An Old Favorite

This is very good food, with chef's flare for exquisite taste. The setting is quiet and the staff is wonderful.

We have gone to Port O'Call for ten years and wonder why oh why is it not full every night? The service is wonderful, the food spectacular - this year the soft shell crabs and fresh oysters were especially wonderful and the restaurant itself is so lovely inside with stained glass chandeliers, artwork and beautiful lighting. It can be romantic... More

went here thinking it was a "bit above the ordinary". Was quite disappointed. Food was okay, then we went to lounge to hear a band that was an hour late getting there.

My daughter, grand daughter and I went there for our Mother's Day meal. My daughter had a craving for prime rib, which she had never eaten and that what we both ordered. The prime rib was delivered quickly and was so tender we could cut it with the butter knife. They only have one size portion, however, so it was... More

I had fried oysters which were the best I have had about anywhere. My wife had chicken , was outstanding. Great taste on both dinners. Our server Bryan anticipated all our needs and he is First Class in my book. The deserts are dynamite. I highly recommend this place.

Both meals were very tasty. No fillers in the crab cakes. My filet was cooked perfectly. The she crab bisque was good. I had a salad... More

I moved it up from a one-circle rating because the service was delivered with friendliness and enthusiasm. It was our first time, and we won't be back. This was family vacation, and we really wanted to like it as it is just a short walk from a favorite vacation spot. In reviewing prior comments, the reviews are all over the... More

The restaurant is very good but the band " cool hand Luke" took 45 minutes to set up, had lots of trouble with the feedback, couldn't decide on the set list and the proceeded to play bad rap. Band did not fit the atmosphere of the restaurant
