This place has a good variety of oysters from the region, cozy atmosphere, welcoming service and good variety of wines and beer. They are located near old town, lots of tourists around, pricing is slightly high, you could find same or similar variety elsewhere for lower pricing if it wasn't for the location. Overall it was a very good experience... More

It had been many years since we have eaten there. The restuarant has been in Portland for over 100 years and it was like walking into a... More

Several natives to Portland had suggested other seafood restaurants but after wandering around, we stumbled upon Dan and Louis Oyster Bar. It's coziness and seafaring theme made it an easy pick. It was an excellent place to unwind after a day of walking and exploring. The service was great and food was excellent. In fact, we ate there twice over... More

we had dinner at Don & Louis Oyster Bar where Holly the bartender not only mixes great drinks but makes all the customers feel like they are old friends.
