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 the calories! They do take reservations and we went at 5 because we were going to the Big Top show, but would not have needed reservations.

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

Dinner was very good -- we goth had a seafood choices & were very happy with the scallops and shrimp. The service was good, but could have been more attentive (which would have made the rating a "5"). The server missed an opportunity to upsell another round of cocktails that we probably would have accepted. On the positive side, we were early for our reservation and were given an incredible table with a great view of the marina and bay. There are several good choices for nice dinners in the Bayfield area. We would definitley choose Portside again.

Stopped here late one night for dinner. We ended up being there an hour past their closing time, but didn't notice any nasty glares.

Ribeye was delicious. Clam Chowder was good, but not Boston-good. They claim their dinner salad is award-winning, and I can't argue that. It was very good.

I don't recall if they had a kid's menu, but I do remember that prices were pretty high.

View of the harbor is nice.

My wife and I highly recommend Portside for quality dining at reasonable prices. We live and work in Bayfield and have dined at Portside many times. The quality of the food has been excellent with no exceptions. Plus we refer many of the guests who stay at our cottages to Portside and they report a very high satisfaction rate. We encourage our guests to ask for a window seat in order to take in the view of the marina as well as Madeline Island and the inlet to Chequamegon Bay.
