My family took me to Port Edward last night to celebrate my birthday. We have been to this restaurant many times throughout the last 25 years. We have gone for the Friday fish buffet, the Sunday brunch to celebrate numerous occasions, as well as dining outside by the Fox River in the summer. Last night was the worst experience we... More

Hi. I'd like to send my gratitude for your review. Obviously it's not ideal to receive but I'm glad to have your input. I understand your visit was not the most ideal but unfortunately we must agree to disagree on some of the circumstances. You are correct in that our birthday promotion is not valid with our daily specials, which... More

Went there for a Friday Fish Fry but were blown away by their seafood buffet. Without a doubt the most diverse, high quality and abundant seafood presentation in the greater Chicagoland area! Will definitely repeat our experience.

We have not been here in about 2 years. Very disappointing. The 6 oz. filet was tough. The filet medallions with the Stewards Choice entree were tiny- looked like small slices of Spam. The restaurant on a Sat night was very empty - I guess others have already figured out that the restaurant had gone down hill. The lobster bisque... More

Port Edward is a good sized seafood restaurant located on the Fox River. There is a large indoor dining area as well as outdoor dining right next to the Fox River. The seafood was good with good service. The food was a little on the pricey side.

I took my family to the Port Edward Restaurant for Sunday Brunch to celebrate my mother's 92nd birthday. I had taken my parents here a few times when I lived in Schaumburg during the late 70s early 80s. What a joy and treat it was to walk in and see that the restaurant was just the same as we remembered... More

It looks like they decorated this place in the 70's and haven't touched it since. The bathrooms especially really need to be re-done. The food is good, but not excellent and it is overpriced. After eating there, I definately did not feel it was worth what I spent.

We had the opportunity to go to Port Edwards on last Saturday night. We walked in and sat at a private booth overlooking the moored boat in the interior pond. We could also see outside the windows across the room. There was a firework show in the town clearly visible. The waterside outdoor area was crowded. It was a great... More

A group of us decided to lunch outdoors at the reknown Port Edwards. (This was my third time there this year.) The view of the dirty Fox isn't great and you're close to the overhead bridge, but the wait staff, dog friendly dining area, and occasional boat make up for the view. The lunch menu offers specials as well as... More
