The steak was excellent. Cooked to perfection and served promptly. I am picky about steak and this is one of the best places to get good steak in the area. Fresh sides and good atmosphere.

Great service. Wait staff was courteous and attentive without interruption. I had the bacon wrapped trout with rice and a bowl of the crab bisque. All were delicious. The others at the table had steaks and one had the crab cakes whick looked awesome. I'm from Texas so I didn't get steak as it's much easier to get steak in... More

visited Port City Chop House for a special time this past weekend BUT was disappointed in the food and cost. Called ahead and let them know it was a birthday event. The atmosphere was more like a low end restaurant, slow wait time but the young girl was great after she contacted us. The cost of our steak was top... More

They are always great- service, food, atmosphere, everything. Their specials are to die for, if they are running a food special- get it! You can always go back and try the item on the menu you were contemplating. Also, check them out for lunch! The prices are lower and they have some great lunch features! Their food is consistently great!... More

If you are looking for that classic steakhouse feel, then go to Port City! We were there with a fairly large group for a business dinner. I had the filet with lobster tail and a wedge salad. Everything tasted great! I left so full and did not even have dessert. Great service and atmosphere. Yum!

Best chopped salad anywhere I've ever had. Top it with steak, chicken, salmon, or fresh tuna. Can't be beat.

While in Wilmington on business and staying at Wrightsville Beach decided to eat close by my hotel and decided to walk over to Port City Chop House. Wow, did I make a great choice! After being seated and ordering a dirty martini - gin of course - I opted for seafood instead of a steak. Started with a half dozen... More

Worth every penny. The best steak I've ever had, it just melted in my mouth! Definitely upgrade your steak to Oscar style--with crabmeat and asparagus on top. DELICIOUS. The crab dip is perfection, but the fried calamari leaves little to be desired. Nice, quiet atmosphere. Also great for meetings as they have a large party room that is easily closed... More

We've been to the Port City Chop House twice now. It's just a mile or two from the bridge into Wrightsville Beach, and inside, the decor is something between that of a casual, friendly pub and a NY-style steakhouse. The atmosphere is busy but not too loud, and thankfully, the tables are spaced well apart so you don't feel on... More
