    We loved the halibut here, the clam chowder is different than any place we have ever been with clams in the shell and gnocchi instead of potatoes. The blueberry cobbler was also outstanding. Luke was our awesome waiter.

    Southpark has always been a favorite, but this visit, the first since Covid hit, was disappointing. High on the list of disappointments was that there's no pizza on the menu anymore. Our waiter was great and overall service was quick, if a little lacking on details. For instance, one of my friends asked for no croutons on her salad, but got them anyway. It was unanimously decided that one of our favorite appetizers, the brussel sprouts, we're much too salty. My meal was just not very satisfying. Whereas the brussels were over the top, my bacon-wrapped cod and navy beans was simply bland. I'm sure I will go back, just to see if this was a one-time off experience, but it won't be with my usual enthusiasm. especially if they don't get pizza back on the menu.

    We loved this restaurant and we will definitely go back. The only things that were a negative, in our opinion, was the Brussels sprouts were burned beyond a char and we went for a birthday meal, which we noted in the reservation, and nothing special was said or done. A note on the table would have been nice, and we never expect free food, but at least an acknowledgement was kind of expected. Back to the food. The halibut, ahi tuna poke salad, and chowder were wonderful! The oysters were fine, but that is always based on supply so sometimes you get a winner and sometimes they aren’t. The watermelon mignonette was really good on them. Our waitress was very attentive even though the place was packed. Like I mentioned before, the Brussels sprouts were acrid tasting, so we sent them back with no fuss. Unfortunately, the table next to us ordered them too and they looked like they were prepared exactly the same as ours and they ate them, so this might just be our preference that our sprouts are cooked less and not burnt like paper. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that is in a seafood mood. I still can’t get over how good that halibut with harissa broth, corn, zucchini, and clams was so good!! FYI, the food is a little pricey, but we’ll worth it.

    Positives: The service was beyond excellent from beginning to end. Truly! The oysters were good and the brussel sprouts were tasty. Negatives: We ordered the shrimps and grits and it was a bit underwhelming with the small shrimp and soupy grits. Also, the fish and chips weren’t as crispy as we would have liked. It was fine but just… fine. Will go back as the cocktails were good, but we know what to order next time food wise.

    The only surprise we had that as soon as we arrived for our reservation we were told that we only had 2 hours at our table. This is a reasonable amount of time for my husband and I to complete our meal but we felt this was an unfriendly way to begin the evening.

    I love this restaurant, but we were given a very small table this time that didn’t accommodate the amount of food we ordered. The shrimp in my Caesar salad was also very salty this time, as it never had been before. Was also very disappointed that they removed the Manila clams from the appetizer menu. I have to say this was the least impressed I’ve been since discovering this place. But I have to say I will still go back, because the clam chowder, and Dungeness crab roll are the most amazing I’ve ever tasted! Still a winner In my book, even though the experience could’ve been better.

    Delicious food, excellent service, and wonderful location! We were in Portland proper to see Jimmy O. Yang's comedy performance, and Southpark Seafood was conveniently located only 3 minutes away on foot. We started with the Dungeness crab roll, and it was our favorite item that we had. It was juicy, seasoned well, and on a lovely crispy, buttery roll. Highly recommend! I then got the halibut for my entree, which was bathing in a delicious, delicate harissa-spiced sauce. It was amazing. My husband went with the fish and chips, and the fries were so perfectly seasoned and came with a habanero aioli (we love spice), that we ended up getting another to split. Our waitress (I can't remember her name), was so wonderful, friendly, did not leave us wanting for anything, and yet, was not intrusive at all. Both my husband and I also thought their old fashioned was exceptional - just a hint of orange. Overall, we have put it on our list of places to return to. Everyone should definitely check this place out!

    This was our second time for dinner here, the last time was about five years ago while visiting Portland our last time. The clam chowder is incredible - served with clams in shell and gnocchis which are pillowy soft in a tastey cream base. Entrees of salmon and cod were both delicious and cooked perfectly. Very attentive service.

    My husband and I ordered the fish & chips (3 pieces) and a caesar salad to share. Our waiter was prompt and did everything he should. The fish & chips came and I tasted a chip that was soggy and so salty I couldn't eat it. When I cut into the fish - there was a tiny amount of fish with a whole lot of coating. I complained to the manager and she brought us a new plate. OK, there was more fish inside the still plentiful coating but there was NO TASTE. They didn't salt the chips which were still soggy and tasteless and what little coleslaw there was (like 3 tbsp) was smothered with dressing. We couldn't eat our dinner. The caesar salad was mediocre at best because the dressing was bland and watery. I told the manager that this was the worse fish & chips I'd ever had but she made no move to alter the price for us. We tipped the waiter as it wasn't his fault but I'll never go back.

    Food is always great. Restaurant seems to be busy which is great to see. Seating outside is a nice option for those wanting to sit outside. Interior service this go around was just ok and the waiter was not very attentive and only checked on us once. Always a must have is the fish and chips.

    I’ve always enjoyed south park. It has been a go to for out of town guests and as a referral restaurant. I made a reservation for 5 a few days prior. When we arrived, we were led to our table a semi-circular booth in the bar. My group, all men. 3 of us over 6’ 1”. There was no way we could all sit at that table. When I asked if we could move, the answer was no, I’m sorry, due to staffing we can’t seat you anywhere else. One of my guests was forced to sit perched on a bar stool for what should have been a productive 2 hour lunch. Instead, we left after an hour. A wasted opportunity. A completely unprofessional experience. The service was poor with finished plates being removed very slowly. I think a natural potential problem when being parked in a corner. I think the wait staff were surprised by the 5 of us. The front of house didn’t tell them there were 5, two came in a bit behind the first three. Water glasses were delivered 3,1,1. Set ups were delivered 3,1 with the fourth requiring a request. One of my guests ordered clam chowder. He wasn’t delivered a spoon until requesting it and that came when the next drive by of wait staff happened, which was well into the meal. Adding insult to injury, two of us ended up with good born intestinal challenges. I’d say management is absolutely missing the beat. A tremendously disappointing experience especially given past success. This should have been a home run.

    Southpark SeafoodResponded on July 28, 2022Hello Grimm, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear we failed to deliver you the level of service our guests have come to expect from Southpark Seafood. I assure you that that is not the norm, as you it sounds like you already know from previous experiences. I hope you will give us another opportunity to show you a true Southpark Seafood experience. Sincerely, Jason Gerlt - GM

    Beet salad and mango dessert were outstanding. The fish was okay. We picked a seafood restaurant, hoping for outstanding fish. They were out of cod at 7 pm. Really? The halibut was dry, the corn was canned and the zucchini was soggy. Disappointing main courses. Service was fine. Had to wait 10 minutes even with a reservation.
