Portside has lost it's luster a little bit over the years (still really good) but the sushi place located in the NW corner of the building is excellent. I didn't get a chance to try their sashimi but the three different sushi rolls we ordered were fresh and tasty with excellent presentation.

We ate here recently. Sat by the bay and watched families clamming. I had scallops in cream sauce. They were different from the preparation of most scallop dishes. My husband had breaded fried crab legs. The crab breading was too thick and covered up the taste of the crab. The scallops lacked a good glaze which would have improved combination... More

Slightly dated, but nice, classic seafood restaurant with big window views of the harbor. Candlelit table in the evening. About a 10-15 minute drive from Hwy 101 hotel. Went for seafood around 8pm (oddly many restaurants were closed by 8pm on Saturday in this area), pleased with what we ordered and received. Staff was very friendly, especially our waitress who...

So delicious! Fresh food, good service, wonderful views. I definitely would recommend. We had the seafood pasta, scallop and prawn Cajun pasta, and Cajun blackened halibut. All of it tasty. Nothing remained.

Fresh seafood. Little spendy but worth it. Seafood pasta is the best. Has a lil of everything in it. Cant think of anything bad ive ate here. Service was very good. And the view wasnt bad. Worth the trip.

The food quality has gone down a bit over the last couple of years. It is really good or it has been pretty bad. Good location on the bay and watching the people clamming is always good entertainment.

Silver, the food artist who prepares the sushi, was very engaging and made four or five different platters of various types of sushi for us to try. Some of the best sushi I've eaten. Absolutely a great place to go. Enjoy

We were visiting Coos Bay and staying on a walking distance Marina RV park. This restaurant and The High Tide were recommended. We ate outside as our German Shepherd accompanied us. Our server was excellent and was fearful of our dog but graciously served us over the white picket fence! The clams were fresh with quite a bit of batter... More

We have eaten here several times and the food is always ok. Nothing really stands out as excellent though. The inside really needs updating and a good cleaning too.
