What a gem on a cold winter's night!

I met some friends here for martini Monday and now I know why they are regulars. First of all, $7 Martinis!? Nice! I got the perfect Manhattan and we all shared some happy hour snacks before heading out to dinner. The service was spot on and the bartender was friendly, professional and absolutely... read more

I love this place. It has wonderful drinks, great bar snacks, and a full menu. The ambience is great too. My husband and I enjoy going here after dinner in the Old Port. My only complaint is the servers are hit or miss. We have had wonderful servers who have gone above and beyond what is expected and then some... More

This bar is so unexpected! This is where people meet for drinks as well as stay for a full dinner. The waitstaff was quick, attentive and friendly. Even as the lounge filled with customers, it remained easy to hear your dinner companions. Food was good. We tried it all: lobster sandwich, mussels and a burger. I will definitely return!

My wife had an early morning meeting in downtown Portland so I took a walk looking for a place for breakfast that serves more than coffee shops which only serve pre-made jacked up croissants and egg wraps. I wanted a full breakfast. I stumbled upon The Armory hotel and figured they must serve breakfast. As you would expect it was... More

Our friends were staying in this hotel and our friend had a cast on her leg so we said let's just go back to your hotel for a night cap. The cobblestone's are a little tough with a cast and everything is up hill. The bar is down in the basement of the Portland Regency Hotel. It resembles a men's... More

This place has great ambiance, wonderful cocktails and delicious food. The servers are always friendly and flexible. We always sit at the bar and enjoy the conversations. Try the Armory the next time you are in Portland ME. It is in the lower level of the Regency hotel. You will not be disappointed.

Liked it all, a little pricey but when you are on vacation it is worth the extra money. Would go back there again.
