Decent, un-breaded, lightly sauced wings. A nice historic-feeling pub with a good atmosphere and great staff.

“The wings were average but the restaurant is a great location for friends to gather for good times.”

“I didn’t enjoy these wings very much. They were hardly sauced, very dry, and the meat was poorly cut and the wings had unpleasant nubs and bits to chew around. Also, when we arrived, we were told they only had 11lbs of wings, so not everyone was able to order the meal they wanted to. That being said, they held their warmth well. The last wing I ate was still plenty warm. Also, it’s a fun place to go. The atmosphere and staff there always tend to be good.”

“The hot wings weren’t particularly hot and lacked my preferred level of sauciness, but there’s something really charming about the Ports that makes me wish I was a regular.”

“The wings are decent, but there’s nothing about them that sets them apart. I think I liked the venue itself more than the wings. It has a nice old-school vibe that was conducive to the usual wing night frivolities. I also applaud the use of transparent ketchup and mustard containers.”

“The wings were good! I’ve only ever drank at this tavern, but now that I know the food is good – I’ll probably pop by for a decently priced pound of wings. I liked that they came with fries and that the fries were good. Lemon Garlic Greek was good – lemony with garlic and greek seasoning salt. Don’t worry Olive haters, no green or black devils here ;)”
