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

This restaurant is in need of some updating. I will say that this past year, they did update the menu and have lots of choices. We do enjoy sitting outside on the dock and listening to live music on Sunday afternoons. Their menue has become much more diverse. The restaurant itself is "tired" and in need of some updating.

We were looking for a different experience from our usual restaurant preferences and decided to try Port Edward. It has been many years since we had a dinner there. We started with an order of Oysters Rockefeller. They were excellent. I then had the clam chowder it was excellent. When the dinner arrived my fried shrimp it looked over cooked.... More

Food was overpriced for the quality and taste! We we're going for the atmosphere but unfortunately the outdoor seating was closed due to weather conditions. I brought my leftovers home but didn't eat it. Service could be better considering there weren't many tables in the dining room that evening.

port Edward has the enviable location of downtown Algonquin on the Fox river. The parking lot has great view of the Fox and the restaurant has a boat floating in an indoor pond for a really romantic dinner. possibly even more romantic id the private booth in the lighthouse, where you are alone and secluded! The menu is varied, the... More

This place has an almost iconic reputation locally, even I grew up locally and remember my parents raving about Port Edwards. Here in the mid-west it seems difficult to have a good seafood restaurant. We have been avoiding this place since having a horrible experience with a brunch, but my son chose Port Edwards for his 14th Birthday Dinner. We... More

Port Edwards Restaurant had just average food and service. I had expected better when I read reviews, so perhaps I had expected too much. The restaurant looks old. That with average food and service made for a disappointing experience. I do not plan on returning there.
