The salad and all the entrees were excellent. Nice ambiance and service as well. We would definitely return. It was a tad pricey.

Ok, I know, serving tourist all season can be a drag .... But let's have a little concern for the dinners you have, after all, taken money from ( a substantial sum at this establishment) for a dinning experience. Between work and leasure, I have eaten out a lot, a whole lot, but I have never experienced such a care... More

My husband and I have eaten at The Port every year on our vacation for the past seven years. We always start off with the mussels, scampi style. The bread they serve is some of the best bread you'll ever get in a restaurant and it is perfect for dipping in the scampi sauce. Make sure you ask for extra.... More

You could almost miss this place, the signage is so discreet. Starters of lobster and crab cakes for me, delicious, and a platter for hubby. The platter is huge and we could easily have shared it. I went for the swordfish and whilst it was good I have to say that I think its delicate flavour is overwhelmed by the... More

Oysters for a buck during happy hour were delicious, fresh, and served warm. It was a buck a piece between 3-5 daily.

Delightful waitress Megan took care of us. Oysters Rockefeller, slightly unconventional, well worth ordering. My husband's pistachio crusted halibut had great texture but was missing an element to counteract the creaminess. Just as my lobster Galliano was tasty but could have used a bit of acid or even crispy shallots to add another note to the dish. We will go... More

The food is excellent, but the food is very overpriced. The ambiance is nice, but definitely has a NYC feel and the pricing to go along with it. The restaurant lacks any New England appeal. It's a very nice place, and would be a hit in NYC, but plan to bring a lot of money!

We walked by around 4:45 and saw they had $1 oysters until 5pm, so we got a table. The hostess told us she 'hoped' someone would take our order before 5pm, otherwise we could just order off the dinner menu. Um--that's not really why we stopped! Took forever to get a waitress to come over to our table. Finally at... More

Sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience at The Port. The hostess and server should have told you immediately that you should expect to wait approximately 45 minutes for your Oysters. The Port Restaurant offers $1 Oysters from 3-5pm. Essentially giving away Oysters for free. With that being said, the demand is high. The Port will do close to... More
