The second stop on my list was a little fancier than my first stop but I figured I would still review it. Port City Club is a restaurant located right on Lake Norman. The restaurant states that it is known for its, “classy yet casual atmosphere”. Those words are definitely true. Each table in the restaurant has a wonderful view of the lake. The perfect time to eat here would probably be right at sunset so you would be able to see the sunset on the lake. I think as the temperatures start to warm up the perfect seating would be on their outdoor patio.
The menu includes great steak, seafood and made from scratch pasta and bread. “Using only the best fresh ingredients including – upper 2/3 Choice Certified Angus Beef, Organic Chicken and Fresh line-caught Charleston seafood.” This place was fancy on the inside with custom designed furniture and fixtures. All of which made the place look fabulous. I thought it would be the perfect wedding venue. I mean just look at it….
One thing that I liked about their menu was the way they categorized each item. The menu was so simple and classic yet elegant. There were no pictures which I think would have been nice but because the restaurant is so classy that I think pictures would detract from the restaurants value.

The menu item that I tried was called Carbonara. It says that it is,”black pepper linguini, pancetta, white wine, cream, shaved Parmesan, gulf shrimp, and peas.” With the pasta I also got the choice of a salad: House Salad or Caesar Salad. I chose the Caesar Salad. Here is a picture of the pasta and the salad I got. The pasta looked so ornamental when I got it.
Overall I loved the food and the restaurant was so so classy. I would rate this restaurant a 4.75 out of 5. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant as soon as I get money that is.
