On our first trip to northern Wisconsin, we wanted to try some local favorites. We ordered some Cheese Curds, Whitefish livers and Walleye Pike. The first two were appetizers, but were so big that they were more than a normal meal. The whitefish livers were...More

Portside has a completely new management team. The difference is striking. Everything looks spotless. The service was very good. More importantly the food was back to the way it was several years ago.

The view overlooking the sailboats in the marina is always soothing. The whitefish livers are a real delicacy. The menu is varied enough to have both bar apps or full meal. Food is good, the remodeled facility is very nice.
