Beautiful views from every aspect of the venue. Fantastic food cooked to perfection. Must see if you are in Portland and at least have an appetizer on the deck or waterfront table! Lovely staff owners on site!

Possibly since I love seafood, especially when dining out, and in an east coast area, I expected much more. While the view of our seats were lovely, looking out at the dock, my food selections most likely not their finest. However their lobster soup was...More

Food is ok, but the way most recepies are done simply kill the good quality of the fish. The ambiance is refined and the servers are friendly. Portions are good and the price acceptable.

My wife and I are usually very critical when it comes to restaurants. My last rating for a restaurant was a 1. This is the third time I have dined at DiMillo's over the span of several years and each time I had no complaints....More

This place never disappoints! The prime rib was as tender and juicy as you could get and the potatoes were baked to perfection. My mom had the sirloin steak and she loved it! If you want quality dining in a great atmosphere you need to...More

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.
