This place is tiny but absolutely awesome! I had the citrus Grouper which was delicious! However, my husband was not very pleased with the special. The Flounder was stuffed with little crab and too many spices. However, the warm spinach salad was good and the filet-steak. The trio appetizer was also very tasty which included fried shrimp, calamari, and a... More

Arrived at 3:30 to eat as it shows they are open from 5 am to 10 pm. They don't open until 5 pm. Very disappointed. Someone needs to fix what is listed here. We are from out of town so had no way of knowing it might be listed incorrectly and no phone number listed.

My wife and I spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Port A. We managed to get reservations for the Thanksgiving Buffet. First, when we called one week before they were booked full but we were put on a wait list. Katie called us the next day and we were given an 11:30 seating time - Great, we will take it! But...

First we were greeted by two hostesses that made us feel very welcome. The menu had many options to choose from seafood, steak, quail to lamb. We chose the Warm Spinach Salad, Ribeye and the Tenderloin and Shrimp Tower. The presentation was beautifully done and the portions were more than enough. The steaks were cooked exactly to our request and... More

This place was great from start to finish... The lamb was amazing and the risotto was creamy dreamy and if you're a lover of key lime pie the slice here is a true contender. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere was upscale but laid back all at the same time. Do yourself a favor and stop in... More

This restaurant was great. we had a reservation and our table was set up for us as soon as we walked in and were seated. Only one server was on and she was very busy so it took almost 15 minutes for her to take our drink order. But then she was very attentive and the food was incredible! oysters... More

The bread and salads were great, service was commendable however the steaks, Ribeye and Strip, were cut so thin that they were barely edible. The Grouper was overcooked. Will probably give them one more chance before we give up on them.

It, like the Tarpon Inn, keeps with the whole wooden feel from floor to celing. The food was very good, and the service was average. Really nice venue for Port A.

Positives - The restaurant is nice, although tiny, so if you sit inside, it will be noisy if the place is full, not exactly a fine dining atmosphere. The service was good and friendly. Negatives - The food let this restaurant down badly. It is in no way fine dining. You cannot just present something fancy and class it as... More

This is the perfect restaurant to celebrate a special occasion - adults only I would think. There are about ten tables covered in elegant black table cloths. The chef and sous chef can be seen cooking from each of the tables. The three main courses we had were each elegantly presented and delicious - two different flounder dishes and one... More
