Not since High School lunch have I been offered canned corn. My fresh broiled fish was over cooked ( micro waved? ) and as tough as our tastless steak. Rib Eye? I think not.
The baked potatoe needed to be cooked longer, as it was as hard as the rest of the meal.
100% bad preparation and poor quality beef. Never return.

If you love scallops, this is the place to go! My friend and I each ordered scallops, and received TEN of them each!!! They were thick and juicy with such a great flavor. All four of us had the clam chowder which was outstanding. The two guys had fish fry (one had trout and the other had whitefish). They were both pleased with the meal. Great views, good service, excellent food. A must visit when in Bayfield!

We came for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is clean and neat. It could use some sound dampening and the musician, and the telephone and the bar blender sounds echoed through the dining room.

My Wisconsin Craft beer arrived with no head and in a Colorado Brewery glass. My wife enjoyed her specialty margarita made with local raspberries.

Salads were the highlight of the meal. Fresh and tasty. Our entrees were average, nothing spectacular. Mh wife had the stuffed whitefish special with crab and shrimp. The stuffing was the consistency of wallpaper paste and the dish was overpowered by the cheese sauce. It did not appear that any of the dishes had been seasoned. I had the Chicken Cordonblu which was edible and again, nothing spectacular. Our side of vegetables was overcooked and appeared to have been from a can.

With the other positive food reviews, we were very disappointed.

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.
