When viewed from the parking lot it doesn't appear to be the elegant restaurant that it really is, but check out the more classy entrance from the Patio with outside seating overlooking the central courtyard fountain. Once inside you are treated to a very nice Five Star Restaurant. We started by splitting the"Simply Southern Salad" which had a very tasty... More

Port Land Grille has a reputation for good food. I must say though, at our visit a few weeks ago, the food was below average. The tuna looked as if it had been frozen and was tasteless. There were four of us and no one's meal even measured up as being acceptable in taste and quality. Too bad. I will... More

I'm so sorry to read this! I hope you will take a moment to contact me directly (anne@portlandgrille.com) so I can learn more about your visit and make amends where possible. I can at least assure you with the abundance of fresh, local fish available to us we have no need to serve frozen tuna or any fish and never... More

We celebrated our son's 31 st Birthday. The only disappointment was the oysters on the half shell. The oysters were the smallest I ever seen. The rest of the meal was great. My son had the Porterhouse and I had the New York strip both very good. They did forget the dessert for my son which they promised when we... More

Lovely meal with my parents for their 48th wedding anniversary. Dad wanted steak and this is the place in town to go. Pickle fries as an appetizer are amazing:). Cowboy cut bone in ribeye was fab but my husbands coffee rubbed steak took home the best of table award! Service is top notch as expected, but they even sliced my... More

My family and I had a wonderful evening in the Port Land Grille. The menu is diverse and the food was excellent. Big portions. Try the Red Neck egg rolls as an appetizer.

So glad we found this place listed in a hotel guide book. We've been to Lumina Station several times and never noticed this restaurant because it's on the back side of the building. Our visit was delightful. Great service. Do ask questions of your server as portion sizes can be large. Our server suggested sharing a salad, which we did.... More

The atmosphere, food and service were all top notch. They accommodated moving our seating when sitting by a window was a little too cool for my lady. We enjoyed lamb and duck. Molten chocolate cake topped off a delicious meal on a very special night. Will be going back to celebrate more and new special occasions!

Kinda off the beaten path in a small shopping center. I had the rib eye. Large cut of beef, enough for 2. Wine selection excellent. Atmosphere, very intimate. I am always happy to see the manager out and about checking on tables. Great experience.

Recently went here with large group of 14, so not a typical night out. Located in Lumina Station, a mixed use shops and restaurants center. If you don't know the area, you might not find the restaurant right away since it is toward the back. The staff was all very nice, efficient and helpful. They clearly knew the menu very... More

I love this restaurant! The open feel and good acoustics make it fun to sit and visit. Very comfortable! There is also a bar area if you prefer that type of environment. We had oysters and shrimp for appetizers and both were very good. I had a beef tenderloin that was cooked to perfection! They were also willing to mix... More
