“Lobstah Pie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Four us went for a birthady celebration. Food was great, service was efficient and all the staff were pleasent. App was saute' mussels which were tasty. My lobstah pie was ooh so good. A couple of Blue Moons to wash it all down and a good night for all. Good value with the pricing.

“Try it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

I haven't been to the Porthole for a few years but decided to go with friends this past weekend. We all came away very impressed with the food and the value. Two of us had Prime Rib. It came as we ordered it and was a huge, tender portion that came along with sald, bread, choice of potato and choice of vegetable all for only $15.98. It was fantastic. Two of us had seafood, the Haddock Roman was awesome, a tender, fresh piece of haddock cooked with leeks and tomotos withall the sides and salads, all for only $11.98. We had a very nice bottle of wine for $21.00 and a great desert which we all shared. The Porthole has a huge menu that can please every eater. The waiter was excellent, casual but helpful. It was really nice to leave a restaurant knowing that you had a great meal and didn't feel like you were robbed. Try it - you'll like it!

the food was terribly over done and the management could care less about making the customer happy! We were a party of 11 and 9 of 10 were unhappy with the food

“Excellent food, reasonable prices, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

We actually ate here two nights of our four night visit because it was so good the first time. The fish is mostly haddock, though they do have scrod also. The shellfish menu is much broader. The service was very good. Prices were fairly reasonable, with the fish dishes running $9-$12, much better than some of the other seafood places around.
