“Big Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stopped in at the drive in after a day at the beach/hiking. Choose it since it was late and our kids were already tired and everyone was still sandy, wet heads, etc. Huge menu and food was pretty good. We had to wait a VERY long time for our food, but our waitress was very apologetic and explained there was a mix up. Despite the mix up, would return if you are looking for relatively quick food and don't want a typical fast food place.

“Average food, reasonable prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you just need something to eat, this will suffice. The drive in experience is unique, but the menu is average and nothing special. Had a burger, fries, corndog and rootbeer. Basic diner or festival food. Probably a good place for families visiting the area. If your an adult looking for a great food experience, you could skip this one.

“Great for Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed the coney dogs and root beer in frosty mugs. Our family of three ate for under $20. Reasonable and yummy!

“time travel without the pesky time machine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The BK root beer is a great place to start, but make sure you try the Green River soda. Two different Chicago hot dog recipes are on the menu, along with the surprisngly good nacho dog, and another 80+ menu items. You will definitely find something you like to eat here! Service was friendly and prompt. The waitress even offered us a dish of water for the dog. Treat yourself to a stop at The Port!

“A wonderful 50s throwback...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Coney Dog, Fries and a large frosty mug of root beer; served on a tray brought out by the carhop. Service was lightning fast. Be sure to ask if you want anything on your hot dog... or it will come plain. 4 hot dogs, one large fry and two large root beers.... $14
