Great service, Good food

A little pricey but the food was good. Nice selection on the menu, a little something for those who don't like or cannot eat seafood. The crab-spinach dip and the lobster bisque were incredible. Serving are large enough to over fill the person who has a normal appetite. AND a plus.. if you... read more

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

We came upon Port of Call after trying another restaurant (The Crab Shack) and finding a 90 minute wait. The reviews were mixed on Trip Advisor, but the places was hopping and the menu looked wonderful to us. Reality was the appetizers, soup and salads all Seemed fantastic. When we received our entrees there was only of the table of... More

I live close to this restaurant, but hadn't eaten here until last week. We waited 30 minutes to be seated. Pretty standard I'd say, for this area. The service was very poor. We waited 15 minutes for our drinks, another 20 minutes for our orders to be taken and about 30 to 45 minutes four our meals. Four of us... More

We visited this restauranT once or twice every year. This year, we opted to sit at the bar to get faster service as we had limited time. We arrived at 7:10 PM, we left at 9 PM. During this time we received two appetizers and two rounds of drinks… We had to get our entrée to go. The service was... More

The mahi I had was good. They did not have a lot of fresh seafood options considering their location. Not enough price options. The menu is not price friendly for a family. They seem more interested in not being inconvenienced to provide good customer service thus the 20 percent charge for just providing more than one ticket per table. Not... More

Not a whole lot to say really good or bad about the restaurant. Average food at slightly above average prices. Pretty inflexible about any menu changes which makes average service just average again. Little fresh fish on the menu which is shocking given the location right next to the beach. The best thing about the restaurant is the view, which... More

The food is outstanding and the service was great. The view is to die for and the owners and sweet as sugar. I love this place and will be returning for the "Shrimpwreck!" I suggest if your on vacation in the area, make Port of Call your dining destination.
