Friendly and professional staff. Excellent service and menu options.
I'm not sure if they were understaffed but the service was less than par. It took 15 min to be seated for our reservation and then after being sat, no server came to our table. I had to ask someone to please come. The food was really good and the property is lovely. However, the day after, our credit card was over charged by $70 and we had to call and have this fixed. Not sure I would eat here again.
Most amazing seafood dishes, service and outdoor seating!
On a short school visit with my daughter from Texas. Service, food, and cocktails were very, very good. Began with the crab cake appetizer, Chilean Sea Bass for an entree, coconut cake for dessert, and Queen Anne’sLace for cocktails. All were fantastic. Had a 700 reservation on the patio, because inside tables were unavailable. Was a bit concerned about the heat, but there was a nice breeze and it was an extremely pleasant evening. The only complaint I had was the flies. Constantly having to swat them away made it hard to completely relax and enjoy the meal and conversation. Surely there is something they can do to help with this. At any rate, we will absolutely have dinner here again in the event we revisit the area.
Father's Day. It was yummy and service is on point. Thanks for a great evening experience!
Wonderful meal, great service
Food was fabulous. Service was very slow at first but got better.
Overall a positive experience. However some flaws. It took us 30-40 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation on a Wednesday evening. Took another 10-15 minutes to be seen or offered water. The restaurant did not seem that busy so it was a bit supervising. Not sure if they were just understaffed or not moving at a pace we are used to. The food was very good, that was a plus. The hostess did apologize for the wait and the time it took to be served. Not totally sure we would come back again but it was worth a shot. We were impressed by the main courses.
Great food and service.
Everything was awesome except for the price of a can of Budlight. $6.00 dollars a can is outrageous. Will probably never go back.
We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. The foie gras was exceptional!
Absolutely the best fish I’ve ever eaten. The preparation is so delicious.
Staff professional, food and beverages exquisite
Great evening at Port Land Grille. One of the best dinners out we've had in a very long time. Thank you!
It’s our favorite restaurant near home. Always a fine experience. The eclectic menu plus great service has us coming back.
Great food and service! Always a favorite for our family
My husband and I took our daughter and son in law to Portland Grille to celebrate their marriage the day before. It was a lovely evening! Clyde was our waiter and he was amazing. We had a wonderful evening!
great service and food! especially considering our large group!
Always an amazing experience dining at the Portland Grille. Ask for Bob - outstanding waiter.
Apparently because of shortage of kitchen help the service was REALLY slow. The starters came in a timely fashion, but after that it was extremely slow. Twenty plus minutes to get one piece of cake? We were ready to just leave without it. Not the fault of the servers, they were very busy and stopped by often to tell us "it was coming".
They were doing a great business outside but inside was quiet and not crowded. Very busy for what I tought a Wednesday night would be. The food was great, but the options very limited. We had perused the online menu prior and of course what we had intended to order was NOT on the menu for the evening.
The food was excellent when it was served. The timing was terrible with us arriving at 7:00. Appetizer at 7:30 salad at 8:10 and entree at 9:15 with us leaving at 9:40. There was an apology that kitchen was backed up but no offer of a glass of wine or anything.
Food and service great, but very long wait between courses.
Everything was amazing- from the food to the service to the beautiful outdoor patio. Could not have asked for a better experience!
This is our go-to date night place! The food is always outstanding and the service is amazing. Saturday night did not disappoint...started w/cocktails and enjoyed a nice glass of wine with our meals. The NY strip was huge, I took half of my meal home and my husband raved about the halibut, no leftover there. With the restrictions eased we were able to enjoy our spot at the bar. We'll be back next month for our next date night.
Brought out of town guests here for dinner. Everything from cocktails through dessert was outstanding. 2 days later they are still raving about it
We had a fabulous dining experience at Port Land Grille. We sat outside under the market lights. The restaurant next to them had live music, which was perfect for us too. The menu had so many unique delicious choices we started with 2 appetizers! Lump crab & Tuna tartare. Then slit the fried oyster salad and Chilean Sea Bass. Everything was absolutely delicious!! Thank you Emily for taking such good care of us. We will recommend it to anyone we know who is going to Wilmington Beach.

Perfect for a fun girls night. Love the wine selections and food never disappoints.
Calvin was wonderful! They need more bread pudding but I’ll let this one time slide:)
Great food, service....will be back as it was our 1st visit
Bob was exceptional!! we will ask for him again. It was overall amazing
Came with friends to try something new. Our experience over all was mediocre. The menu is extensive and that may be their problem. One had to send her food back because it wasn’t hot. I ordered the duck breast which was hard to cut and harder to chew. I did like the risotto which had coconut and nuts. The person with the Scotchish Salmon said it had no flavor. Only the person with the steak was pleased with his order. Food was quite pricey to be so mediocre. They were out of our preferred bottle of wine. We probably wouldn’t choose to go back.
We Had a lovely seat outdoors near fire. With no exceptions, our waiter was excellent! We have eaten at PG many times and never had bad food. It was another lovely evening. Thank you
My birthday. Everything excellent.
We celebrated our daughters graduation from college with this wonderful dinner. The staff were so attentive and gave excellent suggestions. The cocktails were very delicious! We had a enjoyable non rushed meal. Highly recommend this restaurant for a celebration or just for an evening out.
A wonderful experience, the outside eating area for Port Land Grille is magical feeling. There are a number of other restaurants in this compound of businesses and do to this it feels like a series of outside cafes.
We have eaten there before, and as always the food and the service were exemplary.
We had steaks, and they were really really good.
I can't refer this place enough....go there....if you can, sit outside, though sitting inside is lovely as well.
Wonderful meal, service, and ambiance
We had a wonderful meal, eating outside with some friends! Food, service, and atmosphere were great!
The service was great very friendly and attentive staff. The food was amazing and portions were huge. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will definitely go back.
I have eaten at some of the BEST restaurants in Manhattan and the meal I had here was Absolutely Fantastic!!!! Diver scallops over blue claw crab risotto, my mouth is literally watering just thinking about this meal. My app was also fantastic oysters on the half shell super fresh and tasty and the shrimp were on point. I can’t wait to go again. Great job chef! If I had one complaint just wish the food came out quicker, but you can’t rush perfection!
