Very nice but not spectacular

We had a very nice meal. Beautiful setting and excellent service, but whoever said high end $$$$ certainly hasn't been to The Wild Rice just down the road. The food was very enjoyable.

Had dinner there, it was lovely. Your view is the marina and if you have a dog, you can sit on the patio. Dropped about 90$ on two people, including cocktails and dessert. The duck was amazing, and the service was excellent.

The restaurant has a great view of the marina and Lake Superior and Madeline Island beyond. We ate out on the deck, it was a beautiful evening with a nice breeze off the lake. The only downfall of the deck, it that the hotel (which is connected by the deck) pool is just off the deck and I can see... More

Waited over an hour for a drink and longer for our first dish. Quality down, kitchen falling apart! Waitress was good thought.

Recently remodeled, clean and attractive not to mention the view of the marina at Port Superior, an excellent place for lunch. Food and wait staff excellent. My reason for less than excellent rating is becuase there did not appear to be any type of handicap access to the facility. Too bad this was not addressed in the remodeling....of course it... More

A perfect lunch spot. In the atmosphere, you'll be tempted to go for the fish & chips, but wait! Go for the blackened fish sandwich instead. Trust me.

Stopped in at the 'newly' revamped Portside after a long day driving. Sat at the bar and had the grilled shrimp and the Greek flatbread for appetizers. Very good - especially the shrimp. We'll be back for more.

We LOVE the Portside Bar and Restaurant. Food is excellent -- their award-winning maple vinaigrette and whitefish liver appetizers are excellent. Wonderful views...NEVER disappointed after 10 years! Bob and Sandy Hume

We had reservations and were seated within 5 minutes after arriving. It took a while to before someone came by to take our drink order and the bread didn't come out for about 15 minutes after that. I ordered pan seared scallops, trying to be a bit more healthy, and they arrived in a dish of melted butter. Needless to... More

Greeted by very friendly and personable staff who were eager to make the experience a great one. Started off enjoying drinks at the bar, delicious rum cider in the spirit of applefest and mouth watering bruchetta appetizer. Once their was a window table avaible we ordered dinner with the help of the attentive waitress. Beautiful views of the lake and... More
