There is something about The Portside which seems to shout "DFI" from offshore. The restaurant has an excellent physical layout, and sweeping views of the estuary. The menu is well conceived, and the selection of wines is good. And yet ... and yet ... something...More

We called in by chance, and had an excellent lunch - indeed the gumbo provided me with dinner (and breakfast as well!). My wife had the fish and chips - a generous portion too, and accompanied by chowder. Most of the less positive reviews here...More

After an afternoon riding 4 wheelers over the dunes nearby we drove over to Charleston to Portside restaurant and were glad we did. The restaurant sits right on the harbor and overlooks many fishing boats. The views were great although the decor was dated in...More
