We recommended that 5 of us staying at the Marina have dinner here and it was wonderful. The beer samplers were fun and the service was great. We were too busy talking to be ready to order dinner when our waitress came by but she responded well and came back promptly. All the meals were excellent.

On arrival at the restaurant, we were greeted and seated quickly. We did have to wait quite a bit prior to our server attending the table - long enough to have read the menu and decided on the drinks and dinner. We were very close to leaving. It became clear that there was not quite sufficient serving staff to handle... More

Read through the reviews and was a little hesitant, however upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and escorted to a patio table. Service was perfect, food was very very good as was there beer (many local) and wine menus. Would highly recommend for a casual dinner and will definitely return. Cheers!!

So we were your date night place. Thank you. Sounds like you had a couple of good enjoyable evenings. It seems we had a bad Saturday ( the Air Show ). We were certainly overwhelmed that weekend. I believe we apologized for that in the only way we can - you didn't pay for anything.... the food you ate, the... More

Unfortunately I won't be going back.

Sandra So I took your comments at face value and responded too quickly. Yes it was the busiest weekend we have ever had. We have lots of choices on our menu, regretfully we do sometimes run out of items that are surprisingly popular on a given night. Our kitchen was also fully staffed. More bodies in the kitchen would of... More

We went into town looking for a quick bite to eat and happened upon this place on the main street. The menu is very interesting, the food was delicious and the waitress we had was excellent.

We arrived by chance - a neighbouring restaurant had a 45 minute wait on a Saturday evening, so we went next door. The Port Bistro was busy, and we didn't have a reservation, but they gave us a table anyway - we had the choice of inside or on the patio, and we chose the latter. The exclusively craft beers...

Description
Situated in the heart of Trenton, The Port Bistro Pub is located in a beautifully restored historical building overlooking the Trent waterway. In the summer season, there is a spacious patio where you can watch the boats pass. Inside we feature the work of local artists & live music on Friday nights. The Port features a menu of gourmet comfort foods made from the very best quality, local products. Everything is made in house including hand-cut frites, desserts, and all sauces and dressings. The menu changes seasonally. We are proud of our unique beer list featuring local, regional and international brews, a comprehensive wine list and a great selection of cocktails and martinis. Additionally, we offer warm, friendly customer service and a fun unpretentious atmosphere that is uniquely ours. We strive to go above and beyond our patron's expectations and make The Port something the community can be proud of. This is partially achieved through our Green Initiatives and by highlighting the area's finest produce, meat, beer and wine.The Port opened July 14th 2011, with new owners acquiring it on August 1st 2014. The Port is locally owned and operated. We invite you to join us for some shared plates with friends, a full course meal or just a drink on the patio.
