We stayed at the Hotel, and looking at the menu, I was looking forward to a certain meal. When we got to the restaurant, the menu was very limited, and much more expensive. We just got up and left.More

Thanks Stahr A, for your great review. The cioppino has been a popular dish here at the Portneuf for some time. I myself have often fought the urge to drink the broth straight from the bowl.

We had a wonderful meal. I had the pork chop and my sister had the Salisbury Steak. The fried kale I had with my pork chop was amazing.

Very good food and an excellent bar. While quaint and little, the food could hold its weight against any metropolitan restaurant. The filet mignon was very good.

I do not know. We were only there for a single day. We bought alcohol in town and enjoyed the beer recommended by the bar tender. I couldn't tell you what we drank because the avocado was simply delicious!
