Great menu, great service, nice cozy atmosphere. Although it is a small space, they do a great job in moving things along. Diverse menu- the baked whitefish is very good.

The Portside is a Marquette institution. My best friend and I were both in Marquette for most of September (we are misplaced Yoopers) and were able to have a great lunch on their deck. Service was excellent and so was the food, per usual.

Enjoyed the food, beer and service at this friendly small venue. It was New Year's Eve and crowded, but they found seating for our large party.

Went here while passing thru Marquette based on other reviews and the fact it's open later than most places in the area. Service was outstanding, food was excellent, everything was impeccably clean, and the prices were reasonable considering the giant portions. I ordered the Chicago style beef sandwich and it was spicy and delicious. Would definitely recommend. They also serve... More

I ordered a french dip sandwich. The atmosphere is warm an cozy. I didn't have to wait for a place at a bar. One could tell that this is a well attended establishment, favored by the local community. The food was good and the service friendly. The bar was very busy, but the server stopped by several times to check... More

Called first thing December 1st and told they were booked. I explained the situation to the manager and she said our party of 11 would be too big. I... More

It had been a few years since we dined at the Portside so we decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. We did wait about 10 minutes for a table but that was fine. We sat at the bar and had a couple of nice cold craft beers while waiting. My dining partner had a burger which was... More

Portside Inn makes the best breadsticks and cheese dip. A must when you visit Marquette. One of Marquette's older establishments with wood interior. Great atmosphere.
