  • "Wonderful Sunday Buffett Brunch. Everything you can imagine, even caviar."

  • "This is my second time here and I really like the view of the harbor and the food. My champagne glass was never empty thanks to Faviola. After the great selection of food you can walk it off by visiting the shops. My friends and I have made a deal to go to brunch once an month. I will be bringing them here when its my turn to choose a spot in May."

  • "What a find for Sunday Brunch! Exquisite dining on the waterfront."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We enjoyed ourselves at Ports O'Call on Feb. 3, 2014. I had requested a quiet out of the way table with a view of the Harbor as we were celebrating our 41st Wedding Anniversary. We were given a wonderful table with a view of the Harbor and our Waitress was superb, readily available, helpful yet unobtrusive. Our experience was simply wonderful. The food was delivered in a timely fashion and was very good. When we are in San Pedro again we will look forward to another visit to Ports O'call"

  • "Went here on Valentine's Day and it couldn't have been more perfect! Great food and romantic."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is a nice spot for brunch and a good value. There is a nice variety of food to choose from with plenty of seafood options as well as things for kids, a carving station, omelet station, etc. everything we had tasted pretty good. also, I didn't know until we got there but brunch includes the harbor cruise ticket if you choose to partake. It was a bit chilly and we hadn't planned on it so maybe next time. Oh, the price also includes coffee, juice, and champagne. Not bad."

  • "I went with the same group for my birthday in October and it was their first time. They enjoyed it so much we agreed to celebrate a February birthday there. We'll go many more times!"

  • "All good things must come to an end! No more Caviar on the Salad Bar. Caviar was one thing I counted on at Brunch. Loved it on my omelets. No more.... Otherwise everything else was great. Best Menudo in town. Service was excellent, thank you."

  • "We went for Sunday Brunch @ Noon. We were seated right away. Waiter had water on our table, waited on us with coffee. Service was excellent , food was delicious, ambiance was great. We sat out on the patio and the scenic was great. We wanted to get on one of the boat rides, but was too full from the delicious food. Next time, we will do the boat ride."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "I have had brunch here many times, but this was not as good as usual. Possible it was because we had a late reservation but it seemed that the selection was not as good as I had come to expect. The food was good and there was plenty of it. It helped if you were into seafood."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We had a 5:00 reservation, since that was their last seating, and they were closing the brunch at 6:00. At this meal the food was for the most part very good. I did notice that they weren't bringing out fresh food as much as I would expect they did earlier. Some of the dishes had only a couple pieces and a few others didn't have any. They may not have wanted to bring out a full insert at that time of the day but I would have felt maybe at least a partial. The desert table was a bit of a mess at times but I attribute that to the fact that some people are really pigs when it comes to a buffet. They show very little consideration for the next diner and it makes you wonder if they have any manners at all. Overall an enjoyable meal."

  • "We love coming here anytime but the holiday dinners are wonderful. The buffet has it all and the service is always friendly."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Ports O Call was the perfect place to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The brunch buffet is truly amazing: great diversity of dishes (breakfast, fresh seafood, sushi, salad bar, mexican, and more), and all tastes great - not like the mass-produced food you find at some buffets. Located right on the water in the San Pedro port, I was very taken with the outdoor patio: It has been redone, and now has glass installed around the perimeter to shield diners while preserving their view, a sunshade canopy, and fire column heaters and a fire pit. That all makes for a very nice ambiance to enjoy during brunch! Excellent service as well - the staff made sure that our mimosas never ran out. I look forward to my next visit!"

  • "Window table was provided as requested. My margarita was not watered down. The salad bar was fresh & well stocked as usual. Servers were friendly, attentive, & did not disappear when we needed something. Prime rib was moist & tasty. Been coming here for over thirty years & Ports of Call never disappoints. The dining experience made my day & made my birthday complete."

  • "The place was great and the selection for the Sunday brunch was outstanding. The waitress was nice and very helpful and she was always on top of the champagne refills!"

  • "Great happy hour and a San Pedro classic. Jazz on Wednesdays too"
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "Great dinning experience after a memorable evening performance of Cirque Du Soleil just a few blocks away. Although this is predominantly a seafood restaurant, they're steaks are what have me coming back. The filet with garlic mash is definitely worth trying. For a starter, try the calimari."

  • "Always a great place to take friends and family. Great for parties too!"
    Dined on 10/16/2013
  • "While we had a great time, the service was pretty good and the views were amazing, the food was a hit and miss."

  • "So many brunch items to choose from, best brunch I've been to in quite a while"
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "We had Sunday brunch and were extremely pleasantly surprised. Not only was there a large variety of dishes available for the brunch, but the quality of the food was outstanding! My wife and I ate our meal on the patio outside, next to the dock and harbor. The service was truly amazing. The service staff was not only friendly and attentive, but seemed to anticipate your next request. All in all, a totally enjoyable dining experience. My wife and I fully intend to make this a regular "Port O Call" for meals!."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "My sister and I have Sunday Brunch here every few months or so. It's not cheap, but they have Crab Legs, and we get our money's worth in those alone. They have fresh tortillas for their Mexican fare, and all sorts of "heavy" lunch favorites. Standard breakfast fare is there: omelets and waffles and eggs any way you'd prefer. The waitstaff is professional and friendly and our Mimosas and Champagne was never depleted. We usually get there early enough to be offered a window table and watch the random boats and scheduled ships move in and out of the harbor. A great way to spend a Sunday morning!"

  • "While I loved sitting at a table near the water, the food did not blow me away"
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "What a great place to have dinner after visiting the Queen Mary. The atmosphere was amazing-right on the water, the food was delicious. The 50 item salad bar was awesome, and the seafood was delightful. One member of our group did not like seafood so he had the sirloin and it was great as well. They had music outside which we could hear from the inside but it was quiet and easy to talk. Our server was great. It was a great night, and we very much enjoyed it."
