This place has great food and great atmosphere. There isn't a lot of seating inside so you have to time it right..or otherwise not mind waiting in busy hours. They do have outside seating in warm weather though. They have great burgers and the breadsticks are delicious! Everything we have tried has been great. Next time I want to try... More

Owner: get control of your wait staff. My dinner companions paid for our supper and after which I visited the restroom and planned to leave a cash tip on the table as I left. We saw some other family members and chatted a bit before we passed our table at which I would leave the tip. Before we could get... More

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, good menu selection. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait to be seated, as it's small inside, but the wait is worthwhile. In the summer, outdoor dining is available.

We got a recommendation from some locals to check this place out and we are glad we did. You must have the breadsticks and the French onion soup. You won't be disappointed. Also, the service was amazing!!!!

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. Excellent! Go there to see photos of the local... More

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
