bar Rescue.
Though the Six Point Inn Bar Rescue episode aired in July 2015, the actual filming and visit from Jon Taffer took place a few months before that.
It was Season 4 Episode 24 and the episode name was “It’s Always Sunny in Portland”.
Six Point Inn is in Portland, Oregon, which explains the name of the episode.
Oleg Pilipenko is the owner, and he bought the bar in 2009.
That means he’s owned it for around six years at the time of the Six Point Inn Bar Rescue episode.
Sunny, his stepdaughter, is a business major, and he hopes to give her the bar.
At first, the bar was the only one in the area and was very successful. At its peak, it was earning over $30,000 per month, which is nothing to sneeze at.
Oleg left the managing to Sunny, but she was too inexperienced, and soon the bar began falling apart.
Sunny is rude to the staff, which has driven away customers.
The relationship between Sunny and Oleg is now tense due to them being one million dollars in debt.
Jon Taffer meets with Oleg in the SUV to discuss the bar.
Teresa and Jake bartend, and Sal is the cook.
Jon and Oleg watch Sunny be rude to her staff in the footage.
Don, Matt, and Bart, three local bloggers, go into the Six Point Inn to spy.
The drink they order is too sweet, and in the kitchen, they watch Sal microwave the gravy for their food.
Jon Taffer and Oleg head into the bar, and the spies say they are disappointed in the food and drink.
Sunny tells Jon she is overwhelmed and feels like her father has abandoned her.
Oleg tells Jon he is swamped building other bars and cannot train Sunny.
Jon leaves and comes back the next day for breakfast.
Breakfast is a hectic time at the bar.
Mixologist Phil Wills and Chef Pink join Jon Taffer at the bar to assist with the rescue.
Phil makes the bar staff make him a specialty cocktail, but they do everything wrong.
Sal doesn’t want Chef Pinks to help in the kitchen.
After breakfast, the staff tells Jon Taffer that they hate that they are micromanaged.
The experts begin telling the team the changes they want to make, but Sal refuses to get rid of the microwave gravy.
Sal doesn’t want any women in the kitchen and begins an argument with Chef Pink.
Later, the two talk, and Chef Pink tells Sal she will stay but only with his help.
Phil trains the staff on the right way to muddle ice.
Chef Pink tries to take Sal the proper way to make a gravy, and he agrees it does taste better.
Jon Taffer holds the stress test during the daytime since they are busy.
The customers are given thumbs up and thumbs down stickers for their service.
Sunny is stressed, and the bar staff is making drinks wrong.
The bar runs out of ice, and Sal burns a burger in the kitchen, telling Jon it is just well done. That’s an optimistic view on things haha.
Jon shuts the bar down, and they are given more thumbs down than thumbs up.
Jon tells Sunny she did a good job. Oleg promises his stepdaughter he will support her more.
At this point, the experts continuing training the staff on the new concepts for the bar.
In the kitchen, Chef Pink trains Sal on a chicken sandwich.
The bar staff learned how to make a cocktail inspired by Spanish coffee.
The staff returned to the bar thirty-six hours later to see the renovations.
As part of the changes, Jon Taffer has changed the name from Six Point Inn to Over Easy Bar and Breakfast.
The team is then open for the relaunch. The bar staff shows confidence, and the bloggers come back and enjoy their meal.
So was the Six Point Inn Bar Rescue episode a smashing success? Keep reading to find out what happened next…
Over Easy Bar & Breakfast Update - What Happened Next?
Now that we’ve recapped the Over Easy Bar Rescue episode, let’s talk about what happened after Jon Taffer and his crew left Portland, Oregon.
Things seemed to start off very well for the bar.
At the normal check-in with the Bar Rescue producers, we learn that food sales are up by a massive 65% and drink sales are still up by respectable 35%.
Those increases will definitely help them get back to the $30,000 per month that they were earning before (and help with the $1 million in debt).
They also seem to have stuck with Jon Taffer’s changes, including the name.
That’s great to see as some bar owners don’t trust Taffer and ditch the name shortly after he leaves.
However, there is one change that didn’t stick – Sal switched back to his original gravy recipe!
Is Over Easy from Bar Rescue still open?
As of 2023, Over Easy is still open and serving customers in Portland, Oregon.
It’s doing so under the Over Easy Bar and Breakfast name that Jon Taffer gave it, though they use The Over Easy Bar on some social media profiles.
Here’s what the Over Easy Portland location looks like in the most recent Google Maps street view shot (which was April 2022 last time I checked):
Over Easy’s entire body of reviews seems good but not amazing, as it has a 3.5 star rating on Yelp and a 4.1 star rating on Google reviews.
However, recent reviews from 2021 and 2022 seem much better, as they’re pretty much all 5 stars.
I had to scroll a lot to find lower than 5 stars. And even then, a lot of the reviews were 4 stars.
This suggests that the bar has done a good job of fixing its issues and sticking with Taffer’s training.
Here are a sampling of reviews that were written after the Over Easy Bar Rescue visit.
5 star Yelp review from July 2021:
Amazing Pulled Pork.
Lacey is the sweetest bartender and is always moving around helping out.
Great hidden spot.
5 star Yelp review from April 2021:
The chicken wings were fire.
I also appreciated the prices and portions, good yummy filling meal.

5 star Yelp review from April 2021:
Come for the service, stay for the Freezer Jam (trust me you won’t regret asking for it)!
Jess was great and gave me a free coffee with my to go order just cuz… food reminds me of the Midwest, greasy, hearty, and tasty stop by some time!
5 star Yelp review from March 2021:
After working hard to help friends move our last trip was out to the dump in NE Portland.
Hungry and exhausted we stopped into a place near by in St Johns called Over Easy and so GLAD we did.
Our server JESS was helpful regarding the menu and our drinks were awesome.
We had chicken fried steak and pulled pork hash. We upgraded toast to biscuit. and upgraded to pancake on pulled pork hash.
This is a great neighborhood place and we will be back.
Thanks Jess, your service was spot on and we could tell you were smiling under required mask.
5 star Google review from February 2022:
Stopped in for a bite to eat. Not normally on this side of town, but decided to stop in because beakfast is served all day.
The waitress was friendly with a lively crowd due to the football game.
No frills bar with large portions at a decent price.
Video poker machines are available and several tvs to watch sports.
Looking forward to our next visit.
4 star Google review from November 2021:
This is definitely a 4 star establishment.
The signs for the entrance aren’t completely clear.
The staff are extremely friendly.
The food isn’t mediocre nor is it 5 star review amazing but it gets so in between that its 4 stars and that’s just where it is.
I did enjoy the experience and the food is tasty and I am not saying it is bad by any means but it isn’t the most amazing I have had.
I would absolutely come back again tho. 4 star review.
