good food, good service

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... read more

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

This was a busy place -- which is a good thing. Our food was delicious, and our waitress was so helpful. My personal favourite was the Oriental Lettuce Wrap. Mmmm! There are so many food selections available, we may have to go back.

Not sure why this place is so highly rated. We were really looking forward to eating here because if the great reviews and was terribly disappointed. I had fish and chips, fish was greasy with a heavy bread batter which just soaked up the grease it was cooked in and tasted like they needed to change the grease. Fries were... More

Have been here several times over the past couple of years and have never been disappointed. I gave it a 4-star rating because the 3-star rating is just average and for a pub, the Portly Piper is much better than average. It is a large room with plenty of tables and TVs and while a bit noisy at times given... More

I have been to this restaurant several times. My advice would be order from the specials they introduce during the weekend. They are pretty amazing. What I like about this restaurant is that 90 percent of their food is homemade. The best lobster and crab dip i've ever tasted. You can actually TASTE the seafood. It can get a bit... More
