Good food, but a little pricey.

I enjoy the atmosphere and the decor as well as the fact it is a "floating" restaurant. The food is good, but not outstanding. It is worth a try, but keep your options open.

We went for happy hour and were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. We had mussels that were wonderful and for only $6.00 at happy Hour. The bar is very comfortable and friendly servers. The chowder is great also and only $3.00 for a cup.

All of the seafood at this restaurant was exceedingly excellent at every meal. We dined here about 30 times while in Portland! Lobster--both whole, steamed, lobster rolls, fried lobster and countless lobster specials---like, yes, even a lobster ruben sandwich were top notch. A fabulous Sunday lobster special served only the bar after 5 pm during the winter months, included two... More

We spent four days over Maine restaurant week and hands down the creamy lobster mac and cheese dish and maine blueberry cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream was one of the most memorable dishes. Service was very good and interesting location at the port, right on the water.

Dimillo's has been around for ages and its good for what it is but that's just it...its a floating restaurant with good views but service, food and everything else is "eh." It has an old school Frank Sinatra feel to it but there are SOOO many other great eateries in Portland especially today that I wouldn't waste my time unless... More

We went for the soft shell lobster special last Sunday ($20) for 2 small lobsters and 1 side. They were delicious and a super deal. Also on Sunday night we found a wine promotion on 1 red and 1 white for half price bottles. Most of the guests were eating this lobster special so it works. The server was very... More

Go here if you want to eat a lobster on the water. Food is average and overpriced. Too many good resteraunts in the area to spend your money here. Eat diner or lunch somewhere else and take a stroll here for drinks after.

A floating restaurant on Portland's historic waterfront with free parking! You cannot beat that. The variety of food is good and the quality is excellent. My favorite restaurant on the Portland waterfront.
