Wait staff is good but overwhelmed. Food took 1 hour to come to table. Orders were wrong and quality was poor for the typical tourist fare ( hamburgers/fried seafood.). Expensive but a good view.

The food and service here are outstanding. I most recently had the shaded mahi and asked for asparagus (not on menu but used in another recipe). They graciously honored my request. Best Ever! The hush puppy 'rings' and other breads are fresh and steamy. I'll be back.

We decided to try this restaurant the second night of our vacation. The menu was very pricey as we paid $25 a person for our meals. The pick 2 seafood was $24 and the pick 3 was $25. So we got the pick three so we could have the one more seafood for $1 more. I ordered the flounder, Scallops,... More

Nice place for dinner. All the tables have a view of the sound. We came here when we saw that the place we had intended to go was very crowded. Port of Call was able to seat us right away. The restaurant was a bit fancier (and more pricey) than we were prepared for, but the food was excellent and... More

Just ate dinner there earlier tonight and it will be my first and last time eating at this establishment. Service and food were horrible. Our waitress was unprofessional the entire time. After waiting for our food for what seemed like an eternity she came to our table and told us our food would be out in a minute. She than... More

Let me start of by saying that the food was actually pretty darn good here but... We were looking forward to eating at Port of Call, but were sadly disappointed with the experience. It took long enough to get our water that all 6 of us took notice (including 2 distracted children) and then an extra 15 minutes to get... More

We ate here two times during our vacation for the week. The shaded mahi is to die for and the scallops were very good too! It is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money!

Went with 3 friends for dinner on a Thursday night. Food was good, service was good. We all tipped 20 percent. The next day while cleaning out my purse I noticed on the receipt that the restaurant had already added a 20 percent tip (not expecting it for a group of 4) and so we ended up double tipping! Just...

The view on the sound was spectacular! We enjoyed walking out onto the pier after we got our beers. We did not have to wait for a table and our waitress was prompt and attentive. The food was not fancy but very tasty. The best part other than the view was the warm hush puppies waiting for us at the... More

Went with a party of six. Everyone was well impressed. If you're looking for good seafood, forget about the Sanitary, and give this place a try. Food was a little on the pricey side, but excellent quality.
