This place is in a terrible part of town, Dirty, Homeless everywhere and very high prices. If you want to be mugged this is the place to be at night. Disgusting.

The crew here have seen everything and they have their stuff together. The seafood gumbo was amazing and of a portion size that can satisfy even the Kraken. The ciopino (sp?) came chocked full of seafood delights. Our server, bartender and 76 year old family...More

I'm gonna go ahead and give this place 5 stars because the older lady at the bar was super nice and friendly. While doing our walking tour, we stopped outside this place, which apparently is haunted or has a ghost captain walking around sometimes. We...More

This was our sole reason for stopping in Portland. Menu, apparently, hasn’t changed much. Went for lunch and sat on patio with our dogs. Very friendly waitress. Good food: I had fish tacos that were very small but tasty; should have ordered the three! Husband...More

A fun little place with old-time ambiance and decor mixed with a touch of modern class, Dan and Louis is a must if you like oysters or steamers. Even the salad I ordered was outstanding, with fresh, crisp veggies and a house-made vinaigrette. Their extensive...More

We used to frequent this place and they had great food and good service. They have whittled down the menu to a single sheet with very few options. The Crab Louis that we loved is no longer. Try either of Jake's... More
