Went to the Old Port Sea Grill for New Years Eve dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of food and the service. I generally don't recommend judging a restaurant on a major holiday because they are usually under the gun --...More

Thank you for your feedback. Firstly, all of our produce is delivered fresh from our vendors. The scallops are U-10's, which are quite large and priced accordingly. You would be hard-pressed to find a better quality scallop that size at any other restaurant for less...More

We had a late night snack here. The waitress was wonderful and service very prompt. Food was good for the price. Very spartan atmosphere.

Off-season, Sunday evening, looking for some happy hour oysters. Arrived just before cut-off, Justin, the GM, could not have been more accommodating. Enjoyed a dozen local, plus some clams, several martinis ... wonderful evening. Ambience could not have been better.

No, does not have outside tables, but if you can sit in the tables in front of the big windows, you feel as if you are outside!

Description
TO VIEW OUR CURRENT MENU, please visit our website. The Old Port Sea Grill, opened in the fall of 2002, is located in the heart of Portland's historic Old Port district. Our modern interior features a custom concrete bar, a large lounge area and a dining room that can accommodate up to 60 guests and features a 250 gallon salt water fish tank. Our seafood driven menu focuses on a variety of local and imported fresh fish and shellfish, with an emphasis on east coast cold water oysters and other raw bar offerings. We pair that with a food-friendly wine list, local craft-style beers on draft and an extensive cocktail program to make for an exciting dining experience.
