This place is getting a bit of a facelift, I like it the way it was.. It is a good place to have a few beers and watch the ships go bye.

This is a lovely but somewhat dated area within San Pedro. We visited in February while renting a yacht via AirBnB in a berth nearby. There are multiple restaurants within the village and a few shops. In February, it seemed like not everything was open, so there might be more of a on/off-season that we weren't aware of. There is...

Great memories from my teen years. But this review is after we finished our 50-State Quest and made our only trip south in the Month of June ((2009 not 2016)). This was different from our normal vacations in that it was to see friends and eat at those places we have missed being here in Kelseyville. The Village has a... More

If you come from the flat Prairies with no water within miles, except a river here and there, you will undoubtedly like this Ports O' Call Village. The fishing boats, the "fishy" aroma, the wharfs, outdoor seating on the terrace, just that wonderful fresh air and all that water around you --- it may all be "run-down and decrepit" to... More

San Pedro is in general a complete dump and this place a sad excuse of a tourist attraction. Dirty and smelly and with many closed shops and restaurants. Absolutely nothing nice about it. Waste of time. Pretty much sums up the whole area of San Pedro.

You can't get fish any fresher than at Ports O Call. I love to sit in the restaurant and watch the fishing boats unload their catch on the dock while eating my super fresh fish. I've been going to Ports O Call for over 30 years. In the past 10 years or so, it's started looking a bit run down.... More

Many places closed, even around noon on Saturday. Might better in the late afternoon. Ok for just a walk around.

This is a comfortable place on a waterfront deck or inside dining by the picture windows. You can watch the ships sail in and out of the harbor, and sometimes see the seal who frequents the waters. Happy hour fare has been pared down in the last year or so, but you can get a burger or drinks for about... More

I recall visiting the Ports O' Call village as a child, and though rife with shops of tchotchke and cheesy souvenirs, I greatly enjoyed the atmosphere of the waterfront village and its quaint maritime theming. That was close to two decades ago, at this point. Upon our visit in December 2016, my wife - who had never seen the Village... More
