Absolutely fell in love with the Portland Maine Lobster Company! As a lobster lover, this was heaven. It was within walking distance of our hotel and we visited this location multiple times over a long July 4th weekend. This restaurant is on the wharf on the waterfront, open May-November for lunch and dinner. They serve steamed lobster dinners, clam chowder,... More

If you are looking for the ultimate Lobster Roll, or any seafood dish, this is a great place for it. Located on a wharf at the waters edge, the fresh salt air and outdoor seating will put you in the right mood for their tasty and fresh seafood. The lobster rolls are fantastic, as are their fried clams, but if... More

Travelled to Portland, Maine for a conference we ended up going out to dinner here. This was the best lobster I have ever tasted. Fresh, excellent texture, and delightful! A great place to relax and enjoy some fantastic Maine Lobster!

Rainy Wednesday night in Portland and here's where I end up. Didn't know what I was getting into, but saw all the reviews on Yelp and figured....why the heck not?! This place has a weird layout, not what I was expecting at all, but I loved it. I ordered a scallop roll and the steamed mussels. It's pretty interesting how... More

Great stop for a lobster roll during our New England states road trip. The fried clams are great too. Try a local ice tea and chips as well. Delicious treat! Located in a lovely waterside area to stroll and souvenirs.

Every year when we come up to Maine to visit family we stop in Portland's water front to walk a little and eat some seafood. The food here is good, and you can sit outside over looking the harbor and watch boats come in and out. Pricing is good and the staff is very friendly.. Keep in mind there is... More
