We hadn't been to the Port Tavern for about a year...
We had been to the Port Tavern a couple of times after it opened a couple of years ago and had a great burger and hand cut garlic fries. We really enjoyed the food and the fact that the burgers were hand packed and the fries were hand cut. We also really enjoyed their beer selection.
On this trip, we discovered one our favorite beers on tap, Troegs Nugget Nectar - a nice surprise. We ordered burgers. I had the specialty "board burger" - sirloin with short rib on top. I ordered medium rare and it came out well done. The short rib was tough and chewy. I liked the idea of the burger and it would have been good if it has been cooked to the correct temp and if the short rib had been falling apart rather than really chewy.
My wife also ordered a medium rare burger which came out well done. To her credit, the server offered to have them re-cooked, but we were with our two year old (who really enjoyed her fish and chips) and we just didn't have time.
Unfortunately the hand cut fries have been replaced with what seem to be frozen fries (not sure about this but they really didn't seem hand cut).
It's too bad that the care that was evident from our first experiences here seems to have disappeared. We may give it another shot, recognizing that every kitchen has an off night but we'll more likely just grab a beer here and get dinner somewhere else.
