We enjoy 151 lunches. Their fare is simple with a wide selection of sandwiches, several salads and good specials. Local crowd with many regulars because of the friendly but quiet atmosphere. Food has always been plentiful, well prepared and reasonable. Friendly service. Also open for dinner, but we haven't tried that yet. It's on our regular circuit for lunch!

The port has never let me down. Pat and his staff have always delivered. Fried seafood is my favorite and they have the best side salad around. The bartenders are always friendly and on the ball. I just wish I could get by there more often. Thanks for all the good times!!!!

This is a nice bar and grill, good atmosphere, good prices and good food, after trying the crab balls that were loaded with meat, I'd really like to try the crab cakes. The grilled tuna was nice but a touch dry. I think focusing on the local fish or steamed might be a good idea. Food and a drink for... More

Waitress was more interested in flirting with a guy at the bar than serving us, being her only table this was frustrating. Flounder was bland and the tuna a bit dry, otherwise decent food.

We went in on a Friday for the "All You Can Eat Steamed Shrimp". OMG!! I don't like shrimp, but I ate at least 3 baskets myself! They were AWESOME!! We even had the chef make some more to keep the table full and going. Our waitress was sweet, speedy, and very nice. The food came out quickly, and well... More

Ordered the black & blue blackened tuna, specified very rare - ie, tail still flapping. Got non blackened tuna medium rare. Was told another was being prepared. Twenty minutes later, no fish. Finally told them to cancel my order. If my husband hadn't ordered all you can eat shrimp I would have walked out. His second batch of shrimp took... More
