“Don't waste your money or time.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

PATHETIC food, pathetic service, overpriced drinks, nonchalant attitude. Don't waste your money or your time. There are too many good restaurants nearby. They have not change or improved in the last ten years.

“The worst Pizza ever...Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We ordered for take out two individual pizzas at Porto Bello last evening. A child could have made a better pizza from canned sauce and stale pita bread. There was nothing remotely redeeming and we threw most of it in the trash. Shame on this restaurant for preparing such an poor excuse for pizza.

“Great Sunday Brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our favorite destination after a boat cruise on Sunday mornings. The marina is right outside their door - great views. The Brunch Buffet has everything you could ask for and the price it right!!

“Food was Better but Male Bartender was a Jerk”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

First time I went here, the food was a joke and with the exception of a certain lovely and hard-working bartender Desire, the service was also quite bad.

I returned again in December of 2012, and found that the food had improved, but there was a certain male bartender who was a total immature jerk. He projected a 'could care less' attitude and was rude and got our drink orders wrong.

This place just can't work until they get professional management and dedicated staff.

“Lost Cause”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Year on year in spite of changing the menu, multiple management changes and an attempt to remodel. This restaurant is awful. Don't waste your time making the drive to this location (9 miles on Burnt Store Road). Prices are way too high ($13 for a burger, REALLY). Food is very inconsistent at best. Tried one more time for the July 4th buffet. The slab of ribs were dry and cold, meager cole slaw and baked potato for $23, What a waste of money. It is a shame since the location is wonderful on the water but that's about it.
