Best Steaks and Burgers in the Quarter
We last ate at Port of Call on August 1, 2008. We ordered a Filet Mignon to split. It came with a nice salad with Italian Dressing, two fresh buns, a potato with just butter ( as we requested) and a filet, perfectly done as we ask - medium rare.

We have been coming here for the past two years, and always sit at the bar. Its an eclectic bar for sure, but don't let ancient mariner memorabilia, and dark environs scare you. The place is a gem. The staff have been there for years, and are as much of a reason to go as any. These people treat us like family after being here just a few times. The burgers are great, and the potatoes can be anything you want, as they have more ingredients than you can imagine.
We only order the same drinks, so I cant comment on the Monsoons, etc.. But the traffic for them is great. The clientele are locals and tourists - no riff raff. With the turnover nightly, they run a clean ship.
We came from San Francisco, and spend a good amount of time here. These are the best burgers we have ever had, and the best steaks for both size and price.
If you want to enjoy it for the first time, get there when they open, and choose a spot to enjoy both the food, and the other people enjoying the food. It can be quite busy at times, but keep in mind that the food and drink are worth waiting for!
