Locals enjoy this fine dining facility and the chef knows how to produce excellent meals. Service was great. We arrived later than normal one night and the staff went out of their way to arrange a meal for us despite the kitchen having almost closed.

Considering Portland isn't known for its food this cafe was ok. Everything is either fried or over cooked here must be how the locals like it. It does come down to personal taste though and if it works for them why change it. After saying all that, it is the only decent place in this town

We have eaten at Fergies's many times over the last 3 years. Each time the wait staff are outstanding, attentive and polite. I cannot understand the negative reviews! We have eaten there as a small group - 2x couples- and as a large group: more than 12 ppl (many times). We have booked ahead when with a larger group -... More

Having come from Melbourne, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and range of food at this establishment. The staff are so accommodating and the food is delicious. I recently took family from overseas to Fergies and they said it was by far the best meal they have had in Australia. Absolutely love this place and it is a regular... More

Attended here with a work colleague for an evening meal. The building is quite majestic as it was once an old bank with very high ceilings and lovely furnishings. The waitress was helpful although when she sounded off the specials it was a bit too scripted and everything had a delicious adjective added to it. My colleague ordered the Seafood... More

We were in Portland for 3 weeks and decided to check out some of the eating establishments we could tackle while in town. We had heard that Fergie's was a bit of a treat so left that for the 2nd week. During the 1st week we noted that most of the eating places were struggling big time due to the... More

We thought we would try Fergie's as we have lived in Portland for over a year & have always wanted to go there, so tried it out this Saturday night. I rang to book & I had to repeat & spell my name twice and it was wrong in the end & also my phone number was repeated back incorrectly.... More

We shared a lovely evening with friends at Fergies overlooking the bay with the lights of the Portland harbour glowing in the background. We all had the steak served with prawns and a white wine sauce cooked to our liking. Super, melt in the mouth! A couple of glasses of the house red complimented this dish.

Had a great lunch here early in Feb. then returned with friends to the biggest disappointment and embarrassment in tackling up venue then having one of the longest lunches ever. The waiter kept walking past clearing tables without once acknowledging us or even serving us water. We received water after an hour and then waited another hour for food and... More
