This place is an attempt to create a city-like venue in a rural area. The owners haven't done a bad job. The food was good. They do have to make some changes with their salad, though. Small bowl big leaves. A little overpriced on the food for what you get. The service was quite pleasant but the wait was a... More

This was our first visit to the Port Pub. We made a day trip to the Valley and made reservations here for dinner. We were seated immediately. We ordered drinks and peruse S the menu. I'm very familiar with Pete's Phone Booth red so I ordered an 8 oz glass. $12for a glass of local wine seemed steep considering the... More

visited with friends and children. Excellent craft beers on the menu with local wines. I had the lobster poutine which was superb. My wife had the wild pork from a farm up the road so not really wild but still really nice. Children both had fish and chips which was a good sized serve with quality fish. Well worth the... More

Thank you for your review & recommendation! Our chef was featured on "AMI" TV / "The Four Senses" 2017 with his lobster poutine & the wild boar is sourced through on of our local suppliers (not raised on their farm) but the product they bring in is wild caught! We are pleased you enjoyed your visit! More

Went with some coworkers while at a conference. Very nice location. In warmer weather they have nice outdoor seating area. It can get quite loud with large number of people which did happen while we were there. A couple of us had the Wednesday special which was a beef steak. It was 8 ounces. I would say 5 ounces was...

Thank you for your review & we are glad you enjoyed your visit & yes we are a busy, bustling location in which the noise level can get loud but enjoyable to most looking for the pub experience. We also have private dinning available in a quieter room which can be booked with a consultation with our chef. AAA prime... More

We luckily found this gem while driving around the area - and so glad we did. The food was delicious and all 4 of us enjoyed the seafood. It really was some of our best meals that we experienced during our trip. Our waiter helped make our meal memorable too. We would stop here again.

The night we went they had a singer in the dining room - I think Tim V. Wonderful singer and choice of songs. The meal was delicious, duck egg rolls, Korean beef and the blueberry soda! We'd definitely go back!
