This restaurant has had its ups and downs the last few years. We decided to give it one more try. We were very pleasantly surprised. The place was spotless, waitress pleasant and efficient, and the food was delicious.

Portside has a completely new management team. The difference is striking. Everything looks spotless. The service was very good. More importantly the food was back to the way it was several years ago.

The view overlooking the sailboats in the marina is always soothing. The whitefish livers are a real delicacy. The menu is varied enough to have both bar apps or full meal. Food is good, the remodeled facility is very nice.
