Happy Birthday Sean!!

The Pub & Grub menu at Terrazzo Grill is one of my favorite menus because of this tasty dish. 

This is “Steak Nachos” piled high with everything possible for only $14.00. 

This dish is so large I shared it with 5 other people and still have left overs.  The Pub & Grub menu is offered on the weekends which pairs nicely with the 6 flat screen TV’s in the restaurant to watch your favorite team.  They are serving until 9:00 tonight… come on down!


Portofino Island Concierge wishes you a safe and happy Halloween.

Dolphins anyone?

We had a great trip on the dolphin cruise today! The weather was warm, but it didn’t take long for the wind to find its way through the boat and for dolphins to put on a show.  We barely left Portofino when they started cruising along beside us. Thanks to everyone who came out.  Here are  a few pictures from today.
