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.

This was our 2nd visit to Portafino's (the first in August of 2012), and it did not disappoint. My husband and I and our 7 year old twins visited around 7:00 pm on a Thursday evening. Hubby had the lamb, I the citrus chicken and pilaf, and the kids alfredo and spaghetti. We all enjoyed our meals, although I felt... More

Located in a golf course building, the decor here is bit outdated but you're not going there for the looks. The food is excellent and the staff is always friendly and accommodating.

This has become an annual event for us now, and we have yet to be disappointed in any of the meals that we have eaten in this restaurant. The salads were crisp and fresh, and the fresh bakes breaks were a interesting and tasty choice to go with the salad and our meals. The Atlantic Salmon was done with a... More

Located in the local golf club, this restaurant is open to the public. Signage is poor and we had a hard time finding the entrance. We ended up coming in thru the back door and encountering a group of pretty rude and arrogant male golf types. I ordered a glass of wine, which the waiter forgot to bring until reminded.... More
