We came across this restaurant while walking along the waterfront. It looked good. There was quite a wait to get a table but there was a really big bar to wait at. The food was very good. I had the seafood scampi. The New England...More

Dimillos had several good reviews so we decided to check it out prior to going on the Wicked Walking Tour in Portland. Recommend making a reservation as we were seated immediately whereas those who walked in without one had to wait 15-30 minutes just to...More

Stopped in for dinner on the deck. The view is wonderful. Service was great and the food marvelous. Had seafood pasta with shrimp, lobster, mussels and scallops. My wife had salmon. Both dishes were excellent.

Went there last night for dinner and set up top on deck. Gorgeous view! Food ok, not bad but not what it used to be. For the price, we could have looked at other options. Server was nice but slow.

We went to Portland two couples and we were both told to go here for lobster rolls. We made it our first stop on vacation for lunch. What a way to start a holiday, lunch on the top floor of a ship, chowder, lobster roll,...More

What a view we had with dinner! The food was DELICIOUS and the staff was Awesome! The twin lobster dinner was by far the best lobster I've ever eaten. They serve only local food.

After hearing about this place we gave it a try. Nothing to write home about. Overpriced food and service just so so. Next visit to Portland we'll make sure to ask locals where they eat.

Good location for a Seafood Restaurant, staff excellent, very good menu and food - we were fortunate enough to witness a double rainbow form from our table just beautiful. Heaters arfe located on the outdoor decks just in case the weather is cooler.

I first visited DiMillo's in the early 1980s, which was also the first time I visited Portland. The eatery was popular then as a colorful "floating restaurant" known for its fresh seafood, and not much has changed, except maybe the crowds, which have grown larger....More

This place serves decent food with wonderful views as it is a big boat that sits on the water. It's not the best food in Portland but it's a nice place to go and get it good meal with great views.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I have a reservation for a large party coming up in a week at DiMillo's. We are very much looking forward to it! We have one VEGAN eater and one vegetarian in the group. Can anything be made without at animal products (no butter, cheese, eggs, etc.) for the vegan eater? I imagine the cheese can be omitted from the salads but I have a question if the candied nuts are made with butter. Also, I am not sure if the menu posted online is the most cirrent jowever ai swee there is a pasta with marinara sauce which includes a meatball--is the meat seperste from the sauce to begin with or is it made together? Any and all help you may provide is greatly apprexiated. Thank you so much!!!

Portland Maine is a premiere beer city. The local beer is to die for. I would recommend taking a break from the bland and try some real beer!

Our restaurant actually floats, and because it is surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views of Portland Harbor. Our outside decks are great spots to see the sights while enjoying a meal or cocktail. Maine lobster is what we do here and we do it better than anyone.
