Absolutely fantastic food here. Pub food can be hit or miss but this place really does it well. Felt bad for the poor man who was serving the entire restaurant while we were there but the food and the speed of service really made up...More

The Ports is a great venue for a casual event or drop-in after work. Great service on the taps, laid-back atmosphere, and good pub-grub too. Ample parking across the street at Olympic harbour. A bit like "Cheers", and that's a good thing. There's a reason...More

Visited this pub/restaurant/tavern on returning to Toronto from Ottawa. As we were touring about looking for a likely lunch time venue I saw this place on Trip Advisor. The food was first class and the burgers are awesome. Highly recommended.

I'm biased - I love the Ports! This is a landmark tavern which has miraculously escaped being updated. It's refreshingly old school. Here you will find families, couples, sports teams, students, professors - pretty much everyone from all walks of life - having a drink...More

opposite the entrance to Portsmouth marina parking lot. A nice pub, food is good and Chuck the barkeep will look after you. As far as the kid whining about prices, go up nearer Queens University and eat/drink at one of those dives.
