At first blush, Outliers seems like a gem. The atmosphere is cozy and the finishes are sophisticated and funky. It's a nice location with a great view of the Casco Bay Bridge, a little off the beaten path. Service was pretty fine and staff were friendly. But if only the food was as good as the ambiance. My husband had... More

We did a lot of research on restaurants before our weekend with friends in Portland. This is a foodie city that prides themselves on local everything so we decided to try out Outliers Eatery. First impression, great atmosphere and design. We had drinks at the bar first which were fantastic. Then we sat down to being our dinning experience. The... More

Friends suggested this little place away from many other restaurants. However, it was very unassuming from the outside. Once we went in, we were warmly greeted by the hostess. The six of us sat at a window table overlooking the harber with fantastic views. The decor of the place was tastefully modern. Nice music in the background - modern but... More

We had met a few friends down at outliers this past weekend and were blown away!! The restaurant is beautiful with a trendy vibe and the menu was very enticing. Our server, who was adorable and sweet, paired all of our meals with wine and it was impeccably done. I ordered the scallops which melted in my mouth and my... More

Outliers draws you in immediately with an unusual and inviting atmosphere. Poised above the harbor across the street from a small park, it offers outdoor seating, with flame heaters running to take off the chill on the early fall evening we visited. The multilevel backdrop to the bar and the unique pendant lights were intriguing and inviting at the same... More

What a wonderful surprise this little gem, Outliers, is! Starting with the staff, who are all so nice and friendly to the intricate and delicious food. The mussels, the pigs ears, even the salads were delish! Our entrees, the lobster, the scallops, the ramen, and the pasta with eggplant were so tasty! We cannot wait to go back to try... More

We were heading to Maine for the weekend and intended to dine in Portland on our way up when we realized a local friend might be there so we texted her and learned that she and her family were eating at Outliers Eatery on York Street. Not having a particular place in mind, we crashed their party in this bit... More

Picked this place from TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The decor is very interesting although the chairs are a bit uncomfortable. The local oysters were outstanding. The number of clams was small but very tasty. A great selection of beers especially locals ones is available as well as a good wine list. All and all a very good experience.

I would really like to write a glowing review of this place but somehow the food never makes it to star quality. First the good things. Parking is usually not a problem, nice selection of beer on tap and nice atmosphere. Service is very good. The problem is the food. They seem to try hard and get 90% of the... More
