Lunch time bite...

Great selection of lunch time snacks. Buffalo chicken wrap was superb. Club sandwich looked great too. Service was excellent both polite and timely. Unlimited refills on soda. A must if you are in the area. Oh and if you gave some spare time have a round of golf on the adjoining course. Fairways... read more

A must if you are in the area. Oh and if you gave some spare time have a round of golf on the adjoining course. Fairways and greens look great!

Everything about it was excellent. I have nothing to complain about. I would highly recommend this resturant to my friends.

Sitting on the golf course you would think Portafinos would have a modern country club feel, no. This place screams 1980. The food is good not great and the service is always a problem. Knowing that give it a try if you must, there aren't a lot of options in the area.

This is my favorite place for perch. Browned in butter, not battered and fried. My husband loves the filet. French onion soup is delicious. We have been going here for years.

Whether or not you are a golfer, and despite the fact it is mid December I highly recommend an evening outing to this unpretentious country club setting at the Briar Leaf golf course just outside of LaPorte. It is by far the best restaurant in the area. This region is known for outstanding prime rib. This is definitely the creme... More

I felt bad for our waitress - she normally doesn't work weekend evenings and was bartending too so she did the best she could. Same problem which is the same reason we quit going years ago....drop the food and don't come back and check and make sure things are ok. YOU REALLY NEED TO DO THAT!! The soup was good,... More

Service, food, atmosphere.. All faultless. If you go it is best to book and ask for a booth, but we didn't and it was lovely. Amazing to find such a great place in Hamilton

Nice dining room overlooking the golf course. The waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was outstanding. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the food and atmosphere.

The atmosphere is great. The food is simply wonderful. The service was fantastic. They went out of their way to be accommodating to my uncle who has a physical issue after a recent surgery. The price was a little higher but well worth it for what we had. This is our second visit there and we will certainly go back... More

We attended an anniversary party in the banquet room. While the staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating, food was average; it could have used some flavor. Nice event though.
