Stumbled upon this restaurant during a visit to Hyannis. Really nice food - especially the pizza - and very friendly and helpful waitress. Would highly recommend.

The burger was great, very tasty and the double cookie with vanilla ice cream superb. Friendly staff and close to the center. Great place.

Great place for meeting friends and having a bunch of appetizers to share. Love their nachos. Pizza is pretty amazing and home made pasta dishes are always to die for.

This building has housed a series of ill-fated restaurants over the years. The Portside Tavern has finally broken the jinx. My son had his usual chicken sandwich with a side of beet salad, while I went for the pork chop and vinegar peppers with onion...More

I actually gave the restaurant a three, not a one. That was because I felt the food was just OK, along with having one dish sent back and one that just wasn't very good.
