My husband and I ate dinner here over the weekend. The whole experience was really cool. It’s beautiful inside and the service was great. The food was very good, but I recommend going more for the ambiance.

Long standing restaurant in Portland/Old Port but it’s really a tourist trap in its truest form. With so many great culinary delights in Portland, I would go elsewhere. Just saying.

I treated my sisters, grandson and his girlfriend for a Christmas Luncheon. This restaurant is really a ferry boat converted. They have some of the best seafood on the waterfront. Great views of the water, and channel, and they had lovely decorations for the holidays!...More

Went here for lunch with my 20-year old son. We decided to treat ourselves to the best seafood in Portland, and we ordered whole steamed lobsters. The service was great. Our waitress even helped us get every last bit of meat out of the lobster!...More

Portland Maine is a premiere beer city. The local beer is to die for. I would recommend taking a break from the bland and try some real beer!

Our restaurant actually floats, and because it is surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views of Portland Harbor. Our outside decks are great spots to see the sights while enjoying a meal or cocktail. Maine lobster is what we do here and we do it better than anyone.
