Going back for the soup!

The Brandied Wild Mushroom soup was amazing! I will go back to have that soup again and to try the other soups on the menu. The chicken wings were pretty ordinary. The sauces that came with the wings were OK (the best was the Thai sauce.) Sadly, the rum cake was dry and lacking any significant rum... read more

I hadn't dined at the Portage in over 15 years, and as we were in the area, we decided to give it a try. We will be giving it a miss from here on in. At least I will. I wanted the wings, so I asked if I could get a pound of just the wingettes and no drumsticks. The... More

The atmosphere is very upbeat, the service is very good. The wings really are the best in town and a good selection of beer. Year round access for boaters or sledders. Large booths downstairs. Facilities available with separate bar for large or small gatherings at a reasonable price. BTW, the photo currently shown is definitely NOT The Portage!

Always a good night at the 'Tage. Good food, good friends, warm welcome. Nothing fancy, but you're sure to enjoy. Don't miss wing nights Tues and Fri nights. Great pizza to eat in or take out.
