The best in town, Ports offers a great atmosphere with dogs that is second to none. Nearly a dozen specials that change daily, always fresh and delicious.

Second visit, with bosses that pay for large meals so we ordered a lot of appetizers and entrees. As with my first visit, I find this place to be warm and inviting with great service and very well prepared food. DO NOT rely on the on-line menu because when you arrive you will be pleased to find that the servers... More

The service is always absolutely fantastic as is the food. The problem I have is the seating is stuffy and mostly uncomfortable.

We enjoyed a late 8 pm reservation at Ports Cafe on a Saturday evening. The food was outstanding and we each selected a seafood dish from the long specials menu. The only downside as others have stated was the noise level - the dining area was loud but being that we had the late seating as tables cleared out it... More

We live locally (about 10 miles away) and friends have recommended Ports Café numerous times. So, we made on-line reservations for 4 of us for last evening. Table was ready upon arrival and the waitress, Erin Lee was very friendly, attentive and helped make this a great time. Difficult deciding what to order because of the great menu and the... More

Ports was suggested by Trimmer House B&B and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent with selections based on local and fresh. Make a reservation as they are very busy.

Third visit to Ports. Food, once again, was very good. Service was very good as well. All in all it is a pretty good value. The main drawbacks, which have been mentioned by prior reviewers, are the noise levels and the limited drink selections. It is very loud, so not the best for a romantic dinner out in my opinion....

Went there about 2 months ago. Great food, huge dinner special selection. Nice wine choice. A little noisy but you can live with that. Going back this Friday with my wife for our Anniversary. Don't drive past it, go.

Food and service was good. Just wish they had a better beverage selection. If you want to have an alcoholic beverage and you do not like beer or wine, you are SOL. If you don't also want soda, then you only choice was water (no lemon slice). Oh well, at least the water was free.

Ten of us descended on Ports and were treated to a great meal and great service. The arancini with short ribs gravy were outstanding. I had a fantastic Brussels sprouts salad. The duck and monk fish specials looked great and got rave reviews. Our server (Nancy?) was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. She steered us in the right direction when choosing... More
