portofinos, sunset grill are gone. The property was purchased and the building is being demolished to build a mega resort.

Portofinos (or Sunset Grill) really not worth a visit. The name change seems to be an attempt to give the impression that it's a different restaurant, but it's not and retains the same owner and management. They were recently shut down until they cleaned up...More

This restaurant is right on Charlotte Harbor, so views are outstanding. The service is good and food is decent. There is a large bar area with tv's set up for sports activities. Parking is tight at the restaurant, but there is a large lot directly...More
