We go on special occasions and have never been disappointed. The menu is varied, but the daily specials (and there are many) are what we generally get. Food is very top notch and there is plenty. The only knock is that since the remodeling the noise level is a bit high. Highly recommended!

Ports Cafe is our favorite place. We've been going to Ports for years and have yet to have a bad meal. We would highly recommend this restaurant and also reservations well in advance.

My wife and I came for dinner in October and really enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent and we both really enjoyed the dishes that we chose.

I have eaten here before at least 2 other times. We make the trip from Rochester as it is so worth it.

Ports offers an amazing menu with a large variety of specials. Our food has always been really tasty. My husband often mentions this place as a choice when asked... I however, find it really noisy and often crowded... so it's not on the top of my list. At the right time this is a great place to have a wonderful... More

We have been going to Port's for years and we were happy or we would not have kept gong back. This visit on a Saturday with a 7:30 reservation was a disaster. We were seated after a 15 minute wait with no room at the bar to get a drink while waiting. The kitchen must have been backed up since... More

Ports was recommended to us by our Innkeepers in Penn Yan and we were not disappointed. They serve a standard and seasonal menu. The decor is quirky casual and service attentive. Arrive early as the specials run out as the evening goes on.

The food is always remarkably fresh and when the server describes it to you, your mouth starts to water just thinking about it. They have some of the finest wines in the area to compliment your entrée. Of... More

I dined at Ports for my birthday dinner along with my family. We made reservations which was a good idea because the restaurant was very busy. There were quite a few specials of the night to choose from. A few of us ordered salmon and loved it. The meals are fresh and healthy. The side salads had nice big pieces... More
