Seafood fettuccine was excellent. The fish and chips were also very good. Service was good and waitress was friendly.

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.

I ate here twice and had an excellent meal each time. The place is a Sports bar and there are games being televised but, if that's not your thing, it's not intrusive. The first time we were there it was Sunday and fairly quiet. The...More

Sporty's is a pretty standard west coast style pub restaurant, with just a bit of Port Hardy's ruggedness. The menu has a good amount of choice without overwhelming you with options, and the specials are always tempting. In the summer it can be very busy;...More

This is an ok place to eat. Just a basic place, but the food is good and the staff are friendly. The sockeye salmon cooked in parchment was delicious.
