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

Having lived in Portland for 7 years, I like to find that one place that I know I can go to on a nice summer day, have a few drinks, listen to music, and enjoy some food. Portland Lobster Co. is all of these things. The atmosphere is very laid back. There is an indoor restaurant part, but the place... More

What a fantastic place. My husband and I visit Portland every year and finally made the trip to PLco. Super fresh food, so many options, great beer, and you can even catch some live music! Not a lot of seating so be prepared to have one person scout out a table while the other orders the food. Also a great... More
