There were six of us and everyone enjoyed their choice. My husband liked his smoked meat sandwich but he did tell the server it wasn't like what a smoked meat sandwich is normally like -but he still enjoyed it.

Two of us had the cauliflower rice and thoroughly enjoyed that. We meant to ask about the recipe:)

A lovely setting and the food was tasteful and very well presented.
The wait was too long and the service a little slow for the price.
The tables are a little small for four people.
It has great promise and i will return
The local brewed beer was excellent.

Very good restaurant with a small bar Varied menu items that were prepared well and reasonably priced. We had very good service as well. I had a very good lamb burger with a wonderful large salad side dish. The chowder was good too. Next to a tidal river that drains to next to nothing at low tied. We recommend this place for good everyday dining.

Great Sunday brunch, often been to the Port but this was the first time we tried the brunch menu.
Big portions well cooked and presented, a little more than some other venues in the valley but very well worth it. Beautiful setting, seating inside or out.

We come here every time we are in Halifax it is so consistent and so darn good. We had a mussel appetizer plus my wife had meatballs and I had spaghettini with scrimp. Delicious! We didn’t have room for desert but we have had those in the past and they are great as well

Pork was delicious veggies cooked perfectly. Good portion size. Husband enjoyed his arctic char. The creme brulee was perfect. Tyler was very attentive and professional. Beautiful spot on the river. Very busy Saturday night so make sure that you reserve your table.

It can get noisy at the Port Pub, but otherwise the ambiance, service, and food more than make up for that.

Great dining experience. I'm not sure they had a record of our online reservation but it wasn't an issue. The background music was a little too loud. Food was excellent.

We were celebrating a 1 year anniversary of a new home.
The only negative comment would be that the temperature was too cool for dining.
On a positive note our waitress was very good and we enjoyed talking with her

Last minute booking after an unexpected overnight stay in Grand Pre. Easy to book, pleasant engaging staff. Good food menu although it would suite me if there was a mashed potato option instead of fries or roast potatoes.
Devine desserts, difficult to choose.
Good views for outdoor dining in warmer weather.

Enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant, and our server Pam was phenomenal. I wish we lived closer because The Port Pub would be our place to go.

Great food, slow service. The maitre'd spent 10+ minutes seating the couple with a baby in front of us (they got the last window table too) without a reservation, our food took forever to be served, and we nearly missed the curtain for our performance despite allowing adequate time.

Unfortunately, this visit to the port pub was not as good as previous visits. I ordered the fish which was badly burned and the waitress was inattentive. I attempted to ask several times for another drink and she walked on by. She only came to ask how everything was, once we had all finished our meals. Too bad- we would’ve ordered more drinks but she didn’t take the time to check in.

Had a super fun dinner & eve upon recommendation of trusted friends who'd been recently. Had res and were a bit early/willing to wait in bar but after a few minutes' wait the gracious hostess had secured us a table for 2 at a window.
Nicole a perfect server and lots of fun.
Stayed thru local piano player/singer at bar while finishing wine(s) and dessert. Would come often if we lived anywhere closer than CT👍👍

Went here on a visit to Wolfville, and local hosts recommended the restaurant. The view was gorgeous - looking across to Acadia. We really liked the emphasis on using local ingredients, and some original food items. We sat out side on the patio. Service was friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back.

Party of three for a birthday. Very poor service. Food was ok. I had the lobster club. The lobster was very over cooked. The view of the tide coming in was the best part. I have had better at this restaurant over the years. I will assume summer students and a different cook was the variable for this visit.

Our table was ready for us and accommodated our wheelchaired guest with ease. The food was magnificent and service was fantastic. My only suggestion that could make things better is a sugar free/low carb dessert option. There were three diabetics in our group and they would have liked to have a suitable low sugar or artificial sweetener option.

Had been to the Port Pub before. Everything was great other then the noise level. We were seated near a table of 14 young women who were having fun but with their conversation we had difficulty hearing each other. They weren’t doing anything wrong it would have been better if we had been seated away from them.

Our server was exceptional and made the dining experience very special. The acoustics aren’t great and it seemed a bit over priced. But a lovely evening out just the same. Thank you

The service was wonderful. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. I had the mushrooms on toast and my husband had the kangaroo sliders to start. Both were delicious --- our server said we wouldn't be able to tell kangaroo from beef and she was right! Everything was freshly prepared and well-presented. The patio looked beautiful and I wish we could have sat outside, but sadly it was a cold night. We will be back, hopefully on a warmer night.

I really like your online reservation service.

Always enjoy coming with famiky and friends to dine and see the tide.

I had the duck spring rolls. Awesome.
The Squash bruschette. Not enough squash and the food kept falling off the bread. Suggest spice it up a bit and mash it so you get the full squash flavour.
Lobster roll. Not enough lobster.
Bacon was extra good but i dont think it went well with the lobster.

See you next time.
