Portside is a constant whenever we visit "South County". I had every intention of ordering Cajun swordfish when we decided to eat here. I had seen a photo on Facebook which was awesome! But Dad decided on fisherman's platter and my resolve vanished. I, too, ordered it. But this dish is never a disappointment. We ordered clam cakes and white... More

Lobster bisque tastes like mothballs. Ordered whole,belly clams, not seasoned at all. Bit into one and got a huge piece of shell and several small pieces of shell. Waitress states that that is how you tell,it's a fresh clam? really? So I guess every time I order whole belly clams I should expect to get shell jammed into my gums?... More

This has been a favorite restaurant of ours for years. The biggest problem is choosing what to have as the chowder, clam cakes, fries, meatball sandwiches, fish sandwiches, steak sandwiches, clam rolls and everything else is always delicious.

Having grown up on Cape Cod and worked in local seafood restaurants, I should know better than to stop at any such place near a ferry landing. BUT, we were hungry upon our return from Block Island and made the HUGE mistake of eating at this miserable excuse for an eatery. My bad... We ordered two chowders, a fish sandwich,... More

The food was ordinary and the service fine. The raw little necks were not as fresh as others we had during our stay. I had a lobster roll. It was fine, but I had one twice the size another day.

We Googled Jimmy's before deciding on where to have lunch. With so many great reviews we figured we couldn't go wrong. When we entered the dining room on a Saturday at lunch time and it was empty we should have known enough to walk out. There are three chowder choices on the menu; white, clear, and red. We decided on... More

We had been going to Portside since I was a little girl. Yesterday was my last time there. The white clam chowder was very watery and the clam cakes were tasteless & doughy . The fried clams were OK. For the prices, we'll be going to Iggy's from now on. Very disappointed!

I just read the last review and it sounded like we ate at two different restaurants! Dad (age 92) and I went Saturday night after the 4th (July 6th) and it was fabulous. We both ordered the fisherman's platter. Knowing how large it is, we purposely did not order chowder which is delicious. New tables and chairs, fresh paint and... More

Just returned from an 'experience' from this place. We went here due to Trip Advisor reviews and Jim's Dock (where we had planned on eating) had a 2 hour wait. Just went to Mariner Grill, Monihan's Clam Shack and Matunuck Oyster Farm on this vacation and had wonderful meals...but wanted to try something new. It's Friday on 4th of July... More
