Still ok but it has been downsized. Fewer options and the crab was waterlogged and lacked flavor. There was 2 servers spread between the omelette station, hot crab and the 2 carving stations resulting in long waits or no turkey or beef. Somewhat disappointing after coming here for many years. The dining room was half empty. I think the word... More

Port Edwards has the most fresh seafood we found anywhere in the Midwest. We've tried most everything on the menu and have never had a bad experience. Our favorite has to be the seafood buffet on Fridays...all you can eat and so much to try. Fresh crab, many types of fish, sushi, smoked salmon, a Cajun bowl of goodies and... More

Port Eds reminds me of the restaurants of yesterday with its old world charm. Seafood is their specialty and it shows. Love the buffet! Highly recomended!

On Friday evening for $42 per adult from 5p-9p they have an international seafood buffet, we made reservations for 5p and when we arrived it was pretty empty but its still a good idea to make one, by 7 it was packed and there was a wait. The buffet is very good, hot & cold plates, hot & cold crab,... More

I went to Port Edwards to celebrate a family member's birthday. I hadn't visited this establishment in years; however, and wondered about the quality. It surpassed my expectations. Unusual, but reasonably cozy elegance. Our server was very professional, polite and knowledgeable. Our food was delicious. Definitely a keeper.

Stopped for a quick lunch. Three of our group ordered the fried grouper sandwich. I ordered the lobster roll. We all enjoyed our meals and would definitely return. I really enjoyed the lobster roll which was served on a buttered roll. It was served "wet" compared to the dry lobster roll we had in New Hampshire. I would order this... More

Its about time that the owners of port Eds invest some money into the upkeep and try to enter the 21st century. Food is edible at best the staff is as crusty as the decor. Such a disappointment for a staple of the area. I dont get what the hype was all about. Possibly a real nice place back in... More

Many of our decorations and building materials are antique or repurposed from a prior life. We do our best to maintain the historical nature of these items which does involve careful care... More

Okay, I love Port Edward, LOVE IT, but over the last 2 years of being somewhat of a regular I am going to look for a new hangout. Many of my visits are usually in the summer enjoying the dock side tables and the outdoor entertainment. The service has now become mediocre at best. This review is based on a... More

Fine dining to snack or cocktail this is a great place to unwind and enjoy yourself. Inside pond and skiff are a unique place to feed the Koi and outside on the pier the kids can feed the ducks and carp while you eat outstanding cuisine. The Fox River view is great from inside or out on the patio. Service... More
