Slow but very accommodating

Host/manager didn't have an open five top so he seated my parents at a two seater booth and me and my sisters sat at a table. Slightly older waitress was very kind/helpful but slow. It was a very busy night though! I had the fish fry special. Soup was French onion which was awesome. Onion rings... read more

I got to the restaurant just 10 minutes before closing, but was welcomed in. A few tables were still occupied. I debated about ordering the whitefish and the filet, but chose the fish, taking the servers suggestion. I am glad, the fish was outstanding. Not just fresh, but a nice sized portion that had enough thickness to ensure it would... More

Got there just in time, the place was packed, we follow the crowds for food and beverages, and The Portside is just our kind of place!! Fast, fresh, friendly and happy, and that's JUST the staff! We had a GREAT meal...have NO problem telling EVERYONE where to go, as long as they wind up at The Portside!

Each time we wander up to Marquette we make sure we can stop at the Portside for lunch or dinner. The service this past weekend was fantastic, the fish fry great and the atmosphere is unique in that it is a tiny place filled with the "atmosphere of Lake Superior". The breadsticks for fantastic and I'm not a breadstick lover.... More

Must be a great local hot spot because there was a wait list on a Thursday night. Lively place with great staff, food and drinks! Patio dining available. Shrimp and Crab salad is a good size and very fresh. Very nautical decor.

We are spending one night in Marquette and chose this place based on reviews. There was a 20 minute wait so we sat at the bar and ended up eating there. My husband had the whitefish and the piece was huge and delicious! I had the beef tenderloin with extra veggies and the meat was tender and delicious, and the... More

This is a place where the locals go, so you know it has good food. We really liked the smoked whitefish spread and whitefish cake. We sat outside on the deck. Fantastic server, fun.

We stopped there late afternoon and had cocktails on the patio. Breadsticks are ridiculously good. Cream of mushroom soup was delicious. Our server could not have been any nicer. Wish we knew her name! Blonde and petite and super friendly. Thank you for a great vibe and a chill spot.
