Finger Lakes Summer

The kitchen of Ports Cafe

It’s the time of the year to make one last trip to close the cottage. Not much to look forward to on the drive east from Rochester, on a frosty Friday night, so we made reservations to stop for dinner while en route, at Ports Cafe, just south of Geneva on Seneca Lake.

Listening to the specials

Interior of Ports

Ports specializes in specials. They had almost as many specials as regular menu items, which we never even sampled. Our waitress was helpful and attentive. We start with appetizers and wine flights.

Wine flights allowed us to each sample 3 whites (local) and 3 reds. Some of the local wineries are Billsboro, Dr Frank, Glenora,  and William Hill.

Mussels in a delicious broth

Appetizers: Mussels in a garlic  white wine sauce. AWESOME.

Best swordfish I have ever had

Main Course:  Seafood kabobs:  shrimps scallops, swordfish, pineapple, red bell pepper, scallion with garlic and parsley butter and a  New York Strip with smashed potatoes. Both very good.

Doesn't this look great?

Dessert was a pecan bourbon creme brulee, which though very pretty, did not wow us. But, the ice wine was delicious.

Reviews in Yelp.

Reviews in Trip Advisor. Listed as the number 1 restaurant in Geneva, according to Trip Advisor.

This is a very nice affordable cafe with lots of variety. It is not on par with Moro’s Table in Auburn or Hazelnut Kitchen in Trumansburg, but it is charming friendly and we spent less than $100. with all the trimmings.

Ports is located at 4432 West Lake Road, Route 14, Geneva, NY  14456, 315-789-2020.
