My husband purchased a Groupon for this restaurant in July. He thought it was for a restaurant of the same name in Kingston,Ma. So because of the Cape traffic, we decided to wait 'til the end of the summer. We arrived to an empty restaurant, & were a bit apprehensive. We ordered the mussels for an appetizer. We agreed they...

Stopped by for drinks and appetizers on a Friday night. It was busy, but not noisy. Drinks were good, brie with figs was outstanding!

We have been to the Port many times. We have had dinner there on each one of our visits to the cape in the last few years. The menu is really nice, our service has always been good and the food is superb. We particularly enjoyed the baked brie w/ fig appetizer and the pumpkin ravioli. I would consider The... More

We make a point of going to the Port at least once during our vacation every year. It is a more upscale dining experience but you can still dress casually. We had the muscles for an appetizer- delicious! We had a pasta with seafood dish which was out of this world. Really good food, fun atmosphere- always have a good... More

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
