This is our go to spot for dinner. We can always find something great on the menu. Nice selection ranging from plenty of appetizers to share, sandwiches, salads and full meals. They always have interesting specials. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is super friendly. If you are looking for a view, you may get one on the... More

Snow Squall has a great menu with nightly specials and great cocktails. The kids menu is great if you are looking for a family night out. Live music on certain nights of the week and the patio is wonderful in the summer.

I met some friends there on a Thursday evening. We had very comfy chairs next to a fireplace. Was very well attended by a sweet waitress. Moved into the dining room and sat near a different fire place. Wonderful food and setting! Loved it.

This place was a little difficult to find, but when we got there the service was very good. The food was fair and not that well prepared.

The food was ok, we had nachos that were a little crispy. Not bad but just not great. We were there later at night and definitely got the feeling they wanted us to leave.

We visited late on Saturday of Labor Day Weekend. We got there right before they closed, and they were very gracious and did not rush us at all. Went with a party of 6. Lobster and Scallop Risotto was highly recommended by locals, so four of our party tried it because it was quick and easy to order. It was... More

We were not told the specials by waitress. Service was very slow. Our meals were mixed up but we did not realize until after we had begun eating, so did not change as we are just casual friends. Perhaps salad and soup would have been a better choice. Not sure I would go back to find out since meal I... More

We stubbled upon this hidden restaurant in South Portland after visiting the Art in the Park festival in Mill Creek. There was plenty of outdoor seating unfortunately with parking lot view. Inside there was numerous seating options, from regular tables to comfy couch seating, and several high top tables in the bar area. We tried the Blackened haddock over kale... More

Drive-by choice... And it was a great one. We started with bacon wrapped scallops, followed by a cup of haddock chowder, and finished of with the burger plate and Brie and fruit plates. The scallops were very good. Chowder was flavorful and light... Scrumptious. I had a taste of my husband's burger... VERY flavorful. My favorite was the Brie and... More
