Seafood
A contemporary Northwest fish house with a modern accent. Expect the finest service as experienced servers guide you through the menu. The RingSide Fish House is the sibling of the Iconic RingSide SteakHouse and is honored to be chosen as one of Tom Horan's Top Ten Fish Houses in North America. The menu sources only the freshest seafood from local fish mongers and oysterman - but still has steaks and our "Famous Onion Rings"for those who want the classic RingSide experience.

    overpriced, very salty, brought food out in the wrong sequence even after specifically discussed . ran out of a specific type of oyster because of the error in bringing out oysters first. Ate at Southpark Seafood the night before and it was great.

    Highly rated but overrated in our opinion. The only thing truly outstanding was the service. Gazpacho was a delicious creamy carrot soup, but not gazpacho. Sweet gems greens was romaine. Octopus was just a bit overdone. To be fair, halibut was excellent. Overpriced for what we got.

    There are so many great restaurants in Portland this would not be one I would recommend. I had crab cakes they were so so. Being in Portland these crab cakes should have been outstanding. They were small and deep fried. I had mushroom risotto and it was so salty.

    I brought some friends from out of town in for dinner, we had an amazing experience at RingSide Fish House. From the moment we walked in we were treated like old friends. The host staff was very welcoming and professional. And well dressed, I appreciate that. Our server, Nick did a wonderful job. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, very helpful with wine choices, and very handsome. It's apparent that the staff here works well as a team, four staff members brought out our entrees, very impressive. This way we could all eat together and not be uncomfortable waiting for the rest of the food to come. The food was amazing. We had a salmon collar, octopus, and a whole, fried Oregon perch, to name a few of our choices. We could tell a lot of thought and care went into our dining experience. Thank you Ringside Fishhouse for a great time and great food.
