Using TripAdvisor we were trying to find a place to eat and everything was closed...we stumbled upon this place. The place is quite nice and they have a lovely patio (was too cold to sit out). The service was great and the good was delicious. So glad we stumbled upon it!

I said I wouldn't return but was overruled by friendly consensus. I am critical because this could be a really good restaurant and we don't have many in our area. Again, food and presentation was good. Service was not. Between 2 People we made 3 different selections on the menu that were not available. Not acceptable. Kind of like the... More

Friendly and cozy, good service and interesting food. We opted for the combo of 3 appetizers for $30, and a couple bowls of soup. I tried a beer from Bath, and another from Napanee, both were good. Woodland snails, crab stuffed mushrooms and fish tacos; snails and mushrooms very good, but the tacos were a bit bland. A good meal... More

I've now visited The Port Bistro Pub several times and find it a refreshing experience. Its a real gem and the ambience, food, and staff make this place a must stop destination if you ever find yourself in Quinte West. Lots of parking nearby, waterfront towards the back of the restaurant. Easily accessible. Clean and on trend with modern fixtures.... More

What a great spot to have a quick lunch. Staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable and the location is wonderful, price was a little high, but you have to pay for quality and that is what you will get. I would definitely return.

Been wanting to try this place for a long time. Finally got there. Nice microbrewery beer selection. Great apps and salads. Overall a nice menu. Everyone enjoyed their food. Our server April (Aubrey) was the best! If, like me, you're tired of the big chains. Give this place a try.

The ambiance of the place is soo different from places, where you cannot even see what you eat. This pub has high ceilings, beautiful windows on each side. Very clean. Even the floors are clean. Attention to detail. Attention to food. Will come again.

First visit. The food was good and well prepared. Service was fair. For not being very busy could have been better. Although auto gratuity for a family of 6 is insulting. You got your 18% and I will not return. Pro tip I usually tip 20 and I would have returned.

Justa Our POS system picks up there are 6 people in a group and defaults to the 18.5% gratuity. The system cannot tell if there are 6 adults or 6 kids in the group, just 6 servings ordered. The policy is plainly marked on the menu and the server probably told you when the bill was brought over as well.... More

Description
Situated in the heart of Trenton, The Port Bistro Pub is located in a beautifully restored historical building overlooking the Trent waterway. In the summer season, there is a spacious patio where you can watch the boats pass. Inside we feature the work of local artists & live music on Friday nights. The Port features a menu of gourmet comfort foods made from the very best quality, local products. Everything is made in house including hand-cut frites, desserts, and all sauces and dressings. The menu changes seasonally. We are proud of our unique beer list featuring local, regional and international brews, a comprehensive wine list and a great selection of cocktails and martinis. Additionally, we offer warm, friendly customer service and a fun unpretentious atmosphere that is uniquely ours. We strive to go above and beyond our patron's expectations and make The Port something the community can be proud of. This is partially achieved through our Green Initiatives and by highlighting the area's finest produce, meat, beer and wine.The Port opened July 14th 2011, with new owners acquiring it on August 1st 2014. The Port is locally owned and operated. We invite you to join us for some shared plates with friends, a full course meal or just a drink on the patio.
