We were going to eat downtown but the crowds and waiting time made us look elsewhere. We tried the Portside just 1 1/2 miles up the road. One of the best meals we have had on our trip! Sat right by the window with a view of the sailboats moored at the dock. Had their well known clam chowder that... More

We had tried many fish dinners during our days in Bayfield, but none came close to the Portside. Their walleye dinner was cooked perfectly. We'll be back.

Perfection, and a Chef that knows what he is doing. I look forward to two things, an Old Fashion from the bar, and the Superior Sirloin dinner entre, drive 840 miles each year, just for this. Getting hungry thinking about it!

The view at Portside is spectacular. There is nothing like dining with an expansive view of Lake Superior. The menu is a bit supperclubbish, which if that is what you are looking for, is fabulous. The portions are enormous. The price is what you'd expect for a nicer dining option with a lot of steak and fish choices. During our... More

If you like steak, do not pass up the center cut filet with the red wine demi...hands down the finest steak you'll find in the greater Bayfield area! Great views, great food, great service, great atmosphere. Portside should be on everyone's 'must do' list when visiting the area.

We stopped at the Portside Restaurant in July, 2013 for dinner. The restaurant is well-visited , maybe because it's the only game in town. My husband ordered a baked potato and a bowl of chowder. The baked potato was dry and the chowder tasted like it came out of a can. I ordered the Oriental Chicken Salad - a total... More

I am leery when someone says they have an award winning anything. But, I could understand that about the salad. Very good! My wife had the trout and liked it. I had the whitefish and baked potato. The whitefish was good but the potato was overcooked. The view of the marina can't be beat and the meal would have been... More

I had the black tiger shrimp and it was wonderful! We asked for a window seat and the view is great. It is in Superior Marina so we saw all the sailboats go in and out of the marina! The waitress was very friendly as was the gentlemen in the bar area. We also had dessert and it was worth... More

We always have dinner one night at Portside when we visit Bayfield. Love the location with a great view of the marina.
