restaurant suggestion

I am looking for a recommendation for a restaurant for supper on a THursday night. We are only visiting Portland for one night. It's my husband and myself and kids 26 and 22years. My 26 y/o is not a seafood fan and usually likes pizza, burgers, salads etc. My 22 year old likes different craft beers. I am not concerned about price but don't want anything too stuffy ( if that 's still a word). We are staying at the Westin.

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest The Grill Room on Exchange St (walking distance from hotel). Good mix of Fish/seafood but more meat-focused.

"My 22 year old likes different craft beers"

Have him stop at Novare Reis for a few beers. Great beer selection (one of the best I have seen anywhere). Food was decent too but nothing to write home about.

The Great Lost Bear on Forest Ave is located only about 5-7 minutes down from the Westin. Features the burgers, salads, wraps your one son may be looking for and a ton of craft beer from Portland and Maine. Hipster vibe to it but have always had a good meal there!
