While in Portland Maine, one should dine at Dimillo's. Wonderful atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, as well as outstanding food.

Food was below average and over priced, service was poor and not friendly. I would say the best part of our lunch was the view from where we sat on the deck of the boat.

If you like lobster, you may like this place. Ordered steamed lobster and the lobster Mac and Cheese- both ok but nothing special. The service was slow- took almost three hours to be seated and get through dinner.

Loved being right on the water and the convenient parking. Very popular so prepare for a bit of a wait but it’s huge and turns over pretty efficiently. Our seafood dishes were all fresh and tasty. Not out of this world good but very nice...More

DiMillo's is always inconsistent, but we had such a disappointing experience last time, we probably won't be back. We are native Mainers who live in Portland and often take friends there as well as celebrate special occasions. Last month we had a reservation for a...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.
