Pan-Seared Scallops

I had a great experience here on Sunday 6/21. I had a reservation for two and my date was late but the sever did a great job and was patient, I done usually eat seafood but I wanted to give it a go and when I asked her for her suggestion she offered up some good knowledge, I even asked to have the muscle suave used on the scallop instead of the maple sauce and the chef was happy to accommodate, he even came out to ask how it was himself! I appreciate the good experience and I definitely will be back for more! Y'all made my date and I feel welcome and taken care of and the staff we interacted with were friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience.

Coconut-Crusted Shrimp

The coconut-crusted shrimp is the best. Recommend to combine that with the Caesar salad and your favorite alcoholic beverage for the best meal ever with a pleasant view and atmosphere.

These wings are the best around! Perfect amount of buffalo sauce and just the right crisp. Any of their cold beverages pair nicely :)

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Never would have tried this without the suggestion from the chef. Wow these were amazing. We ate all of them.. Hard to believe that if you close your eyes you would think you were eating buffalo chicken.

Sesame Tuna*

We absolutely loved the tuna and all the fixings that came with this dish. Everything is fresh and home made. The wasbi and ginger is my favorite part. I eat everything on this plate. The slaw is delicious!:

Pepper Crusted Sword Fish

The swordfish was cooked Perfectly! Great size portion. Loved the rice pilaf and roasted green beans. The salad bar had tons of toppings; more than I imagined! Toppings you normally would not find elsewhere; beets, bean salad. Everything looked fresh! We will Definitely be back! The food and outdoor & indoor atmosphere was perfect! Also great size bar area!

Pan-Seared Scallops

My family's 1st meal out (other than takeout) since the lockdown. Shockingly large number of sea scallops on the plate, so much that my wife had to share. We both agreed they were absolutely delicious. I had the lobster roll which was also fantastic. Thankfully light on the mayo. Onion rings hit the spot. Our server (May?) was extremely pleasant and patient (took us a while to make decisions). Will be back for sure.

Lobster Roll

First meal out in 100 days! And it was perfect! Lobster roll was just right, not too much mayo, just enough seasoning! Extra local burger was delicious and cooked to perfection! Outdoor seating over the river can't be beat. Thanks for making our first venture out an easy and enjoyable one!

Fish & Chips

First of all, the ambiance of Portside is beautiful! Everything is so perfectly decorated and modern, all while being incredibly comfortable and cozy. I was lucky enough to be seated next to the fireplace on a snowy day! I ordered the fish and chips which were perfectly crisp and the salad bar even came with it! A perfect New England meal. You can't go wrong with Portside!

Parmesan Encrusted Haddock

Posted on Google 3/3/2020. We were pleasantly surprised. We were served by Cathy - very fun loving and efficient. Food/drinks excellent. Portions large. Extensive salad bar. Service great. Received a free desert for the birthday girl. Nice view of Newburyport once the sailboats are moved to the river. Not too expensive. We plan to go back soon.
