Fish was cooked perfect, great taste, with small container of dipping sauce. fries crispy, and veggies almost stir-fried texture... read 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.

We dined in the bar at the Portside on a weekday in November, and it was quite good. The service was good, and the food was excellent. I had a fresh caught Dungeness Crab Louie, and it was the best I've ever had. Crab season was open and active, and the Charleston fishing fleet was bringing in lots of fresh... More

My friends took my family and I to the Portside when we visited and we were definitely not disappointed. Our waitress, Tara, was very helpful and knowledgable about the menu and even directed us to a few wines we may not have otherwise have tried. The ling cod was cooked to perfection and tasted exactly like what we were told..."whole... More

I stayed at the Plainview Motel and this resturant is very close. When the weather is good sit outside and overlook the slough. The seafood is always good as is the service. I miss the buffet they used to have.

We had reservations for our large group and just prior to our arrival another large group were seated. The restaurant owner or manager was a real jerk yelling at the cooks and the wait staff. We didn't have a problem waiting at all but we did have a problem with the food and the owner.
