My family of 9 adults and 4 children ate here during our vacation to Emerald Isle. We had eaten here previously and submitted a review but thought it important to review again. We found the restaurant to be very family friendly with highchairs and booster seats. They had plenty of room for all of us; service was speedy, friendly and... More

The food was very good, but was offset by slow service and inattention to our needs. There was no reason to stick us in a corner where we could be forgotten, as there were numerous available tables near the windows. Why are couples always seated near tables of loud patrons or screaming children. The hostess could have take more time... More

Our family had a delicious dinner here while on vacation. The highlight of the dinner was our waitress Pam who guided us through the menu and assisted us with our choices. All of her recommendations were on point. She was friendly, welcoming and added a positive touch to our dinner experience.

I had the shrimp sandwich with baked apples and potato wedges (really fries with skin on them). Meal was ok. Hubby had steak and shrimp sandwich, slaw, and "potato wedges". He was not impressed. The restaurant was not busy; however, service was slower than we expected. The view is wonderful--sadly probably the best thing about the meal.

My family and I (large party of 9) recently dined at Port of Call and had a wonderful dining experience. Whenever dining at the beach in a large group, you have to either arrive early or be prepared to wait. Port of Call offers a call ahead system (simply call 30 to 45 minutes ahead of your arrival time), that... More

Basic food and nothing to call home about. Service also mediocre, very slow. Portions also on the small side. Nice view of sound.

Ordered the "spicy" shrimp and grits. It was a brick of dry grit in an oily white sauce. The shrimp were fine, but there was no heat. There also were no promised asparagus or any other veggie. The best item from our order was the spinach salad. Otherwise, the other entrees were bland The only thing saving this restaurant from... More
