This was our first visit to Port Hole Cafe, and we're so glad we went. We've passed it by many times, thinking it was primarily a bar. Since the restaurant has the word "cafe" in it, I guess we're pretty slow to get it! Anyway,...More

Really good sandwiches and a super bar. We usually do take out with the roast beef sandwiches and sometimes steak sandwiches.

Place is a great dive bar, ive been here many times and the bartenders are fast and friendly. Prices are also reasonable, and just a short walk to the beach

I like this place. It's a very low key dive bar with decent food and a good happy hour with very reasonable prices for Long Beach Island. I like their humongous chili dogs.

Always a great time at the port hole. The food is typical bar food, as is the drinks. Good selection of tap beer, my kids enjoy going to eat there.
