We had not gone to The Port for a few years because of the "old" menu. This menu is much better, the food excellent....we shared scallops and a filet. Rita had them divide it for us before bringing it to the table so that we...More

We went to the Port for drinks. The bartender was friendly and helpful with making our drinks. She was very generouse with the whisky when pouring my drink. Not sure how the food is. But the dinning room is very romantic.

Lori is the best bartender in Red Wing. And that's a high rating from a bartender down the street. The basement bar is a cool, historic, and classy spot to relax at the end of a long day!
