Port Land Grille
Wife's BirthdayWe have come to celebrate all our special occasions at the Port Land Grille. This time is it was our choice for celebrating my wife's birthday. The folks who own it have a way of showing they appreciate your business and the food is always prepared perfectly. When friends visit, we also recommend they have at least one meal there while they are in town. Wilmington is a town full of really good restaurants, but after years of "trying them all" the Port Land Grille stands out as the best in my book.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienveGreat good and even better service. Our server recommended both of our meals and she was right no point. When my friend suggested a well done steak the server changed her mind to MW instead, great call.
It couldn't have been better. Thanks5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDissapointedWe showed up and Portland Grille did not have our reservation for 6 which I had booked weeks prior. Glad that we did not have to wait long for our table. Not sure why open table wasn't linked to Portland's books.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile I live in Washington,While I live in Washington, DC, my friends and I were gathering in the Wilmington area to celebrate the Azalea festival. I made the reservation to celebrate my friend's birthday. At the last moment, we needed to amend out reservation from 5 people to 8 people, and the restaurant was more than accommodating. The service was stellar. But the real star of the night was the food.
From the roasted chicken, to the salmon tartar, to the redneck egg rolls (amazing pulled pork!), to the side of lima beans - everything I tasted was fantastic. All the food was cooked to order and everyone seemed really please with the steak entrees. The only complaint from the table was the the sweet potato mash was too sweet. Amazing Night!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME! We plan to go backAWESOME! We plan to go back this summer while on vacation...We absoutely love this place. My wife has traveled the world and I have been a few places as well and this is truely a dining experience. WE LOVE IT!!!!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant has exceptionalThis restaurant has exceptional food quality with a great atmosphere . We had dinner with some friends and all four meals were prepared to everyone's desire. It was a great evening with the food, wine, and service -all making the experience exceptional3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I returned toMy wife and I returned to PG after several several months of other restaurants and again enjoyed our "dining out" evening. As always, the service is of the highest standard and the atmosphere is inviting.
Just a comment... the service and atmosphere far exceeded the entree I had. The ribeye plate came with hugh portions but was all brown. The meat was brown, the potatoes were brown, and the mushrooms were brown. No vegetables were served and the idea of "presentation" was completely missed.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we tasted was amazing.Everything we tasted was amazing. Our server made sure everything came out with excellent timing as well so the table wasn't crowded with food getting cold.
The service was still fast even though they were slammed for Valentine's Day. I was really impressed.
Once again, the food is the best I have had in Wilmington. It's better than Ruth's Chris and Port City Chop House, both of which I have frequented.
Port Land Grille is perfect for a nice date night or special occasion- I will be returning very soon.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been dining at PortWe've been dining at Port Land Grille for 10 years...........We've never had a bad meal or service. It is always at it's best!!!. We lived in Portland Oregon, very much like a restaurant back home.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!Our Valentine's Day dinner was our first visit to Port Land Grille. Viewing the website, reviewing the menu and reading the reviews gave us a pretty good idea of what to expect but it turned out that the Port Land Grille exceeded our expectations in every way! The service is exceptional and attentive without being intrusive. The food is top notch all the way. I highly recommend the lobster sliders. My taste buds are still somewhere in coastal Bar Harbor, Maine! Check this restaurant out. I promise you will be glad you did!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary to rememberThank you for making our anniversary one to remember! I had ordered some roses for my wife to be delivered to the restaurant and have waiting at our table. It was perfect! The confetti you provided was a nice touch. The staff really made my wife and I feel special by wishing us a "happy anniversary" upon arrival and departure. Our waitress was very considerate and attentive to our drinks and anything else we needed. Again, thanks for making our first experience of port land grille a notable and enjoyable one! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a fine dining location in Wilmington!1/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat hidden gemThis was a New Years Eve dining occasion and far from the limited menu, food factory style that so often happens on special event evenings. Our server, Bob, did a great job makeing us feel like we were the only table, the tables were filled, but on a gradual basis leaving the food and service to stay on course without rushing anyone. We loved the food, especially the great salad combinations, the duck entree and the Cocunut cake was to die for. Thanks for making a special evening even better. Probably one of the three best places to dine in Wilmington.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMAn Off Night At Port Land GrilleWe've dined at Port Land Grille many times and the food is always exceptional. In addition, the service has always equalled the food. This was not the case on this night. Incorrect items were delivered to the table, water glasses were left empty, silverware was missing, and the table did not receive the level of attention to which we've become accustomed. The restaurant was not particularly busy so I can't use this as an excuse for the faux pas. I am hopeful that it was a one time occurrence since this restaurant has remained our favorite for many years.12/22/2012 12:00:00 AMWe have usually chosen PortWe have usually chosen Port Land Grille for special occasions due to the rather high priced menu. However, the $20.95 menu items are perfect for everyday dining as well as special occasion dining. The food quality is always great.12/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
