Good food, but a little pricey.

I enjoy the atmosphere and the decor as well as the fact it is a "floating" restaurant. The food is good, but not outstanding. It is worth a try, but keep your options open.

We went for the soft shell lobster special last Sunday ($20) for 2 small lobsters and 1 side. They were delicious and a super deal. Also on Sunday night we found a wine promotion on 1 red and 1 white for half price bottles. Most of the guests were eating this lobster special so it works. The server was very... More

Go here if you want to eat a lobster on the water. Food is average and overpriced. Too many good resteraunts in the area to spend your money here. Eat diner or lunch somewhere else and take a stroll here for drinks after.

A floating restaurant on Portland's historic waterfront with free parking! You cannot beat that. The variety of food is good and the quality is excellent. My favorite restaurant on the Portland waterfront.

An interesting restaurant, converted ferry boat. Somewhat upscale with excellent food quality and choices, but worth the price. Pleasant waterfront ambiance, excellent wait staff as far detail and personality. On a future visit, I will surely order the pecan encrusted fish one again.

But if I had one, I'd berth it here. Walking distance to great dining, galleries, nightclubs, much more. Clean and well-lit. Check out DiMillo's floating restaurant or J's Oyster for happy hour overlooking the bay!!!

By walking down to this marina, you are able to get right into the heart of old Portland and see the workings of the marina, the boats coming in and out, and if it is at dusk or in the evening and the lights are on in some of the boats you can see inside some of them - really... More

This place is the typical tourist rip-off with over priced mediocre food and none of the locals will go there so that speaks volumes. Expensive because of the location and they know it and charge for the ambiance which is not edible. Had the food been better it might have been worth the price but $12 for a kids plate... More

Food was good but not exceptional. Service was good and the atmosphere unique. Scampi was OK but I'd choose something different next time.

Thank Ryan G
