Situated in the heart of Trenton, The Port Bistro Pub is located in a beautifully restored historical building overlooking the Trent waterway. In the summer season, there is a spacious patio where you can watch the boats pass. Inside we feature the work of local artists & feature live music on Friday nights. The Port features a menu of gourmet comfort foods made from the very best quality, local products. Everything is made in house including hand-cut frites, desserts, and all sauces and dressings. We are proud of our unique beer list featuring local, regional and international brews, a comprehensive wine list and a great selection of cocktails and martinis. Additionally, we offer warm, friendly customer service and a fun unpretentious atmosphere that is uniquely ours. We strive to go above and beyond our patron's expectations and make The Port something the community can be proud of. This is partially achieved through our Green Initiatives and by highlighting the area's finest produce, meat, beer and wine.The Port opened July 14th 2011, with new owners acquiring it on August 1st 2014. The Port is locally owned and operated.We invite you to join us for some shared plates with friends, a full course meal or even just a drink on the patio.

Great food, beautiful decor, awesome live music!

Went with my husband for a romantic "day before Valentine's day" dinner. We started with a heaping plate of nachos. Mmm. My husband inhaled the burger while I tried to go healthier with the beet and goat's cheese salad. So good it couldn't possibly be that good for you! I was really happy with the... read more

good spot in downtown Trenton. Great Selection of beers on tap like Blanche de Chambly. Food is ok, but a little pricy for the portion size.

i was travelling with family and we stopped to get a bite to eat. Port Bistro really did have something for everyone. I'm not normally one for burgers but the menu was full of such enticing descriptions I couldn't resist this one. I hate overlooked burgers but this one was pink and juicy. My friend had the wings which in... More

Our company held our Christmas party for thirty people last weekend at The Port Bistro. From the time we booked until the evening of our event the communication from the manager was great. He was very flexible in the planning of our menu and also printed a special message of our choosing on the menus printed for the evening. The... More

Wife and I went last night. Found the menu not as exciting as I think they think it is. I had the Irish lamb pot roast. It was tasty but boring at the same time. It was meat root veg and brown lol, not anything special. It could have used a little salad or something. Drinks were average price but... More

The Port used to be AMAZING and was my favourite restaurant in the Trenton/Belleville area. Under the original ownership, the food was totally homemade, delicious, and fresh. I was in the area recently and decided to go back. I was so disappointed. The food quality has definitely gone downhill and they've scaled back the menu and decor of the restaurant... More
