“Great winter hide away.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Two couples enjoyed a fun evening with delicious food, excellent staff and super music. We went out for a quiet Sunday night with friends. We decided to try The Port. We had been there before and the Pad Thai was good, but last night we tried other things on the menu recommended by the server Chloe. Chloe made our night , she knows the menu well and made very good recommendations on food and wine as well. we enjoyed the seafood, salmon with Crab imperial and Crab cakes. I had the steak which as prepared just as I liked it. For dessert we all enjoyed the wonderful Bananas Foster with the CRACK ice cream. We will return soon, especially before the season comes on. I feel the staff can make or break a restaurant and in this case She made it.Oh and don't forget the bartender came by as we were leaving with a complementary whipped cream Irish shot..yum.

“Really fun evening!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We'd been to Port a couple of times before and liked it, but third time was a charm. It was a Sunday night and we were seated at a cozy table in the back. Our server, Chloe, greeted us warmly and was extremely attentive. She was knowledgeable about the food and the wine list and made good and honest recommendations, which turned out to be excellent. We had the spring rolls ($1.00 each on Sunday), and the hush puppies, both were hot and crispy,perfectly cooked. We each got different entrees - crab cakes, salmon, steak and Pad Thai - and all were delicious and also perfectly cooked. Bananas Foster for dessert was enjoyed by all of us. At the end the manager brought us all a complimentary whipped cream shooter,a nice touch. They also had a wonderful low-key band there who did some great covers but did not make conversation impossible. We happened to have a Groupon, but will not need one to come back. Maybe on a Thursday when it's This night? Mmmmm.

“A great place to eat”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Food and mixed drinks were excellent and our waitress was friendly. Highly recommend the shrimp pad Thai. If you are a smoker, you will appreciate the enclosed porch as a smoking section. Overall excellent.

“Great pad thai”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

I had read several horrible reviews about Port prior to going there myself. Mainly about one particular person with a poor attitude. Well, my friends and I took our kids there for a pre-Christmas meal on a Sunday evening. We ate in the restaurant side which we just about had to ourselves. The service was EXCELLENT and our server (Nico I think) was more than helpful. We didn't hang around the bar which is where previous negative comments were focused I think so I can't speak to that. However, our server went out of his way to provide excellent service, even providing some area sights too see during our visit. No complaints here.
