“A fun bar atmospher restaurant”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Rusty Porthole is a fun water-side bar / restaurant that is full of boaters and locals. Sometimes it can get a bit rowdy and loud and not necessarily appropriate for families, but mostly it's a fun place with good food.

“A Blast from the past and you will not leave hungry!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Visited Bethel Island for the first time in 40 years. Much had changed. We Chose Rusty's because of the bloody mary claim. Rusty's met the challenge. But Breakfast was excellent, large portions, many locals eating (a good sign). Nestled on the Levy off Frank's Tract in a Bethel Island sixties original a naughty pine interior! Took me back 40 years and the food quality and amount keep there. If you need breakfast on Bethel Island, Rusty Port hole is the place

“Fun Place With Great Food..”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

This nice little restaurant/bar is a must. You will have a great view of the wonderful delta and the service will make you feel so welcome. My wife and I sat at the bar and had outstanding service. The bartender takes your drink order and the food server will take your order for food. I thought this strange until the bartender explained she can keep up with all the drinks and the food won't be delayed. Outstanding!!! We had the chicken sandwich and the cheeseburger. They were both
cooked to order with the sides. It seems on the delta there is always something wrong with the food order, NOT HERE, they get it and they get it right. We came by boat and there is plenty of dock space. Band playing outside, TV's inside. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our ourselves. Great service, great food and great drinks. What a way to spend a few hours on the delta.

“REAL OLD TIME FUNKY DELTA DIGGS”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The Porthole have been around for years. We started eating there in the 80'ds. It has gone through many different owners with varying results with the food, some good some bad. The new operators are the best the place has seen in years. Try their Friday night special: Steak and Lobster for $ 20.00. It's well worth it.
