I have 2 missing upper molars on either side of my mouth. Don't want to spend lots of money on implants or crowns. Mostly concerned with having replacements for eating. Other than that, I don't notice them missing or care.

Are partial dentures an option for either side? If so, are they uncomfortable?

Good day

Partial upper dentures can be an option yes. They are also cheaper. I have found that upper partial dentures are more tolerable, although in the end it is still something removable.
It is important to make sure the teeth supporting the partial denture are also sound.
You can always use this as a temporary option until you can afford something more permanent.

Only replacing the last 2 molars by making a denture is likely to be uncomfortable. I doubt you will find a denture to be worth the trouble and cost.
