Great food and service

Stopped in here for Friday night dinner and was blown away at the specials. Do not away from them. The penne and meatballs were average at best and over cooked. There are so many daily specials that are fresh and a better choice. I had a halibut that was delicious!

These guys are so confident of their place that at the time of our visit they didn't have an outside sign. The chef really works over time. They have a complete daily special that is as extensive as the regular menu. All the food was ecellent. The only reason I don't give them a 5 start review is because the... More

Five of us for dinner tonight - family meal to cap a small wineries trip to celebrate a Cornell graduation. We had a range of dishes. First of all, the waitress did an impromptu, informal blind tasting for my two sons with four of the wines by the glass - really nice touch and they greatly enjoyed and appreciated it.... More

Restaurant had a wide variety of dishes on menu for everyone's preference. Specials of the day very lengthy and could have been written out and placed with regular menu. Overall service and food excellent.

Service is great and the food is delicious. There is a good selection of local wines too. The Brie appetizer is the best!

Ports is known for its daily specials and they don't disappoint. We visited for my birthday and both my wife and I had great filet mignon dinners and shared a wonderful Brie pastry starter. Service was friendly though a bit slow. Ambience was American funky and lively (read happy noisy, but not drunk or boisterous). Food was imaginative, delicious &... More

First I want to give kudos to our server Erica. She was the most pleasant, attentive server in the world! She was so much fun to have serve us. The best part of the dining experience was having the specials read to us, the more she read the better the specials sounded. The Calamari was excellent, the fresh fresh salad... More

We enjoyed our meal. The experience was very nice and as described by many people in the region. The restaurant offers more specials than items on the menu. They are known for their service as well. I gave it four stars because we ended up having a server that was not very attentive and kept apologizing for not having our... More

It is a bit uncommon for a restaurant to have so many specials but it appears they operate that way based on what is fresh and available to purchase locally. All too often do we go to a good restaurant and order wrong but we went with a shared app. and then both our main courses were fantastic and did... More
