Over priced and service was mediocre..

The food was amazing. Nothing bad on the menu. The price was right and the service was great. The only thing that wasn't great was the total lack of awareness that we're in the middle of a pandemic. The dining area inside looked like a covid fest. Sit outside and don't go in to use the toilet.

Drinks, soup, apps and entree's everything was A+++. We are picky when it comes to crabcakes and crab soup and this place was spot on!!!

We visited Portside on a hot August night. The outdoor seating was directing the sun. The food was good but not as advertised. The waterfront was nice to enjoy.

The crab cakes seemed a little small for the price but they were excellent, among the best I've had. I also had the clams casino and they were outstanding. I definitely recommend this place.

The service is great! The outdoor seating is spacious. The location on the water is nice. The food is just okay. The crab cakes are tasty, but smaller than most places.

Really humongous stuffed shrimp, felt like they didn't skimp on the crab meat. Shout out to their overworked servers during this pandemic, still managing to keep their happy demeanor in a hectic environment.

The outdoor seating on a Friday night was pretty good, with tents set up to keep the sun from beating down too hard. The staff kept things moving  and followed all current orders on social distance guidelines. The food wasn't bad, with my fish and chips coming out fresh and hot. They didn't have my favorite beer, but had a National b ... read more

The crab balls, cream of crab soup, Crab Cakes, & Crab Imperial were all crab-tastic (excellent!), as were the drinks we enjoyed- orange crush with freshly squeezed oj! The service was extremely slow (we were seated at 7pm, but did not get our appetizers until after 8:30pm), but since we were fortunate to have a table right on the wa ... read more

Passed through Cambridge, MD on our way home from Assateague Island and decided to give Portside a try. Got to the restaurant around 7:00 pm on a Tuesday and were immediately seated out back on the water. The hostess was upfront and communicative that the food may be a bit slower coming out. We were fine with this (who doesn't have a ... read more

Just had dinner here tonight and it was wonderful! Not sure why the rating for this restaurant is low because the food was amazing. We had to wait for 30 minutes for a table but it is during the pandemic and it was around the dinner rush hour. I think we can all be a little more forgiving during this time. The staff also worked very ... read more

Our party stopped at Portside for a lunch gathering, had a good time. Plates were full, food was good as was your waitress. Not much traffic in the water, a couple boats came which was cool, all in all, we'll put it on our "go back again" list.

Visiting from Rehoboth Beach, DE
Crab cakes, fries and crab soup was delicious. The tomato on the sandwiches were awful. We removed them from the sandwiches so it wouldn't ruin the taste of the wonderful crab meat. Megan our server was delightful.

My 89 y/o mother and I had lunch here outside. The staff was really great about seating us in an area shaded from the sun, with a great view, and lots of social distancing space.
