“Great place to stroll”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

There are so many shops and restaurants you can spend the whole day there. There are plenty of places to sit by the water and enjoy a lobster roll or any other fish you may desire.

“Are you hungry ?”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is where it is all happening! Food food food! It has all kinds of food here to eat. This city is second to San Francisco in how many restraunts it has per square mile. We visited quite a few of the lovely places. Afterwards we would stroll the rather quiet streets back to our hotel. We never once felt scared of walking there at night.

“Stroll Down Commercial St. For a Great taste of Portland”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Commercial St. is a haven of interest for any tourist and also for locals. There are many good places to have lobsters and find good chowders. The Portland Fish Market always features the most fresh seafood and provides good service. There is a wide variety of shops and places to explore, and it has easy access to the Ferry Terminal. Parking is the most difficult issue---there is not nearly enough. The side streets beckon and after darting in and out of a few places, you may find youself on a side street---looking at art, books, nautical items and interestig people, both local and "from away."

“Perfect venue for harbor flavor”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Various restaurants and shops make this a great area for couples to dine, shop and sightsee. A great area to "go back in time" as Old Portland melds with the new.
