We visited Portside on a busy Saturday afternoon. Luckily secured a table for 6 immediately. No table service so you have to order drinks and food at the bar. This was a bit of an ordeal. The bartender was friendly, but no way could she...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
