Our group loved our time at Dimillo's for my Mother's Birthday dinner. She wanted twin lobster and she loved every single bite. We also ordered steamers (they were so sweet and perfectly cooked) and lobster mac and cheese. If you're looking for a large wine...More

This is a floating ship with different sections. We ate in the back section, which is much quieter. The lobster rolls we had for lunch were very good. There is also a good selection of wine and beers. Portland is the home of the Shipyard...More

Let's begin with getting the parking stub, driving around the full parking lot for 20 minutes ( the one of 5 attendants could have said parking full) getting annoyed, giving stub back on the way out. Really wanted a nice experience at DiMillo's which we...More

My wife had French onion soup and salad both very good. I had salmon which actually was equally as great as the best salmon I have ever had in any restaurant including many in northwest and Alaska. Service excellent.

This is a classic Portland restaurant in an old ship (or ferry) situated on the water. The ambiance and scenery are great. The food is terrific, too. I ordered the planked scallops with rice and broccoli. The meal was awesome. It's a bit pricey, but...More

Great place by the harbor with nice views. Great food. Scampi, calamari were tasty. Terrible service. Server forgot to bring wine. Claimed to be busy, but she sat at one customer's table nearby two times to chit chat.

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.
