The Port Hotel Restaurant
If the walls of The Port Hotel could talk, they'd tell a tale dating back to 1902. In that year, John F. Thill tore down an existing hotel and tavern and constructed a brand-new one comprised of 40 guest rooms, which is four times the number you’ll find today. Thill installed electric lighting and warmed the rooms with steam heat—both luxurious features in those days. The hotel closed down in 1973, but the restaurant maintained a lively business.
The summer of 2005 saw the grand reopening of The Port Hotel, restored to its original state of elegance with 10 uniquely appointed guest rooms and chef-prepared breakfasts served in bed. Joseph Zankl and his family now operate this historic property, preserving its turn-of-the century charm while introducing modern amenities such as wireless Internet and plasma picture boxes. The Port Hotel Restaurant continues to serve up steaks, seafood, and other rib-sticking goodness in a stately dining room or on a breezy outdoor patio.
