“always a great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Let me start with saying great customer is for me important, I get that every visit! The food is great quality, taste great, always plenty to eat on the plate. Their pies are out of this world. And the
view of the Harbor is worth a thousand bucks.

“Damn good diner with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Reliably good food and fair prices. it's simply a big diner with a killer view. Their French Dip is reliably excellent. Donna's homemade pies are wonderful, too.

“Tourist Trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Possibly the worst dining experience we have ever had. We have lived in Gold Beach for several years and have never heard anyone say anything good about the Porthole. Can't figure out why people keep going back. The food is bland at best. The prices outrageous and the service horrible. The last time we were there, my wife ordered an over-priced steak. It was tasteless and so full of gristle she couldn't eat it. When she told the waitress, her reply was, "I know. We get some really bad ones about half the time" She then walked away from our table.

“Port Hole Cafe, lunch, Gold Beach, OR”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

The menu read GRILLED OYSTERS in the Seafood Combo entree. All oysters, prawns, scallops and fish was heavily breaded and fried. The vegetables were good. Clam chowder was ok. But have their pies instead. They are better with this than the seafood.
