Port O' Three was a Michigan restaurant owned by the Chin family of Chin Tiki fame. I also read here on TC that it was very short-lived.

That's all I know. Hopefully someone else can shed a little more light on its history.

I have a matchbook and an ashtray from Port O' Three. You can see that they used Chin Tiki's logo tiki on the back of the matchbook.

I have that matchbook, nice ashtray.

I never noticed on the back of the matchbook that the restaurant was opened by Marvin Chin - the founder of Chin Tiki!

He had another restaurant called Chin's in Livonia, which opened in 1955, and is still open today (see post below)
