Description: 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 most weekends. 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 and 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.

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

Travelling through to Toronto, I met a friend in this little town called Trenton. I never expected to experience the quality of food that I did at the Port. Initially I was really impressed by the atmosphere, romantic, modern and classy, and then the service we received as soon as we entered the door was excellent. We were seated right... More

I'm now disappointed twice, since new ownership and management took over in August. The selection of meals has gone up, but that is the only "good" thing. The quality of food has definitely gone down. I miss the unique presentation and fresh food. And the service: You can tell there is a different leadership. In short: I'm not not sure... More

Their food and service are great but their selection is limited and quite pricey. I still love going just for a pint though.

Went with family. I had Port Bistro burger with frites. Rest had either Lamb Shank or steak. I took a few bites of my burger, and noticed a distinct "sour" taste to the beef. I had one of my family members taste it (who has chef experience),advised me not to continue eating it. I informed the server, who did kindly... More
