I like going here because you can enjoy a wonderful steak while watching your favourite sports channel.

We were in Port Hardy for 4 days - went to Sporty's 4 times. One of the visits the service was really bad. But 3/4 was amazing. Food is great.

Quaint restaurant located near the water. Service was good, food was fine considering the selection in the town. Has a good amount of basic pub food and relatively fair pricing. Would recommend if in the area.

Serves descent bar food, includes steak. Facing the sea front in downtown. A good place to enjoy sunset and dinner. Not a very busy place. Service is good. Recommended for dinner in Port Hardy. 3.5/5.0.

Thanks for the nice review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I want to mention that the place is not busy in the off season, but in the summer month it is hard to get a spot without a reservation.

Attended for a couple of hours with fellow crazy hockey parents. Atmosphere and service was great! Beer was cold tasty and reasonably priced. Great selection too.
