Description: 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.

Right on the ocean and food was delicious. The restaurant is at the end of the wharf so it floats...you can’t feel it move but you can see it when looking out at the ocean. I had a crab roll and it was fresh and tasty. Fries were hand cut too. We went for lunch and it was reasonably priced considering it’s right on the water. Aris was a great waiter too very personable and friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

The lobster roll was excellent, so was the New England clam chowder. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere, restaurant is in an old ship in a marina. Food was excellent, prices were reasonable and they had good beer on tap.

Decided to eat some seafood after a long day of driving in the snow. The restaurant is a boat docked right in the harbor. Once inside, we were seated directly and we were greeted by our waitress. After going over the drinks and the specials, she took our drink orders and left us to review the menu. The menu was varied and offered a good selection of entrees. I ordered the special, Scallops with bacon and mustard sauce which was delicious. It was served with baked potato and grilled vegetables. Service was great, food was delicious and the view was outstanding. Most definitely check this place out when in Portland!!

Easy and close parking. Food was outstanding, service was excellent and ambiance was great. Always busy but long waits in the summer. Pricey but worth the cost for what you get.

This was an excellent spot to enjoy the water and seafood. The lobster mac n cheese was to die for with huge chunks of lobsta' as they say in New England! Service was good and the idea that it is an actual ship adds to the charm! A return destination! Plus, a quaint little town to walk around.
