Fodor's Review

Every night, no matter the weather, people wait for more than an hour outside Port of Call for fist-thick burgers made from freshly ground beef, served with always fluffy baked potatoes (there are no fries here). For the definitive experience, drink a Neptune's Monsoon (Port of Call's mind-bending take on the Hurricane) while you wait, and order your potato "loaded" (with mushrooms, cheddar cheese, sour cream, butter, chives, and bacon bits). A juicy filet mignon is also available. In the afternoon and early evening, it's a fun stop for kids. Port of Call is open until midnight from Sunday through Thursday and 1 am on Friday and Saturday.

The BEST burger ever!

You MUST make a stop at the awesome local hangout. It's a dive, but the burgers (served with a loaded baked potato - not fries) are the best I've ever had! Try the Neptune's Monsoon to wash it all down! Beware, they only accept cash and American Express.
