I shared aa entree with my sister and ordered a salad. Both the salad and entree were very tasty. Everyone at the table thought the food was very good. The only negative comment I heard was that there weren't enough beets in the beet salad.

Our dinner experience was excellent.
Extensive selection of wines was good for our group's particular tastes.
The King Salmon was superb and I'm not usually a person that orders salmon.
Service is great, server had superior knowledge of menu and wine list and answered other off topic questions. We also had two children, one only a year old and they accommodated us with yogurt and granola for the little one and chicken strips for the older.
Well worth the price for a special occasion or just to spoil oneself.

Good food, good service
The menu, food and service were all good. Overall, higher end meal with a reasonbale price. Portions were large.

The food was very good, but for myself-just a little to fancy. It needed to have a good NewYork Strip or a Porterhouse to make it more worth my style.

Excellent Small town Glamour
The dining area at the port is relatively small but very 'Prohibition' era glamorous. If you get the chance sit near the fireplace, especially if your partner forgot a sweater or shawl as it can get chilly.
Definitely take the chance to try the more adventurous items on the menu as they change regularly - and there has never been an item we have not enjoyed. Heck the chef even managed to prepare a version of my least favorite food ever (beets!) that I would have gladly asked for second helpings of!

Overall, the dining experience at The Port was excellent. Service was friendly and very professional and the setting is unique. The food shows the creativity and imagination of the chef, and all four of us enjoyed each starter course and entree. The only criticism we all had was that portion sizes - with the exception of the steak - seemed a bit too small. We are not among those who rank a restaurant by the quantity of food at all. But here the pendulum has swung a bit too far in the opposite direction.

Great Buffalo Steak! We thoroughly
Great Buffalo Steak! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at The Port. We went there for our anniversary trip and enjoyed the food and ambiance. Only downfall if that the room was extremely cold. Bring a sweater or jacket to stay warm!

The Port at St James is a winner
Several years ago on a motorcycle trip along the Great River Road up from Chicago we stumbled on this restaurant. We've made it a destination every since, usually getting up there 2-3 times a year. Never a disappointment, the food is also fantastic with impressive specials on the weekends. Their Caesar salad is unique and incredible.
