Portly is a good place, never had a bad meal there.

Portly is known for being a great place to eat have a few drinks. Great for couples or large groups. Waitress are great and service is usually quick. Be prepared to wait for a table on the busier nights/times

Add Mill St organic beer with the wings and it will call you back week after week. Yum yum... It takes some time but the wait is worth it.

The place was full of men!! Incredibly noisy, but we were seated in a back room area, somewhat quieter. Food was great, two for one appetizers that night, so bonus for the cost. Service was good, not rushed at all, so lots of time to chat.

Typical bar food as it's a pub style place which is close to my work. Service is ok but when you only have limited time to order and eat, it's probably not the right place to go. Food is pub food for example Fish and chips and burgers and sandwiches. Decent but not cheap.

Have been here 5 or 6 times and was always good the last two times wings were burnt and crunchy and the veggies looked like they had Bern out for awhile. Going to give them one more try

Have been here four times of late and plan on visiting this establishment this weekend. Every meal I have ordere has been a ten out of ten! and really a good price. My favourite place to eat! Keep up the good wok. Servers are lovely my husband in the industry so we appreciated the portly piper.

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.
