This year they changed things around to where even if you have a seat/table, where normally you would have someone serve you, you now have to wait in line with the boaters that are coming off the lake ordering take out. Can you imagine?? Like...More

Went here (aka Tiki Bar) for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. Both times were great! Everyone was friendly, food was great (love the wings) and the atmosphere is perfect for vacation! Can take boat or car to get there! Kids love the food too!...More

Good food, music, cold drinks and friendly staff. Just around the corner from Bedford Landings B&B. Nice place to go and wait for your Dare Boat Cruise just next door.

Happening little spot that has your basic necessities. Service was decent and so was the food. It was nice to watch the boats come in and out of this busy locale

Portside is a fun place to meet friends and enjoy bar food right on the water at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. The informal atmosphere and limited food choices are almost upstaged by the huge number of bass which hang around hoping for bits of food...More
