Love the décor and the views of the Fox River (from the patio and bar). The servers are always very attentive and the food is excellent. I just wish the prices were a little more affordable so I could go here more often.

The buffet food on Friday night and Sunday is outstanding and worth every penny they charge you. If the could be more consistent on food off the menu this would be 5 star +++ We are regulars for Sunday brunch and sit at the bar to enjoy the beautiful views and relax. They never push you even when most Sundays... More

I know that the idea behind this place it's classic charm, and waterfront location. These are the only two things I found great about Port Edward. I can honestly say that if this place were in a different location it would never last. My family went for dinner on Father's Day 2016, so this review if fresh. Our party totaled... More

Hi. We were here for the fish buffet. Lots of choices of fish and crab and they were very good. It's right on the river so with a window seat you have a nice view.good selection of other items on the menu.

Classic is the best way to describe this Fox River icon. Some could say it is outdated, but for me it is a place that the ultimate goal is service and a meal to remember. I have to say that a lunch along the river will always be my favorite. I have never had a less than perfect meal here.... More

We had a wonderful dinner last week at Port Edwards. Eat on a Friday night and had the seafood buffet. Shrimp, crab, raw oysters, sushi, tuna, carving station, and many international seafood treats. Not only do they have great food they don't rush you out the door like other places. We arrived for a 7:30 dinner and left at ten... More

Port Edward located on the Fox River has excellent atmosphere. The steaks, seafood, and desserts are delicious but a little expensive. The service was exceptional and we highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely return!

Have to say this by far is the best Sunday Brunch for miles around! Always plenty of fresh choices, with something to suit everyone, the seafood of course is great (it's what they are known for) but I am not a fish or seafood lover yet I still can find plenty to eat and enjoy! The staff are friendly and... More
