  • I was not a rum drinker until Portside came into town. And even if that was all they were good at, I would still give this place high marks.

Full restaurant and bar are still to come, but in the meantime, you can stop by for a pint or growler from one of the 5 or 6 taps they have. You won't be disappointed.
  • Great selection of beer. Staff was helpful, and the food was good. I will definitely go back
