The Portside Restaurant has been serving Northwest inspired steak and seafood entrees in a spectacular setting to local residents and tourists of the Oregon Coast since the early 1960's. Then the "Holiday House", the restaurant was well known for having the freshest seafood on the Oregon Coast. In 1977 the name was changed to the Trawler, but the high standard of quality service remained. The name "Portside" was adopted in 1979. In 1983, the Tang family purchased the Portside Restaurant, continuing the tradition of fine, local dining. In order to improve and maintain the highest standards for quality ingredients, they also purchased a fishing boat to ensure delivery of the freshest seafood to the table. The "Portside I" delivered fresh crab, salmon, halibut, and bottom fish directly to the restaurant until June 2, 1986, when it sank one mile off the Charleston Bar in bad weather conditions. Subsequently, the restaurant concentrated on creating fresh, local cuisine and left the daily delivery of fresh seafood to the finest local fishing fleet in Charleston Harbor. On October 5, 1993, a kitchen fire shut the restaurant down for a month, but it was rebuilt and folks near and far continue to return to the Portside Restaurant to experience fresh, local, northwest-inspired cuisine overlooking a spectacular setting and to peruse the local history depicted on the Portside's walls. In 2012, we welcomed the grand opening of The Sushi Garden restaurant within the Portside's walls where fresh seafood beautifully and artistically prepared has been a welcome addition to the fine food already offered. Come in and experience what the Portside Restaurant and the Sushi Garden has to offer!
