Staff was extremely attentive and friendly! Food was great! Only dislike are the hours of operation, but then the owners have to have a life too!

We were browsing around Portage looking for a place to grab a bite...In a town full of little cafés that you see them cooking your food on a hot plate or wiping their hands on their apron instead of washing them!

Dino's has its clientele, but for me, it is just okay. I would never choose to dine there on an evening out. The meal served at the conference was all yellow. Yellow potatoes, Chicken with Yellow sauce, and Yellow corn. Quite unimaginative and a bit salty. Other than that... just okay.

The food is good. The prices better. The wait staff is very friendly. We eat there mostly for their breakfast/brunch.

Great selection, great prices, friendly staff and consistently good food. One of my favorite places to eat in Portage. As a bonus they have a great little lounge for enjoying your after dinner drink.

This is a darker restaurant with a split bar and dining room area. It looks old and at least some of the food seems to have been made from prepackaged kits. An ok option but won't be my first choice.

w stopped there because it was close to the hotel and looked busy. It was, but worth the short wait. We had a delucous fried chicjen dinner which was so big we had leftovers. The chicken was so crunchy and good. Nice people in the plave as well. I would go there again if I am ever in town.
