After hearing great things about this place we decided to give it a try. After being serviced tap water in a fancy bottle and being brought the wrong order of oysters we got our appetizer with no plates. Our waiter was great, very accommodating and deserves to work in a better restaurant . Overall, we won't be going back to... More

I'd seen Eventide Oyster Company listed as one of the best places to get Oysters in the area and took advantage of it for lunch on a recent trip. I love oysters and had recently been to several places in the Boston area to sample some of the local varieties. As such, I was very excited to have lunch at... More

This place is awesome. I have nothing bad to say about it. All the bartenders are great, but Ryan was especially sweet and cool to my husband and I. The food is just ridiculously good...they do this horseradish ice (they have other flavors of ice too, it just depends on the menu that night) that you put on your oysters... More

The clam chowder was not super creamy or super chunky, what it was was delightfully fresh and flavorful. The lobster roll was delicious and their potato chips and biscuits made on the premises were fantastic! Definitely will be returning the next time I'm in town.

This place is my afternoon lunch stop before flying out every other Friday. Dependable service and great oysters from multiple local bays. Also have great seasonal items such as Maine scallops currently in season. Sometimes a wait for a table, but worth it. Friendly competent servers too. Highly recommended.

If you find yourself in Portland, Maine (which is a delightful town), don't leave until you have had oysters at Eventide Oyster Co. My husband and I started with 2 dozen each of the local ones and then had one more dozen from the West coast. THE BEST!! We could have more, but it was only lunchtime. We ended with... More

This small but customer-friendly restaurant was a great lunch stop for 4 Ohioans making their first trip to Maine. We had our first lobster rolls here, as well as a sampler of oysters which were fresh and wonderful! A bit of a wait for a table or bar stool, but worth the wait. We were served drinks while we waited... More

We visited Portland to see a show at the state theater, and it just happened to fall on my birthday. We had brunch reservations at eventide. They were able to accommodate our party of 7 even though the place is tiny. We had a ton of food....chef's choice 2 dozen mixed oysters on the half shell, oyster rolls, lobster rolls,... More
