The best wings in town!

Wing night at the Portly is on Monday and Tuesday nights. They have the best wings - they are a good size, meaty and a variety of sauces. My husband's favourite is "Hot Grilled" and I usually just order Hot, with a beer on tap.

Salad was very satisfying. We came with our team on a Friday at lunch. Was quite busy and had to wait a bit - understandable. Some tables are right near the door - which can be cold during a frosty winter.

Great food, best around. We've ordered everything on the menu and never been disappointed. Food is always hot, best fries. The staff is fast and friendly and the management is involved. Great beer selection. Try the prime rib.

This is our go to place for wings every Tuesda night! The atmosphere, service and food are outstanding. I can honestly say that everything I have tried on their menu is fantastic. I highly reccommend you stop by but get there early especially on Tuesday nights if you are in the mood for wings.

Not a bad joint! I would go here for snacks and drinks but they do have quite an extensive menu. They try to stick to regular pub grub but I suspect the cooks are not native to some of it. Someone needs to tell them that Yorkshire pudding is not supposed to be orange in colour. Food quality is okay... More

We have been to the Portly Piper on several occasions. It is good for large groups, couples or families. The menu is extensive and we have eaten everything from perigees, wings, curries, fish and chips to burgers/fries, bangers/mash. We have found that the food is consistently good and the service friendly.

Great choice in the menu and beer. We were in a group of 25 sports club members, enjoying excellent bar foods and draught beers. Reservation needed. Excellent service, great bar atmosphere.

I have been to the portly piper numerous times. We go back because of the excellent service and the great wings. We are part of a hockey team so we usually go in large groups. The staff are very experienced and so efficient that serving a table of thirty people is no big deal to them. They are so organized,... More
