Nicer restaurant, water view.

Went for happy hour and got a good deal on food. Burger, fish & chips and more offerings got 5 bucks or less. Sounds like they have an inventive chef as dishes were described by our waitstaff. The restaurant could use a facelift, but food & service were good.

Had a very quiet and nice dinner. Oyster Rockefeller fried crab legs fresh percale sole. Our waitress Carrie was ver attentive. Gave us good suggestions. Restaurant is older and could use a clean up.

The music the food and the atmosphere was wonderful but the service was slowww and the time it took to get our order was even slower. There were very few people in restaurant and lounge. We chose to set in the lounge to take in the live music, I don't know if that's what slowed the service in hopes we... More

After reading all the reviews, which were all over the chart, we went to the Portside last night for a Great Meal. I had Blackened Ling Cod with fries and veggies. Fish was cooked perfect, great taste, with small container of dipping sauce. fries crispy, and veggies almost stir-fried texture, wonderful!!!. Wife had Grilled Salmon, again cooked perfect, baked potato... More

We had reservations and were 5 minutes early. We waited for 10 minutes while the owner seated two small groups before us that arrived after us. When we were finally seated, I was amazed to see that about half of the tables were empty. We sat there for 10 minutes before we were given a menu. After another 15 minutes... More

Our first time in Charleston in a long while. We just picked this because I wanted to see a nice view. We were here for lunch, it wasn't busy but there were a few people at the bar area. The waitress was very friendly & they had a great selection of food. I had been eating way too much on... More

Hadn't been to the Portside in Charleston, Oregon for quite some time so decided to go out for dinner there. I can remember that you need to have reservations so I called and made them for 6pm with a window seat. We got there and was surprised to see that there were only about 20 patrons between the restaurant and... More

I thought the food was good. The prices were reasonable and you received a good amount. Would like to see the restaurant be updated and if that is not possible then I feel it does need a good cleaning through out.
