The Cobb salad is fantastic, with a great presentation, and everything about it was fresh. Partner ordered fish and chips, which tasted excellent, but was not of a generous enough portion for a "man sized" meal for the money. Great to be able to overlook the Algonquin River in the bar room... read more

The bar area is always fun, with great bartenders and entertainment on the weekends. Unfortunately I have never been impressed with the food. Summer is great sitting outside.

When we lived outside the area, we used to love to have special dinners here. Now that we've been here for 22 years, I have to say the food quality has gone down in the last 10 years. The best thing they have going for them now is their Bloody Mary Drink.

Last night, the family and I decided to go to dinner at Port Edwards, and was I ever impressed. Walking in the door, you're greeted by a boat floating in the water, inside of the restaurant, and come to find out, you can reserve the table inside of the boat. The entire restaurant is done in hardwood and sea and... More

As recently as a few years ago this was a good 4 stars sea food restaurant. There are good points to this restaurant I should mention: one is the fact it is right on the Fox River so you can dine and enjoy the view. Also they have over a hundred very large beautiful fish on display swimming in a... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to birthday dinners at Port Edward restaurant. We both chose the Friday seafood buffet with Avery large selection of offerings. We had not eaten at the restaurant in years. There were a variety of seafood dishes from around the world. It was pretty good although I didn't care for the seasoning in several dishes.... More
