Pepper Jack Burger - the best burger

Back in Marquette again, I stopped at the Portside Inn, my favorite place in Marquette. The Pepper Jack Burger was amazing. I uploaded a photo so check it out.

I really like this place. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the conversation with the friendly bartender. The food was great and the breadsticks were awesome. Sometimes the atmosphere is what sells a place and this one was fun and comfortable. One of my favorites in Marquette.

French onion soup was very good. Servings were very sizable -- my husband even had leftovers to-go and that NEVER happens!! basic pub menu, but all four of us enjoyed our meal. Nice atmosphere -- music wasn't too loud. Waitress was a little ditzy, but she was very nice and very helpful with our questions.

Portside is small in size but big on service. Their drinks are good, the French Onion soup is the best in town, pizza and breadsticks are not to be missed items, and their incredible whitefish cake is amazing -- their local take on a crab cake but using locally caught whitefish.

The Portside has been good bar food for a very long time. Not fine dining but always good. Sometimes very busy but seldom a long wait, enjoy

Girlfriend took me here as she stops on every Marquette trip. Breadsticks are well just amazing and we had a ton of small plates that we rather enjoyed. We didn't eat any main courses but my girlfriend says they are as good as the other stuff we ate. Plus it's just a really cool place inside. Will be going back... More

If your looking for good pizza head on over to Portside. If you want the insiders favorite, They have breadsticks that are out of this world. Everyone tries to imitate their garlic spread!

Is fabulous, and their fish on Fridays can't be beat. With a nice outdoor patio for those rare summer evenings when the weather is perfect and you want to raise a glass with friends.

Always a good time and good meal at the Portside. A Marquette staple and a great local place visitors should check out! Always have to wait for a seat so be prepared for a drink before hand!
