I recently dropped by The Port Steak and Seafood Restaurant on Lake Hatchineha in Haines City. This was a Polk restaurant I did not know about, so I was eager to dine there after hearing about it.

I discovered that the restaurant might be tricky to find at first, but once you pull up to the casual fine dining restaurant, you’ll understand the reason for its location. The main dining area offers a peaceful view of the… lake, and not many other Polk dining options offer a view like this one. The Port also offers screened patio seating set on the water that adds to the character of the restaurant.

As its name suggests, The Port specializes in steaks seasoned with a signature rub and grilled over an open flame as well as a wide selection of seafood including oysters and conch fritters. Of course there are other tasty chicken, burger, salad and dessert options to choose from also. For those dining during lunch, be sure to take a look at the “Early Bird” specials that are available daily through 6:00 p.m.
