Dined at the Port House Grill both days we were in North East. Enjoyed the first time so we hit it again! Thoroughly enjoyed the food, it was fresh made and not sitting under a heat lamp in the back somewhere. Staff was friendly and polite. Restaurant was clean.

Based upon the reviews we tried this cute little spot. Not thrilled with the order at the counter and wait for delivery. Crab soup was okay but crab in soup was sparse. I tried the two crab cake platter and found that there was nice crab with little filler as advertised, however the cakes were so over cooked and dried... More

Stopped here after hiking over at the Elk Neck State Park. Very good food! The prices aren't too bad. The servings were big and very filling. My wife had the crab cake sandwich and I had the mushroom and swiss filet mignon. Both were tasty and very filling. I'd recommend this to my friends.

You order at the counter and your food is brought to your table. My wife and I love the portobello sandwich - a full cap is topped with a variety of veggies and cheese that meld together into a scrumptious bite. The freshly made french fries (like beach fries) are some of the best I've had. Other dishes we have... More

Went here on a whim after reading the menu online. VERY impressed with our experience. The food is fresh, has great flavor and is absolutely delicious! Pleasantly surprised after seeing how small the location is. We had the crab cake sandwich with potato salad, filled with crab meat and true to the "no fillers" listed on the menu and the... More

Have been wanting to stop in here for a while and had some extra time today over lunch. The place is clean and inviting. I had the crab bisque, some homemade potatoe salad and a beer. The soup and potatoe salad was delicious. Will definitely be back.

If you're in this town, you need to get crab cakes here. They are really good, very little filler, just delicious. We had grilled veggies that were very good and a deliciously fresh salad. The restaurant has a good location in downtown North East. It's locally owned, always a plus in my book. The owner came over and spoke with... More

We stopped in at The Port House Grill on a recommendation from my brother who lives in the North East area. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in a great location. The food was excellent: islander salad with a crab cake, ahi sandwich, and probably the best part, french fries. Kelly is very friendly server and made us feel... More

Been here a couple of times now, and finally tried their crab cake, preceded by their Islander salad. EXCELLENT! The rest of their lineup is also superb. The burgers are huge and huge with flavor, but the only bargain on the menu. Yes, it's a little pricey overall, so it's not a great value. The help is very kind. The... More

Supper was crab cakes, salad & fries. Hubby ordered a cup of clam chowder which he said was excellent. Had a glitch in getting the salad and we were almost done eating before it came. Service could have been better but the food was good. It did seem a bit pricey for a place that takes your order at a... More
